And that is all about to change. I am 5 ft 10 inches, 185 lb, & 18 years old. It's time for a recomposition.

Workout days: 2300 Calories
Non-workout days: 2000 Calories

Conditioning: Either pushing a vehicle or dragging a rock on an old plastic sled.

My goals for the next 6 months are to get a 600 total and learn what type of training works for me.

Those are attainable goals, if you stay consistent there is no reason you shouldn't be able to hit or exceed them.

my advice.

Dont get OCD. Run a diet to a T. Run a program to a T. and do nothing else. get sleep, dont be stressed.

just do work and you will get results.

Here's todays conditioning (6/19/10)

Made myself a little sled today. I wish I would've took a picture of this thing. It was so ghetto. I found my baby sled that I used to use when it snowed put two holes in it for the rope. Tied the rope around my belt (like belt for jeans lol) hooked it up like a harness I suppose and put this huge ass rock from my neighbor's yard on it. Since I couldn't even pick it up, my bet is it weighs 150 lbs. Somehow managed to scoot that thing on the sled and got my ass going. Dragged that for 5 minutes, took 2 small breathers...than found out I had to get the fricken rock back to my neighbors yard...So that took about an additional 4 minutes, lol. Now the street has these orange skid marks from the sled. And theres a huge hole in the sled now. My guess is the sled doesn't make it the next workout.

All in all, had a great time out there busting my ass. But I need to look around my garage for shit to use. I might bust out the wheel barrel if I can't figure anything to use as a sled.

Today's Workout (6/23/10)

Conventional Deadlift 5x185, 5x185
Pull thru 11x60, 8x40
Bent Over Row 4x115, 11x115
Rev Grip narrow grip pulldowns 6x105, 6x105
Alternating DB Curls 8x27.5, 12x27.5

When I was doing Rev Grip narrow grib pulldowns my forearms started to flare up so I am def. not going to do those anymore. All in all, good workout.

After reading IA's 'How to train yourself' article... I feel as if this would be the best way to spend 24 months training.

I just really realized it today I never really set my mind to anything. So I had to make a decision.

I stopped giving a shit and my opinions are gone. I am just going to do this. No questions asked. I've set my mind to it and there's nothing going to change it. No Dave the bodybuilder guy is going to set me up with a routine...No beer and cheesecake with the friends late at night. No staying up til 4 am watching Fifa World Cup. I can still hang out with friends. No second guessing on anything. I'll get my protein in. I'll get my sleep. I'll handle my stress. I am following this to a T. I am also going to try to find a job so my mom stops bickering at me everyday. This is what my routine will be until June 23rd. I will enjoy this & I'll reap the rewards.

Mon
Bench Press or Dips 2 x 8-12
Bent Row or Pull-up 2 x 8-12
Wed
Military or Dumbell Press 2 x 8-12
Squat 2 x 8-12
Fri
Stiff Leged Deadlift 2 x 8-12
Weighted Abs 2 x 10

Awesome you had that realization.

But you may want to change your routine, to a proven routine. You are benching, bentrowing, squatting and SLDLing in the same workout, doing each of those 3x a week. Not very logical.

Follow SPBR to a T.

Edit: Ahh, I wrote it wrong. I meant to say that I did that workload in 3 workouts per week. So one day would be Bench + Bentrow, next day Mili + Squat, next day SLD'S Weights Abs. It's a hardgainer routine.

Oh yeah. That is totally fine.


It just made it sound like you were doing that workout, three days a week.

Go for it! Good luck.

try doing the shoulder dislocations (shoulder roll) with a skipping rope, itll feel nicer cuz it has a little give when youre at the tighter spots
