    Flyin' Ryan: A New Beginning

    Well hello.

    Many things have changed since I've last posted on these great forums...

    - I found a new job... I am an Assistant General Mananger at a restaurant called Bagger Dave's.
    - I started dating this girl.
    - I herniated a disc in my back. That disc turned into a very painful bulging disc.
    - I started smoking weed and drinking on a regular basis.
    - I underwent physical therapy 3x a week for 6 months to avoid surgery. It was successful.
    - I cleaned up my bad habits for the most part and slowly got back into the gym.
    - That girl I mentioned earlier cheated on me with someone she works with.
    - I developed a 'FTW attitude' and put my lifting at the top of my list of priorities.
    - I've since moved on and found a new lady friend. Major upgrade in every aspect.

    That, basically, is my last 18 months in a nutshell.

    As far as lifting goes, my 7 month hiatus took a major toll on my strength.
    My body composition didn't take that big of a hit, but I'm not at the spot I once was.
    Will upload current pics soon.

    Stats
    Height: 5'6
    Weight: 176

    As far as my lifts go...

    5 Rep Max

    Bench: 210 (previously 255)
    Deadlift: 310 (previously 405)
    Squat: 255 (previously 310)
    Military: 130 (previously 175)

    My routine has been shaky for the past few months, but my plan is to run a 4 or 5 days split.
    My goal is to squat 3x a week whilst deadlifting and benching 2x a week and throwing accessory lifts in as needed.
    I'm not using any supps out of the ordinary... just your typical creatine, multi, fish oil, and DAA.
    I don't use pre-workouts or intra-workouts, and I don't do protein powder.

    My plan for this log is to get me back on track with my diet more so than anything.
    I've never had an issue staying motivated to work out and work out hard...

    I haven't decided if I'm going to be strict with counting calories or if I'm going to take a more relaxed approach.
    I do, however, want to clean up my diet and achieve better body composition and overall better health.

    Oh yeah, pics of foods will be included.

    Hope you guys follow me on yet another journey to Swole City.

    Get big.

    Couple photos from the past couple days...





    Yes the pictures are in different lighting and are a few days apart, but essentially this is where I'm re-starting from.
    Not a terrible place to start, but not a great one either.
    I'm hoping to acquire more size first, then cut it back down a little down the road.

    Thanks gents.
    Should be a fun ride.

    I'm getting back in the gym today after a 2-day hiatus, as long as it's open.
    They've been shut down since Sunday evening due to this awesome weather.

    First question of the log:

    Does anybody have a lifting routine they would suggest for me to use?
    I've had some success running the 4-5 day split where my main focus is deadlifting, squatting, and benching... but I'm always open to suggestions for new routines.

    Previously I've done Lyle McDonald's Upper/Lower split and Madcow 5x5s.

    I ran layne nortons phat for 4 months good program made gains but the volume just got too much for me, started to get injured too often.

    ive been running Lyle's for 3 weeks now so far so good. I know you have done it before but it doesn’t mean you can’t start it again if you aren’t going to get bored.

    or Jim wendlers 531 is pretty popular.

    First time I've squatted in a couple weeks. Definitely feeling it this morning.
    Did a bit of work with shoulders and biceps as well.
    Nothing really more to say about this session.

    ---

    After reading over each of the routines a few of you suggested for me, I think I'm going to start running 5/3/1 today.
    I like the fact it's pretty to the point, and it makes the most sense for me IMO.
    I found a pretty solid spreadsheet to use when figuring out my weights and reps and things like that, so I scored pretty nicely.

    Upgraded from "curls for the girls" to "rows for the hoes".

    I figure since I did squats yesterday, it was my perfect chance to start officially start 5/3/1 with bench today.
    I like it so far... I will admit, I was pretty sore/pumped when I was done with my last set of flies.
    This routine seems pretty promising after Day 1.

    I also started supplementing with D-Aspartic Acid today.
    I've used it before and it seemed to give me a bit of an extra kick in the pants once it got into my system.
    Still rolling without a pre-WO, and I don't think that's going to change.
    But, as always, I love to hear suggestions for great supplements that you guys have tried and had good success with.

    Food pics should come within the next 24 hours.
    As of now, I don't have a camera so they'll be taken with my crappy camera phone.
    I should be upgrading to an iPhone 5s within the next month or so, so hopefully the shiiitty pics will be very temporary.

    A Few Food Pics


    Chicken, wild rice, brown rice, broccoli, carrots, cheddar cheese, and Santa Fe sauce


    Chicken, sausage, broccoli, red onion, FF mozzarella cheese, and white con queso dip.


    Chicken, steak, cheddar, chive/onion cream cheese, and red onion wrapped in lavash.

    ---

    Told you the pics were pretty rough. :P
    I'm working on getting a new camera and/or phone ASAFP.

    Two of my pics were corrupt when I sent them to my email, too.
    One was a "Tijuana Salad", which is one of the few things I'll eat at work if I'm trying to eat 'healthier'.

    The other was a Panera coffee... hazelnut with skim milk and splenda.
    I drink 1-2 of these every day. Now that I'm back at Panera very part time (for a little extra... dough...) I get it fo' free.

    Couple other notables that I've purchased recently, but have not yet consumed are:

    - Ben and Jerry's Vanilla Caramel Fudge
    - Ben and Jerry's Mississippi Mud Pie
    - Kellogg Krave: Smores
    - Sugar Cookie Pop Tarts
    - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter

    As some of you probably remember, I am a Ben and Jerry's fanatic.
    I've had every single flavor at least once, most more than that.
    This includes the newer flavors like Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Cotton Candy, Pina Colada, Peanut Butter Jam Session, Rockin' Blondie, Scotchy Scotch Scotch, etc etc.
    Believe it or not, however, I've not tried either of the two flavors sitting in the freezer.

    That being said, I cut back on the sweets a pretty good deal.
    While I was injured, I kind of let myself go on my diet for a bit and got my fill of sweets and things of that sort.
    I didn't feel as good as when I eat vitamin-rich foods... but I think that goes without saying.

    Wont kill you. My lady loves the shiit out of Starbucks. I don't mind it, I just think Panera's has a better taste.

    As for your accessory question, I guess maybe I'm not understanding the routine 100%

    From everything I've read that makes sense to me, I'm supposed to do 6 sets of whichever compound lift I'm doing, followed by 2 additional lifts at 5 sets per lift, followed by a few sets of abs. Therefore, if this is accurate, my accessory lifts for bench day were DB Iso Inclines and DB Flies... for deadlift day I will do Seated Cable Rows, Lat Pull, and a few sets of one-arm DB rows... for military press day, I'll do Front Raises and Side Raises, and possibly a few sets of upright rows/bb shrugs to touch on my traps.

    I would like to apologize for the lack of FOOD PORN that made me a semi-superstar around these parts.
    I'm working on getting a new camera so I can re-capture my glory.
    The phone isn't cutting it anymore... none of the pictures I take end up saving properly.
    They're all discolored and 'fuzzy', like static on a television set. Very strange.
    It might have to wait a little bit though... I just threw over $1000 into my car. Fun, I know.

    No cardio today as I ran out of time before work.

    Feeling pretty good.
    I will say I am embarrassed to admit that benching the 205 for 5 reps was harder than I thought it would be.
    I have fallen off so bad on my strength since getting hurt at the beginning of last year... makes me so sad.

    Right on. Pneumonia is no joke. Hope everything is okay now.

    Obviously I know it will come back in due time, it's just a bit frustrating right now when I struggle with that weight now... and I used to rep it out for 12-13 reps.
