I stopped logging here because PSD used to take me like 1 minute to get from page to page. Then my computer went down a few weeks and we found one of the ram chips (I think?) was bad and since then it's been way faster so I am going to do a log again here to track everything.
Goals: Bulking right now. Started my bulk 4 months or so ago at 170-172 and currently am at 184-186. Hit a wall recently so I'm bumping up the calories from 3200 to about 3500 or so and may even go closer to 4000 if I need to. I want to get up to 195 and maybe even 200 we'll see as we go along.
I'm planning on doing very little abs at all as I just don't think isolating abs is that important when you are doing lots of compound exercises. I might do like 2 sets of weighted abs a week and that's all.
Current Lifts (approximately - I don't max out often): Bench Press:
Now = 215-225 x 1
Goal = 250x1 in 6 months
Now = 275x1
Goal = 315x1 ATG in 6 months
Now = 295x1
Goal = 350x1 perfect form in 6 months
Overhead press:(just added this in so not sure what's realistic)
Now = 115x8
Goal = 135x8 in 6 months
Now = BWx18 (that's my PR but I weighed way less)
Goal = BWx20 at 200 pounds
Those are really the only exercises I care about and I think with hard work over the coming months I can hit those goals.
I'm a little off schedule this week, so I have chest/tri's tonight instead of tomorrow. Then I'm doing back/bi's tomorrow before transitioning into the split above. Might take a few weeks to get to those exact days.
Did shoulders yesterday. Supposed to do hammies too but I've decided to not do legs for a week or so because my knee just isn't getting better, I may even get it checked out which I never go to the doctor. Annoying.
Wasn't even full after all that lol I love bulking
3,600 calories (right where I want to be)
Protein = 240g
Carbs = 238g
Fat = 175g
Fat was higher than I'd like but that's due to drinking olive oil and eating peanut butter to get to 3,600 at the end of the day. I'd like to be closer to 100g and add to carbs/protein so I'll tinker with it a little today.
Did Back/Bi's yesterday. Pretty excited because I switched my grip on deadlifts and it is making it WAY easier to maintain good form. I am keeping my hands close together so they are inside my legs as opposed to outside my legs and it makes it so much easier to keep my back from rounding. I was talking to a beast on bb.com and he suggested that looking at my form and he was spot on, so happy about that now I can up the weight more comfortably.
Warmup - 10 minutes on treadmill
Wide pronated grip pull ups:
3 sets got 10 then 7 then 6.
Regular grip supinated pull ups:
3 sets got 8 then 7 then 7.
Bent over rows -BB:
Never got 12 for all 3 sets I don't think, so upping to 155 next week.
3 sets of 12 with 25 pound weight.
85x6 -> 65x5 drop set
Cable Curls individual arms:
Basketball tonight then shoulders/hammies tomorrow. Knee is feeling great right now after a week off from legs, tonight is a big test I hope I don't feel it on the court.
