Feel free to post anything here in relation of my journal. I'll post something here also, as long as I know what it might be. We'll see.

And yeah, if somebodys wondering, I'm 180cm (5"9) tall, and weight 72kg (152lbs) at this moment. So yeah, I'm small and a bit skinny. But I have a bit muscle too, not too many bones sticking out and such. I'm trying to add some mass with altering my protein and carb intake on daily basis depenging on my daily exercising.

The journal doesn't include warm-ups, which are basically the same moves with lower weights, building to the actual weight in three sets (5/5/3). I have found this to be an okay workout, as I don't feel like I'm tearing a muscle, and I'm not too tired before the actual set.

Sounds about right, and if it keeps working, keep doing it.

Also I should note that I have broken nearly every(Bench is few kg away.) 5RM PR that I set two months ago, by doing more than the weight for 5 sets of 5. I still think they are a bit lower than reality, but still, It's something. I'm proud. Especially on the chin-ups. Progress is happening!!

Gloves for everything. I'm a sensitive man, and I hate when my hands get blisters/callouses and sometimes even bleed after working out. I'm used to them, so it bothers me when they're lost.

Since my huge anatomy exam is on it's way in just 22 days, I thought I would do something special to learn some muscles of human. I thought I would make a thread, deticated to simply muscles. Nearly daily, I would post some muscles, usually somehow related to each other, and really write pretty much everything about the muscles, origos insertions, functions, plus some additional trivia if something comes to mind. For a total 59 muscles, there would be some 2 to 5 muscles per post. I think that helps me to learn, and somehow I thought some of you could be interested on reading this, atleast some of it. I know there are almost similar information on the front page, but do you really just stumble there occasionally to read about random muscles? I hope not, that's how I could be useful. To inform people about random muscles you use every time you get to the gym. Also there might be something you didn't know.

I'll be starting tomorrow if lucky. Any comments about this idea?

We're free to ignore it.
So, sure, why not?

I'd read it, for a bit at least.

How will it differ from me reading a text, or web page on simialr topic?

I try to make it even a bit more easier. One way is that I could connect muscles into groups,like muscles that move the scapula, hamstrings, the hip rotator muscles and rotatory cuff muscles in example. Also I could mention a few stretches and gym/bodyweight moves around the muscle. Or the plantarflexors of your ankle for example. Some pictures could also be inserted. Maybe.

But I'll think overnight, I'll see...

I think you should compost a poem for each muscle. It can incorporate the information you planned. Some of them should be defined poetic forms--sonnet, double dactyl, limerick, haiku, etc.

If they're really bad poems, he should "compost" them, but shouldn't we withhold judgement until he writes them?
