Hey guys, I am here today to start my new journey of self-improvement, not just bodybuilding, but overall self-improvement. I believe the confidence you get from being BIG and just the whole idea and concept of it is worth every minute you spend in the gym, and every single piece of food you eat.
I used to workout quite a bit about a year ago, stopped back in late March of last year, almost hit 150lbs and I was quite big for my size, had alot of compliments, people asking me if I am a bodybuilder, etc. I was pleased with the results but then I got a gf and completely forgot about the gym, moved in with her, basically sat on my ass and did nothing for a year. Now I am done with her and I am back, better than ever.
All the pain and frustration I went thru in the last couple months will be worth it in the end, I am planning to really transform myself in all areas of life, including wealth and relationships.
Here are my current stats.
Weight: 120 LBS
BF: Will be measured very soon, very low, I have a natural 8 pack
Squat: 135 x 6
Deadlift: 135 x 4
Bench: 175 x 4
Bicep Curl: 25 x 4
My goals are to basically reach and surpass my previous weight of 150LBS. I am hoping to be around 160 LBS and be about 8% BF or less, and basically be ripped and huge, more like I was before. I want to keep pushing the limits of my body, I want to get as big as I possibly can ultimately, basically my limit genetically without steroids.
My workout plan will basically be the same program I followed earlier, just more intense and focused. I did the program completely half-assed before, basically just doing the workouts and not much else. I ate sporadically and very infrequently, rarely slept more than 5 hours, partied all the time, drank alcohol, smoked, everything that you DON'T do when you workout. And I still got some pretty good results, probably got 30 lbs of muscle in just under a 4 month period.
I did use Mass XXX and a few supplements like NO2 but nothing else.
I am planning to take this stuff much more seriously, and I really want to change my physique and my life, I am motivated and I cannot be stopped!
I did a few workouts basically just to gauge where my strength was at, and man, it is almost funny compared to me about a year ago. Not only has my strength decreased, but wearing a wifebeater in the gym isn't as fun anymore, I have a really good self-image of myself, but I have gotten used to being buff and now it just isn't the same.
Anyway I got into the gym on Sunday, basically did my whole workout, my bench went down from 315 to about 165, what a difference. The rest was pretty much more disappointment but anyway it's just the beginning and I will just ignore what I currently lift and look at everything as an improvement, not me getting weaker. Weighed in at 122 lbs.
Tuesday was my leg day, did some squats, man my legs were shaking with just 135lbs, anyways I just used lighter weight and worked on my form, using a 3/1/1 tempo with 3 being the negative, form is more important than weight. Weighed myself in at 120 lbs. This motivated me even more and I went home and ate like crazy.
Thursday gym was closed so I skipped my bicep workout, basically didn't do until Saturday, bicep curls down from 45 to 25 max basically, I can only do a few reps with good form, so that will definetely be something I am gonna work on.
I have been eating alot since then, sleeping, well, I never had good sleeping habits, I usually club it till about 3 am and depending on what I do after I am usually sleeping only around 5-7am, not that big of a deal I am quite used to it.
12/30/2009 - Today, Wednesday (1:55 AM), just finished my job training classes so I should have more free time, couldn't work out on Monday or Tuesday due to the classes, and Saturday and Sunday I don't even remember, I just partied too much. I am ready to take this more seriously and make some new changes now and I feel like a new commitment is in order.
I will be hittin up the gym tomorrow though, Wed 12/30, starting with my Leg workout since I don't want to wait another week to start on my chest. I'll be doing Legs Wed, Bicep/Back on Thurs or Fri, and then I can officially start on Sunday. It's gonna be a long journey but I am prepared.
I will try and take some pics and post them tomorrow, I have no idea how to use Photoshop so I will have to do some research on that but, hopefully I'll have some pics up soon.
