    I looked around the site and it looks interesting. Started training a couple months ago, after a pretty long hiatus (knee injury, caused lots of my muscles to atrophy). Weight when I started 12 weeks ago was 145, weight today is 160. Pretty happy with that, since my metabolism is so high. Hopefully I'll keep gaining about a pound a week.

    Could you please tell us what the abbreviations stand for?

    Sure:

    BBP = barbell flat bench press
    RW = machine row
    IDBP = incline dumbell bench press
    LPD = lat pulldown
    DBF = flat dumbell flyes
    SQ = squatts
    SCR = seated calf raises
    LE = leg extensions
    LC = leg curls
    BBE = barbell extensions
    SS = shoulder shrugs
    DBC = dumbell curls
    FR = front raises
    HC = hammer curls
    LR = lat raises

    I think that's all of them. Also note that I only write down the work sets. In general I also do a warm up set before and a low-weight/high-rep burn out set after the work sets. I'm too lazy to type those in. Also the reason I use the abbreviations.

    Jim, I would recommend that you drop the front raises as you anterior delts get more than enough stimulation from benching

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    leg extensions are much different from before because they changed machines on me at the gym, so I still need to figure out where I'm at on that one. I moved the shrugs to today but didn't do them because I just did them on sunday.

    I tried chins today for the first time (since middle school) instead of lat pull downs.

    Started dips today, surprised I could do it. bench didn't go up at all, I think my shoulders are failing too soon, can't even feel my chest being worked. I guess I'll have to wait until the shoulders catch up.

    Those jerks took 6 weeks to remodel the gym instead of 2. Now I can finally start going again.
