So i decided to start an online training journal in order to share my journey with all those who may be interested.
So lets get everyone up to speed….
At this point I am going on my 6th workout since taking 12 days off from the gym. I like to take a 7-10 day break from the gym every 3-4 months. This time around i took a few extra days only because I competed in a natural bodybuilding competition and i felt that I could use it.
I am weighing about 215-218 pounds. This is a big difference from the 193 I was weighing on the competition diet. And for the record I now know that 193 was too low for me. Next time around its a fuller 196-199, you can count on it !!

I am pushing hard but not too hard as I want my body to become accustomed to the lifting. Going full force right out of the gates could invite injury, and with my long limbs I am prone to injuries.
I had a great chest, shoulders, triceps workout. It really kicked my ass. I trained with friend/training partner Kevin . At the moment i am sticking to a Push/Pull/Leg routine with an added day for a full body blast. So far so good. As time goes on I plan on breaking things up into a more traditional split, but for now I like how I am feeling.
This was my first all out Push workout so I can tell that I will be extremely sore tomorrow. I also am trying out a higher rep range every other week for my triceps, so they were burning up by the end of the session.
For chest and shoulders we stuck to …
