Happymudder10's workout log

I've been a little more active on this forum and figured I'd start my own workout log.

A little background, in 1992 when I started playing high school football, my coach told me I needed to gain 20 lbs. He told me to hit the gym and eat all the pasta and ice cream I could eat. That worked fine for the next four years wile I was in my mid-late teens and into working out and sports.

Then came college............

Goodbye working out and sports; hello beer, liquor, and junk food!

I quickly gained a bunch of fat and it was a downward spiral from there. At 31 I was weighing 285 lbs and I had a heart attack. That was a real kick in the ***! But I learned from my mistakes.

I immersed myself in nutrition books / websites. I have consulted with dieticians, personal trainers, and doctors. I learned how to eat. As soon as I was medically cleared to exercise, I started running. (I HATE RUNNING!) I didn't want to sign up in a gym for fear that I would not follow through and lose my money.

So my wife went and bought me P90X. After the first month I could definitely see little changes, by the end of the 90 days I could REALLY see changes. (Not like the photos they put on the infomercial, but you could notice I work out). So I did it again, and again, and again, and again......

I got to the point that I did not even need the DVD, I knew everything Tony Horton was going to say (even the stupid jokes).

Well, finally I got to the point that P90X wasn't doing it for me anymore. I changed my diet again and started eating super clean. I had dropped to 175 lbs and even my wife told me I was too skinny!

So I recently decided to join the local gym and bulk up. My goal is to gain 10 lbs of lean muscle by Christmas. I am eating between 3000 - 3400 calories a day with a 35% - 40% - 25% macro split.

My workout days are as follows:
Mon. - Chest
Tue. - Back
Wed. - Legs
Thu. - Shoulders
Fri. - Arms

I work out at 5:00am for a little over 1 hr. (including warmup and stretch)
In the afternoons when I get home from work, I do a little cardio, usually jump rope, sprints, or ride bike. I only do about 15-20 mins because I am trying to bulk.

I am going to give myself a rest / recovery week next week and just do light cardio, then I'll be back to lifting the week after.

Nice man! Keep up the good work. The one thing I'm worried about with college, is that I won't workout and I'll drink too much. Hopefully I can stay fit.

I'll be following this for sure.
