Default twombles62 log

So I thought I'd start a log. Might update this sporadically but we will see, as I don't keep a physical log.

About me: 23 Male from Australia.
6'2 185lbs. Been lifting seriously for about a year. Biggest idol is Steve Reeves, definitely.

At the moment I'm doing the Reeves inspired workout from Bodybuilding.com with one or two slight changes, but almost to the letter.

I'm currently about 12% bodyfat, I think. Can see veins in shoulders/arms but only the top 2 abs, and some definition in legs when I flex.

Pretty sick of cutting for the last 3 months or so on 1800/2200 (rest/lift days) calories I'm considering bumping calories up to maintenance (2600) then slowly increasing to build some more muscle with as little fat as possible.

My press numbers, especially overhead/shoulders are weak. I had a broken collarbone a few years ago and I think it's healed in a way that restricts my movement/power overhead.

Decided to do the log in a book that I can fill out between sets. Easier that way.

6 month update:

Weight: 208.5 lbs
Calories: 2800 -> 3050
Bodyfat (estimate): probably around 15%. More definition than at 3 months ago but I think I underestimated it back then.

Routine pretty much unchanged throughout:
Tuesday
Squats 5x5
DB overhead press 3x10
Dips 3x10
BB Rows 3x10
Curls 3x10
Pushdowns 3x10
Abs 3x12
Calves 2x15
Back hyperextension 2x12

Thursday
Squats 5x5
BB OHP 3x10
Bench 3x10
DB Rows 3x10
Curls 3x10
Lying triceps extension 3x10
Abs
Calves 2x15
Hyperextension

Saturday
Deadlifts 3x5
DB OHP 3x10
DB Incline press 3x10
Pullups 2x10
Curls 3x10
CGBP 3x10
Abs
Calves 2x15


Planning on cutting down for 8-10 weeks to ~10% bodyfat on about 2250 cals a day, possibly starting in another fortnight. Might look at dropping some volume (especially in the triceps movements).
