It's been awhile since I've logged on to this site. I'm 5' 11" and I weigh at 177.1 lbs right now. My goal is to gain size and muscles. My maintenance cal is aprox 2725.8 and I'm bulking up slowly so I gotta consume 3225.8 cal per day, which is somewhat tough because I tend to skip breakfast and not eat anything till noon. I often have a tough time trying to reach 2725 cal, let alone 3225. I'm working on waking up earlier and just forcefeed myself in the morning. I'm following the basic exercise rountine found here: http://www.wannabebig.com/training/routines-and-programs/wannabebig-the-original-routine/ I have one change to it however: Instead of Dip, Im doing wide grip overhead pullups. I don't have the equipment at home to do dips so. May 22nd (chest and back): Flat Bench Press: 70lbsx11 70lbsx7 Low Inc DB Press: 20lbsx12 20lbsx10 Wide Grip Pullups: 12 12 Comment: I sort of hopped off the floor during the last few reps trying to reach 12 rep. Chin ups: 8 7 Comment: Really hopped alot here. I tried using a chair to support one leg while I pulled myself up, but it kept moving forward. Deadlifts: 50lbsx8 50lbsx12 Comment: I was just focusing more on my form than to lift heavier. I'm still not sure about my form I was thinking about videotaping myself next time and see how my form is and make adjustment accordingly. Barbell Rows: 20lbsx12 20lbsx12 Comment: Needed more weight, it felt too easy for me. Shrugs: 40lbsx16 40lbsx16 Comment: Needed more weight here too. Prework out meal: One scoop of N.O. Xplode Post-workout meal: 1/2 cup of protien shake/skim milk, 2 eggs (whole), and 2 whole wheat toasts. I considered eating a whole tincan of tuna mixed with onions, but I was feelin full so I'll save it for next meal. Now... the first step is done... I gotta wait till monday to start day one and then continue sticking it out for the whole summer. That's the biggest hurdle for me actually is to motivate myself every week. I should actually mention that I was doing P90x for a whole week last week before changing my routine. I decided to save P90x for later when I want to lean out my body.
