    Hey everyone, finally starting my journal here on PHF. My life has been EXTREMELY hectic. Brief recap of past two weeks:
    1) Graduated college
    2) Lost the job I thought I was going to get, due to criminal background
    3) Decided not to move to Columbus, so will be mooching off friends until I find a job and then I will move to where my job is.

    That being said I will be job hunting and working out full time now! Kind of been lifting haphazardly lately but like I said been too busy.
    My cycle so far has been Deca-Drol Max and Cyanostane. By IML... I LOVE these products. Despite my slack workouts lately I have been looking vascular and always feeling good.

    About a week ago I started up my Tren / Test prop cycle (still have two weeks left on Deca-Drol and Cyano also! Special thanks to AW, EZK and BML.
    I will be running these at:
    Test: 1ml / day (700mg / week)
    Tren: 1ml / day (700mg / week) --- If the sides become too intense I will dial it back.

    I wish I didn't start these babies up until Monday (after moving and all that good stuff is done) but I got so damn excited I couldn't help myself!
    Went to the park today did some pullups and dips. I felt LIGHT. I promise you guys now that I am a big boy-all graduated and what not--I will be perfecting my diet a lot more! I think big changes will happen after this cycle.

    Just dawned on me. Now that I am graduated I no longer have a gym membership.
    Going to have to join the "community" gym. Ping (the University gym) is too expensive and won't do a monthly term, I plan to only be in town here for another 3-4 weeks--by then I best have a job

    Thanks everyone
    So i join the local community center. 60 bucks for 20 visits. The equipment sucks but as I am working out some guy tells me about a warehouse-gym thats 25 bucks a month, and has chains, power bands, all the good stuff. Going to try to get a refund tomorrow and hit that place up. Definitly going to change my training substantially. Should remain in town about a month then I will be moving to wherever the job takes me.

    Took it easy today. Gotta ease into this working out thing again tomorrow I will go to the park and do a pullup routine.

    Flat bench:
    135lbs - 20
    225lbs - 15
    315lbs - 10, 9, 6 ... dead yeah I have fallen off a little bit, but it will come back very fast.

    flyes 35lbs - 2 sets to failure

    pushups 3 sets


    dinner we are cooking out some salmon, hot dogs, and steak! lol

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Took yesterday off. Today did another short routine. Was tired, I did 7 hours of driving today (house hunting) and when I came back I ate two "lean pockets" and some milk and hit the gym.

    Cleans: 135lbs 3 sets of 6 reps (probably not the right name, I do a clean but no squat involved. Bend down pick weight up, bring it to top of chest as if going to shoulder press).

    Standing Shoulder press: 135lbs. Set 1: 36 reps. Set 2: 28 reps? --- recorded

    Bend over Row: 135lbs - 3 sets of 10 reps

    Pull ups wide: 8 - 7 - 5

    Will post videos of shoulder press once its done uploading

    Kind of funny because my buddy, who trains with me, climbed his deadlifts up to 505lbs--we did the same things, same routine. Just my deads dont progress. Something I am going to have to take a real hard look at once I get back in a real gym (once I finish moving).

    Think I am going to start at like 315lbs and do 1/4th lift, then 2/4th lift, then 3/4th lift, then full deadlift. (4 weeks). Using the safety bar to keep my range of motion in check (so I can do the 1/4th or 2/4th, etc).

    I can pull 315 5 times max... My max is close to 400, but it feels like my veins & traps will rip out of my neck!

    Monster workout today.
    Settled on a gym. LA Fitness. I like all the equipment. Though everything has monkey grips (the bars are real thick and big).

    So now I am back on my GRIZZZLEEE

    Alright everyone. I am going to be running a log here is the scoop.

    I went saw a dietitian today and personal trainer. We are going to work me into ~230lbs. Then I will cut for competitions from there.
    For the first 4 weeks of this quest I will be running only Osta RX and then after that I will kick it up a notch and throw in some big boy compounds.

    My diet we are going to have look like this:

    Meals:
    1)
    10 egg whites
    4 slices whole weat
    1cup oatmeal with banana
    1 cup OJ

    2)
    8oz chicken breast
    1 cup rice

    3)
    steak
    1 cup rice

    4) protein shake

    5) 6oz chicken
    1/2cup rice

    6)
    fish
    broccolli
    1/2cup brown rice.

    Probably will not follow it to the letter but am damn gonna try. Going to go spend about 300 in groceries tomorrow. Gonna go to Sams and just buy bulk

    My training:

    Monday - legs
    Tuesday - Chest
    Wed - back
    Thursday - Shoulders
    Friday - Legs
    Sat - Arms.

    I was told, and I knew this already, that my legs are pathetic and I should be able to easily gain 15lbs in that area alone.

    I will be working with a personal trainer on legs days twice a month (and will do legs without the trainer on the other days).

    The official start is Monday. I will have my first leg training session at 3pm.
    Tomorrow I go grocery shopping.

    Yeah man it is going to be an adventure.
    I start monday.
    My biggest worry is that I will not have the discipline to stick to the diet. Am hoping that the girl in my life can help me stick to it. Going to be an adventure.
    Could always use tips from anyone about eating / dietary discipline. The above mentioned foods are what I am going to mainly be sticking to it.
