    BigNorg's journey from 175 to 210!

    I've finally decided it time to buckle down. After a few weeks of rest (back injury) I've decided it times to "restart" my bulk. I'm working with DL, if any of you know who he is, and Im trying to have my first competition this summer. Hopefully all goes well.

    Stats:

    Weight: 175 lbs
    Height: 5"7'
    BF%: Somewhere around 13% maybe? Not too sure.
    Waist: 30in
    Arms: 16in were 16 1/2
    Legs: 23in (yea I know... :/ )
    Calves: 15 1/2in
    Forearms: 14in
    Chest: Unknown
    Kneck: Nearly 15in


    Training Background:

    I started 5 years ago, I was a chubby kid and realized my life style needed a change. Alright maybe I was a little bit more than chubby :P I spent many hours a week in the highschool gym (I snuck in, I was in 8th grade at the time) while my friends were out having fun. In the past two years I've gotten extremly serious, my diets changed, strict work out plan, multivitamins, the whole deal. I'm hopeing I'll be able to compete in the next 10 months, we'll see.



    The Work Out!:

    MON - CHEST, SHOULDERS, TRICEPS

    BB Incline press – 3-4 warm-up sets, 1 work set where you struggle to get 5-6 reps = if u get over 6 reps go up by 5 lbs next workout. If you can get 6 reps at new weight, go up by 5 lbs. Don’t go up unless you got 6 reps the last workout.
    DB Flat fly – 2-3 warm-ups, then 1 work set of 6-8 reps. Try to get maximum stretch and do it slow. If you get over 8 reps go up by 2.5 to 5lbs next workout. If you can’t get 8 reps, that’s good – go up in reps each workout until you can get over 8 reps at the new weight. Alternate this exercise each week with Incline DB fly’s so you hit upper chest from two positions.
    DB Cross bench pullovers – lie on bench with shoulders resting just off bench, and feet spread wide for balance, dip your butt so it’s towards ground. Have a friend hand you a DB and with arms outstretched, holding arms straight and DB with both hands, raise DB until its over chest, then lower DB to ground but don’t touch ground. Get full stretch of upper pecs and upper lats (This will tie them together). Slowly raise DB until directly over chest, and then slowly lower DB to almost touch ground. Same as before 1-2 warm-ups, and one working set of 6-8 reps. Only go up in weight when you get over 8 reps.
    Cable crossovers – 1-2 sets for pec stretching. Stand with one upper cable in each hand and pull across chest and down and hold with hands crossed for 3 sec, then hands back up to stretch pecs, and then repeat. Do 6-8 reps.
    You may substitute pec-dec machine for cable crossovers, if your gym has a pec-dec machine.

    DELTS

    Military press - 2 warm-ups, 1 work set like with incline bench getting your last set in the 6-8 range.
    Lateral fly – 10-12 working sets in 10-12 range. Perform as a drop set (machine laterals are good for drop sets) starting as high as you can and still get 8-10 reps. Next week go up 5-10 lbs on first set but don’t go up the next week unless you can get 10 reps on first set. Once in a while you can go up the ladder in weights using DB’s.
    Rear delt machine – 1 warm-up, 1 work set – Do this one week but next week do this exercise.
    Seated row rear delt exercise – Sit in seated row machine, and using a rope through the hook, pull each end of rope until your elbows are up and out to sides and your hands are by your cheeks on your face. You will feel this in your rear delts and the next day. Do 2warmup, one working set.
    Wide grip BB upright rows – Grab the bb as far out as you can and slowly raise up along your body until the bb is over your chest and at lower neck level. Then slowly lower weight until arms are fully stretched. Slowly raise bb up your body until at neck level, then slowly lower and repeat. One set should destroy your rear delts if you did one of the other two exercises first.

    TRIS

    Close grip Bench – 1-2 warmups, 1 working set in 6-8 range.
    Overhead DB extensions – 1 warm-up, 1 working set in 6-8 range. Only go up in weight when you can get over 8 reps.
    Tricep pushdowns - 1 warm-up, 1 work set

    WED - QUADS, HAMS, CALVES

    Squats –3-4 warm-ups starting with 15-20 reps and work down in reps until you can get 1 work set of 5-6 reps. Higher reps, not higher weights, develop bigger quads. Every 4th leg workout try to get 20 reps of a weight you can do 10 reps of.
    Leg press – 2-3 working sets of 15-20 reps. Stop at a weight you can’t get 15 reps of and get it the next workout, then go up in weight. On leg press if you keep your toes just over the edge of the platform, the leg press will work your hams as well as quads.
    Hack squats – one warm-up, one working set of 8-12 reps. Alternate every other week with Smith front squats, one warm-up, one working set of 8-12 reps.
    Leg extension - warmup, one work set
    Leg curl - warm-up, work set
    Stiff leg deadlift - work set
    Standing calf raise - work set

    FRI - ABS, BACK, BIS

    Lat pull down – 2-3 warm-ups, one work set in 6-8 range. Alternate wide grip pulldown bar and V-grip handle every other week to get your upper lats.
    Deadlift – 3 warm-ups, one work set using higher reps on first sets and lower on last.
    BB Bent-over rows – (Use the curl grip with palms face up and elbows close into sides) 2 warm-ups of 8-10 reps, then one work set of 6-8 reps.
    BB shrugs in power rack or using smith machine – 135x12 reps standing behind bar, then rest, then 135x12 reps standing in front of bar. Then rest, then 225 x 10-12 reps standing behind bar, then standing in front. Then 315 x 8-10 reps standing in front, then behind bar. Try to get up to 405, then 495. Go up in plates on this exercise each week or each month.

    Standing BB curls – 3 warm-up of 8-12 reps, one work set of 6-8 reps.
    Hammer curls standing – one warm-up, one work set
    Preacher curl – one work set (Machine preachers are good for this.)


    The Diet!:

    Two shakes a day as follows:

    3 scoops protein
    2 tablespoons peanut butter
    2 tablespoons olive oil or flax seed oil
    3 glasses of skim milk


    One shake at night

    3 scoops protein
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 Cups milk


    Two meals of
    One can tuna fish with brown rice

    Two meals of
    One chicken breast with brown rice

    *Note* Some days I might cut out the brown rice out of my meals and replace oats in my shake. Mainly because I might be too lazy to spend 45 minutes to cook up the rice.



    Supplements:

    ON DoubleChocolate Whey
    Higher Power Mono(may switch over to Clout)
    Animal Pak Multi
    May add glutamine (<-give me feed back on this one)
    Olive Oil
    Fish Oil


    Pictures:(poor quality)
    Last picture is my ongoing transformation.

    Why do you do warmup sets on every exercize?
    Keep it simple. Allways Think positive. It workes really well. You'd be surprised how easy it is when you don't over analyze.

    A good question. After some months of researching I've come up with an idea that with many warm up sets it will optimize the firing of neuropath ways, and thus your "work" sets should reach its most beneficial peak. It's only a theory though, with some good backing none-the-less, thought I might try the idea out.

    Conclusion:

    Felt rather weak today. I know thats normal after a period of rest but never-the-less it has depressed me a tad. Hopeing to get my numbers to where they were within the next two weeks. My old spotter decided to change gyms so I had a new spot. He is less experienced and set me back a little. I have come to the conclusion that I think I like working out by myself the most. Ive had 250 grams of protien so far and I still have room/time for at least another shake. Diet seems solid, but then again thats never really been that big of a problem. Tomorrow I'll be cooking my lunch meals for the week.

One more week and they'll both be at 100% for sure. Diets looking great. Chest felt sore for past two days but I love that feeling. Protien intake is still at around 350 grams, maybe even 400 grams on some days. Scale is steadily increasing.

    25/20 (Each arm) *Note: This is the first time I have ever worked my forearms out. I naturally have big forearms which almost everyone in my school points out. Just thought, "eh... what the hell, lets try and get them 15 - 16 inch during this bulk."*


    Conclusion:

    Shocked the legs today, was bittersweet. Felt good in the sense to finally start working them out again, but then again it was dissapointing to see my numbers not as high as usual. Instead of taking my Higher Power Mono today I took GroMax HG, a free supplement I recieved in the mail. The taste was alright, a tad bitter, was bareable but I deffinately have had better. Taste = 6.5/10. The mix was absolutely herendous, huge clumps at the bottom, no matter how much I mixed it wouldn't dissolve. Mixability = 3/10, that may even be generous. As for effects I felt a little bit of energy, nothing spectacular at all. Anywho, this is the point where I would like to enter my rant. During lunch today I went with three other friends to the pizzeria down the block from my school. Well I ate my grilled chicken a little bit earlier and felt the urge for some more protien. Nowwwwwww, on the damn "Lunch Special" menu there is "Grilled Chicken on a roll, fries, and drink for $5.00", alright I thought... sick deal. So I go to the cashier, can I just get a chicken cutlet(grilled) with a bottle of poland spring, "Sure, it comes out to $6.43" Me:"..........uhhhh huhhhhhhhhh" I then argued with them, pointing out that their lunch special which came with a fountain drink, a roll and fries was $1.43 cheaper than what I was asking for. Then wouldn't give in, they said something about the fountain drink being cheaper than the poland spring.... I finally got them to give me the grilled chicken and bottled water for $5.00 but I doubt I'll be going back there any time soon. On a lightttterrrr note, I'd like to point something out that I see at the gym that I love, which I did infact experience today. As I was walking down the stairs to go to the locker room(the weight room is upstairs) I passed a guy who must be at least 80, and he's going up the stairs 3 seconds per step while hanging onto the railing for dear life. I see this guy at the gym almost everyday. Guy has a lot of heart, struggles just to get to the gym but doesn't give up. He gets into the weight room everyday and puts up some respectable numbers, even for someone who's 40 years younger than him. He's one of the few guys at my gym who I admirer.

    Oct. 22nd 2005

    Off Day

    Thought I might start including my diet in this log.

    Breakfeast:(Meal One)

    * 6 Whole eggs
    * 3 Strips of bacon
    * Glass of apple juice with HP Creatine

    Meal Two:

    3 Scoops Whey
    2 Tbls Peanut Butter
    2 Cups Skim Milk

    Lunch:(Meal Three, Cheat Meal)

    2 Double Cheeseburgers
    Rasberry Icetea

    Meal Four:

    3 Scoops Whey
    2 Tbls Peanut Butter
    2 Cups Skim Milk

    Dinner:(Meal five)

    1/2 lb lean pork meat
    Small veggie salad
    1 Cup brown rice

    Meal Six:

    3 Scoops Whey
    2 Tbls Peanut Butter
    2 Cups Skim Milk



    Conclusion:

    Diet was alright today, I went out with my gf for the day so at times it was difficult to stick to what I would like to, however I was able to compromise fairly well. Anyways, tomorrow will be the tough day seeing as I have to go to a family birthday party... a lot of food but not a lot of 'clean' foods. What should I do guys?! Should I give into the temptation and just eat, or not eat? I mean I am bulking so I guess it might be wise to eat, I'll try and see if they have any skinless chicken or perhaps fish or lean meats.

    I'll be back tomorrow guys,

    Looking good there mate, real good. You seem to have everything on the go, so kudos on that.

    As for your party, why not have a clean meal before you go, and just "nibble" while you're there? Just have maybe one or two things to eat if you really need to but in the knowledge you don't have to worry too much about it since you've already eaten. Just a thought, it's normally what I do.

    Conclusion:

    Been feeling fairly strong. Today went well. Decided to try out Shocker Nutrition's Thermo Lean today just to see about the hype. Seems like a great product, I can' rememeber when I sweet so much before. I don't know if it's worth the $90.00 bucks, but of course I shouldn't judge when I only had a one day sample. Other than that there was a woman in her late 30s at the gym today who kept stareing at me, followed me almost everytime I changed my excersies. Granted she was good looking but I hate when my focus isn't directly on my lifting. My diet is amazing. I've changed it up a little bit. In the morning I have my usually shake, 3 scoops whey, pb, EFA, and skim milk. Then for breakfeast(at school in cafeteria, I get to school early) I have 3 boiled eggs, and a home made protien bar(rolled oats, whey, pb, milk). Between lunch and breakfeast I have another homemade protien bar. Lunch I have tunafish, water, rice. Between lunch and the time I get home I have another homemade protien bar. When I get home I generally have a protien shake and my creatine and hit the gym. After the gym its another shake. Dinner its usually grilled chicken and brown rice, sometimes a potatoe. And before bed I sometimes have another shake. Some people may say I need more "real" food in my diet, and truthfully that may be true but being a highschool senior with a lot of college work I have to do, times have become hectic. Admittingly it is much more easier to make a shake and have that instead. However I take EFAs and a multi and I feel great throughout the day so until I feel as though I am not healthy I will not be changing my diet. PLEASEEEE feel free to critique my routine and exspecially my diet, critisim is greatly appreciated.

    A quick little update before I forget. I saw my wrestlign coach today at home comming. He asked me to wrestle. He said they have us ranked 2nd in the counties and he believes we could have a shot at winning all of the counties and then get ranked in state. He stressed "please" twice. Hes a great guy and a greatttttt coach. The man has some serious heart and is dedicated like no one else. He works Flatbush Aveneue in Brooklyn as a Cop during NIGHTS, for those of you not from NY... its nottt a great neighborhood. Then after work he sleeps for like 5 hours and comes in the coach us. I mean on one side I want to do it, the brotherhood in the sport is incredible and there is no feeling like it. On the other hand it will disrupt my bulk and it is incredibley tiresome. The man puts us through 3 - 4 hours of practice a day, 6 - 7 days a week. I could use some input here, what do you guys think I should do? :-/ Another thing is I also want to concentrate on my snowboarding. I may have a possibility for sponsorship and with wrestling that goes out the window.

    Hey there BigNorwegian.

    Your workouts are looking real good, so keep it up mate.

    As for what your coach said, if you really don't want to do it, don't. I know he's a nice guy and all, but you've already said your life is hectic...can you imagine another 3-4 hours 6-7 days a week when you're busy and have hardly any time now?

    I'd keep with the bulking and go with the snowboarding myself, if that is indeed what you want to do, and it sounds like it. Obviously the choice is down to you, but just thought I'd mention this - you'd probably have said "yes" straight-off if that's what you really wanted.

    Good luck, whatever you choose.
    Viking to the core.

    Fark yew.

    Heh, thanks man. When I was younger I neglected my legs, I'm trying to catch them back up. I've always had very defined calves though, mainly because I did a lot of sports and snowboard a lot. My chest is a little bit above average but thats it, I'm looking to hopefuly break a max of 300 once my bulk is over on bp. My best bench was 295 but that was before I hurt my back. I put up a lot of decent numbers with my small size (only 5"6' - 5"7'), but they're no where near where I would like them to be. Thanks for the feed back though, greatly appreciated. Make me happy at least someone takes the time to keep updated on my progress :P Keeps my motivated as well. Well I'm off to the gym to do chest, tris and delts. And for all of you who actually keep updated on this journal, my shoulds are feeling much better. Just still a little sore from football. Takleing without pads is fun :P

    Edit: Before I forget, just to let all you guys and girls know I choose not to wrestle this year to focus on my bulk and snowboard season. I hate to admit it, practices didn't even start yet and I already miss the brotherhood of the team I wish wrestling was in the spring, I would have busted my ass so hard to make counties this year :-/ My team will do alright though, they predicted to be ranked 2nd in my whole county, but I'm sure they'll take first. We have four coaches now for a team of 30, all of which were county/state wrestlers and we even had state champions move to our town just to wrestle for us. I'm sure they'll do great!

    Day 11

    Back Bis:

    Lat Pull Down:

    10/130
    8/150
    8/170
    8/200
    4/220 *Note: Felt good all the way through, threw in a last set just to get a feel for 220, I think I'll be bale to step the weight up to 210 next week.

    Deadlifts:

    10/135
    10/135
    8/225
    8/275 *Note: Feeling a lot stronger on deadlifts, I think I could have busted out another two reps but my grip was slipping. I do all of my deads raw, no belt, no straps, no powder. I don't know if this is a good idea when getting to the higher weights, though I do maintain very good form throughout every set. Some input on this would be appreciated. Maybe belt/straps once I hit 315 for sets?*

    BB Bent Over Rows(Smith Machine):

    10/90
    10/110
    8/160 *Note: Felt very strong strong.*

    BB Shrugs(On some weird machine I dont know whats called, not smith:

    12/90
    10/180
    10/270
    8/370

    BB Curls(Machine):

    10/60
    10/70
    10/80
    6/100

    DB Hammer Curls:

    12/25
    8/30
    6/50

    Standing Curls:

    10/60 (Ez Bar)
    8/60 (Ez Bar)
    8/60 (Straight Bar)


    Conclusion:

    Feeling good, I think my back is getting much thicker, however I can see my lats are a little uneven. Hopefully they'll even out in time. I'm thinking I may need to add in another bicept excersise, suggestions or thoughts on this would be much appreciated. Please give me some feedback on my deadlift dilema, I don't know if I should start using straps/powder/belt once I hit the higher weights, is it worth it or not? I'm steadily gaining weight, I think I'll be a solid 180 before Thanksgiving. Then hopefully 185 - 190 by Christmas. Seems like I'm right on schedule.

    Come on mate, keep this up and you'll be well away!

    I may not comment a lot, but I still read it...

    Sad to hear about the wrestling team, but it's probably for the best. How do you think your diet is going?

    10/270 *Note: My first three sets are warm ups where I go as far as I physically can, nearly 1 inch away from the floor. Squats felt relatively good, could have done more reps I believe, but no spot today.

    Leg Press:

    12/360
    12/450
    10/450
    12/360 *Note: I felt much stronger on this than last week, even though I decreased my rep range, I was able to do much more weight than last week.*

    Hack Squats(Smith Machine):

    20/90
    20/180
    15/270
    8/350 *Note: Felt strong, however not only did I feel my legs being worked this week but again, as like last week, I felt my lower back working as well. I also felt my uppder back working slightly during higher weights. Anyone else feel their lower back and/or upper back working when doing hack squats?*

    Leg Extensions:

    20/45
    20/90
    16/135
    16/135 *Note: No spotter today, so I decided to do my last set with 135 rather than 180.*

    Leg Curl:

    20/35 (per leg)
    20/35 (per leg)
    18/50 (per leg)
    20/65 (per leg) *Note: Felt strong.*

    Standing Calf Raise: (snowboarding seasons comming along, need to get them calves in shape! :P )

    25/355
    20/375
    12/395

    Conclusion:

    Feeling good, lookg bigger in the mirror though its evident I am gaining some fat in the process. Diets looking alright, I need to go shopping soon to get more food. On a side note, I was takign a shower today in the gym, and i noticed a towel hanging on the door, two showers down from me. I was like hmmm... thats a small towel, then I see its pink... then I see in big yellow letters "BARBIE", I chuckled. I got changed and then I saw the guy come out of the shower with the towel wrapped around himself. The guy was like 6"3' 250lbs and in good shape, the towel didnt fit around him and he had to hold it on the side and it came down like 2 feet and thats it, it was a funny sight : )

    Signing off for today guys, hope you enjoy this log.
