Since all the other kids are doing it and I couldnít find any other appropriate place to start a journal, I figured Iíd do it here.
Iím not a girl, but Iíll post a pic anyway if I can find some.
Iíve reposted this paragraph from another post of mine to sum it up:
Last year at this time I was 249lbs and started the south beach diet. I lost 40lbs on that over 5 months and started eating better than I ever had before. Felt better but knew I could do more. I started off working out in January after being quite sedentary the last ten years. Went to LA Fitness and signed up for a year with a trainer. At that point I was still a Male and 5'11" but I weighed 204 and had 25%bf.
At this point Iím down to 18%b/f. and weigh in at 188.
Iím eating approx. 2400 calories a day at a 40/40/20 ratio.
I drink about 2 gallons of water a day on workout days and maybe 1.25 gal a day on the three days I donít workout. After each workout I have an ON Choc drink(23g protein).
Iím looking to gain strength, but not bulk up too much, mainly get a little bigger arms and thatís it. Just so they are a bit more proportional to my legs.
Working off a new routine from dbflgirl Iím doing the following:
Monday - Chest and Triceps
Incline press alt. with decline press
Flys or cable cross-over
Tuesday - Legs
Wednesday - Off
Thursday - Back and Biceps
Friday - Shoulders
That said, here are a few pictures and next up Iíll post my workouts from yesterday, today & some questions.
