Default Novice BBer\'s Journal. Comments / Advice Welcome!


Hey Everyone!
I have been lurking this site for about a month now. I have read a lot and finally started working out this week.

I am making a journal to learn from all the experts here and to help keep myself motivated. (i get very lonely)

My goal is simple: Put on MASS!! i am very skinny and hope to get to a decent size by January or February and then cut for the summer!

Age: 18
Hieght: 6'2"
Weight: 159.5 LB
Rt Bicep: 12 3/4
Lt Bicep: 12 1/4
Forearms: 11

I am not sure how to measure other places. If anyone has info on that it would be great.

This is my split. I made it myself so if it looks bad tell me please.

Sunday-Off
Monday-Chest/Tris
Tuesday-Off
Wednesday-Bicep/Forearms
Thursday-Off
Friday-Legs/Abs
Saturday-Back/Traps/Delts

Welcome to ABC... ^ split looks okay except you left out legs [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] You should post your bulking diet as well.

You're split looks alright but Saturday looks a little hectic. You if can handle it go for it.

I don't really have a set split but when I did use one it was:

Monday: Back and Triceps
Tuesday: Legs and Calves
Wednesday: Off
Thursday: Chest, Biceps and Forearms
Friday: Deltoids and Traps
Saturday: Off
Sunday: Off

It worked really well for me.

Good Luck on the Journal. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

LCN WELCOMES YOU

it looks pretty good....however, if you're completely new, you could use the standard: chest/shoulders/tris....back/bis.....legs/abs...either way, good luck and go get it! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

oh yeah...btw....you're going to have to eat, and eat, and eat, and eat!....eating a bulk diet (if you've never done it before) is NOT easy for thin people (at least not at first)....you really need to read the nutrition tab and figure out how many calories a day you're going to need (carbs, protein, efa's, etc)...then you can figure out how you'll acheive your goal amount daily..ie...what to eat and when to eat it.

Thanks for all the Tips. I may change around my split some, either way it will be pretty hectic, i am going to try and arrange it around when i work which can change every week.

I know my diet will be hard work. I will post it soon.
While Iím talking about my diet, I am finding it hard to keep to my diet, I donít like waking up and drinking shakes and I have a sweet tooth but ill just have to suck it up!

Anyway I worked out Monday and Wednesday this week. I was not very happy with how they went. I didnít have the energy/strength to last many sets.

On my chest/triceps day my arms and shoulders gave out before I even felt anything in my chest. I did however have good DOMS in my shoulders, triceps, and parts of my back despite the pitifully amount of weight I lifted. At one point I could only lift 5 pounds like 4 times with my left tricep (very embarrassing, but thatís why im here)

On my bicep/forearm day, I still didnít get as many sets in as I should but I think it went better. I was running out of time so I had to hurry up and couldnít do it as well as I wanted too.

I got a cold Tuesday, which I think, contributed to my tiredness this week. Iím not going to do my workout today. I am just about to get over my cold and I am very tired. My work schedule is going to work out better next week. Hopefully my workouts will work out better.

here's something that helped me CONSIDERABLY....meal replacement shakes (homemade of course!)....40gm whey protein powder, 1 whole egg, 3 egg whites, 1 cup of oatmeal (uncooked for me, cooked if you prefer), water (amount desired)...blend and presto....500+ calorie MRP....put it in a large cup with top and take it anywhere....personally, i take two with me to work everyday so i can eat "right" (as opposed to crap from a snack machine) every 2-3 hours....it's made a huge difference in my mass gains and strength gains.

I eat one simillar to that twice a day. its protien powder, oatmeal, and peanut butter. about 500-700 cals depending on how much i put in.
i thought eating raw eggs was bad? and i also thought that the protien will go bad or something if you leave it in a drink for to long.... how long does it last? that could really change my diet if it lasts a while. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
