Okay, so I started working out again after about 6 months of starvation and drug abuse and I went through a spiritual change which I am sure none of you want to hear about lol.
I would like to know what your opinions on my progress is and if you have any tips for helping my gain mass, my real main goal is to make my arms look much better from the front view and to improve my pecs. I am not so worried about abs right now as it is not hard to get those, I'm just not so concentrated on them but I did incorporate them in my most recent workout that I have posted a picture for.
My first picture of my super pale in black shorts is after my first workout (1/23/12) I didn't think about taking side photos at the time so I used a side photo from after my second workout (1/26/12). The other three "tanner" looking pictures are from one of my most recent workouts (3/16/12).
I have been using BSN N.O. Explode 2.0 for my pre-workout shake and ON Pro-Complex whey protein for my after-workout shake.
During my first workout I did either a 3-set or 4-set workout (3 exercises per set), since then I have been adding sets and for the past month I have been doing 8-set workouts (24 exercises and sometimes extra) and I always listen to some heavy metal whilst working out
I will now list a typical work-out of mine.
Set 1: Bench press, underhand pull-ups, and bicep curls
Set 2: Bench press, overhand pull-ups, and triceps extensions
Set 3: Bench press, another kind of pull-up I have no name for, and preacher curls
Set 4: Bench press, triceps extensions, and squats
Set 5: Bench press, bicep curls, and another exercise I have not a name for involving a bench press and dumbbells and me lifting them horizontally from the sides to above me chest
Set 6: Bench press, triceps extensions, and squats
Set 7: Bench press, triceps extensions, and preacher curls
Set 8: Bench press, triceps extensions, and bicep curls
I hope I hit it on the money for my goals but take note that I LOVE to mix-up my routine but this is a typical one I do and they usually involve all the exercises involved in the example routine above.
I would use a barbell for my squats but I have not a power rack in my bedroom so I can not do that so I just use a really heavy dumbbell and do somewhere over 100 squats purposely forgetting to count and going back to my last remembered number so I end up doing a lot more
I would love to hear what you all have to say.
Namaste, peace and love.
Edit: I forgot to mention my weight started around 140 Ib and I am 145 Ib now.
