Default OldSchool88\'s Journal

Ok, I've been reading alot of the great articles here on ABC, and I've also been talking to some medical professionals personally, and I've decided I'm gonna start a "guinea pig" journal on here.

Let me first tell you a little bit about my self, I'm a 15, 5'9 135 pound skinny guy. I've never been lifting weights seriously until now.

I'm going to begin a bulk following the bulking workout principles here on ABC. I'm also going to supplement correctly with ZMA, Multi-vitamin, EFA's, and Whey protein.

That said, I'm NOT going to follow any set p/c/f ratios. I'm ONLY going to keep track of my Calorie and Protein intake. This DOESN'T mean I will throw all caution to the wind and eat junk all the time, I will eat high protein foods, even if they are fatty or high in carbs.
That is my goal: High-protein foods, no matter if they contain high fat or carbs. I will still space out my meals so that I eat 7-8 times a day so my body can actually USE the food I'm eating.

My starting goals are 4000 calories a day, and 150+ grams protein. I will reach these goals every day, no matter how much fat or carbs I eat.

I've decided to do this wild transformation because I'm tired of being a "skinny guy" I want to gain as much muscle as fast as I can. I will give the workouts my maximum effort, training as intense as I possibly can. I will destroy my body at each workout and then sleep 10 hours a night to let it recover.

I also have decided to do this because I know God can help me do anything!

If I start gaining too much fat, I will reasess my goals and then, only then, will I start using ratios and clean bulking.

Once I get to my target weight in muscle, somewhere between 180-200, then I will cut down my excess fat.

Lol, forgot to post that, here it is:

Day 1: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Day 2: Off
Day 3: Back, Biceps, Forearms
Day 4: Quads, Hamstrings, Calves
Day 5: Off

I would like comments, as I will be posting updates to my gains whenever I can, but I won't be able to post my workouts everyday because I'll be too busy.

Ok, sorry for not posting for a while, I had personal distractions and such and wasn't able to start working out. But all that's over so now I finally start. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I do all my workouts in my garage every morning after breakfast and after my workouts I drink my PWO shake and take a shower.

I'm new to this workout-posting thing so I'll try my best.

RP=Rest pause, S=Strip

Day #1 7/26/04
135 Pounds
Chest/Shoulders/Triceps

Decline Bench
6-8-8-RP-4-S-6-RP-4
Flat Dumbbell Flys
12

Incline Bench
6-8-8-RP-4
Incline Dumbbell Flys
12

Dumbbell Shulder Presses
8-8-8-8

Side Lateral Raises
8-S-10-S-12
8-S-10

Behind The Back Dips
10-10-8-6-6

I started pretty light as this was my first "real" workout. I did alot of damage to my chest and triceps and felt the pain right away but my shoulders didn't get burned today at all, so maybe I'll feel some DOMS tomorrow.

I'm currently eating 3600 calories a day and I'll see if I start gaining weight with that.

Day #8 8/2/04
135 Pounds
Chest/Shoulders/Triceps

I'm going to try a new format for posting my sets; repsXweight

Decline Bench
6x70, 8x70, 8x70, 6x60
Dumbbell Flys
12x15

Incline Bench
6x60, 8x60, 8x60, 6x50
Dumbell Flys
12x15

Dumbbell Shoulder Presses
8x10, 8x15, 4x20, 5x15, 6x10

Side Lateral Raises
8x20, 10x15, 12x10
8x20, 10x15

Tricep Dips (Bodyweight exercise this time)
10, 10, 8, 6, 6

My delts were fryed after this workout, and I did alot of damage to my shoulders also. I'm starting to see some major development in my tri's, and my pecs are also developing well. My biceps still seem stuck so I'm going to try some new shocking methods next time I work them.

Day #9 8/03/04
135 Pounds
Forearms

Ok, I took forearms from the back/biceps day and put them here as I am now going to be following the "8 weeks to bigger forearms" routine.

Reverse Barbell Curls
10x30
Hammer Curls
10x15

Reverse Barbell Curls
8x30
Hammer Curls
8x15

Reverse Barbell Curls
10x30
Hammer Curls
10x15

Reverse Barbell Curls
8x30
Hammer Curls
8x15

A solid workout, basically the same routine all the way through. I think that if I get some size on my forearms, my biceps will directly benefit due to the heavier weights I will be able to control.

Day #10 8/04/04
136 Pounds
Biceps

Ok, biceps today:

Concentration Curls
8x20, 10x15, 12x10

Barbell Curls
10x30, 8x30, 6x30

Lying Dumbbell Curls
12x10, 10x10

An ok workout, I still feel as though I am hindering my bicep workouts by reaching failure due to my small forearms. I will also be going back to school in two weeks so I'm trying to make up a new plan for my 3600-calorie eating schedule.
