    Just a skinny kid trying to get big.

    I've been going to the gym for about five months, but haven't gained much weight. so, this is a log that will track my progress as i get bigger. i started a strength training program today, and i have been trying to bulk up for about a month. I'm 6'3" 170lb and I'm 18. supplements I'm going to be using are con-cret, C4 pre workout, optimum pro complex gainer, opti-men multivitamins, and optimum fish oil.

    here's the workout i did today:

    Front squats 3x5 135lb
    military dumbbell press 3x5 40lb
    dead lifts 1x5 185lb
    dips 2x20
    tricep pushdown 3x8 85lb

    (i know, I'm pretty weak right now.) when i do dead lifts i really feel it in my lower back. I'm not sure if my form is wrong, or if thats how its supposed to feel.

    tomorrow's workout

    squat 3x5
    bench press 3x5
    chin ups 20
    rows 3x5
    curls 3x8

    i just alternate those two workouts, and i will be trying to add as much weight as i can each week while still keeping good form.

    i took some pictures today so i could do a before and after, but i can't figure out how to upload them haha

    any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    in on dis log for progress. I'm pretty weak as well haha. That's a lot of supplements you're taking as a beginner. Why take all that stuff and spend so much money? I honestly think you could get by with the postworkout shake and maybe the multivitamin. That's it. I just get a post-workout myself and try to get most of my vitamins from foods I eat (vegetables fruits, that kinda health ish) but that's mainly cuz im a poor college student haha. I can't afford all them supplements. Seeing movies is expensive these days haha

    Also, a split is where you "split" up your routine and work different body parts on different days. For example,
    Day 1: Chest/Tri's
    Day2: Back/Bi's
    Day3: Rest
    D4: Legs
    D5: Rest

    you know, somethin like that. If I'm not mistaken, one day you did front squats and the very next day you did back squats which isn't good for you at all. You gotta lay off those parts at least 3 or so days after you work them out
    Also, that workout you did today is sooooooooooooooo unbelievably much more than you need to be doing. (EDIT: just re-read the post. not nearly as much as I thought it was haha. but still working same body parts 2 days in a row=extremely huge no no) especially if you just started working out 5 months ago.
    Look into beginner programs. I've seen Babylover's Starting Strength recommended quite a bit around the forums.
    But like I said earlier, subbed for da progress

    This is babylover's, I just added 2 warm up sets today because I was feeling good haha. And about the supplements, I've bought them over time so it wasn't as expensive. I'm taking the mass gainer because I'm pretty skinny and I have a hard time getting all my calories in. Everything else like the pre workout and creatine are just to help me get more reps and get me going. I was doing the short cut to size workout that I found on bodybuilding.com, but everyone was saying I needed a full body workout and I needed to get stronger so I switched over to babtlovers and added a few warm up sets. Thanks for the sub! Like I said before, I appreciate any advice!

    In. If you haven't been gaining weight try upping your calories by ~500 a day. Make sure you're eating enough bro.

    Yeah today was the first time I tried the mass gainer. I just got it last night. Its about 750 calories so that should help me out quite a bit.

    Yesterday was a rest day, and today I don't have time to make it to the gym. I'm going tomorrow though. I took some pictures that I will post when I get to my computer, probably later on tonight or tomorrow. Also I've gained 2lbs! Now 172lbs

    Not really liking the SS program so I'm doing something else. I'm starting short cut to size tomorrow, I've done this program in the past and really liked it. Also, can someone give me a idea at my bf % right now from the pictures above?

    I'm not the best at estimating bf, but id say about 14%. And remember, it doesn't matter what program you're on as much as you think, as long as you're hitting all your body parts, the real key is staying consistent with your training and diet and not routine hopping too much.

    If you don't feel like your workout is getting you the results you should be getting, don't be afraid to change it.

    I started on a full body workout 3 times a week, that did nothing for me.
    I went on a 5 day split, that worked pretty good for me.
    Then I went on a 3 day split but did it twice a week (so the gym for 6 days a week) and that's when I started getting great results.

    Different workouts work for different people.
    Also if you're not gaining much weight, you really need to eat more.

    I was more skinny than you when I first started a bit over 2 years ago.

    up to about 173lbs. i went to golds gym today with one of my friends. got a good run in since i haven't ran in about 3 months... I'm really thinking about going to a 5x5 until i get stronger. my bench max right now is only at 135 1x5, squats are 190 3x5, i can barbell row 135 5 reps but when i go heavy (for me) my form lacks, so i row about 110 3x5. really wanting to get my numbers up so I'm going to look into different strength programs since i didn't really like babylovers too much. I'm also going to be updating this after every workout from now on giving a summery of the workout i did.

    Been feeling sick the last couple of days. Its been hard to put anything down. I've already lost a couple pounds

    Anyways, I still went to the gym and got my workout in

    Squat 5x5 170lbs
    Deadlifts 1x5 195lbs
    Standing press 5x5 65lbs
    Barbell row 5x5 100lbs
    Close grip bench press 3x8 95lbs
    Barbell curls 3x8 55lbs
    Abs

    Didn't feel very good throughout the whole workout, and I've only ate half a sandwich today.

    Two day program

    Originally Posted by bigmikekc View Post
    I've been going to the gym for about five months, but haven't gained much weight. so, this is a log that will track my progress as i get bigger. i started a strength training program today, and i have been trying to bulk up for about a month. I'm 6'3" 170lb and I'm 18. supplements I'm going to be using are con-cret, C4 pre workout, optimum pro complex gainer, opti-men multivitamins, and optimum fish oil.

    here's the workout i did today:

    Front squats 3x5 135lb
    military dumbbell press 3x5 40lb
    dead lifts 1x5 185lb
    dips 2x20
    tricep pushdown 3x8 85lb

    (i know, I'm pretty weak right now.) when i do dead lifts i really feel it in my lower back. I'm not sure if my form is wrong, or if thats how its supposed to feel.

    tomorrow's workout

    squat 3x5
    bench press 3x5
    chin ups 20
    rows 3x5
    curls 3x8

    i just alternate those two workouts, and i will be trying to add as much weight as i can each week while still keeping good form.

    i took some pictures today so i could do a before and after, but i can't figure out how to upload them haha

    any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
    Hey man, I don't know if you've tried this but it seems to have been working for me.

    I usually do 3 workouts on chest, 3 workouts on triceps, and 3 workouts on shoulders for one day. The next day I'll do back, biceps, and legs. I've done a lot of different programs but the way my schedule works I seem to keep coming back to this. I probably have some sort of workout list with the exercises I do for each category. But yeah check it Out! Hope this helps a bit. If you got any more questions you can just message me or something

    Dislocated a rib pretty bad at the gym last night. Went to the doctor today to get some x-rays. I have to go to a chiropractor so they can pop it into place. So I'll probably take a week off from the gym. Feelsbadman
