Day In Review

Did Chest/Triceps today. My arms are disproportionately big, and I'm probably going to just stop doing them all together soon. Heavy compound movements will keep them in check, and proportionality is, above all else, the name of the game. Bench was repped at 165 for 5-7 reps. This should be at 7-9 next workout.

Everyone always warns against overtraining. All I ever read is " muscles need ample rest, overtraining is a common mistake, make sure not to overtrain, etc etc". Well, it  is working very well for me. I'm up to 144 or so after lifting 2-3 hours per day.

My two rules:
1. Every body part must be in a constant state of soreness.
2. I must never be hungry.

150 is in the horizon. Until then!..

About to go eat, work, then workout. Gotta do it big like Manny Fresh.

 I'm starting this blog for two reasons:
1. I want to properly track my workout journey.
2. I want to feel accountability for my lifting life via other people seeing my progress.

I've worked out on and off for 5 years now. Unfortunately, I am impressively inconsistent, and thus have a pretty awful progress history. I started lifting in 11th grade at 5'9 125 lb, got up to 160, and am currently at 5'9 140 lb.

I have the ultimate skinny genes. I am almost never hungry, and have an awfully quick metabolism. While I'm sure this sounds like a blessing to many of you, it certainly isn't when friends talk about how your wrists look like they can be snapped like twigs, or when hugging the girl you like,  she tells you it feels like shes hugging herself. I honestly have the thinnest limbs and waist of any guy I know. I almost never enjoy eating, as I am forced to consistently shove food into my mouth throughout the day to try to gain/maintain my weight. If I were to live normally, as in eating to my own comfort, I'd be back at 130 lb in a month. What bothers me most of all though, ironically, is that I know this kind of force feeding is unhealthy. In fact, the body is way more healthier when in a state of consistent slight-hunger, and its when I'm actually hungry that I feel the most alert and driven. When I'm old and don't give a shit about being strong/getting laid, I'm probably going to be a vegetarian/fruit freak. 

Now that you know a little bit about me, you can follow my journey. My goal is to hit 150lb in 3 months. I also want to see +20lb gains to my squats, bench, and deadlift. I'll be uploading pictures when I get the chance.
