I've been a golfer all my life. The weight room was never somewhere I needed to spend my time
So I had a late start and started lifting about 2.5 years ago in the spare bedroom of my apartment, hittin' up the bench press and curls about 3 times a week. It was the exact model of a confused newb's plan, didn't squat or deadlift, very little back work, no shoulder work, just worked the gunz and chest. Then I went to college about a yr. and a half ago, and hit up the weight room there. The equipment was somewhat limited but I had plenty of barbells, db's, and power racks to do work. Still wasn't doing any leg work or deadlifts though. Fast forwarding to around April or May of 09', I finally got a gym membership and started getting really serious about putting on size and strength. Now I want to just get into the best shape possible and possibly one day compete, I'm still undecided on that one. But bodybuilding means alot to me and has helped me alot in just the two years I've been into it.
Currently shooting for 3k calories @ 45/35/20 (p/c/f)
The numbers vary just depending on how I feel, progress, and whether its a rest day or training day.
Sunday: Deadlifts and Back
Monday: Shoulders, tri's
Thursday: Squats and legs
Friday: Bench and chest, bi's
Cardio 1-2 times a week but that will increase to 3-4 days soon and at least 5 days when I'm cutting. Lifting is 5/3/1 with bodybuilding template for assistance work, but this changes every 2-3 months. I've done the boring but big, triumverate (sp?), and "ain't doing jack sh!t" templates as well
Add a lot of weight to all of my lifts across the board. Short term (6 months - a year) strength goals: Bench - 275 or more, Squat - 350 or more, Deadlift- 450 or more. Not far from these and have hit all those numbers before but not consistent enough to maintain it.
