Default Dezolate\'s Newbie Training/Diet Journal *** Comments and Feedback Very Welcome ***

I'm really excited about posting my training/diet journal. I think I've come a long way ever since I first stumbled on this site less than 2 months ago.

I'm 6'1'', around 240lbs right now. I was always pretty big. I basicly lost the worse of my babyfat 5 years ago.(not coincidentally when I started dating my girlfriend...we're now living common-law).

I've got a really big frame. Now my nagging problem is the spare tire. My goal is to just look really good. I want to bulk up on the upper body, and lose the tire, all at the same time if possible.

This is more or less my training split :

Mondays : back, abs

Tuesdays : chest, shoulders(delts, traps)

Wednesdays : legs, cardio

Thursday : biceps, forearms

Fridays : chest, shoulders or day off, depends on recovery

Sat : off, cardio

Sun : biceps, forearms, or day off


-------------------------

Been doing this split for the last little while. I go light on legs since I don't want them to bulk too much, and they're nice enough from my earlier years of jogging.

I really go hard on the upper body, and I usually can exercise my chest and shoulders twice per week, the same for my forearms and biceps. I've had great gains doing this.

Keep your desire strong which will haul you through the times when you want to take a looooong break.

I was refered to this site not too long ago myself and I've learned more than I thought I would. (Former Personal Trainer)

Look under the different tabs and you will be flooded with information

Thanks ABC

good luck!

Yesterday(sunday) I did the 8 weeks to bigger biceps program, except I subsituted the machine animal curls with regular barbel animal curls, followed by normal barbel curls with an ez bar(the curved bar).


This morning I did some HIT cardio on stairs. Tonight I'll be doing my back and my abs. It'll be around 10 hours between the cardio and the workout.

This will be my diet this week(I'm sticking to it 100%, just did the groceries for it last night)

Meal 1 : half cup oatmeal with splenda, 3 boiled egg whites, half serving protein shake(20 g protein), creatine

Meal 2 : salmon filet with 1 serving 0% fat yogurt

Meal 3 : skinless chicken breast with salad

Meal 4(pre workout) : half cup oatmeal with protein shake

Meal 5(post) : protein shake, malto, dext, gluta, creatine, multi vitamine, glucosamine with a salad 30 mins after the shake

Meal 6 : chicken breast or sole fillets(both grilled)

Meal 7 : 1 serving cottage cheese

----------

Is this any good to keep my gains and lose body fat?

I also usually eat another salad with meal 6.(1 of my shelves in my fridge is taken up only by greens)

I was also thinking of maybe substituting one of the meals with brown bread and tuna.

Tonight's workout :

Barbell Rows : 12, 10, 8, (failure) 7

Deadlifts : 10, 8, 6, (failure) 6

Incline Bench Isolation Rows : 10, 8, 6, (failure) 5
(these felt great...really felt the burn in the rhombs)

Some pathetic attempts at pullups and chinups : I was able to do a couple of chinups....was too fatigued to do more. So I concentrated on the negatives of the pullups

Good Mornings : 10, 8, 6

Chest and shoulders, money time. I foregoed my cardio this morning since I always really give it everything I've got during this workout :

(at the end of my reps, I hold my arms straight for 5 secs before racking up)

Incline Benchpress : 8, 6, 6, (drop 10 pounds) 6

Add 10 pounds :

Flat Benchpress : 8, 6, (drop 10) 6, (drop 5) 6

Dumbbell Flys(pain really sets in) : 6, 6, (drop 5) 6, (drop 5) 6

I was going to do my shoulders too...but my body failed me. I didn't feel like doing a half hearted attempt at my delts....I'll have to revise my training split.


Any suggestions? I can work up to 5-6 times per week. And I'd like to do chest and biceps twice per week.(just for the next 3 weeks only though)

I added 10 pounds from the last time I did my chest. Might be why I was so fatigued.
