Big Beyond Belief

A few months back i had a log here i was doing pretty good but then i got sidetracked with life and stopped posting for a while…Two months ago i decided to hit the gym but i wouldn’t make a log until i could prove to myself i’d stay cosistent and wouldn’t waste anyone’s time on these boards.Here i am (:

Here’s a few stats of mine.

19 years old
B.W.168-171 lb
Bench Press 160 x 5(goal 225 x 5)
Squat 235 x 5(315 x 5)
DB Shoulder Press 55 x 8(75 x 5)
DB Row 80 x 5(110 x 5)

My main goal is to become stronger and big . I don’t really have a deadline since i realize this is marathon not a race , but i hope to have a made a lot of progress by December since it’s my birthday.

At the moment i’m running BigBeyondBelief . According to MODOK it’s supposed to give me so many stretchmarks that i’ll look like a tiger lol provided that im eating right.Running the 4 day btw.

Here’s my diet:

Morning: Protein Shake with oats.900 calories,50g protein

Lunch: Rice ,Beans,and chicken.600-900 calories, around 30-40g protein

Postworkout: SUPREME Protein bar-400 calories,30g protein

Thanks man . I’d look into your progress on BBB but you dont seem to be updating your log lol. Good luck to you as well.

Here’s a before pic. Ill use it to compare later. As you can tell i have big shoulder imbalance which i got from baseball. Hopefully all these unilateral movements i do for shoulders and back will help fix that.

Past 2 days tried doing my BBB routine but unfortunately im not able to do any of the exercises i want to do because someone always takes the machine when im about to use it so my workouts keep getting messed up…My gym is rediculously packed . Going to start going super early or super late hopefully it’ll be empty…
