Been lurking around here since last may, here's how my last ~9 months have gone. May 21st, 2007, I decided to change my life around. Weigh in that day, I was ~210lbs and 6'1". The day after my 22nd birthday that is. I spent the summer losing weight, trying to run every day, stopped eating fast food completely. By the time school started in August, I was down to about 175lb. Once school started, I ran ~3 miles a day, 5 days a week to get my stamina up until I was ready to start lifting. I've always been moderately strong, but not in a tone/defined/whatever sort of way. As of currently, I'm right around 170lbs even, would like to be ~165lb trim, but I'm happy with my current weight. I started going to the gym the first week of November, 2007. I was in the gym 5 days a week from that point on (and still am to this day). First day (a monday..chest day) I laid on a flat bench to do dumbell benchpress, and couldn't finish my sets (last set was with 35lb weights to give you an idea) Currently, my week goes. Monday - Chest Tuesday - Legs Wednesday - Shoulders Thursday - Arms Friday - Back Saturday/sunday - rest/cardio Anywho. My first workout when I get to the gym is 1x15 warmup 1x15 warmup 1x12, 1x10, 1x8 work sets After that, it goes 1x15 transition 1x12, 1x10, 1x8 work sets Chest day - Flat dumbell bench, incline dumbell bench, decline bar bench, cable flies (top to bottom, bottom to top, and bent over). I change each week between cable flies to dumbell flies. On days I still have energy left, I do 3x15 Dips (leaning far forward). Alright, so it's been about four months of going to the gym on average 5 times a week, every part of me has improved and toned and gained quite a bit of definition except my chest. Is it possible that this was the part of me that was most lacking, or is chest just a very difficult part to gain mass and definition? My strength in this area has increased immensely. My last set I can now do with 75lb dumbbells (incline and flat bench) decline today I did 165lb. I suppose if I'm trying to gain lower definition and mass, then focusing on things like decline bench and bottom to top cable flies could do it. Is this true? I'm sure I'm missing something, but I'm here all the time. Thanks doods. By the way, I don't take any supplements of any kind.
