Well its about time, I made it offical by starting a Journey. This journey will have my random thoughts, product reviews (animal of course), and as well as my struggles to acheive my bulking goal.

Current Stats:
5'10
163-167lbs
23 years old
Been lifting 2 years

My goal is to be 185lbs (my magic number, dont ask, because I dont know, just felt achievable)

Goal was to start a non-haronmal bulk shooting for 185, I have/had 5 months.
The math behind the plan 1lbs a week x 4 weeks x 5 months = 20 hard earned pounds.

Supplements:
M-stak (1 can down, 1 more to go)
Pump (truely amazing stuff)
Pak (love this stuff)
Whey Protein (need some gainer)
Casesin Protein

Aimming for 3500-4000 cals currently, Will keep updated on diet and workout log, plus random thoughts throughout life!!!

BTW: animal forum rocks!

Today was a ultra slow day at work (I do sales), I couldn't wait to get to the gym and start throwing some weight around.

Diet today was terrible but very high in calories!! (go dirty buik!)
wake up: granola bar 180 calories
mid morning: smoothie king hulk 32 oz
lunch: half a hamburger pizza
evening: 10 oz chicken
after workout: 16oz milk, honey bunchs oaks
before bed: casein protein shake

Today was ARMs (Worked out late 7:30pm) Took pump 30 mins prior, still feeling the pump.

Biceps:
Straight Bar Curls 70x11, 70x10, 80x10
Incline DB Curls 30x10, 30x10, 30x10
Straight Bar Cable Curl 90x10, 100x10, 100x10

Dips (body weight x 15), (body weight x 12), (body weight x 11)

Tomorrow, Im going to pick up some weight gainer protein (ran out a few days ago). Also plan in the morning is to pack lunch for tomorrow, so I can save money and still eat correctly.

**** This is my 2nd day off mstak, but still using pump for pre-workout**** I can say I still felt a incredible pump, and I'm stronger and actually feel harder then 2 weeks ago. Maybe its mental.

yesterday I didnt sleep much, maybe 6hrs of sleep, and my sister backed into my car yesterday morning. So the day was pretty much shot from early morning. I did get a chance to pickup some weight gainer and some creatine mono for off days.

Recap of yesterday: Yesterday was an off day, Doing a 4 day split this week.
day 1 Chest/abs
day 2 Arms
day 3 back/shoulders
day 4 legs

Diet yesterday consisted of:
morning - garanola bar with yogurt with casein shake
mid morning - 2 slices old hamburger pizza leftovers
lunch - arbys chicken sandwitch
late lunch - protein shake
evening - creatine mono shake
evening - 3 egg whites with 3 whole eggs, with turkey and cheese.

again, I know im not on the cleanest diet, but Im not exactly throwing the fat on currently, well see when i start taking 1000 calories of weight gainer a day on top of my whole food diet.

Today is a good day, back/shoulders!! pretty stoked...

until then-

The weekend was my off day. I consumed roughly 3000cals each day.

Weight Today: 165.8lbs

This morning was my chest/forearm workout. It went pretty well. I think I overslept, I didnt have very much engery today even with PUMP, and starting back M-Stak.

Workout:
Chest -
Flat Bench Dumbbell - 60x14, 65x11, 70x9
Isoslated Wide Bench Machine - 140x12, 160x10, 180x9
Isoslated Incline Bench Machine - 140x8, 130x9, 130x9
Flat Bench Dumbbell Flys SS push ups - 40x10 (14push ups), 40x10, (12push ups) 40x9 (11push ups)

Dont know what they are called, but i did 7 sets of forearm workouts.

Will update diet at the end of the day.

Overall, I feel like im getting leaner, My chest/arms are getting larger but Im getting leaner. I feel I need to eat even more!! Going to try to eat 4 whole food meals with 3 shakes a day.

Im going to buy a tape measure today, and start measuring every 2 weeks. So I can verify "getting larger."
