Alrighty, time to start a log!
Basically I workout at the gym 5 times a week, I have a split program that I follow rather strictly. The split looks like this:

Monday: Triceps, Shoulders
Tuesday: Biceps, Forearms
Wednesday: Legs, Abs
Thursday: Chest
Friday: Back


I throw in a couple of sets of abs on some days, and on my back days I sometises do some shoulder work too.
The excersies I do are not always my favourite ones but my gym is very limited and they are the ones I can do.

At the moment I don't do any regular cardio, but when the weather shapes up I play lots of basketball and do both interval training and "long" distance running.

Anyway, I appreciate all constructive critisism, comments and so on!

Today was Triceps n' Soulders, I did three sets of abs too.
I was tired like hell, didn't sleep much at all but I ate a steady breakfast (seitan/soy-sandwhiches, yoghurt and soymilk) so the session was alright I guess.

Seated dumbell press
16 x 8
16 x 7,5 (the last one was good but I couldn't get my arms straight)
16 x 6

Narrow grip bench press This one is new for me, I can't do the regular bench cause my right shoulder can't take it. But this one feels really good.
57,5 x 8
57,5 x 8
57,5 x 8
57,5 x 7


Dumbell side lateral raises (standing)
10 x 10
10 x 10
10 x 9

3 sets of crunches

Overhead extensions (Cable, with a rope)
55 x 7 (Something happened here, not quite sure what, I always manage at least 8 reps on 55 kg, but however...)
50 x 12
50 x 10

Bent over side lateral raises (standing)
10 x 12
10 x 12
10 x 12

Front cable raises (with a rope)
23 x 12
23 x 10
23 x 10

Cable push-downs (I've done this for a long time but don't really know what to use for a handle so I'm trying different stuff, therefore I've lowered the weight)
64 x 10
64 x 9
64 x 9

As you might have noticed I like to train my shoulders quite light, I feel it's easier to get contact with them that way. Usually I go for 8 reps.

Peace out!

legs n abs
okay, the deal with my legs is that I started training them like a month ago, I used to make up all sorts of excuses not to train them before plus I had an injury in my right hamstring.
As I said before my gym is very limited, so we don't have a squat rack. for now that's okay, my legs are weak so I can lift the barbell over my head when I want to squat, hopefully I've found another gym when I can't do that anymore.

Calf press
132 x 20
132 x 20
132 x 19
132 x 17
132 x 16

3 sets of hanging leg raises

Squats
50 x 15
50 x 14
50 x 12

3 sets of machine crunches

Since I just started training my legs I'm totally finished after three sets of squats, but hopefully I'll soon be able to add more excersises.

Peace

I did it with dips and pec decs, both are new exercises for me. I did the dips kind of bent over so I would hit the chest even more.

Barbell rows(new)
60 x 8

68 x 8
68 x 7
64 x 8

Cable row (Sometimes I will switch this one with Lat pulldowns)
64 x 9
64 x 8
64 x 8

My back was totally finished after this but I still had some energy so..


Side lateral raises
10 x 10
10 x 10
10 x 8

Good session. peace out
