This will be the start of my online weight training journal. I plan on gaining weight like i have been and strength as well. When I get to my desired goal weight gain wise I will then aim to get ripped chisseled and rock hard. This is my first journal entry and will add as soon as i lift.

I finally lifted. It was chest and triceps day heres the results.

bench press 1 x 12 reps 225 lbs
1 x 10 reps 225
1 x 8 reps 225

I'm lifting 225 to gain strength and endurance for lifting that weight i eventually want to be able to lift 225 30 times if im lucky haha Also one of my spotters said my left arm was down some while lifting I'm going to have to correct that

Incline dbell bench press 1 x 12 65 lbs d bells
1 x 10 70 lbs d bells
1 x 8 75 lbs d bells
The last set here was amazing the last rep was so hard to push up thank god i had a spotter in case i needed it

pull overs 1 x 12 65 lb d bell
1 x 10 70 lb d bell
I know pull overs work the lats but i also feel it in the triceps thats why i think i incorporate that into my chest day

Machine butterflies 1 x 12 160 lbs
1 x 10 190 lbs
1 x 6 205 lbs
the reason i dropped to six was because the reps were extremely hard and a day later im feeling that work out in my biceps?

triceps press downs 1 x 12 70 lbs machine
1 x 10 85 lbs machine

at this point my triceps are pretty close to burned out....so yea the dips later i knew would kill me which they did

dips 8 unassisted ( all i could do by then )
7 with a small spot on the seventh
5 reps with a 55 lb spot assisted dip machine

overall i think it was an ok chest/triceps day i would just like to adjust this some i dont know maybe switch around workouts or something bis and back are today will post that tomorrow

yesterday was bi's and back

i tried to change it up thinking i was stronger than i was i proceeded to do this

preacher curls
1x5 110 lbs i thought i could maybe do 8 reps preachers are a lot harder to do will lower the weight

alternating d bell curls
1x10 50 lb dbells usually i would do this first and not even do preachers but wow the preacher curls not only killed my forearms and my grip it made that A LOT harder

inverted hammer curls
1x10 30 lbs
1x8 35 lbs

concentration curls ( i added this one trying to get a better workout )
1x10 reps 30 lbs it was a lot harder than i expected

bent over rows(d bell)

1x12 65 lbs
1x10 70 lbs
1x8 75 lbs I love bent over rows cause to me it also feels like a cardio workout i sweat my butt off cause i dont wait from left arm to right LOVE IT

Rows on machine

1x12 70 lbs
1x10 80 lbs

lat pull downs
1x12 50 lbs
1x10 60 lbs

lastly pullups i was so dead i couldnt even do one i needed to do 3 assisted pull ups maybe i should put that first. overall not a bad day i think that the butterflies the day before work my biceps a little not too sure though.
