Im going to try to start this here, don't know if ill post everyday but ill try..
2/26/04- Measurements in inches
Height- 66'' or 5'6'' - Weight 164 lb. Currently trying to cut bodyfat

Good job starting a journal. I would train lats with back and biceps after both of them.

yea thanks for advice, i already decided to switch shoulders, to biceps/back/shoulders on the same day. It's intense, but I think I can do that especially if I now have a three day split instead of 4. I'll prob add cardio and this will just help me cut down even more.. I was going to try to go for 1800-2200 cals depending on activity/self controll. What do you think is appropriate? Obviouslly some days I work out it'll be slightly more, but I'm more concentrated on fat loss at this point.

you could also do legs friday and shoulders saturday, this would give you more rest from the benching to hit the delts harder

Just use trial and error for the calories. Eat a certain amount for one week, weigh yourself at the beginning and end of that week, and adjust accordingly.
(This is my way of saying that I am not to good with diets. :D)

Lets see.. i am typing with no light so bare w/me.. i did my legs on saturday, but was unable to squat because of some pain in my right knee. i had the pain as i was doing a couple warm up squats, it was as i went back up i felt it.. so i loosened up on the bike and eliptical for another 4 mins stretched, and then tried the leg press. i suceeded.. i truly cant see, my power is out, im on my laptop, so i dont have all my sets and reps.. but i did 5 sets of leg press. and then i did 2 sets of deadlifts. I then did calves on standing machine, sitting calf press, and then calves on leg press. so tired from heavy lifts that i couldnt do ham curls i would have puked will post more organized thoughts later, also today i did back/biceps but no shoulders.. i might do them on chest day after all. peace

Don't worry if you don't use much weight. Everybody starts somewhere. Nobody cares as long as you progress.

okay, i did my legs early today, and once again had a prob with my right knee on squats.. as a matter of fact the knee hurt on deadlifts as well. not a quality quad day today..
Bike for 6-7 mins-Stretched out..
Incline Leg Press- 70x8,140x8,190x6,210x4
Hack squats- 70x6, 110x4 (pain on 4th), 90x4 (more pain:(
Deads: 140x3 stopped cause knee hurt
Seated calf- 90x8,135x7,180x3

Stop doing hack squats. Those are hard on the knees. Take a few days off from stuff that involves your knee and see if it gets better. If it doesn't, then go to a doctor.
