2010: The Beginning
 
Hey guys,
I have changed my routine I will be posting all accomplishments here now. I talked with Steve and he gave me a very good intermidiate routine to try out.

It has an A day and a B day... Each day has 5 exercises. He said to pick a heavy weight that I can build on. Starting with a goal of 20 reps per set. With 3 sets each exercise. Do as many reps as possible per set until all sets add up to 20 reps. Then add enough weight to build on again.

Workout A
Squats
Calve Raises
Stiff Leg Dead Lifts
Bench Press
Bentover Rows

Workout B
Dead Lifts
Front & Back Overhead Press
DB or BB Curls
Close Grip Bench Press
Ab Work (incline situps or Leg Lifts)

My goals are to get big and and strong.

Exercise:..............6 months...............12 months
SQUATS: . . . . . . . . . . 270 . . . . . . . . . . . . .360
BENCH PRESS:. . . . . . 200 . . . . . . . . . . . . .275
DEAD LIFTS: . . . . . . . .300 . . . . . . . . . . . . 435
OVERHEAD PRESS: . . . 130 . . . . . . . . . . . . 170

Those are good starting numbers, especially on barbell rows. Just keep hard at it one rep at a time, and you'll smash your goals.

Thanks BTB, That is what I meant when I said that I need to even out my strengths.

Thanks LHR, I thought my goals were a little high to start off with. I guess I will have to see how fast I start adding weight.

Your numbers are looking good Jhuse. You're only a stone's throw away from 2 plates on the overhead presses.
