    *My Journal*

    Alright guys, I'm new to the site so I figure I would post what I started doing today. I'm about 2 weeks into working out again. I used to workout my freshman year but that was MANY years ago!! I was 15 then I'm 22 now!

    I'm 5"7 setting at 160lbs. What I'm using is Whey Protein for my shakes, BLITZ pre workout, and I take NaTren HGX and Oxan-VR. Both pills, If you don't know what the last two are, the NaTren HGX is for extreme mass & strength and the Oxan-VR is for defined mass & strength.

    Today "Saturday" my work out was Upper body I did,

    Curls dumbbells
    20lbs-14x
    25lbs-10x
    30lbs-8x
    35lbs-6x

    Overhead press dumbbells
    30lbs-15x
    35lbs-10x
    40lbs-8x
    45lbs-6x

    Triceps Rope pull downs
    60lbs-15x
    80lbs-10x
    90lbs-6x

    Pull ups
    3 sets 10 each set

    Dips
    1 set 15x
    2 set 10x

    Rear Delt Pull machine
    90lbs-10x
    130lbs-8x
    150lbs-6x

    arm extensions machine
    70lbs-10x
    90lbs-8x

    Chest Press machine
    70lbs-15x
    90lbs-8x
    110lbs-6x

    When I do my legs again I will write down everything I do and post it on here also! Also, If there are any tips or pointers you guys can tell me I would appreciate that! I will try and get some pictures up of me as I'm starting out and as im progressing! Thanks!!

    CMN,

    Glad to see you're starting a journal...Unreal how fast time fly's, huh? I'm turning 28 this summer and each year is going by faster than the last!!!

    Looking at your workout routine, I would suggest spending a bit more time on the compound lifts- It's amazing how much they (compound movements) will do for things like your bi's and tri's despite not targeting them in isolation. As many recommend on this forum, post your diet if possible. Guys with a lot more experience than myself will tell you that diet is really 80% of the equation in successful bodybuilding.

    And if I didn't already say so, welcome aboard!
