    New to working out; first day could have gone better, but you learn from your mistakes. I definitely need more calorie intake pre-workout. Felt pretty shaky afterward.

    Currently: 6'0" 165 lbs.
    Plan: workout 4 days/week
    Goal: 185 lbs. by the end of December
    Diet: Nothing is really going to change here; I eat pretty good and I eat a lot. Just need to add in a calorie-packed shake before my morning workout.

    Today:
    15 minutes moderately heavy cardio (9 mph) - I think I'll tone this down a bit; maybe 10 min. at 8 mph.

    Squats:
    70 x 5
    70 x 5
    90 x 5
    90 x 5
    120 x 5

    Deadlifts:
    135 x 5
    135 x 5
    160 x 5
    160 x 5
    205 x 5

    Leg Raises:
    5 sets of 10 reps each (1 minute break between sets)

    Incline Sit-ups:
    BW only. 3 sets of 10 reps each (1 minute break between sets)

    Standing calf raises:
    140 x 10
    160 x 10
    160 x 10
    160 x 10
    200 x 10


    I'm really worn out already but I suppose that's just part of starting up a workout. I'm still getting a hang on how much weight I should use, but I guess I'll find a good settling point soon.

    Today was much better. Ate a ton of calories before workout and felt much more comfortable.

    40 x 5
    40 x 5
    35 x 5
    35 x 5
    35 x 5 >> Lowered the weight as I began to struggle with the 40s; good or bad thing to do?

    Seated dumbbell shoulder press:
    35 x 5
    35 x 5
    35 x 5
    40 x 5

    Bicep cable curls:

    I can't remember the exact weights because I didn't write it at the gym but I think most of them are accurate.
