Hi all, I thought about making this an "official" thread on here but who the hell am I to make anything official? Anywho, the object of this thread is to discuss working out, post your workouts, goals, pictures, nutritional habits...etc. etc. I also encourage you to post your supplements and any questions you may have about supplements, working out, nutrition...etc. etc. part deux. I'm not an expert and am sure that there are a lot more knowledgeable people on here that know a lot more about working out, nutrition, supplements and routines than I but I am more than willing to help and encourage. With that said...LET THE WORKOUT THREAD BEGIN!!! Here goes my workout/nutrition log. I'll try to update it everyday. It's a great idea to do this as it will help you hold yourselves accountable...plus everyone else can give you crap if you start to slack or eat like crap. haha Monday 3-30 Chest, back and abs Started 13:20 End 15:10 Close grip push-ups 3sets of12 Bent over double DB row 20lbs-12reps, 30-10, 50-8 Wide push-ups 3 sets of 12 DB Pullovers 30lbs-12, 30-10, 35-10 Inc DB press 30-12, 35-10, 35-10 Bent over back flies 25-12, 25-10, 25-10 Resistance band anatomical raises Green-12, Black-10, Red-10 Seated row w/bands Red-12, Blue-12, Black-12 Decline flies w/supernation (turning the dumbbells in to work the lower chest more) 15-12, 20-10, 20-10 Superset with DB Row DB Row 32-12, 50-10, 50-10 Abs reverse crunches 3-20, crunches 3-20, bicycle kicks 3-100 Monday's intake: Meal 1-Protein shake 46grams with water and flaxseed.(I always have my protein with water) NO Shotgun Meal 2 same as first meal post workout. Meal 3-Half a turkey, roast beef and lean ham sandwich with lettuce, tomato, oil and vinegar. Meal 4- same as meal two. Meal 5- Banana Meal 6-Protein shake with flaxseed. I use protein a lot whenever I don't have much food at home, which is the case this week. It helps substitute a meal. Tuesday 3-31 Biceps, triceps and shoulders Straight bar curls 40-12, 50-10, 50-10 Bench dips using body weight 3-12 Shoulder press 15-12, 25-10, 35-8 Double standing DB curls 20-12, 25-10, 30-8 Front raises 15-12, 20-10, 20-10 EZ curl bar curls 40-12, 50-10, 60-8 French press 20-12, 30-10, 40-10 Side lat DB raises 15-12, 15-10, 15-8 Incline DB hammer curls 20-12 double, 20-10single, 20-8single DB kickbacks 20-12, 25-10, 30-10 Straight bar raises (I can't for the life of me remember the actual name of this exercise. It works your traps/front delts. You grab the bar in a close grip form and pull it up where it's even with your shoulders as your elbows flare out. Rep to anyone that can remind my stupid ass the name of this exercise. It's freakin' killing me that I forgot.) 20-12, 30-10, 40-10 Concentration curls 15-12, 20-10, 20-10 Single overhead french press? (Yet another exercise I can't remember the name of. It's where you have the dumbbell in your hand and your arm is bent at a ninety degree angle behind your head. It's kind of like a kickback of sorts.) 15-12, 15-10, 15-10 DB shrugs 50-12, 50-10, 50-10 I did these really slowly because 50lbs. is not enough for me. I used to do these at the gym with an olympic bar and 225lbs. When done slowly it tends to work you more. It's all that I can do for now until I bust out my SelectTech's and start using those. Tuesday intake: Meal 1-Protein shake with flaxseed and NO Shotgun. Meal 2-Protein shake with flaxseed. Meal 3-About a fourth to half a cup of brown rice with red beans and four small chicken breast medallions. Meal 4-Same as meal three but with black beans. Meal 5- A HUGE spinach salad with less than half a cup of reduced fat feta cheese and extra virgin olive oil. Meal 6-Protein shake. I do my best to pre-plan my meals and though I have not had a full days worth of meals I know that this is exactly what I will be eating for the rest of the day. Overall I had two good workouts. At the end of today's I wish I would have done more as far as more weight but I just started working out regularly on Monday, after an inconsistent six to seven months of working out sporadically. My starting weight is 219.4. It seems kind of high to me in a number way but as far as losing inches off my waist I have already gone down another notch since I REALLY starting concentrating on my eating again at the beginning of the year. I'm a size 34/35 now and am on the second to last notch of my belt.
