MpoweredM: Just another progress thread...

So, I figured I would start some sort of log of my efforts. I don't write stuff down, or blog, and am not on any other sites so I figured i could do it here as there are many others that give good information. Not to mention I'm not going to be competing and such as it is more for myself so my ego doesn't have to be beat down too much on a body building forum. haha

First off I'll say I am indeed a hard gainer in my opinion. I can eat whole pizzas, sodas, etc and have never really gained a pound. (I don't do such anymore btw) I'm actually off all soda for a couple years now, 'twas just an example. I guess I shouldn't be too upset with that however. I have always been "fit" and "athletic". Just never true muscular. Cut only due to lack body fat. So this year I decided I'd get back into the gyms and really try to pack on some muscle. I started at a mere 144 on my first day in the gym for my "fit test" at my gym. This was at the end of January some time. This morning I weighed in at 155. My weight fluctuates a lot due to the insane amount of water I drink and eat daily. I continually try to eat roughly 4k calories a day between meals and shakes. I'm in the gym for 1-1.5 hours a day at the most.

My work out routine is as such

Biceps and back
Chest and triceps
Shoulders
Legs
Abs

No set days. Just go in order with how I feel and m work schedule (which is always changing) my work forces me to be on my feet for 9 hours a day. I don't sit, nor work hard. However I'm always walking which for me I'm sure assists in burning a lot off.

I just recently started using fitocracy after reading some reviews on it. I never have had a work out log so hopefully this will help me track my progression. As noted I started working out about 2 months ago before starting this thread but hopefully I'll continue to progress by putting on the muscle and mass that I'm looking for. My overall goal is about 185. And to be able to remain there would be my long term goal for now.



So here are most three recent work outs for now... I took an extra day off this week which is why I threw shoulders in on another day...

45 lb x 15 reps (+16 pts)
45 lb x 10 reps (+15 pts)

pretty good squat numbers for your weight I think. I'd keep clean reps a little lower unless that was very easy for you. How are you with them? I know they're tough to learn.

I need to work on the finish. I wouldn't say they were easy, but manageable. But the top was...odd. Struggled getting my elbows up.

5'11" today's weight was 157. Right now weight would probably be 164. Eating and drinking like crazy today.
