Default Budman\'s First Training Journal

I've decided to put up my training sessions online so people can judge me. I've found criticism is the best motivation. Anyways, I've been training off and on for about 10 months, but I started serious about a month ago. Here are my stats:
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 152 lbs.
Upper arms: 14.75"
Forearms: 12"
Chest/Back: 41"
Upper legs: 22"
Calves: 14"
Bench press: 230 lbs.
Deadlift: 250 lbs.
Clean and press: 135 lbs.

Currently I'm bulking. Fortunately, I'm pretty ectomorphic, so I just eat and eat, whatever I please, without gaining any fat. Unfortunately, it's been pretty difficult to put on muscle lately.

Anyway, here's how my last workout went:

Incline dumbbell curls: 4 sets of 8,6,4,4 reps
Preacher bench dumbbell curls: Same
Standing dumbbell curls: 4 sets of 10,8,6,4 reps
Concentration curls: 5 sets of 10 reps

Close-grip bench presses: 4 sets of 8,6,4,4 reps
Dumbbell kickbacks: 4 sets of 10,8,6,6 reps
One-handed dumbbell extensions: 4 sets of 8,6,4,4 reps

Awesome bro. Can't wait to follow you on your path to training excellence. I'm starting mine soon as well. It looks as though we have pretty much the same attributes except for I gain fat easily. I just gained 15 pounds on my last bulk and I am cuttin' down for summer now. I am carrying around some of that winter jacket (fat) and need to seriously lean up before I start my next bulk. So I look forward to checkin' back in on your journal to see how your doing it. Good luck my friend!!

Thanks a lot dude.

Well, here's today's workout. I am really pressed for time today, and everything is sore but shoulders, so:

Clean and press: 4 sets of 8,6,4,6 reps (stripped last set)
Behind-neck military press: 4 sets of 8,6,4,4 reps
Upright rows: Same
Lateral raises: 4 sets of 10 reps

Hmm, I guess I'll do traps later.

How do you like doing the clean and press? I have never done them on a regular basis and I am curious as to what benefits you receive from them?

They are awesome for gaining strength and mass in general. As soon as I started doing compound exercises (deadlift, clean and press...), I grew in all other body parts as well. Those types of exercises increase natural testosterone levels, kind of like a natural steroid.
