    Good luck with your recovery mate, and yes you do need to eat more.

    No breakfast! Slap yourself for me.

    here is a quick run through of my weekly routine, feel free to chip in and add pointers.

    Chest and shoulders

    flat bb bench 3 x 8
    incline flyes 3 x 8
    decline flyes 3 x 8
    should i swap bb for dumbells bench ? a lot easier on the shoulder, and add some dips ( last time tried dips managed 3 then came the pain, was a while ago tho)
    behind the head shoulder press 3 x 8
    seated overhead db press 3 x 8
    lateral raises 3 x 8
    vertical rows ?? 3 x 8
    sometimes do shrugs


    Back and arms

    deadlifts 1 warm up set, 4 x 6 working sets
    single arm seated rows(not cable) 3 x 8
    lat pull downs 3 x 8
    cable rows 3 x 8
    incline db curls 3 x 8
    seated hammer curls 3 x 8
    flat/decline skulls (E-Z bar) 3 x 8
    overhead single db press 3 x 8
    tri push downs(cable) 3 x 8


    legs and abs

    squats 1 warm up set 3 x 8 working sets
    45 degree leg press 3 x 8
    leg extension 3 x 8
    ham curls 3 x 8
    cant do calf raises due to foot injury-i keep trying to take all the weight on my right as the left only has 2 toes that really move so theres this m/c you sit at and kinda press a small plate away with the balls of your feet 3 x 8

    3/4 sets of 10/12 weighted decline sit ups/crunches

    and that just about sums it up, i do substitute exercises sometimes if its really busy and looks like a long wait for some equipment but i try for a like for like swap.

    As for diet heres what ive eaten today

    2 ham and mustard sandwiches and packet of crisps (very rare for me too eat crisps) and a yoghurt
    chicken and mushroom flavour pasta in sauce
    pkt or dry roast nuts to go with my pint of water in the pub.

    ive been off work today though so this is a little less than i'd normally eat, although not by a great deal, now ive seen it actually written down its no wonder im not getting any bigger, no food in the house so im off for a bowl of cornflakes then bed.

    well new yr is almost upon us, tomorrow i have an appointment at the docs to get some nicotene patches on prescription, i have given up smoking before (albeit for about 8 weeks), i cant wait to taste what food really tatses like again !!
    i have been pondering over my routine, and am wondering if it would be better to 5x5, rather than the 3x8's, but i really need to get something concrete written down to stop me from swapping exercises as often, ie i am going to do what is written before me, period.
    Also when i next get paid i think i will invest in james's e-book as my diet will be the decidng factor, people who see me every 4-6 weeks are noticing changes in my body ie grabbing my arms or feeling my chest or legs and commenting, but i know if i ate enough and clean then the results would be better still. i have gained a bit of additional round the waist this last 4 weeks or so due to bacon and cheese viennas and general other ****e i started to eat, as i talked myself into 'anyfood is better then no food'.
    I play outdoor 7 a side football on a monday night, and am going to introduce a 45 mins cardio session on a wed night in the very near future, so this 'additional' wont be lasting long !!

    forgot to add i took some measurements last night for the first time, will take some more in 3 months to see what gains.

    wrist 6 1/2"
    forearm 11 1/2"
    bi's 14" [V][V][V]
    calves 14 1/4"
    quads 21 1/4"
    neck 15"

    tape is an xmas crcker one so only 25"long, so cant do chest/waist.
    waist wise 30" pants are ok, not uncomfortable but nothing spare, and 32" is belt required else they can be pulled down[:p].
    i know pant sizes arent much to go off so will get a longer tape and post waist and chest later.

    saturday woke up and headed for the gym, checked the mail box- CoC 1 has arrived !!!!!
    trained legs 5x5 for first time this morning
    Squats
    leg press
    extension
    ham curl
    calves
    didnt do any other body part to catch up for this last week as its a pretty manual job and am going to try find a gym for this next 2-3 weeks while im away.
    Food intake was pretty low for saturday, far too low infact.
    When i got home i unwrapped the Coc, managed to close it with my right hand once and my left hand.........none can get them to parallel or just past for about 5-6 times with right hand and just about to parallel with left. Quite pleased really although my hands are a bit sore this morning, but im looking forward to working up to considering a #2 although im not sure how long this will take.

    sunday
    had i nice deserved lie in, food wise a couple of slices of toast this morning, and to me folks for a sunday dinner, not worked out what else i shall eat today yet.
    Not had any whey shakes for a few days - i kinda miss them [:p]

    My time working away is thankfully cut short, although i will miss the steaks and chocolate fudge cake/profiter roles from the hotel[:p]
    Training wise has been slacking as i have only been able to make weekends for the past couple of weeks, although sat i set a pb on leg press and tonight (tue) i attempted the next set of db's and got a good set of 6 out - last rep was slightly assisted but im very pleased as last time a picked up this weight the shoulder i damaged told me to put it straight back down again.
    Also very pleased with not having a cig for 2 weeks, 4 main areas ive noticed improvements are - when i wake up i feel fresh rather than need an extra hr to properly wake, i dont stink of cig smoke all the time, food is beginning to taste better/different and mr jingles jingly bits seem to have been given a new lease of life as well

    quote:
    flat bb bench 3 x 8
    incline flyes 3 x 8
    decline flyes 3 x 8

    I'd use dumbbells for the bench and swap one of the flyes with dips.
    quote:
    behind the head shoulder press 3 x 8
    seated overhead db press 3 x 8
    lateral raises 3 x 8
    vertical rows ?? 3 x 8
    sometimes do shrugs

    I'd just do 5 sets of db press and perhaps a few sets of raises. Drop the rows, shrugs and behind the head press.
    quote:
    deadlifts 1 warm up set, 4 x 6 working sets
    single arm seated rows(not cable) 3 x 8
    lat pull downs 3 x 8
    cable rows 3 x 8

    Do chins instead of pull downs. Barbell rows would be better than cable rows.
    quote:
    incline db curls 3 x 8
    seated hammer curls 3 x 8

    I'd do standing barbell curls instead of the db curls.
    quote:
    flat/decline skulls (E-Z bar) 3 x 8
    overhead single db press 3 x 8
    tri push downs(cable) 3 x 8

    Move to chest/shoulder day. Do 3 sets of dips or close grip bench and drop the db press and push downs.
    quote:
    squats 1 warm up set 3 x 8 working sets
    45 degree leg press 3 x 8
    leg extension 3 x 8
    ham curls 3 x 8

    drop the leg extensions, it's useless. Do stiff leg deadlifts instead of ham curls. Perhaps do some front squats instead of leg press.

    DMPM-cheers for your input mate, much appreciated.
    funnily enough my tue workout i had already dropped the decline flyes for dips, not got a belt or anything so were unweighted, and dropped bench press in favour of DB'S.
    Also on the tue i said to my training partner i was swapping lat pull downs for chins on the thur (tonights) routine, these were slightly assisted for now, shant be long till im doing them free.
    I'd decided to try a 5x5 routine this year, although it flits between 5x5 and 4x6 depending on time and energy levels.
    DL's tonight i pissed my current max, didnt go any heavier as ive not been for 2 weeks and with it being a newish exercise for me didnt want to injure anything.
    Arms wise im not sure which way to go, im considering swapping a dumbell curl for pull ups, i suppose i could alternate pull ups/barbell curl.
    Also a question on my mind is whether to start to train alone or not, motivation wise it will work against me, im just feeling more and more pissed off as time goes by, at saying why im not going on the pec dec, why i dont want to bench on a smiths, why im not doing cable cross overs, only to here here snide comments when i want to try a bit more on DL's or leg press etc.

    Good going on the ciggies mate, i gave up "again" last Sept when i made decision to get into shape- had very few cravings since as the bb/diet is just too important for me to start again, what are your stats and goals btw?
