There's a few on here who can help in the figure department.

Myself....I'm geared towards strongman training/powerlifting but I can help if it's bodybuilding...Don't confuse figure/bodybuilding. Def a difference.

My advice would be to keep it simple if you're a new starter :)

Well, all in all I would like to get "bigger".

Does anyone know where I could find articles on what exactly they look for for each type of competition. Right now the only thing I know is symmetry....

All day I was planning on doing legs, until I squatted in my classroom after school and still felt pain. So, just to play it safe, I switched it up.

Spinning class (for the first time ever) 30min. How do people do this for an hour!?!?!?!?
---
Crunches: 100
---
Rt Oblique (Elbow meets knee): 100
---
Lt Oblique: 100
---
Stretching: 30min
---
Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 15x15, 4/10x4, 8

Talked to my friend about doing figure. She has me convinced to contact a guy to see if he "deals with vegans". Might be asking for recommendations.

Well it looks like you won't have to worry about losing any fat!

As far at nutrition goes, if you are training for a figure competition, then you will have to measure your calorie intake each day, and the protein/carbs/fat breakdown as well. Then, when you have a few days recorded of eating like you normally would, you can establish a baseline for your calorie needs. At that point, just add 200-300 calories to that baseline, lift heavy weights, make sure you are getting enough protein, and wait for the results! 8)

Ha, I would definitely need to cut, but everyone does.

I talked to a trainer yesterday (via e-mail) and he said that after a lean gain phase that it's possible to compete in the fall. So, I'm thinking next year.

In the mean time, I'm looking at protein powders and such. Any recommendations on best tasting "Vega Sport" Pre-Workout, Electrolyte, Protein and Recovery? I'll assume my heart won't explode from using these.... ;-)

Okay, so here's Thursday. I have been sick since Tuesday of last week, and it REALLY hit me on Friday. I was going to work out anyway (out of town) with an actual lifting partner (!)... but someone left her gym shoes and shorts in a "pile of stuff to remember" at home.... had shirts and whatnot... but I figured that might be an issue. I figured that was some sort of sign that I needed to sleep some of this off. Feeling slightly better today, good sign.

Okay, Thursday 3/22/12 No supersets today.

Incline DB Press: 15x15, 20x10, 15x10, 10 (couldn't lift the 20's the second time :-/)
Incline DB Fly: 10x12, 12, 12x8
DB Bench: 15x12, 10, 8
Seated Tri Press: 15x8, 10, 10 (got interrupted, so regained some strength)
BB Bench: 18x15, 24x15, 30x8
BB Skullcrush: 15x12, 12, 12
Dip (on Bench w/feet on box, almost same height): 7, 6, 6, 8
Cable Pushdown w/Rope: 30x8, 7, 6, 6
BB Curl: 18x15, 24x7, 6
Alt Hammer Curl: 10x15, 12x12, 15x4/12x4
Zottman Curl: 12x8, 4/10x6, 10x10
Back Extensions (I know this is random, but I haven't been able to do legs): BodyX20, 10lbx15, 15

My right bicep is SO MUCH weaker than my left. Frustrating.

Didn't really sleep last night.
My shin had a sudden meeting with a co-worker's trailer hitch (that sticks out over a foot past his bumper). I was walking fast enough that I have a line and a bump on my right shin... and my left elbow is swollen.
Hacking up random things.

What to do?
Go to spinning again.
It was perfect.

Spin class: 30min
Plie Squat w/Kettlebell: 35x15, 40x15, 45x15, 50x15
Seated Leg Curl: 100x15, 115x10, 8, 8
Seated Leg Ext: 100x15, 115x12, 10, 8
Dumbbell Straight Leg Deadlift (this really hurt my hands/wrists): 35x15, 40x12, 12
Seated Leg Press: 150x12, 165x8, 8, 8
Back Extensions w/10lb plate: 15, 12, 12, 12
Adductor: 90x15, 95x8, 90x15
Abductor: 105x15, 15, 15

Was really tired. Stopped at my mom's house and ate a bag of edamame (18g protein).... and a bag of peas (20g)... after almost throwing up from one sip of plain protein powder. I can usually stomach anything, but holy lord, that just wasn't happening. Live and learn.

I'm getting tired of looking at those picture. A motivator, if nothing else.

Had my body fat tested today. I'm thinking it's reading low for what it actually is. From the look on my face the guy at the gym got defensive and was all "Remember, it's an estimate........"
