Hey guys, brand new on here, I think this board saved my life (bodybuilding-wise).
I'll start this one off with my very brief history. I started lifting (seriously anyway) coming in to my senior year(06) and I looked like thisDoesn't let me post links yet)
I was outright scrawny and I hated it. So I got on a plan getting protein every 2 hours (usually sentha-6) along with multi-vitamins. I also went through a stack of M-1 bol and 17-bol, ( I know, I know). So I grew a lot and people even thought I was on steroids. Anyways I graduated looking like this:
(I'll post after 20 posts)
Don't believe it was me? Look at the necklace.
So I went through a cardio phase and on-off training and now I look like this and am looking to bulk again:
(Pictures are attached in order)
So I'll be starting classes the 8th of January and I'll also be starting a high-calorie and protein diet and training. I'll post more when I get to that.

Well it wasn't full of surprises, just 5-6 days a week, leg days (skipped them a lot), Chest days, back days, arm days. If I was still sore for the day it was I would just work abbs really hard.
Here's what each day consisted of (bear with me, I never learned the proper name for alot of exercisesLeg days: Not much extensions on both sides, leg press, and calf raises. 3 sets of all.
Chest days: Always started with:
Bench: 12-reps, 8-10 reps, then whatever I could muster, usually no more than 5
Any type of Tricep exercise
Cable X-over: Same reps and sets
Then I'd usually do a per-isolating exercise, 3 sets and on the last one I'd do it until I couldn't anymore
Back:3 sets of everything 12, 8-10,6
I'd warm up on a machine where you pull a small handle with both hands and pull it toward your chest
Then I'd go do 3 sets of curls
Then I'd go to the pull down machine and do sets of 3 different grips of pull downs: body with, wide grip, wide grip behind the head
After that I'd wrap up with a random back exercise.
Thats just from memory though, it varied a little bit
I'll be setting up my new workout plan soon, and thanks
