The Hal Moore progress journal

Hello all. I am starting a journal so everyone can see how i progress. this is my current workout: Tuesday, thursday and sunday: evrything is each arm
5x5 dumbell curls 9 kilos, soon to change when i buy 45 kilo barbell, dumbbell set
5x10 tricep curl things (dont know name), 4.5 kilo again soon to change
5x20 pull overs, 4.5 kilo
5x20 crunches
5x20 trap lift things (dont know name) 16 kilo.

These are my not too acurrate measurements, to be confirmed every wednesday

Height: 5ft 10"
weight: 140 pounds
upper arms: 12 "
forearms: ?
chest: 35"
waist: 30"
thighs: 20"
calves: 14.25 "

As you can see this need's work, and my workout is testing and i think i can see visible muscle gain, esp on arms and pecs. I will update this journal after every measuring session and every change of weight i work etc etc

    hello there

    would stongly suggest:

    1) ditching that routine and using a different one
    2) putting your progress journal in the section labelled 'progress journals'

    have a look in the 'bodybuilding routines' section at the 'members routines - post yours' thread for some ideas on routine.

    there should be no "may" about it dude, seriously. are you not gonna train leg or back or even chest for that matter?

    have you read cashmans routine for beginners at the top of the beginner section?

    i'm not sure how much your measurements are gonna change week in week out. you might feel better measuring every month as you'll notice a bigger change.

    goodluck anyway

    start - 8 stone 7 lbs

    There has been alot of debates about pull overs - IIRC the general opinion is that they don't do much at all (thats my opinion too) they are certainly not a good mass builder for pecs.

    well without good nutrition you'll find gains come alot slower if at all. in some cases you may even get smaller. have a good read through the diet and nutrition section. basically eat little and often. lotsa protein from meats/fish etc, carbs -rice/pasta/potatoes what have you. fats also, nut's being my favourite option. really man diet is the hardest part IMO. someone more experienced will surely help you out with this.

    Right, i have taken the advice of many more wise people than myself and ditched the above workout. Instead i will now be doing a four day split

    Mondays: Chest/triceps
    Wednesdays: Back/biceps
    Fridays: legs/calves/abs
    Sundays: Shoulders/traps

    this will remain my spilt for a good while but the the number of reps and weights i am lifting are temporary as i am soon purchasing heavier barbells and dumbbells

    Chest/triceps- 5x20 Dumbbell press (4.5 kilo each arm)
    5x20 pullovers (" " " ")
    5x20 fly (" " " ")
    5x20 one arm tricep extension (" " " ")
    5x20 lying tricep extension (" " " ")
    5xfailure press ups (i can do around 60)

    Back/Biceps 5x20 bent over row
    5x20 lying row
    5x10 curls (9 kilo each arm)
    5x20 wrist curls

    Legs/Calves/Abs 5x10 squat
    5x10 lunge
    5x20 straight back straight leg deadlift (9 kilo)
    5x20 crunches
    5X20 weighted calf raises

    Shoulders/traps 5x20 shrugs (16 kilos)
    5x20 Front raise (9 kilos)
    5x20 Dumbbell shoulder press


    Feedback???????????????????????????????????????????

    Where did you get the rep ranges from? - 20 reps is far to many for gaining strength and size!
    what makes you think you can curl twice as much as you can press?
    How much weight do you have in total? I think your gonna need more!

    Today was my first day on the new workout, i did chest/triceps and my tri's are aching but the chest never aches. any ideas??????? also my left pec is much stronger than my right, anybody know why?????

    Anyway i managed to do the workout's up until lying tricep extension, i only managed 10 per set. Also i could not possibly do the press-ups so i may do these before the one arm tricep extension's. Anyway, i will leave you until my next workout on wednesday.
    Ciao

    Everyone is like that initially Hal. Its more a coordination thing if you ask me, It won't take long for you to even out. Just keep training and stop when you reach failure with your weaker side. For excercise where you work one side independently of the other (DB rows for example) make sure you train your weaker side first so you know how many reps to do with your stronger side.

    Right i am a day late due to a virus on my p.c but here goes:

    Yesterday was back and bicep day, i did the bent over rows no problem (a sign i need much bigger weights) but decided to leave out the lying row's, then on to the bicep, i decided to do 3x8 with 10.1 kilos on each arm or 22.2 kilos. I managed one set fine, could only do six the second set and did 5 in the next two sets, so work to be done, also couldnt be bothered doin the wrist curls, might do next week though. This all resulted in a 20 minute workout, but my biceps now measure 12.5 " compared to 12" last week and my strength is increasing all the time so i'm happy :) Anyway i will post after tomorrow's workout so see ya then folks.

    Oh and another thing, i am gaining muscle but not weight, any idea's???????????
    Thanks

    12 inches to 12.5 inches in one week?

    did you measure your arms directly after training them? it's not that i don't believe you, it just sounds..well....not normal.

    as for gaining muscle but not weight, that could be due to you gaining muscle and maybe losing some fat

    Firstly, i need to correct myself, not 12.5", 12.25" sorry and it was the day after, which is when i usually measure, secondly i dont see how i lost weight, i am skinny anyway and have almost no fat on me, its weird, after a workout i tip 140 lbs, then the next day its gone down 3 or 4 lbs

    do you weigh yourself at the same time everyday? it's best to weigh yourself when you wake up after you've been to the bog and done the business. that way it's more accurate
