View Full Version : My Journal

my current diet consists of:

4000 calories
400g of carbs
300g of protein
133g of fat
8 liters of water

basic 40-30-30 breakdown.


weighted pull ups-4x4-8
bent over row-3x6-8
barbell curl-3x4-6
static hold-1x30 secs

incline DB press-2x4-6
superset: incline DB flyes-2x4-8
flat DB press-2x4-6
superset: flat DB flyes-2x4-8
side raise-2x4-8
DB shoulder press-2x4-6
lying tricep press-3x4-6

superset: leg ext-3x8-10
leg curl-3x4-6
calf raise-2x6-8
jacknife pushups-2x4-12


just started creatine today, using my own dosing method.

week 1: load-10g 2x a day.
week 2 and any time after that: 5g post workout.

ALA: using it for its insulin mimicing effects mainly...really seems to help when drinking a 750 calorie shake.

multivitamin: make sure there are no vitamin deficiencies in my diet, especially since i puke at the site of vegetable and fruit is not included due to the sugar content.

calcium: no dairy, need calcium.

ProLab N-Large2: just calories, bulking cleanly with no appetite isn't very easy, N-Large 2x a day gives me 1240 easily consumed calories.


well, i'm currently 5'9" 142lbs, AKA a skinny mofo. this is my second time bulking, bulked for 5.5 months last time and gained a good 35lbs...25LBM, 10 fat. started BBing at 115lbs. i want to be at least 160, hopefully 170 by June, regardless of bodyfat %...i found cutting to be very easy, dropped 5% bodyfat in 6 weeks. no muscle lost.

Strength Goals:

none really set. i just strive to add a rep, or some weight every workout. but, i do want the 60lb DB's for incline DB press :)


not much to say today, kinda my cheat day. this journal will be updted daily if time permits, and time usually does permit :)

01-21-2001, 08:30 PM
Update, 1/21:

Diet: so far, perfect. one more meal to eat, already in the fridge ready to eat. 6 liters of water so far.


sucked!!!! today was leg day.during my final warm up set of squats, after a complete warm up and some stretching, my hams cramped up. couldn't even squat with no weight this hurt so much. dunno what the hell happened but it sucked. Chest/Back tomorrow. split has changed...workouts still the same though except for delts. added rear delt training, 2 sets of 6-8 reps of rear delt raises.

new split:


same as Hulk's split, need a change.

Supps: perfect, all supps on time.

01-22-2001, 10:36 PM


chest and back. what a hard workout...felt sick on my first couple of sets for chest, not sure why. up a rep on DB presses, and 2 reps on flyes. back training needs to change. bent rows are not working...the only results i get from them is a sore lower back and pumped biceps. started using lifting straps for the first time today...dramatically increased my intensity...only need 6 sets to kill my back instead of the usualy 9. direct forearm work will be added. added 1 rep to my pull ups, 10lbs to my row, and 10lbs to my dead...although i dropped a rep with the 10lb increase on deads. overall - good workout.


meals on time, well, meal 3 was a little late, about 30 mins...but other than that, perfect. 2 gallons of water completed.


all supps on time.


set a few strength goals for 12 weeks...

250lb deadlift for 6 reps.
225lb squat for 6 reps
60lbs DB press for 6 reps


i didn't add these before but i have decided i should.

weight: 142lbs
height: 5'9"
bodyfat %: 12.2%

no training tomorrow.

01-23-2001, 06:41 PM


all meals on time, eating meal 6 now. had to substitue a 6oz chicken breast for 2 scoops of whey on meal 3, but other than that - perfect.

got 6.5 liters of water done so far, 8 will be complete by the end of the day.


all supps on time.


off day. legs tomorrow.

here i go again changing my split...

monday-back/rear delts
saturday and sunday-off

this split will start next week, if i don't change it by then :)


forgot all about this. just read Anthony's journal and that reminded me. last night - 7 hours. feel very good today though. 3:00am - 10:00am. thats how i like to sleep, but unfortunately school interfers with that :)

school doesn't start untill 12:00pm tomorrow so i'm good.


if you have any comments please post them. something you think i'm doing wrong, questions, whatever.

01-23-2001, 10:07 PM
ok, just an update to todays update :)

now that the day is over i got 10 liters of water, and 4650 calories.

i'm also feeling a little sick today...not sure why.

just thought i would add that.

Time + Patience
01-25-2001, 07:08 PM
It sounds like you are doing a good job, eattin all your meals, that's my biggest problem, not eatting all of my meals a day. When I can start eatting all 6 meals, and start Squatting and Deadlifing regularly after my ankle heals, then I will be gettin huge, guaranteed.

01-26-2001, 10:01 PM
Update: wedsday


got all 4000 cals down...2 gallons of water, all supps on time.


trained legs. great workout. squats up 10lbs, SLDL up 20lbs, leg curl up 10lbs. abs are hurtin.


got 13 hours.

Update: Thrusday


diet was off a little...only fit 5 meals in, becuase i woke up at 1:30pm. 3500 cals. still got my 2 gallons of water in, and all supps on time.


did shoulders and arms today, becuase i knew my energy levels would suck today, and they do. i tried to BB military, sucked, back to DB's. side laterals up 2 reps. did rear delt raise, they are hurting today. i decided to drop the weight a little for bi's and really concentrate on form, so they went down 5lbs on BB curl. i added incline DB curl. did 3 sets of tricep presses, up 5lbs.


only got 1.5 hours!!!! feel good though, actually feel energized. can't make a habit of this though...going to bed soon.

Update: Today

cheat day. water is only at 1 gallon for today...feel like crap, i think cheat days will be eliminated from my schedule from now on...they are of no benefit.

No Training


going to bed in a few minutes...

01-28-2001, 01:00 PM

decided not to train yesterday, had no energy...figured i would be better off delaying a day. diet was so so, gotta work on my diet consistency...water only a gallon again. supps on time. got 4.5 hours of sleepand took some benedryl this morning before school like an idiot. went to the nurse and slept from period 1 to period 6...ate lunch an hour late becuase of that...but at least i got my sleep in and didn't have to be in class.

todat i'm going to train chest/back, having my pre workout stuff now, i will update this again when the day is over - 8:30pm.

01-30-2001, 06:23 PM

so far all meals are on time...just trained chest and back. i can't keep doing this, its pretty much impossible for me to get through both bodyparts on one day...didn't have the intensity left for the 2 sets of deads i was supposed to do, so i skipped them. lats are fried though, switched the routine a little:

pull ups-2x4-8
bent row-2x4-8
superset: DB pull over-2x6-8

i'm considering going even lower on volume...

my sleep is really hindering me...need more sleep! from now on - 8 hours, NO LESS!!!!! oinly been getting 4-5 hours lately and i'm paying for it in gains. pull ups are down 2 reps but my bodyweight is 148 today, last week it was 143. BB row up 10lbs...incline DB press up a rep, flyes down 2 reps (what i wanted)...flat DB press down a rep and so was flat flyes.

have 2 more meals to eat, right when i'm done with my last one...i'm going to sleep!

Well Done Cack that is great news about your weight and lifts:). How do you look in the mirror at the mo?

I see your currently having troubl sleeping like myself

01-31-2001, 06:42 PM

well, only got 5 hours of sleep last night, so i skipped school and slept all day, ended up getting 14 hours! diet is off becuase of the sleep, but i needed the sleep more then the food. no training today...tomorrow - legs/abs. considering takeing a sleep aid, going to take some dymetap tonight and see if that does anything, but i don't really want to rely on drugs to sleep and to stay awake. i hate this insomnia crap, tired all day long, then when its finally time to go to sleep i can't get to sleep! grrr. water - 6 liters...yesterday also 6 liters.

"Well Done Cack that is great news about your weight and lifts. How do you look in the mirror at the mo? "

i look exactly the same except that my chest is growing extremely fast. i just weigh 8lbs more. top 2 abs are still in, same as before i started bulking.

"I see your currently having troubl sleeping like myself"

yup :(

02-02-2001, 03:11 PM

diet was 'ok'...i ate a cheat dinner...4 hamburgers on 12 grain. yum. training is moved to today - legs/abs. drank 6 liters of water...can't wait till weigh ins, i think i might be 150! woohoo :) got 7 hours of sleep last night, fuking sleeping pills don't do anything, just layed there for about an hour and finally dozed off.

will update again when training is complete - about 7:00pm.

02-02-2001, 07:56 PM

02-04-2001, 10:01 PM

02-05-2001, 08:58 PM
the best bodybuilding day i've had in a while.

trained chest/shoulders/triceps today, added 5lbs to my DB presses finally! 1 rep to my flyes....did dips instead of flat DB press...did 4 reps at 154lbs. added 5lbs to my DB shoulder presses and got 4 reps...did a drop set on laterals. tricep presses were down a rep, but thats bcuz i did chest first this time, instead of my usual biceps only.

last 3 days i've been on vacation...diet sucked, no training, no supps, water sucked, sleep was good. nothing else to add.

02-11-2001, 09:09 PM
oh yeah, i'm almost sick too, coming down with something. :(

02-12-2001, 04:30 AM
Well, currently cackerot69 I'm just working on keeping the size I've already got in my legs and am just working on tightening and hardening them up. Therefore I'm working in the 20-30 rep range and using a weight that alllows me to work through those reps and concentrate on squeeezing each rep as apposed to just pushing the weight! :)

02-12-2001, 08:17 AM
didn't we already talk about this Miss Grossman?

02-14-2001, 07:26 AM
still not much to update...feel like ****, sleep like ****, eat like a pig, and don't train.

p i s s e d was edited out of my post, thats funny...i think i see a kindergarden teacher over there...

02-23-2001, 06:48 PM
diet has been good, my new definition of diet being good - shoving as many calories as possible down my throat. water is good, sleep was fine, supps on time.


i must meet these goals every week for the next 15-20 weeks, NO MATTER WHAT.

add 5lbs to my squat every week.
add 10lbs to my deadlift every week.
add 5lbs to my bench every week.

i am going to be a powerlifter for a while. i have changed my focus. if anyone has any powerlifting tips please chime in, i'm very inexperienced in powerlifting.



incline bench-2x6
military press-2x6
skull crusher-2x6

leg curl-2x6
calf raise-2x10
ab wheel-2x5-10

eat 6000+ cals a day.

i'm in for some hard work, i can't slack, and there is a big prize in the end if i pull this off :)

02-23-2001, 07:10 PM
Whats the big prize?

02-23-2001, 08:08 PM

sleep tonight-7+ hours

i will add 5lbs to my bench on thursday.

Cack i don't mean to put a damper on your progress but......to constanly expect to see increases in weight every week is definitley overeaching as far as goals.

Again this is my opinion and I do not want to be a a negitor.At your age patience is a essence when it comes to gaining weight.

03-04-2001, 04:36 PM
i know mac, but i don't care, i will meet those goals every week, you are just scared i'm going to get bigger then you ;)

weight - 160lbs!!!!!!!

diet has been "see food"...been away from home, couldn't train...will train bench/assistance today....will add 5lbs to my bench! (yes i will mac).

no supps last 4 days.

water has been great, drinking a lot of tea too, i think tea will replace coffee from not on.

i'm going to be bigger than i thought on July 1st.

Maki Riddington
03-04-2001, 06:32 PM
Good on you:)
You very well may be bigger than me:)

03-05-2001, 02:22 PM
c'mon mac, what is your goal? lets race to our goals...so far i'm undefeated, 2-0 :)

got 2 meals down so far...woke up at 12pm...snow day.

going to add 10lbs to my deadlift today. thats right mac.

i weighed in at 162lbs this morning...probably just a little extra water inside me...

i'm now:


i want to be:

15% or lower

that goal may change, as my progress is really picking up.

so much for tea replacing coffee, isn't happening!

gonna eat again...that will put me on schedule.

will update after training...you gonna accept the challenge Maki?

03-05-2001, 07:51 PM

Cack, try and catch up with me in my lifts :p

going to add a little volume to my bench and dead days.

water is at 4.5 liters now, will get 5 down.

supps on time.

i will win this contest no problem.

03-13-2001, 11:19 AM
Training - recovery day.

Diet, weighed in at 159lbs this morning which kind of annoyed me. so, like usual i go crazy and change everything.

added 100 cals, changed ratio's, more fat, less carbs, slightly higher protein.


this should be a change for the better, as it is much easier to eat.

we'll see, i guess...only supps i'm taking now is a multivitamin (2x a day), and a calcium/magnesium (2x a day, and creatine (2g per day).

tomorrow i will add 10lbs to my bench.

Cackerot69 your nutritional count is too high. I weigh 10lbs less than you and I don't get over 40g of fat, my calories aren'y higher than 2,500 and my protein and carbs are 215-230g for protein and 315-330g for carbs and I'm making the best gains of my life especially when you count in my stacking Vanadyl and Creatine and a Multi vitamin. Take the advice of someone who has been training and reading liturature on Bodybuilding since the age of 18

03-13-2001, 03:15 PM
Big Show, just a thought ... if you weigh 10lbs less than Cackerot and think that vanadyl is actual doing something (other than making your wallet thinner), you really shouldn't be bragging about how much experience in weight training you have.

Again - just a thought.

03-13-2001, 04:11 PM
that sounds like a great idea Anthony.

Big Show, i didn't ask for your advice, especially stupid advice such as that.

03-15-2001, 10:38 PM
Diet, almost perfect, ate some pizza, no biggie. loving the new ratio's...higher fat and lower carbs, so much easier to get down.

Sleep, great...felt sick to my stomach this morning and slept for 8 extra hours woke up feeling fine, a total of 12 hours.

Supps, perfect.

Training, bench day...

increased bench by 10lbs.

increased dips by 2 reps.

flyes decreased by 2 reps (dropping these for a while)

military up 2 reps.

skullcrusher down 2 reps (may drop these, too)

sorry to intrupt your journal cack. but your adivice is soooo wrong big show. why is it too high? he didn't gain from any less calories, so what is he supposed to do? and ever wonder why you're older than him, and yet, he's stronger and bigger than you? i'm a year older than cack, but 15 pounds lighter. (but 5% less body fat) and i eat over 4200 cals. are you saying that that's too high? so if i don't gain on less cals, what's the point in training? :rolleyes:

03-21-2001, 11:40 AM
Diet, good...somehow my body is managing to maintain at 160-165lbs dispite me eating 5700 cals, wtf?

the only thing i need to change, is that i'm dropping N-Large...i'm so sick of the taste and its giving me stomach aches in the morning. not sure what i will replace it with, yet.

i've been sick, no training..may train today, not feeling so good today, either.

supps, always on time.

sleep, sunday - 5 hours
monday - 5 hours
last night - 9 hours

have lots of extra school work going on, have to work around it, oh well.

Goals, eat a lot, sleep a lot, lift a lot.

03-21-2001, 09:24 PM
trained today.

increased squat by 10lbs, i'm not sure how long this will go on, but for now i'm just going to eat up this progress...

leg curl - no progress...decided to just do a triple drop set, instead of 3 straight sets.

may have a change in diet soon, not quite sure...need to get some more responses on my thread in diet (yes, go look at it and reply). diet was good today, though.

going to sleep when i get tired, probably going to be a snow day tomorrow - woohoo. :)

supps, damn, i forgot to take my creatine, going to do that now...this journal does have a benefit after all.

sleep a lot

03-23-2001, 04:14 PM
Cack, if you keep eating like that, your parents might have to mortgage their home... or maybe give up their first born.

03-24-2001, 08:49 PM
i woke up at 4:00pm today.

Diet sucked.

i'm full of energy now, so i will most likely train tonight.

i am switching to a 2-day split, i always skip one of my workout for one reason or another.

Day 1

Leg Extention-1 triple drop set.
Leg Curl-2x6
Calf Raise-2x12
Weighted Crunch-2x10

Day 2

Bench Press-3x3
DB Shoulder Press-2x6-10
Skull Crusher-1x6-10
Chin-1 drop set + forced negatives
Straight-Bar Curl-1x6-10

Supps, perfect.

Sleep, 15 hours.

Goals: Be consistent!!!!!

03-24-2001, 10:47 PM
How in the HELL did you sleep 15 hours straight??? Are you Dracula or something? LOL. j/k, I slept 11 hours last weekend--a first in about 10 years!

Anyway, I hate to disturb your journal (yeah right), but I never understood why you take so much oil. Isn't that bad for you? And if you want to make a new thread (if you think it's a hot topic), please do. I just wanted to see what you have to say about it cuz I notice a lot in your diet. Isn't that dangerous for your cholesterol?

03-24-2001, 11:20 PM
the oils are all unsaturated and contain no cholesterol.

the reason for consuming so much is simple - i need tons of calories, and fat has 9 cals per gram. oil isn't as filling as a bagel, oatmeal, rice or some other carb source.

03-25-2001, 08:02 AM
Hey Justin, why do you have your first few meals 4 hours apart and the last few quite close together, like 2 hours. Is it just practicallity?

Oh, and have you ever thought that your body is more concerned with bodily development and upward growth instead of outward growth?....

03-25-2001, 08:17 AM

yes i've thought about it, and i really don't give a sh*t :)

03-25-2001, 08:50 AM
I thought about something that you wrote about hypothyroism...

go check up with your doctor.. that could be it.
i dont understand why u are not growing in 6000kcal...

I too didn't gain more in 3500kcal but that is possible.. but thinkabout it.. dat's 6 grand kilo calories... hm... crazy!..

or u can say 6 million calories. LOL

Podium Kreatin
03-25-2001, 04:48 PM
don't u mean hyperthyroidism? I don't think he'd have that, cuz it's a pretty lethal state. victims' eyes usually are about to pop out, cheek bones very obvious, and there is extreme dystrophy of tissues.

i don't think u should depend on diet solely for weight gain, could mean that u don't train enuff, or u train too much. being less than 150, i don't eat more than 3000kcals a day, bc i find that my body would convert excess into fat. i've cutted to the extremes b4 (to 4%), and i don't like to bulk to 15, then drop to 5%. However, if one likes how he is looking, then go for it.

03-25-2001, 05:42 PM
here you go again Podium. stop posting about topics you know nothing about.

and, learn how to type.

03-26-2001, 07:29 PM
well, nothing much to report.

i was playing football yesterday and hurt my back...no lifting today, but i shouldn't miss any workouts, since my 2 day split can be pretty flexible.

going to try to lift wednesday, diet was been ok today, got about 5000 cals down, in 4 meals...pretty sh*tty actually...going to try to eat again before bed.

supps, taken.

sleep, i didn't sleep at all on saturday night...slept 13 hours last night, and napped for an hour and a half...so 14.5 hours.

sleep is probably what is holding me back, i can't seem to do much about it though....

03-28-2001, 03:04 PM
well, back was fine yesterday, figured i would give it an extra day to recover and it hurts again today...wtf?

got 5150 cals down yesterday, not bad, but not good...either.

the only reason for the 2-day split was so i could focus on school, i've got myself cuaght up, so no need for that anymore. going back to a 3 day split next week, more focus on muscle gain, than strength gain. this little contest shouldn't be the main focus of my training. although i'm sticking to 3x3 on the big three lifts, i'm adding more volume to my assistance work.

supplements, good.

sleep, 11 hours.

motivation - very low.

from now on i'm going to start "rating" my days. on a scale from 1-10, 10 being a perfect day.

today - 6.

Goals: get my ass in gear (not literally)

also, i weighed myself today - 162lbs. i was 167 last week, go figure.

03-28-2001, 03:12 PM
Stop taking so much crap and maybe your sleep will even out.

Biatch. :)

03-28-2001, 05:05 PM
i'm not taking anything...multivitamin, creatine, and a cal/mag.

a cup of coffee at 6am, too.

03-28-2001, 05:10 PM

Anthony (Mr. Grammar correcter), made a grammar mistake!


"Stop taking so much crap and maybe you're sleep will even out."

stop taking so much crap and you are sleep will even out?


sorry, had to point that out.

03-30-2001, 10:45 AM
Diet, has to change, 7 meals per day and 6800 cals isn't happening. I'm going to attempt 5 meals per day 6240 cals.

Training, none.

Sleep, wednesday night - 4 hours
last night - 11 hours

Supps, good

To early to give a rating, breakfast is going down now...

04-01-2001, 03:00 PM
well, i give yesterday an 8...on the rating scale.

got about 5500 cals down...about 2000 from pizza and wings...

Training starts tomorrow, back is fully healed, and i'm done being a lazy ass.

supps, fine.

slept 3 hours, from 9am - 12pm...feel great. will try to get more sleep tonight, though.

so far i have 2 meals down...

Maki Riddington
04-01-2001, 06:47 PM
Cack maybe I'll come down and train with ya sometime.
I've always wanted to visit New York:)

04-03-2001, 02:26 PM
Diet, 3 meals down, so far - perfect.

Sleep, absolutely none!!!!! and i wonder why i'm not growing......

Training, tried to train push yesterday, didn;t work out very well...decided to have a "do over" day today, then i couldn't sleep.

well, motivation is at an all time low, i need to sleep and can't! that is very frustrating.

i've gone to the doc, he gives me the "its all in your head" Bullsh*t!!!! dumbass. over the counter sleep aids don't do a thing...neither do those herbal remedy rip offs.

school is tying me down, too...

i'm going to try a new approach to training. everything is going wrong now anyway.

instead of my usual low volume, low frequency workouts...i'm going to try a low volume, high frequency routine. i will train 5 times a week, 1 bodypart per day, but still keeping low volume. need something totally new...never really done this before, so why not?


Eat my meals, consistently.
Train consistently.

04-03-2001, 02:37 PM
It seems to me that you never give anything a chance. How can you say that something isn't working when you barely give it a week to work...

Just lift, eat and sleep for a few weeks and see how you get on.

A few weeks? I would say 4-5 weeks.
Gotta be patient!

04-03-2001, 11:55 PM
Looks like your ass is grass in the competition then :D Good luck with the problems for liftin'. Just stick with it.

04-04-2001, 07:23 AM
Mac is right, Patience is the key.

04-04-2001, 11:53 PM
patience? what the hell is that?


today diet was perfect, all 5400 cals down, 6 liters of water.

sleep, 14 hours...only going to get about 4 tonight, though.

training, trained back/biceps.

totally new routine, can't really comment on progression. deads are out, rows are out, all chins...and lots of them.

doing a sort of chin specialization program (something you would like mac :))

not going to step on the scale every week anymore, every 4 weeks. going to stick with 5500 cals for a while, anymore and i'm just not consistent.

i have consulted my training journal...whenever i did 5x a week training my progress was extremely slow. 3x a week it is......

as you can see, i change my training every 3 days....oh well. i'm going to be consistent this time, even though i say that all the time.

i've deteriorated to babbling in this post...so i shall stop.


be consistent.

04-05-2001, 01:39 AM
Go on the Wbb routine;)

04-06-2001, 11:26 AM
diet is perfect. so far i have 4 days with all 5400 cals down, and my 6 liters of water.

training, yesterday was a recovery day. i am extremely sore from wednesdays back/bicep workout. my forearms, biceps, lats, and rear delts are killing me. today is push day, hopefully the soreness goes down some before i have to train...it will definately hinder me.

sleep, 4 hours wednesday night, 14 hours last night.

04-06-2001, 12:46 PM
Damn cack, how inconsistent is your sleeping patterns!

04-06-2001, 02:01 PM
how come you only get 4 hours some nights?

04-06-2001, 02:34 PM
i don't really know avatar.

it seems that's just how my body is, i guess.

every other night i just can't get to sleep until 1-2am...then after only getting 4 hours of sleep i sleep for 10-15 hours.

04-06-2001, 06:35 PM
Ha! you got some problems man...You don't grow and you can't always sleep...Ah well, rather you than me....

04-06-2001, 09:25 PM
Maybe it has something to do with the foods you eat?

Or maybe you just need to find a chick and get laid?

04-06-2001, 09:32 PM
i think #2 is closer, Anthony.


today, diet - perfect. 5400 cals, 8 liters of water, all supps taken on time.

training, none as of yet......

sleep, no school tomorrow so it will be good.


be consistent like i have been the past 4 days.

04-07-2001, 05:31 PM
well, yesterday i ended up getting an extra meal in...so i got about 6500 cals. rating - 11 :)

today i have 3 meals down so far...i ate out for meal 2...i have about 4000 cals down at the moment, going to eat again in a bit.

Training, soreness isn't as severe right now, so i'm going to break a new PR on bench in a little while.

sleep last night was 9 hours.


bench 170x3

04-08-2001, 01:51 AM
ended up getting about 5500 cald down, in 4 meals. not bad.

didn't train...i think i pulled a muscle in my forearms or something.....

sleep, no school so will be good.

04-10-2001, 06:01 PM
Diet has been perfect, 5500 cals down. water 4-6 liters, supps all on time.

training, ended up doing some things monday, leg day rescheduled for today.

sleep has been great, 9 hours monday, 12 hours last night.

Maki Riddington
04-10-2001, 08:24 PM
Pulled a muscle in your forearm..........Bwhahahahahahahahahaa.

04-10-2001, 08:29 PM
LOL, shut your mouth mac.

well, anyways, i was wrong about that...pain is gone, guess i was just sore. from the chins, i swear!!! :)

04-11-2001, 12:51 AM
Trained legs, great workout. progressed on both squats and leg curls. right on schedule with squats.

Diet, once i finish this bagel - perfect. 5500 cals, 6 liters of water, all supps on time.

Sleep, not going to be good, probably about 3 hours.

trained at 1am...damn.

Goals for my contests:


Podium Kreatin
04-11-2001, 02:15 PM
what're ur current lifts?

04-11-2001, 04:33 PM
You must have tiny legs if your only going for 50 lbs. more in squat then bench.

04-13-2001, 12:00 AM
trained chest/shoulders/tri's today. average workout, damn BB bench isn't progressing anymore...used DB presses just becuase i was p*ssed off at not progressing on BB. after i hit chest i have no intensity left, i need to switch to a 4 day split, but i can never stick to one. i have no confidence on chest day, in the back of my mind i know i'm not going to progress very much, and i get discouraged.

diet, yesterday only got 4 meals, 4600-5000 cals, i made up for it today by eating 6 meals, 5500-6000 cals.

water has been crappy, 2-4 liters...i've been doing a ton of things, hard to keep up with everything.

sleep has been great, though. 7-10 hours the past 2 weeks, been napping a lot, when i get home from school i eat, nap for 2 hours, eat, then train...and of course eat after that.

supplements always perfect.

OT stuff, been absent from school 26 times, 28 and i have to do a project to make it up...anymore after that and i'm f*cked.

spring break next week.

starting to get fat...probably 14.5-15%. going to start cleaning up the diet soon, maybe even start cutting, although 5'9 170lbs at 15%, not much muscle to cut for.

"You must have tiny legs if your only going for 50 lbs. more in squat then bench."

my legs are actually my best bodypart, squats just aren't my focus, that may change though, since my bench doesn't progress.

"what're ur current lifts?"


04-13-2001, 07:50 AM
Cack, i thought i'd tell you that i only read your journal to make me laugh now. It is becoming a comedy script.

04-13-2001, 11:11 AM

Stick to a routine already! You are so gonna lose!


04-13-2001, 02:58 PM
Latty, i've been on the same routine for like 6 months now. some modifications, but basically the same.

i *think* about changing my routine, but never do. :)

Chicken, glad i could amuse you :)

04-14-2001, 07:31 AM

04-14-2001, 12:49 PM
diet sucked yesterday, managed about 4500 cals, in 4 meals...water was a gallon.

training, today.

Well, i reached my goal, i am now:


still gaining, though.

04-16-2001, 01:15 AM
Trained Back/Bi's today. Progressed on everything, did some cable curls instead of my usual standing BB curls.

Diet is great, one more meal to go, which will be eaten. Water is a gallon.

Supps, perfect.

Going to keep bulking until i just get to fat :)

04-16-2001, 07:51 AM
I've always been a visual guy.

04-29-2001, 11:45 PM

Just curious to know why you haven't updated?:confused:

05-08-2001, 10:31 PM

05-09-2001, 12:36 AM

05-09-2001, 10:49 AM
