    200 pounds is always 200 pounds.

    I've been around here for a couple years, learned a lot of things, and even got bigger and stronger from 2005 to halfway through 2006. Then came the house, wife, and baby. I no longer made time to get to the gym or eat good. My daughter is nearly seven months old, and we're all in a decent routine now. It's time to get serious again.

    I'm 27 years old, 6'2" and 177 lbs. I don't really like that. I don't want to be a pro bodybuilder or powerlifter, but I want to get a lot bigger and stronger than I am now. I don't know if it's possible for me, but I would like to be a lean 220-230 lbs without the use of AAS. I'm starting a journal so I can get a little encouragement and a kick in the ass if I start getting lazy. My first few workouts will be trying to find out where I stand and what numbers I put up.

    I usually get up early before work to lift, I've been doing chest/shoulders/tris, back/bis, and legs. I start to feel weak after 20-30 minutes, so I try to keep the workouts short and relatively intense. I'm open to criticism and suggestions for routine, diet, etc.

    Yesterdays back workout:

    Chinups - 3,4
    Deadlift - 2x5x135
    DB rows - 2x8x45

    I feel like I need to add a little more in there. Three exercises seems too short. With only seven chinups, I don't know if my lats got enough attention.
