    Just coming back from my week off....(8 weeks on 1 week off)

    Going to see wher I can get myself. (before I took last week off my left arm right at the elbow was hurting me like I pulled something, hoping things are better by the time i get to arms this friday)


    Info about me

    Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 230 lbs

    Got a good amount of fat on me (I can definitely be a lot leaner but I don't look fat, if that makes sense...ill post some pics july 10th), only been lifting for about 2 months steady.....(have lifted before but never really stuck to it)

    Monday is the first day of the routine and I will update daily with progress etc.

    I suppose...I pretty much take a week off whenever I feel like I'm staying fatigued or need to rest......I for the most part am doing MAX OT which I believe is 8 weeks on one week off.... I have been putting on huge gains as far as strength in this past 8 weeks which I am very happy with (went from 145 lbs to 225 lbs on bench) so I'm going to stay at it....if I can do six reps, up the weight, if i can only do four, stay there :p

    Today was chest day

    Flat Barbell Bench PRess
    2 sets of 225 lbs for 6 reps (struggled, week off apparently hurt me)
    1 set of 235 lbs for 3 reps

    Incline Barbell Bench Press
    2 sets of 155 lbs for 6 reps
    1 set of 185 lbs until failure

    Flat Bench Dumbell Flies

    I'm exhausted....nauseous...apparently taking the week off last week did more harm then good....oh well, at least my left arm feels good now...so i dont sound like a pussy when im lifting haha.....Time to man up though, not happy with my numbers considering my weight etc.
