I decided I should probably start a journal to track some of what I've been doing on my first bulking cycle ever to hopefully gain some feedback from more experienced lifters than I.

Background
I'm 24 years old. I've been lifting heavy for about 3years now, at least trying to. Never really had a set plan or program or cycle for that matter until just recently starting a few weeks ago. Started a 3day split program Tue/Thur/Sat vs lifting 6 days a week (completely idiotic).

Current Progress
I'm 5'10", started at 145lbs with around 10%BF. Began to track my calories 07/17/2008 - present which I will also be posting including my current workout activities. Gained a total of 4.5lbs weighed on 08/03/2008 (18th day of tracking). I've been having trouble going higher, hopefully my log will help with advice there.

Goals
To gain enough weight to start a cutting cycle. At first I was thinking 10lbs (155lbs) but I'm already struggling to gain after 149.5 thinking about starting to eat pure junk to gain more but a little afraid of looking horrible lol. First Bulking cycle so I was thinking 155 would be enough to re-evaluate my weight and appearance and possibly go higher from there.

Progress Pics
These are gonna be hard for me to upload since I'm in the middle of a move I have disconnected inet service to my house and I can't upload photo's from work. I'll attempt to upload at a friends house sometime so have some patience please.

Workout Program
Tue/Thur/Sat
A/B/A Style alternating

A:
3x5 Squat
3x5 Bench Press
1x5 Deadlift
Abs

B:
3x5 Squat
3x5 Military/Shoulder Press
3x5 Rows
Abs
