iGNiTE | Training Log Note I'd like to keep this log free of outside posts, so please forward any questions or comments (which would be much appreciated) via PM. Major Updates - 7 March 2005 - Training log created. - 7 April 2005 - Routine revamped. Background I'm a 20 year old male, fairly new to lifting. I've had two brief encounters with working out in the past; one in high-school which was an absolute joke and lacked free weights almost completely, and a second in first year university which was the beginnings of my current knowledge base and routine. Unfortunately, while this attempt was much more successful and guided, my diet and dedication were not even close to where I needed them to be. I've been a scrawny bastard my entire life and have always been self-conscious about it. Hopefully this log will be an additional means of motivation to stay consistent and hardcore until I can reach my goals, which are as follows. Goals My primary goal is to gain a significant amount of lean body mass: - Clean bulk to 160lbs by 1 June 2005 - Clean bulk to 200lbs (Timeframe TBD) - Cut / shred to 185lbs @ 8-10% (Timeframe TBD) My secondary goal is to gain a significant amount of strength: - Bench 175x5 by 1 June 2005 - Squat 275x3 by 1 June 2005 - Deadlift 315x3 by 1 June 2005 Nutrition Daily - 4000-5000 calories - 1.5-2.0g protein per lb bodyweight - Maintain 30/50/20 protein/carbohydrate/fat ratio - 4L water Supplements - ProLab NLarge2 - ProLab Creatine Monohydrate - Centrum Performance Multi-vitamin - Generic Fish Oil Gel Caps - Generic Flax Seed Oil Gel Caps Baseline Stats Date: 1 January 2005 Age: 20 Height: 5'8.5" Weight: 140lbs (naked before eating in the morning) Bodyfat: ~13% (taken with shady monitor) Bodytype: Ectomorph Bench: 145x1 Squat: 185x1 Deadlift: 285x1 Before photo, taken 21 November 2004, right after buzzing all my hair off. --- Anyway, thanks for taking a look at my log and thanks to everyone @ F&N for the valuable resource of information.
