Default Pyro's Physique

Hello and thanks for checking out my journal.

I have never made one of these before so stick with me until I get the hang of it.

Some information on me:
26yo, 174lbs, around 10%bf (will check with BIA tonight)
PhD student at Dartmouth Medical School, Biochemistry

I got married about 5weeks ago and have been abroad on honeymoon. This journal marks my return to the gym after not lifting and eating whatever was available overseas. I managed to only loose about 8lbs but I deff lost definition and some size.

Yesterday was my first workout in the gym and went like this:

Dumbbell shoulder press: 35lbs/10, 45lbs/10, 50lbs/10
Standing barbell curls: 45lbs/12, 65lbs/10, 85lbs/6
Incline barbell press: 45lbs/10, 60lbs/10, 70lbs/8
One arm bent over rows: 50lbs/10, 60lbs/10, 70lbs/10
Lat pulldowns: 80lbs/12, 100lbs/10, 100lbs/8
Tricep pulldowns: 60lbs/12, 90lbs/10, 120lbs/10

I have started loading creatine and am taking a multi-vitamin as well as glutamine 2xdaily, Xtend before workout, whey protein 2xdaily

It felt great to be back in the gym, the sights, the smells, and the feeling of iron on your fingers and muscles twitching with effort was amazing! That being said I was a little disappointed in my weights as I was stronger 5weeks ago but I do realize this is normal and will hopefully be back to my old self with a few weeks of consistent lifting. I will have diet details next week after I have the weekend to do some food shopping and actually have time to cook!

My goals for the future are:
Compete in my first contest next year
Finish my PhD
Get into Medical School

More immediate goals:
Add significant size over the next 6months
Get my strength up to where it was
Get my next paper out

Today was cardio day. Started with some stretching and then went on to 6min warm up on the elliptical. Decided to try Tabata intervals. Went 20sec all out followed by 10sec at a moderate pace. Repeated 8 times for a total of 4min. This really got the heart rate up and the sweat was pouring. Cool down for 5min and then hit abs

Thanks man, When I started lifting I couldn't do one good pullup, I just kept upping my numbers until I could do 10 sets of 10 with BW and then started adding weight. That was actually 5 sets of 5 with about 30sec rest in between. I really felt that the next day though!
