Kabob190x's Workout Journal - The long journey to immortality
What's up brahs? I've been working out since the age of 20 (23 now) regularly. I've never really had a workout routine, I've just done whatever I've felt like at the gym. I'm content with my progress except for my chest. I really want to grow my chest more than anything. I also want to grow my calves and delts. Once I've gotten to the size I want, I'll cut down to single digit body fat. I'm not worried about cutting anytime in the near future because I've got gyno and I want to get surgery first and then cut. I'm not worried about aesthetics until I get the surgery because I wont be taking my shirt off until then. Its about $6k for surgery and I don't know how long that will take. I'm definitely not going to get the surgery by this beach season so I might as well just bulk through it. I'm dirty bulking. I don't really put on that much fat as long as I'm working out. I play soccer and basketball a few times a week for cardio. I'm not keeping track of my macros. I'll start doing that fairly soon. For now I've been eating as much eggs, meat, fish, milk, whey and veggies as I can. I'm eating too much sweets. I'm a sucker for chocolates and they are always around the house. I'm going to try my best to cut that out of my diet. My mom also cooks Persian food every night so I don't know how to track those calories so much. I'll just have to guess as much as I can. As far as supplements, I just started creatine 2 days ago. I'm going to be taking 5g/night without a loading phase. Other than that I'm just taking a multi and trying to keep my protein intake high (whey). By posting my journal here, I'm hoping to stay motivated to stay on track. I love working out, so that wont be a problem, its the eating that will be tough.
It's called a beginners workout, but I'm going to do it because I haven't had a solid workout plan since I've started. I'm going to take this workout program as far as it will take me. I've been on it for a week now and I'll post my numbers.
I added calf work because I want bigger calves. I wish my numbers were higher but that's what hard work is for.
I workout Tu/Th/Sa so I'll do my best to keep this updated with my numbers after each workout. I'll be doing workout B on Tuesday. I hate the weekends because its the longest time in between workouts.
My starting stats:
6'3" 225 lbs. (My guess is about 15% bf. I'm not sure. Where do you get measured for this?)
My ultimate goal:
235 lbs. 8% bodyfat or lower (I know this will take years)
Basically I want to look like Lazar Angelov or Zyzz (jk more like Christiano Ronaldo) and be an athletic beast on the soccer field and basketball court.
So I decided to do my workout tonight instead of tomorrow because I was bored and it had been 48 hours since my last workout. I was debating not going because I had a weird soreness in my shoulder (not dat good doms feeling). This is how far I got
As I was doing my shoulder presses, my shoulder started to feel worse and worse so I called it quits after the fourth set when it hurt to lift my arm over my head. Once again, it wasn't that good kind of sore it was a weird discomfort. I had this feeling last year when I bent my shoulder the wrong way while doing overhead dumbell presses so I didn't want to force it to cause an injury. I'll stretch it out and see how I feel in a couple of days. I don't know why I didn't do the ab and calf portion of the workout like I should have.
