Hey Amil!
I missed your start here because you did not post in the intro-section :oops:
Maybe you can post there so that everyone knows that we have another german and highly motivated member?

Your training and eating looks good! Go for it!

Butaway do you know Katrin from Frankfurt. She used to be a member here (K-oz) and maybe someday she will be back!

All the best for you!

Amil. You state in your opening post in your journal you want to gain weight and muscles. You need to start lifting mate, not just playing around with little dumbells and machines. Deadlifts, squats, bench, rows, overhead pressing and variations of those. Eat like you mean it, and reduce cardio. You can still gain a significant amount of muscle whilst doing cardio, but you have to up your calories, and lift hard.

hi jonathan, thanks for your clear words. it's the same, my bodybuilding friend is telling me. he made a working plan for shoulders and bizeps for me for training separate parts... so yesterday I worked for the first time with a barbell. with horrific light weight... see below for details.

gaining muscels and weight are not my ony aims, I also want to train holistic. I try to eat more to have more calories than I need.

No offence mate, but that is a terrible routine, especially if you wish to train for general health.

Drop the isolation exercises, like the side raises. For your shoulders for example for these lifts:

Push press with barbell
Seated dumbell shoulder press
Shrugs
Powercleans

Best exercises you can do - builds strength and mass.

thanks a lot for your feedback and advice!

I'll work more with barbells. but why dropping the isolated exercises? and should I also drop all machines, also the lat machine?

I have a friend who helps me with the exercises, but as I am still a beginner and we couldn't come together yet, I'm a little bit afraid starting powerlifting on my own. next saturday we'll go together to the gym.

don't you think I'm still far away from powercleans...?

Your eating sounds less this day! What about the tons of pasta, lentils, potatos, rice, grains, legumes and all these things, of course with litres of oil! Would you delete the Mr. Tom, it sounds more like cutting, not bulking. :wink:

hi kim! yes, you're right. the last days I didn't eat enough... wasn't much at home - studying, working, at sports and a lot of animal rights activism. I really should drop the AR-activism considering my health ;-)

next time I'm cooking noodles with sauce I'll make pictures and send them to you ;-)

where is the pasta pic? :wink:

But I thing you really add foods like legumes and lentils. Just eat lentils with oil and tomato puree or add chickpeas or beans to your pasta sauce. Use nuts or seed for your pasta and salads.
There are so many tricks to make a simple salad to an absolute calories bomb!

Animal Right Activism is good. Some special projects? On Saturday is "Tag der Tierschützer" and we have a information desk there and a anti meat campaign.
