Well, I've been thinking about starting one of those for some time.
I probably should have started this earlier, but late is better than never.
I'm 5'9 and 21 years old.
Last 28.November I weighed 174lbs and was 15.8% bodyfat.
And then me and my 'trainer' (he doesn't train with me, just gave me advice) agreed that a reasonable goal would be go get to 185lbs in three months.
Today is 9. Feb and yesterday I was half a pound away from my goal, that is 184.5lbs.
But I'm interested to see what the ratio of muscle/fat this gain is so as soon as I've reached my goal I will have my body fat checked, hopefully this week.
This is my training routine.
Day 1 - Legs
Day 2 - Shoulders/Calves
Day 3 - Triceps/Biceps
Day 4 - Back
Day 5 - Chest
I usually get 2 rest days a week, and I don't schedule them ahead of time, if I don't feel like going to the gym, I don't go.
And the reason that I don't assaign a special weekday to each bodypart is that when I used to do that I tended to skip a muscle group if I couldn't go to the gym on that particular day. So I think this works better for me.
I do about 3-4 sets with around 8 reps for each musclegroup.
I never train for more than an hour, often about 40min.
This might be confusing and uninteresting to read, but I hope this will keep me motivated to keep on training
