So procrastinating from studying, figure it's probably good for me to make one of these and track my progress. My stats:
Age: 19
Height: 75 inches
Weight: 194 lbs
Bodyfat: Probably around 10%, don't know exactly but my lower abs are visible with a little bit of fat over them. I have very little peripheral fat.
Long-term goals: General aesthetics and health. Also nice to be better when I do athletic things.

Current Exercise Program: I workout 5 days a week and "cycle" through my body parts in 4 workouts. So a given week may go like this for me:
Monday-Chest, Tuesday-Arms, Wednesday-Legs, Friday-Back + Shoulders, Saturday-Chest, Monday-Arms, Tuesday-Legs, ...
My workouts are typically 1 hr 15 min. Don't do much cardio besides the occasional pickup basketball game or swimming. I live in the city and don't own a car so I walk everywhere I go.

Current Diet: I try to eat every 3 hours, but this usually comes down to every 4 hours due to procrastination. During workout I sip a drink with 36g protein (whey) and 72g carbs (malto). I down another one of these after working out. My average non-workout meal usually has around 40g protein and 50g carbs. I try to eat a slightly larger meal for my first real meal after working out. I take a multi and a ZMA.

Status of my program: I've been working out for about 11 months now and have seen some really impressive gains, both my strength and physique have really been improved. Past few months I've been starting to see my gains slow, guess that's normal though. I've been in a bulk phase for about 2 weeks.

Worked out my chest today, this tends to be my most lagging body part. Compared to my squat and my deadlift my bench press hasn't gone very far since I started working out. My goals right now is to bench 225 for 6 reps before the end of summer. My mood going in was somewhat tired and stressed out from studying.

Flat dumbell press (I know I said my goal is to bench 225, but I hit a plateau on the bench and have been doing dumbell presses for the past few weeks)
45 Lbs x 8 reps
80x8
80x8
85x5
85x5 (failed in the middle to upper range)

Decline barbell bench press
165x7
165x6
165x7

Incline dumbell press
70x7
70x6
70x7
Comment on this, I used to do incline before decline until last week. When I did that I could do 70 for 9 reps. It's hard to believe adding decline before it would make it that much weaker...

Incline flies
35x10
40x8
40x8
40x8

Pullovers
95x8
95x8
95x7

Then 6 sets of ab work...

Remarks: I went up slightly from last week, not in weight but in the number of reps on the declinem, incline and pullovers. I was also making more of an effort to go down all the way on the incline and flat bench press.
