I started to Gym in Feb 2005. Click emoticon to see what I looked like before: Latest pic: May 2005 My aim: To bulk up, emphasis on upper body. I also want to lower my body fat percentage. Currently concentrating on bulking. Feel free to post any comments / tips / critisism etc. Monday 23rd May 2005 Chest & Triceps Warm up: Major muscle group streches. 10 minute session kicking/punching a punch bag. Beats the treadmill I say. Incline Dumb Bell Bench Press. Setting: 40 degrees Weights: 2 x 20kg Dumb Bells 8-7-6-4-4 Comment: Didn't pull off 8-8-8 due to forearm hurting, so I did 2 extra sets to failure. Not bad for an incline anyway with the 20kgs, forearm was limiting factor. Chest Dips. Setting: Close Grip 8-8-7 Comment: Gave up too quickly on the last set, really worked both the chest and triceps though. Defo trying for 8-8-8 next time. Pull Ups Setting: Full Range 10-9-5 Crap last set.. I didn't rest enough before the last set as some chubby dude was dying to use the bar so I was knocked out after 5 reps. Probably didn't rest enough after chest dips too actually. I should hit 10-10-10 really. Arm Extension Weight: 90lbs 10-6(95lbs)-6 The 1st set seemed too easy, so I upped the weight but then my forearm was limiting my power. 2nd and 3rd sets were done to failure. Dissapointing. I killed this machine the last time round. Cable Tricep Pull Down Weight: 80lbs 10-10-10 No problem. Kept the weight low so not to over-strain my forearm. Should be doing 100lbs on this usually. Summary: Good workout. Maybe need to add 1/2 extra exercises for the Chest/Tricep day including flat DB bench press and the barbell bench press << IMPORTANT. Left Forearm was limiting most of my weights. Noel suggested I build up forearm strength my doing forearm curls and using the opposite side i.e. palm facing down when doing bicep curls etc. Never thought of this before so I shall try. WEIGHT AFTER SESSION: 168 lbs (with no extra weight, didn't realise shoes alone weigh 2lbs!) Nutrition: Breakfast: Scrambled Egg, 3 x Toast, Tea. Lunch: Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich Pre-Gym: Creatine, 500 ml Water Post-Gym: Double Protein Shake Dinner: Chicken Jalfrezi & Egg Fried Rice. J20. Night: 1 litre water. Apple. Banana. Comments: EAT MORE U PUSSY!! More water too.
