Hey everybody, I'm 19 and I'm a skinny guy :( lol. I started working out three months ago, I had a few routines that I switched around, but they basically consisted of 4 chest exercises, 2 tricep exercises, 4 bicep exercises, 4 leg exercises, 4 bicep exercises, and 4 shoulder exercises. My current routine looks like this:

Monday
Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6
Decline Dumbbell Bench Press 4 x 8
Arnold Press 3 x 8
Rolling Dumbbell Extensions 3 x 10
Weighted Situps 3 x 10

Tuesday
Goblet Squats 3 x 20
Glute Ham Raises 3 x failure
Barbell Row 4 x 8
Rear Dumbbell Raises 3 x 10
Bicycle crunches 3 x 10 weight when it becomes easy

Thursday
Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6, 10 + 7
Decline Dumbbell Bench Press (palms facing) 4 x 8, 10 + 2
Lateral Raises 3 x 8, 7
Tricep Pushdowns or Skull Crushers 3 x 10, 90
Oblique Situps 3 x 10

Friday
Barbell Hack Squat 3 x 10
Leg Press or any other leg pressing exercise 2 x 10
Lat Pulldown 4 x 8
Dumbbell Curls 3 x 8
Russian Twists 3 x 20

I have made some progress I believe. I just finished my third month and I'm pretty excited. I should tell you that I'm not on here to look like arnold or anyone like that. I just want to look really good lol. My ideal body would be ryan reynolds, no homo lol. I want to post my progress pics so far but I don't know how, so if someone could tell me that would be great.

Barbell Row 4 x 8 - 44 pounds (Maybe I should raise this I'm not sure)

Shoulder Clean Press 3x 8 - 12.5 pounds (This is pretty low but I didnt know how much I could handle because it was my first time doing it so I'll raise it next week)

I decided to do a run today since I'm going to start playing in a basketball league starting the 21st. So every wednesday now I'll run just under 2 miles. I havent ran since the summer and it really showed today. I got that feeling where you can taste blood but its not actually blood lol, I dont know if anyone else gets that. I took about 20-25 minutes today and took lots of rests which I didn't do in the summer. My normal in the summer was 2 miles in just under 15 minutes with one if not any rests during that time. So yeah, I got some improvement to do in that area but I think I'll get there pretty quickly. We'll see how next week goes :)

Today was my 3rd day of my 14th week and this is how it went:

Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6, 45 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press (palms facing) 4 x 8, 35 pounds

Lateral Raises 2x8, 17.5 pounds, 1x8-15 pounds

Skull Crushers 3 x 10, 22.5 pounds

Decline Situps 4 x 10

Felt really, really good and I feel I'm getting more confident and stronger each day :) I can't wait for my weigh in/pictures in 2 weeks

Today was the last day of my 14th week, this is how it went:

Calf Raises 3x20 for each leg

Bulgarian Split Squat 2 x 10 - 35 pounds

Lat Pulldown 4 x 8 - 170 pounds with bowflex

Dumbbell Curls 1x8, 2x6 - 30 pounds

Russian Twist with medicine ball 3 x 20 (each side is 1 rep)

I had some trouble with the dumbbell curls for some reason, I think it could be more of a psychological factor. Also with the split squats I had a little bit of trouble. Overall though, it was a very good week and I felt great.

Today was the start of my 15th week and this is how it went:

Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6 - 47.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press 4 x 8 - 40 pounds

Arnold Press - 3x8 - 27.5 pounds

Tricep Dips - 3x20

V-ups - 3x20

I felt really good today like have been feeling the past few weeks so thats really exciting. I had a little bit of increase in my weights this week from last week so thats great. Not too much increase but still an increase. I think thats the right way to do it anyways, baby steps.

I'll probably increase the weights a bit next week, it was a little easy today. Tomorrow I am suppose to go for a run but there might be a thunderstorm, so we'll see what happens. Hopefully there is good weather :)

I managed to fit in a nice run today before the storm came in, just under 2 miles as usual. I felt 10x better then last week, even with colder weather and wind. I took less breaks and didn't have that blood taste until the end of my run. I was fine until about the 1.3 mile mark and then I started running out of gas. Overall, I had a much better run and I'm looking forward to next week which will probably be my last run because I'm going to start playing basketball on Wednesdays. I might run on the weekends during the summer, but for now we'll see how I feel playing basketball only.

Looks good, but if you can get a gym membership and have access to more weight it would probably benefit you a ton.

keep it up!

How does your diet look?

I'm trying to do the best I can considering I'm at school most of the day plus I don't buy my food lol. I eat around 2500 calories a day and keep my protein amount around 150g/day. I'm struggling a bit with my carb intake since I am Italian and pasta is a big thing lol. So here is an example of a day:

Breakfast
scrambled egg whites with tad of ketchup lol
bowl of the healthiest cereal I have with skim milk...sometimes a cinnamon raisin bagel
Orange

After Workout
25-30g whey shake with skim milk
If i know I'm going to be a little bit low in protein during the day, I'll throw in a 23g protein bar

I really can't say what I have for lunch and dinner because it's usually whatever my mom makes lol :P
but it usually consists of some meat with a vegetable, sometimes a pasta meal.

Throughout the day I'll have snacks like various fruits. I usually have two red delicious apples with 2-3 table spoons of peanut butter. I'll have lots of vegetables too like celery, cucumber, carrot, lettuce e.t.c
I only drink water too unless I didn't have enough fruits, I'll have this Arthurs fruit smoothie thing lol.

Not going to give diet advice, other then adding some protein would help a lot.


i dont buy my food, i give my mom a list,

tuna
porkchops
fish
bagels
eggwhites
sandwich meat/bread

and then its easy.

Take some control of your diet and your gains will be much better. It takes me 5 minutes in the morning before school to make a sandwich and throw a granola bar into a bag.

SkinnyEuro
04-07-2010, 11:35 PM
Isn't it suppose to be 1.5g/kilogram? I don't want to consume too much because too much is bad for your kidneys. I would like to eat tuna but I haven't really seen any good recipes. Plus, I had a tuna sandwich from subway once which really turned me off lol.

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press (palms facing) 4 x 8, 37.5 pounds

Lateral Raises 3x8, 17.5 pounds

Tricep Pushdowns with Bowflex 3 x 10, 110 pounds

Decline Situps 4 x 15

Felt good as usual, nothing to complain about :)

Texas Savage
04-08-2010, 10:12 PM
I hate the taste of tuna but i still eat it.

I can knock down a can in under 2 minutes, just swig it down with water and you dont even taste it.

Get your diet in check, just do it and you will see much better gains.

and once again, get a gym membership.

SkinnyEuro
04-08-2010, 11:45 PM
Hahahaha yeah, as I said I'll try to focus on it much more during the summer. And I'll also try and see if I can get a membership. I'm hesitant to get one though because I have pretty much everything at home. I'm missing a chin up bar, and weights for dumbbells and barbell (Max Dumbell=57.5, Max Barbell=90 pounds :()

I had a good day eating today:

Breakfast:
Egg Whites with tad of ketchup (approx 11g protein)
Satisfaction Cereal With skim milk (approx. 18g protein)
Orange

Lunch:
Ham (Approx 25g protein)

Post-Workout
30g worth protein powder in 13g worth skim milk

Dinner:
2 bowls Very Healthy Chilli lol (kidney beans, red/yellow peppers, ground beef, some other random beans lol. approx 35-40g protein)
Small Bowl Broccoli w. olive oil

Snacks:
1 Red Delicious
5 6cm stick Celery
3 slice Canteloupe
2 slice veal with mushrooms and this wine sauce (approx 13g protein
2 fat free yogurt (9g protein total)
handful of pistachio (approx 13g protein)

So yeah, a big protein day for me lol. I'm probably missing a couple snacks that I can't remember, but that's most of what I ate.

Today was the last day of my 15th week, this is how it went:

Tuck Jumps 2x15, 1x10 (increase next week)

Bulgarian Split Squat 1 x 10, 1 x 6 - 35 pounds (decrease next week)

Lat Pulldown 4 x 8 - 170 pounds with bowflex (increase next week)

Dumbbell Curls 3x6 32.5 pounds

Russian Twist with medicine ball 3 x 20 (each side is 1 rep) (increase next week)

I felt pretty good today, but I did feel a little tired because I didn't have a good sleep last night. Next week I'll increase most of the exercises. I'm going to decrease the split squats though because I don't feel I'm doing them 100% correctly, so I'm going to take off 5 pounds or so. Next week is my 16th week which is the last week in my four week sets. That means I'm going to take progress pics next weekend, I'm really excited :)

SkinnyEuro
04-11-2010, 09:11 PM
As I mentioned, tomorrow is the last week in my 4 week sets. I'm going to try really hard, not that I don't every week, but I'm going to push myself extra this week because I really want to see results next weekend

Today was the start of my 16th week and this is how it went:

Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6 - 52.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 8 - 42.5 pounds, 1x8 - 40 pounds

Arnold Press - 3x8 - 27.5 pounds

Tricep Dips - 3x20

V-ups with exercise ball between legs- 3x20

I need to find a gym lol. I already maxed out my dumbbell bench press pretty much (I have 55max)

SkinnyEuro
04-13-2010, 01:35 PM
Today was the second day of my 16th week and here's how it went:

Goblet Squats 3 x 20 - 45 pounds

Hamstring Curls on exercise ball - Both legs - 2x20, one leg each - 1x10

Underhand Barbell Row 4 x 8 - 64 pounds

Seated Dumbbell Clean Press 2x10,1x6 - 20 pounds

Bicycle Crunches - 3x40 (one rep is each side)

I realized I really needed to increase my rows which kind of upsets me because that means the past weeks were pretty pointless. I'm still confident though, and I felt great with the increases in the other exercises.

SkinnyEuro
04-14-2010, 02:22 PM
I just finished my just under 2 mile run today. It was pretty intense lol. I'm not back to my usual time yet (bit under 15 min), I took 16-17 min today. I still have that blood taste but I'm sure it will go away soon. I know running is like the worst thing to do if you want to gain mass, but I want to get rid of some left over fat around my stomach when I was a little chunky. I have some bad genetics that all my fat goes to my stomach so yeah, I really want to get rid of that and get some nice abs. Also as I mentioned, I'm preparing for this basketball summer league that starts next wednesday. So this could be my last week running but I think I might run one day on the weekend because I really like running outside when it's nice out.

Today was the second last day in my 4 week sets and here is how it went:

Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6, 47.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press (palms facing) 4 x 8, 40 pounds

Lateral Raises 3x8, 17.5 pounds

Skull Crushers 3 x 10, 22.5 pounds

Decline Situps 4 x 10

Today was probably my worst day in a long time. I felt myself rushing alot of the exercises because I have an exam tomorrow, so today my workout felt more like a chore. One thing that was good however was that my back feels good after the situps. Last week my lower back was sore.

Today was the last day of my 4 week sets, here is how it went:

Tuck Jumps 3x15

Bulgarian Split Squat 2x10 - 25 pounds (i hate this exercise lol)

Lat Pulldown 4 x 8 - 180 pounds with bowflex

Dumbbell Curls 1x6 - 35 pounds, 2x6 - 32.5 pounds

Russian Twist with medicine ball 4 x 20 (each side is 1 rep)

Today was just disgusting. My curls were just horrible and my squats weren't good at all. Maybe I need a deload week or I just need to get my mind of school, I don't know. Good news I guess is that pics are on sunday :)

04-18-2010, 05:37 PM
I took my end of 16 weeks pictures and I'm a little dissapointed. I felt great the past few weeks and I thought I would look a little better. My weight fluctuated a lot. Just a couple days ago I was a little over 178 and I ended up just under 176. I have to say that this past week was my worst week in a while which is probably because of exams have really fucked up my mind. I feel I hit a bit of a wall. I like the progress I've made since January but I want to take that next step so to speak. Good news is that its the summer :D and I'm ready to focus really hard now.

Today was the start of my 4 week set (17th week) and this is how it went:

Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 6 - 52.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 8 - 45 pounds

Arnold Press - 1x8,2x6 - 30 pounds

Tricep Dips - 2x20, 1x15

V-ups with exercise ball between legs- 1x15

Plain and simple, today was shit. I've decided to make this week a deload week. As I mentioned before, school has really fucked up my mind. So that combined with my disappointment at my 16 week pictures and the fact that I've felt like shit emotionally the past week, has made me want to take a little break. I start playing in a basketball league this Friday, so hopefully I'll have some fun and it'll get my spirits back up. Also, tommorrow is my last day of exams so that'll also get me feeling better. Even though I feel like garbage now, I am positive for the future. After exams finish, I'll start looking into a different routine and I plan on starting again on the 26th.

Yesterday (tuesday) I finally finished school. I just finished the first game in my basketball league and I felt decent. I actually played some during the day too so yeah, not a good day for building mass lol. The important thing though is I had lots of fun and I already feel more positive and happy now that schools done. As I said before, I am still looking for a routine which I will start on Monday.

For a routine, do SPBR. Simple. Do it. And get a gym membership so you can start using real weight, or buy equipment.

And once again-diet is probably the biggest factor here. not getting enough protein.

Thanks for your support guys. I'm going to start using fitday.com Monday so I can start seeing some solid percentages of what I'm eating.

This is what I have in my "gym":

Barbells - 120 pounds max
Dumbbells - 55 pound max each
Bowflex
Bench
Weighted Vest
6 pound Medicine ball
Exercise Ball
Bosu Ball

Say I don't get a gym, what do you think is the best thing I can add? I was thinking more weights for barbell and chin up bar.

In all honesty, i would say sell all that you have there, and get a gym membership-if money is the problem.

Otherwise i dont know. I mean, its going to be a helluva lot harder for you to progress if your limited to 120lb Barbell. I mean i dont see how you are squatting/Deadlifting with 120lbs and expecting progress. Same for Bench once you get to that point.

All you really need is a power rack, and weights.

If you could get one thing, i would say more weight plates.

Today I was going to just start over the routine I was doing and just switch some exercises around but I hurt myself :( I was really pumped today, I felt good and confident. When I was getting ready for my first exercise, the DB bench press, I was adjusting my arch and I put too much pressure on my neck. Hopefully it will feel better by tomorrow. I might continue with my previous routine, or I might start EXMGQ routine.

I started using fitday today to get some real numbers. My diet today wasn't good. I expected this because there was no food in my house lol.

Calories - 2,659
Fat - 43%
Carbs - 36%
Protein - 20%

Tomorrow I'm expecting protein and carbs to switch places basically

Today I decided to skip my Monday workout and just start with the second day workout. This is how it went:

Goblet Squats 3 x 20 - 45 pounds

Hamstring Curls on exercise ball - Both legs - 2x15, one leg each - 2x10

Underhand Barbell Row 4 x 8 - 64 pounds (excluding bar)

Seated Dumbbell Clean Press 2x10,1x6 - 20 pounds

Bicycle Crunches - 3x40 (one rep is each side)

I'm really really happy that my neck felt really good today. It's not perfect but it was good enough to do my exercises. I felt a little off because of the deload week, but otherwise I felt great and I think my mind and body are refreshed now. I still feel a little hopeless but I just have to stay positive and confident and stick to my diet. I have to increase my rows next week, there really light for me and I know whoever reads this is probably laughing at that weight lol. Tomorrow I have a basketball game which I'm excited about and I'm looking forward to Thursday's workout. I will post my diet for the day a little later on.

Lat Pulldown 4 x 8 - 170 pounds with bowflex

Dumbbell Curls 3x6 - 32.5 pounds

Russian Twist with medicine ball 3 x 20 (each side is 1 rep)

I felt okay today, a little out of breath and fatigued. It's probably because I overworked myself this past week with basketball.

These amounts are probably not 100% because I had some Oktoberfest sausages and I didn't know the nutritional information, so I just got some random nutritional information from the web. I'm pumped for my next basketball game tonight. I'll post how it went later on.

I just realized that the last week has been my 19th week lol. So today was the second last day of my 19th week and here's how it went:

Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 2x7,1x6, 47.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Flyes 4x8, 17.5 pounds (increase)

Lateral Raises 3x6, 22.5 pounds

Skull Crushers 3x8, 25 pounds

Leg Raises 3x22

Felt really good today, theres room for lots of increase next week so I'm looking forward to that. Also, I'm most likely going to get a gym membership either next week or the week after so hopefully I can see some better gains and it will help keep me motivated.

Tuck Jumps 3x15 (increase)

Single Leg Squats 2x10 (increase)

Lat Pulldown 2 x 8, 2x10 - 170 pounds with bowflex (increase)

Dumbbell Curls 1x6,2x7 - 32.5 pounds

Russian Twist with medicine ball 3 x 26 (each side is 1 rep)

I was surprised that I could pull off some single leg squats today, since I hurt my ankle yesterday. It mostly hurts when i do a rolling motion with my foot since that's the way I landed. I'm trying to elevate it now and put ice on for 20min then 30min off and repeat. I felt really good today besides the leg exercises.

I had some honey bbq chicken from Wendy's lol. So figure a few 100 calories, and some protein e.t.c

I didn't eat enough today because I had basically no meat in my house. I've been using fitday for a couple weeks now and I realize how little I was eating the previous 3 months. For ex, for breakfast I would have fruit, cereal and bagel and then for lunch I would have a sandwich with some lunch meat, fruit, veggie, granola bar. So I basically had about 200+g carbs and like 60g protein by 2:30 lol. I'm happy that I'm eating better and I do feel stronger :)

Today was even worse then yesterday lol. I had quite a bit of pasta, since I am Italian :P I also had a piece of cake because of mothers day. I haven't had sweets since christmas basically, so about a good 5 months. I actually did have like a couple gushers yesterday lol but that's insignificant. So here's my dietary facts for today excluding the pasta, meatballs, eggballs, meat, cake:

Calories - 1,147
Protein - 98.4g 35%
Carbs - 98.8g 33%
Fat - 43.5g 33%

I did have a lot of pasta, but I also had alot of meat. So I'm gonna estimate and say I had around 2500 cal, and 200g carb, 180g protein. I'm going to start taking some creatine tomorrow and I'm gonna get a membership the week after :) I am most likely going to start with the SPBR.

I just looked over the benefits of fish oil and I am most likely going to try and get some of that too. The two benefits that really hit me were the decrease in stress it might cause, and also the decrease in depression/anxiety. I learned quite a bit in my psychology class about psychological diseases and the many drugs that treat them. These drugs (SSRI's like Prozac,Zoloft e.t.c) have lots of negative effects, so I'm glad to see that there's something out there that could help me with no negative effects :)

Dumbbell Bench Press 1x7,1x6,1x5 - 52.5 pounds

Decline Dumbbell Bench Press 2x8,2x7 - 47.5 pounds

Arnold Press - 3x6 - 32.5 pounds

Tricep Dips - 4x20

V-ups with exercise ball between legs- 2x20,1x15,1x10

I felt really good today, probably because of the mental factor of taking creatine lol. My ankle has been feeling really good over the past couple of days. It's still not 100%, but I hope these next couple of days before my next basketball game will make it normal.

I had another basketball tonight and we won again!! :) This was the best game I had so far (10 or 12 pts). My ankle was 100% but I did hurt my knee :( I don't know if I mentioned it in my log before but I partially tore my acl in Dec 08. I'm icing it as I type this lol. I'm really really hoping that I just fatigued it and did not get a little bit of a tear. We'll see how it feels tomorrow. Good thing tomorrow isn't my leg day, so we'll see how it feels on Friday.

I just realized it's picture day for me this weekend lol. I'm not expecting to see a huge difference because I did take a week off. That is the right attitude also because I really wanted to see some unrealistic gains last month, and when I didn't I got depressed. So this time, I know to just take the pictures with a grain of salt so to speak and just continue lifting heavier and heavier.

I was actually surprised at how good the pics came out, but it might be because of the lighting. I was also surprised at the weigh in at 172.8 since you're suppose to gain a few pounds in the first week or two you start taking creatine. I'm guessing this is because of fat loss I might have had from playing basketball. If this is the case then :) lol. My abs looked alot better because of basketball and I really pushed myself with my exercises because I felt I was slacking a bit since it is the final exercise. I'm going to read up on SPBR and the 5x5 routine and I'll possibly start either of those tomorrow. If I don't decide then I'll just use the next week to decide and do one more week with my current routine. I'm going to get rid of some weeks in between next picture day because the pic is getting too long lol.

Today I was not able to get to the gym so I just tried to match the first day of the routine at home and I will start with the second day on Thursday. So instead of being MWF, I'm going to do MTF since I have basketball on Wednesdays.

Carbs where a bit high. They came from whole wheat pasta and kashi cereal, fruits and so not bad. Basketball game went good today. We won again :D our team is tearing it up (4-1, should actually be 5-0) I somehow forgot my shorts so I couldn't play until the second half (friend brought pair) which was probably good for me so I didn't overwork my knee.

I'm finally getting a membership tomorrow and as I mentioned, will start with day 2 of SPBR.

I miscalculated the bar weight so one set was a little higher so I wasnt able to get to 3 reps. DB press was pretty good. Hanging leg raises frustrated me because I kept on swinging in my later reps and it really put off my concentration. I shouldn't have let it get to me.

Squats pissed me off today. I feel that I could pull off a lot of weight - even more then 210 - its just that the bar is killing my shoulder because the shoulder bone really sticks out alot so the bar irritates it alot. I have to try and find a comfortable position. Everything else was pretty good, very pleased with DB curls.

I remember I left some foods out yesterday, but still it was a bad day. Today was an improvement. I think I need to get my calories up though. I have 24 week pictures on the weekend and I'm expecting a noticeable improvement which I shouldn't do because that will get me down if I don't see what I want. If my weight is even lower then 4 weeks ago I know I have to increase my calories, because there is no way I should be losing weight if I'm taking creatine and exercising consistently.

I know the feeling very well. Next day roofing, bending down to throw shingles rolled up off the roof, and then carrying 90lb bundles of shingles back up on the roof after a day of deadlifts is hell. You'll get past it, and soon you'll start to love the deadlift. Don't blame the exercise, start looking at your recovery. Strong lifts getting better, keep at it!

The pics weren't too bad this time around. The only thing that bothered me is that I weigh 170 when I weighed 176 a couple months back. There is no way I should've lost weight while I was taking creatine and increasing weight as much as I could for the past month. The only thing I could think of is that I'm not eating enough calories. I want to try and keep a constant amount of at least 2,500 calories. I was getting around 2,000 most of the last 4 weeks. Some good news, my back is feeling really good now. Bad news is that I'm still pretty tired from my party on Saturday. I have my basketball game tomorrow and then I get back in the gym for the first time since Saturday on Thursday. I also haven't taken creatine since Saturday. I will start again tomorrow. I know I said I was going to cut back on some of the previous weeks pictures, but I noticed my half year pictures (wooo lol) are in a couple weeks, so I mind as well do a side beside, before and after pic then.

Next time I need to use a pad for squats. They absolutely kill my shoulder because the bone sticks out alot. I know I can probably do even more than 210, so I need to use this pad to help me progress, even though it does make me look soft lol. My ipod broke today so my concentration was a bit off because I'm use to having to listen to just music and not people's conversations. I didn't have as good a workout I wanted so I just have to look forward to tomorrow.

I felt really comfortable with my deadlifts at a lower weight and I got my bro to show me how to do it properly. I think I'll start off lower then what I'm able to, just to get use to it. I'll go for 295 next week for leg press. Chin ups really frustrated me alot so I really pushed myself when I was doing the twists to make up for it. I'll probably do lat pulldowns next time to switch things up.

I'm pretty satisfied with my half year pics. I'm very proud of myself for being committed for 6 months straight because I always found a stupid excuse in the past to stop working out. The longest streak I've been was from end of Aug to end of Nov, so I'm happy I could double that streak. I think I've made some good gains and have learned alot, but I understand I have a long way to go to be where I wanna be. I took some flexing pics for fun and I think they look decent lol. My chest is a little small but it'll grow with time.

I feel stronger then ever and feel like I'm in the best shape of my life so that is a big positive. I love taking these pics because it's a big confidence booster and makes me want to continue and get even bigger and stronger. Thank you everyone who has took an interest in my log, I'm looking forward to see what I can achieve in the next six months :D

Thanks alot guys for your comments. Texas, I hope I didn't get big shoulders by having improper form on my bench press. Is that even possible lol? and niro, my legs are pretty big, i think 210 squats are pretty good for a guy thats basically just starting off. Should i flex the leg, keep it bent, or keep it straight?

I'm gonna post some numbers of what I did in the beginning and what I'm doing now because I'm bored lol:

DB Bench = 3x6 - 45lbs 12 weeks ago, now 4x6 - 60lbs

Incline DB Press = 3x6 - 45lbs 12 weeks ago, now 4x6 - 55lbs

DB Curls = 3x6 - 30lbs 12 weeks ago, now 1x6,2x4 - 40lbs

Goblet Squat = 3x20 42.5lbs 12 weeks ago, now 3x5 - 210lbs normal squats

Bench Press = 3x3 130lbs 1 month ago, now 3x3 - 155lbs

Incline Bench = 3x3 130lbs 1 month ago, now 3x3 - 150lbs

Most of these values were from not too long ago. If I had values from when I first started I'm pretty sure I would've been able to bench only around 100 or something lol

I think I can do it with a spotter. Incline was really good, maybe I'll increase to 60 next week. I remember when i first started this routine I was struggling with 50lb incline, so that gave me an extra boost today. Plus I wore this underarmour shirt for the first time and I felt/looked pretty jacked so that made me feel even better lol. Shoulder press was really good also, as well as skull crushers.

At least I know what my 1rm is now lol. So that kinda took a little bit of energy out of me and I needed some help with a couple reps. Decline really screwed my quads and calfs for some reason.

I wasn't suppose to workout today but I figured this is my last week before I go on vacation and I won't be back in the gym until mid sept. My deads felt really really good today. I raised leg press from 375 to 395 and felt good during the first set. I went up to 9 on the 2nd set and really wanted to get 10 so I pushed really hard and tensed up my neck. There was some pretty bad pain for a couple mins and then it went away, but I decided to call it a day since I already have neck problems. Plus I wanted to be good for tomorrows incline :)

I did nothing all day and was really bored so I went for a run. Bad idea though. My neck felt like shit, it was very tense. I had to walk for a good 5 min or more and I finished in 20+ min. I'm gonna put some tiger alm on it and maybe take some advil. Hopefully it will be good by tomorrow.

I set some goals today, trying to be realistic. I hope to gain at least 35lbs, hopefully more, in my main lifts by then end of April (8 months).

Squat-3x5-220 - 255
Bench-3x3-165 - 200
Deadlift-3x5-205 - 240
Incline-3x3-150 - 185

I think I can get at least 50 in my deads and squats because I'm still getting use to the exercise, that's why they're a little low. We'll see what happens :)

I really liked the exercises today, I really felt it working. You don't even have enough time to think about the pain because your trying to go fast to get to the next exercise lol. So it was good, got the adrenaline pumping. That pretty much carried me through the rest of the workout, so it was a good day.

I'm probably going to do the incline day on Monday and the deadlift day on Wedsnesday instead of the other way around because I'm going to sign up at the school gym Weds so I can do my deads there and just do supersets on Monday. Squat day will be Friday still.

You are making very nice progress. I dunno if you have crunched the numbers, but 177.6-166.8=10.8lbs 10.8/(39/4)=1.10lbs of muscle per month. You don't look like you have put on any body fat.

My Squats were really good today. I think I could increase to 240 next time but ill just go to 235 to be safe. Hamstring curls were really really good too because I remember when I did them before I went on vacation I struggled with 90lbs. Now I can do 100 relatively easily. The only thing I struggled on was hammer curls. Maybe because I went up in bent rows? Leg raises I'm looking replace because I keep on slipping on the bar.

Pretty good day today, happy I didnt hurt my neck lol

Shit day, I had a bad sleep and my confidence was low, so I didn't make the 3rd rep on my incline. And even worse, no one was spotting me so it fell on my chest, and even worse this was in front of the ellipticals and shit where the girls were lol so that made me feel like shit so the rest of the routine wasn't great. I know I should ask for a spot but I just don't like bothering people.

I'm just looking forward to the end of the next 4 weeks; christmas, end of exams and my 1yr pics :) lol. just gotta stay confident and positive. I'll most likely switch up my routine for the new yr.

My 1 year weigh in, almost lol. I did it a bit earlier because of exams. I do notice some difference despite the differences in camera angles, not alot for a year. But to look at it positively, I didn't start seriously until mid-May. This was definitely more of a learning year for me and I'm happy I incorporated working out into my life faithfully for a full year. I know I'll learn even more this next year and hopefully I'll be noticeably stronger by the end of next year. I gained around 15lbs, but I think alot of it was fat the last few weeks. I will start a new routine TBD, starting January.

Okay day today. I can tell I'm starting to get sick because my throat hurts, my head is started to get stuffy and my body is starting to ache, and I'm losing my appetite. I was able to make some decent lifts with bench. I forgot if I used the 45 or 51lb bar, but regardless I'm going to go for 125 lbs next week. Dips were really hard for me actually lol. First time EVER doing it suprisingly. It would be useful for me to tape it because I wasn't sure if I was leaning forward too much or swaying e.t.c. For facepulls I also forgot how much weight I did lol. I'm suppose to go in again tomorrow, but I don't know how I'll feel. We'll see what happens.

I surprisingly felt great today. Last night I had a slight fever and my body really ached so I didn't think I'd be able to get in a workout today. I did though and I felt relatively strong actually. Deadlifts were great, I'll go up another 10lbs or so next week. Rows were a little awkward for me because I haven't done them since I started last year. Good day overall.

Good day, squats were a little tough so I don't know if I should increase or not. I don't want to force more weight and lose form like I did last semester. Good mornings were pretty good, a little strange since I've never done them before. Overall good day, bench tomorrow.

I forgot it was 2 x 5, not 2 x 3 for bench so i only did 3 reps lol. Regardless, they were pretty easy so I'm gonna go for 135 next week. Military Press was really easy so I'll try 100 next week. Face pulls were good but I was a bit unbalanced.

I thought I did 155 instead of 160 last week for squats so I didnt increase this week (N). Good Mornings again didn't know how much I did last week so I ended up doing less. This is what happens when you rely on your ipod too much lol. Decent day overall.

Again I forgot how much I did the previous week so I did the same amount instead of increasing. I'm such an idiot. Military was kind of difficult, I'm not sure if I am going to increase or go for a few more reps next week. Dips I thought I could do 2x10 but I was wrong lol. Face pulls easy, 85lbs next week.

Leg Press 1 x 10,1x8 - 310lbs

Squats felt really good today, the only thing I noticed is that the bar seemed to go on one side more. I know my body and hands are centred on the bar correctly, I think it might be something with my back. I'm pretty sure I'm not doing good mornings correctly because I feel it alot in my tailbone area, so I have to figure that out. Leg press good, 320 next week.

Today I did dips first because the benches were taken and I was in a rush. I did bench second and I struggled a bit. It might be because I did dips first, i unno.

Amazing day for deadlifts today. I felt really strong and most importantly, confident. Lat pulldown was a bit iffy, couple reps I didn't have really get a full range of motion, but w.e I'll get it good next week. First set of row was perfect but the second was a little shaky.

Leg Press 1 x 10,1x8 - 320lbs

Squats were really good today, I want to increase to 185 but I don't wanna risk throwing off my form so I'm still undecided. I've noticed my shoulders hurt ALOT when doing squats and I think it could be due to having a close grip on the bar (thumbs on rings) so I'll try a wider grip next week. Good mornings felt really good compared to last week, increase next time. Leg press also good, 330-340 next week.

Bench was really good today, I didn't make the 6th rep completely cuz my spotter thought I wasnt gonna make it apparently. Military press I felt good the 1st set but the 2nd I don't think I wouldve been able to make the last rep. Dips I struggled with the 2nd set, barely made the 8th, felt like form was a bit off. Face pulls I feel like I could do alot more. It's more of a balance issue. Pretty good day overall.

Deadlifts were beautiful today lol. They've gone from being my least confident to most confident exercise now. Possibly 261 next week? I know pretty much everyone on this site benches that amount lol, but still, thats alot for me :) Lat pulldowns were a bit better this week. The first set it felt like I could do at least 10, but the second set I struggle for some reason, but still it was better than last week so thats good. Rows were much better this week also, I tried tucking my elbows into my body a bit more because they were wider last week and it helped, so increase next week. Decline I'll try 45. Great day today.

Squats were pretty good today. I struggled a bit but I'm pretty sure I can make 185 next week. Squat walkout still bothers me but I think I'm getting use to the uncomfortableness. My shoulders felt better today too. Goodmornings I'm also getting use to, 160 next week. I did leg press on one machine and it was really easy, I probably could've gotten up to 360-380.

I'll most likely try for 190 next week. Walkouts made my back feel really weird today, I donno what it was so I only did 1 set.

Row 2 x 6 - 165lbs

Decline Situps 2 x 12 - 45lbs

Deadlifts I used these stupid weights that had handles, so they were not a complete circle. On my 2nd rep they locked and i had to get off and reset it and did 2 sets right after, kinda killed my momentum... my fault though. I switched to circular weights next set and was able to get full 5 reps in, although I was a little shaky at the end. Nevertheless I will attempt 270 next week. Chinups I was really really scared to do, I haven't done them since my first days in the gym back in may/june. Back then I did palms facing towards each other, now I did palms facing me. I was really suprised they were really easy, BUT the 2nd set was really hard..only got in 4 lol. I think it could be I didn't rest enough though. Row was good also, try 170 next week.

Leg Press 1x8 - 370lbs, 1x8 - 380

Frustrating day today. Squats are bothering me more and more now, I think it might have to do with my back being not having enough muscle to pad the weight, so it's putting alot of pressure on my bones. So yea gonna have to do something about that. Walkout was really uncomfortable. Goodmornings, friend said was improper form so I think I straightened that out for next week. Leg press was on the easier machine.

Looking at my squat I'm pretty happy with the depth I have. It's the pressure on my back that's the biggest problem and it's effecting other parts of my form as well.

Squats are really frustrating for me right now because I know I can do more cuz I have confidence in my leg strengths, it's just my back (more of an upper issue) that is frustrating me and bringing down my confidence. Hypers good, could probably hold some weight next week. Curls i can also increase. I have bench tomorrow which I am much more confident in than squats so hopefully that'll get my confidence back up.
