    Workout log?

    I often see guys with their books in the gym and I respect what they are doing , but I really feel that wouldnt work for me.
    Everyday I go there I feel different and sometimes I want to add more weight and do lower reps, other days I may do more sets.
    So if I were to put it in a book the results would be all over the place.
    All I know is when I have a good session I should either feel dizzy or like throwing up.

    If I had a book I would probably try to cheat and the form would go out the window.

    Great post but give credit where credit is due, many of those are Arnold's words from his bodybuilding book.

    I gotta say I just re read this after a year off (of the forums) and its amazing how good this post is. I was just texting a buddy about trying to get my workout back right and this thread saved me quite a bit of time and im sure effort in the gym, I had forgotten how much I had forgotten

    Giving respect where its due. +1

    Training Intervals

    How often should you train bi's per week? Also does this differ when you are on or off?

    Good evening everyone.

    I am 43 yrs old, 6'3 1/2 350 lbs BF% 41, low cholesterol and blood pressure. My goal are to get to 235, lose this spare tire, tone up, and inrease my strength. My previous max on the bench press was 315, when I was in the military doing pt on a regular basis. Now, my max is about 235. Diet wise I plan on keeping it simple, oatmeal & eggs in the morning, 3 meals consisting of 2 chicken breasts and asparagus, and two protein shakes per day. I would like advice on the ULTIMATE BEGINNER'S workout plan. If I've posted this in the wrong place, please accept my apologies. If you would like to recommend a supplement plan, or stack for me, that is much appreciated. If you don't think I need a stack, please let me know that as well. I know how to workout using military bodyweight exercises but have been increasing my weightlifting knowledge. Thank you in advance to all who are willing to offer me advice. I have thick skin, so please don't be afraid to talk direct with me. Thank you.

    Good post very informative. Yes the information has been covered in other resources but that’s good. It shows that the information is accurate. Also being able to read the information multiple times in different resources helps to reinforce our learning.

We look sometimes so much for the advanced training principles that we lose sight of what got us so excited about training in the first place.
    Once again, good read.
    I went to a nutrition store and they hooked me up to this machine that said my resting calorie usage per day was 2200 cals. they said for me to get the best gains I would need 4000-4500 cals. I am running cyp and deca 2 ml of each a week. I started out at 190 at 11% body fat. 12 weeks later im 220 and at 17% body fat. I want to get under 10% so how can I trim the fat without losing the cals I need for great gains. my diet is simple, no fast food, nothing other than lean meats, oats, fruits and vegs and protein shakes. I probably get 1000 cals from milk a day atleast.

    Thank you for the post. It helps to get back to basics. I was at a plateau for a while and it's more mental and diet than anything else, in my case.

    Thanks, I've definitely found a lot of benefit in keeping a simple workout log on my smart phone. Weight, rep, set, bmi, body fat. I try to keep it simple and do mostly 5x5 training and plenty of cardio. I'm new at this so simple is better for me.
