Well I thought it would be a good idea to start keeping a weightlifting journal, and I figured it'd be a good idea to start making entries here for your viewing pleasure, and just in case I lose my journal. I'd like to get opinions on my body weight to strength ratio as I go along.
My goal really doesn't fit into any category. I just want to get strong, big, and stay ripped up to the point where I max my genetics.
I am 141 as of today, I weigh myself every Sunday. I'm consuming between 3,250kcal and 4,000 kcal, depending on if my sister has any vegan food I can steal. Despite eating 4,000 kcal for 2 or 3 days out of the week, I don't get fat, which is weird. I drink about 1 or 1 1/2 gallons of water a day, and I've been lifting for 4 years.
So anyway before every day I do 15-20 minutes of cardio, usually walking, flat or on incline, but 3x a week I run, including one on my off day which is 30 min long instead of 20. I weightlift 5x a week, chest, arms, off, shoulders, legs, back, off. I will rotate days around occasionally and switch between 3x8, 4x8, 3x5, 4x5, and 3x10s.
8-31-11 - Shoulders
Was an ok day today. I failed to move hardly any on my upright row which kinda bums me out. And I'm still 10lbs behind my body weight. Trying very hard to catch up to it. Other than the EZ upright row and failing on smith presses I felt I made good progress today. There's always next week.
Smith Shoulder Press: 130lbs x7x6x5 <-Sucks
EZ Upright Row: 125lbs x7x6x6
EZ Posterior Row: 130lbs xx8x8x8 Nailed it so hard, felt awesome.
DB Shoulder Press: 90lbs x8x8x7
DB Lateral Raise: 80lbs x8x8x8
DB Reverse Flies: 70lbs x8x8x8
DB Shrugs:170lbs 8x7x8 My hands were freaking killing me at this point, had trouble holding the two 85s.
EZ Front Raises: 60lbs x8x8x8 These were fun, I like to do something fun at the end of my routines sometimes.
Tomorrow is legs. ^_^
Live cautiously to make it safely to death
