    Taterís gains and losses

    Iíve been needing to start a training log to better track progress. Iíve made some good lean gains so far. Started out at 230lbs at 5í10 with spaghetti arms and a bulging midsection. Iím still a disgusting 41 year old fat body and type 2 diabetic but Iím thinning down. I typically train PPL 2X week and do cardio and abs only on the off day. Tomorrow is my off day so Iím going to do some cardio and abs. I typically spend an hour with warmups and work sets. I donít rest much between because I try to squeeze a lot of work in a short window. I usually workout at 4:30am but sometimes do an afternoon cardio session too.

    Below is my typical supplementation:

    preworkout is currently Lit from Beyond Raw
    5g creatine monohydrate
    multivitamin
    2000mg gnc fish oil
    BCAA post workout


    Below was todayís Push workout:

    incline dumbbell press 3X10 @ 50lbs and 1 set to failure at 8 reps
    ez bar skull crushers and close grip press 4X10 each superset
    hammer curls 4X10 @ 35lbs
    machine chest press 4X10 @ 115lbs
    cable crossovers 4 sets but I canít remember the weight.
    tricep pull downs and overhead cable extensions 3X10-12 @ 50lbs to failure on last set
    ab machine 130lbs crunches to failure 3 sets
    10 minutes on treadmill HIIT

    I track calories and macros on an app called Lose It! and that works well for me. 2100 calories is my goal with protein being 180 grams of it and good fats with lower carbs. Diet is 90% of my problem and Iím fixing it.


    I am not a badass like some of you other guys and gals but Iím not scared of work and this is my new obsession. I workout at a planet fatness so free weights are scarce. I will graduate to a real gym soon. I feel like Iím the only guy sweating in the place.

    Good stuff spud.

    Why curls on push day?

    We live on an island of knowledge surrounded
    by a sea of ignorance.
    As our island of knowledge grows,
    so too does the shore of our ignorance.

    personally do back & tri's / chest & bi's routine as well

    the theory is in my case that the pushes already are hitting the tri

    then hitting the bicep will swell the whole arm

    & vice versa on back day

    rather than walking around with only half of the arm swole

    which brings me to something ive heard from several gals

    arms on dudes to chicks

    are like butts on chicks to dudes

    a nice ass goes a long way imo even on a not so great looking gal

    if that makes any sense

    According to some very reputable sources, girls also love guys with good butts.

    You'll be a bad ass soon enough. Looking forward to watching your journey. Whether you post them or not, take some before pictures. You'll be amazed when you look back at them in a year.

    dk makes a great point. You see yourself every day and sometimes you may get discouraged by your seemingly lack of progress. If you have pics to refer to you will notice a big difference. I take pics every week and log them away on my pc. I cant believe how much I have changed in the past 12 months, and I am not a noob.

    Keep it up brother! You will be there before you know it!

    Thanks all! Every day is arm day...except leg day...right? Seriously though, I've been working on strengthening my ecrb as often as possible because I tweak the ol tennis elbow every now and then on single joint exercises. Hammer curls and reverse grip curls seem to stretch it out for me.

    I did the picture thing too. I take a weekly pic and just file it away for a later date.

    Make sure youre super pasty white in the first pic and then all tanned and oily in the final one. That's how they sell the creatine.

    Creatine - milk of the Gods. I know it's good for retaining water intramuscularly but I'm still not sure what other benefits I get from it. Supposedly you recover quicker too.

    I forgot to mention that I am on TRT replacement (150mg/week) and after three weeks of that, I do feel a general sense of well being and less like a bish...

    Glad they got you straightened out. You wont feel the full benefits for a little while but it's a nice ride.

    Oh and my opinion is that supplementing with creatine does nothing but take your money

    Shoulders and front delts are really starting to take shape. Newbie gains.
