Here is my BBB journal. I have been doing this workout for quite a while and find it extremely effective.

I am starting a journal here and will try to keep it current. My weight this a.m. was 227.2 first thing on an empty stomach.

I am currently doing ramp 1 and on week 2. Sets are 4 sets per bodypart and 90 second rest between sets. ( I am doing the six day version 1 workout per day )

Here is what I did today: Delts, tris, legs, abs

Thanks Bone- Nope - I am doing the six day version -The four day gets too long on Thursday and Friday for me- but I have done well on it in the past when work forces me to cut back. Still, given a choice I like the six day best ( for me )

Left work early today and headed straight to the gym. I did Delts, Triceps, Legs, and abs. Here is what I did:

Delts- Seated presses to the front on Smith Machine 1x215x12, 1x215x10, 1x205x10, 1x205x9, 1x200x10

Triceps- close grip bench press 1z230x10, 1x230x8, 1x220x10, 1x205x11, 1x205x10

Legs- Leg curls 1x130x10, 1x130x10, 1x120x9, 1x110x9, 1x100x11 ( legs still sore from Hacks! )

Abs- hanging leg raised 3x15
crunches 2x15

Good workout - I felt really tired all day but seemed to pick up when I got to the gym. I can’t wait til next week when I start SuperGrowth Phase 1. I always do well with long rest periods and lower reps.

Upper back and chest starting to fill out some. Arms are slowly looking better but should come around in the next couple of weeks.

Weight is 233.5 this a.m. on an empty stomcach - so I am up about 5-6 pounds so far. Gotta watch it though as I tend to get carried away and get too much in the wrong places!

Chest, back, biceps and calves on tap for tomorrow!
