Hey all, I've been a lurker in this forum for quite a while now, and just now I've decided to start a log to hold myself accountable. First, some basic info. I'm 19 years old, soon to be 20. 190 lbs last time I checked, at unknown bodyfat%. I squat 250, deadlift 340, and bench-press 170, all for 5 reps.
I'm currently in college studying for a computer science major. I'd like to say I've been training for 2 years, but that would be a filthy lie. For the longest time I was one of "those" guys. You know, Men's Health reading, new routine every week, I want "hot abz" kind of guy.
So I did some horrible training for a year and a half. No progress at all in the weight room, diet out of line, probably getting fatter. This past august I decided to get my crap together. Came up with a diet, found a training routine that I thought would work for me, and buckled up.
I've been doing the routine outlined in this article: http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/who_wants_to_be_a_novice_you_do
I don't mind eating the same thing every day, so I do. You know, to keep consistency. This would be a regular training day for me:
5:30 a.m: Wake up, make a cup of oatmeal with milk and a banana.
6:00 a.m: Walk to my gym, warm up, and start working out. I eat a FINiBAR after squatting.
~8:00 a.m: Come back home, have a protein shake (2 cups milk, 2 servings Grow!, a tablespoon of pb) + 2 bananas. at this time I also take a multivitamin, vitamin d, and fish oils.
9:00 a.m: go to work on-campus and classes.
12:00 p.m: lunch. 12 oz of steak with 2 potatoes and butter.
3:00 p.m: Clif bar to quell hunger.
5:00 p.m: get back from school and eat 8 whole scrambled eggs + another protein shake like the one before.
7:00 p.m: 12 oz of ground bison + 4 oz mozarella.
10:00 p.m: go to sleep.
So yeah, that's about all I can think of right now...
