Starting my own journal

#1 Postby bobbycore » Wed May 18, 2005 4:00 pm

Goal: 190lbs in body weight
Current: 170lbs

I am not putting up a ton on weight because I am not very strong but will change eventually.

I recently changed my diet to a very clean 4000-4250 calories.

my routine is basically all compound movements at this time. I have thrown in little "extras" to hit different parts of each muscle group. Remember the weights and reps are estimated off a good lift day.

Looks like a nice Bodybuilding routine Bobby. Good luck on the weight gain, excellent that you are getting that many clean calories.

Best of luck man. I'm going to start my own training journal soon as well.

I just finished working 10-11 hours, so I think it might be time for me to sleep. Tomorrow will be a long day, helping Khan move. Khan is the person who does the website design for this website. He's moving up to Astoria soon.

Anyway, best of luck with your training program, I'll add feedback later, I'm too sleepy right now.

Later man
