Hey all.

Hey everyone apparently I made an account here a while ago, but I've only just decided to get serious with some bodybuilding.
So my back story, I'm Jamie, a 22 year old male uni student from Ballarat, Australia. I've always been pretty weak, I used to do traditional bodybuilding stuff with a mate which gave me an alright base, however that was a while ago.
I just broke up with my girlfriend and I'm using that as motivation to get myself into a serious routine! :boxer:
I've recently turned vegan and am 80/10/10 (anybody else sick of bananas? :P ) My main goals are strength and aesthetics (aren't they everyones?) I never used to care about aesthetis, but I'd really love to get a solid chest and abs just because I have always been a bit tubby (not fat) and I have a slight pidgeon chest, which I'm hoping some muscle will cover up.
I will mainly be doing calisthenic work outs and sprints/running, just mainly because I don't really like gyms and I'm really jealous of the functional strength that people who do calisthenics have. I went around and scouted out all the local playgrounds and schools and found one where I can do pull ups thankfully.
At the moment I try to get around 3000 calories a day, mostly from fruit, however with this I'm going to assume I'll need to up it by at least 500.

I'll start a training log tomorrow to try and motivate me to stay the course and I'd really appreciate it if you could all give me tonnes of feedback/advice anything to encourage me to keep coming back, because I really feel that some form of accountability will be key for me! Also if by chance anyone on here is from Ballarat, message me!

Cheers, Jamie.

Hi Jamie, welcome back for the first time. Sounds like you're coming to the party with some motivation this time. Great to hear.
