time to give cutting a try for the first time

hey fellas,

just been training the usual thought id write a small update, currently weighing around 91kg not feeling too good about my stomach so im trying to do cardio after my routines 30 minutes each day for now until i get used to it,
will be trying this for 12 weeks, always wanted to measure my bodyfat% happened to find out today my gym has some sort of machine for this and this was the result

I've been told this isnt 100% accurate but gives me a rough idea of where im at, this was after my back/bicep routine hoping after about 12 weeks to be around 8%
Also i just purchased a new pre workout supplement called APS Mesomorph so i will let you guys know how it is after a few weeks of how it feels.

new personal best's

whats up everyone

hope everyone has been pushing themselfs as much as possible, ive only tried setting a higher bar as of last week and ive reached a little bit higher, just because i dont know weather to keep eating heavy or if its time to cut carbs and get a bit leaner cause summer will be here in november and im hopeless with cardio, anyway my little achievements are 

145kg /319lb7  deadlifts 

45kg/100lb db bench press - can probably get 110/120 next week if i eat right 

36kg/80lb db shoulder press 

40kg/88lb E-Z bar bicep curls

78kg/171lb tricep pressdowns - should aim more on CGBP 

mind you their all consistant not 1rm

getting back on track

Hey guys,

just been playing around with my training plan eating as much as I can,
trying not to count down the days but make the days count! ive resorted my training plan, also today I had my back day, with supplements i was able to do my max deadlifts exactly the same with no assist of the belt.

New routine
Day 1: Legs
Day 2: Chest / Triceps
Day 3: Back / Biceps
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Arms

Also purchased some knee wraps this week to see if they can assist my right knee as it is hurting during my heavy sets of squats, if they dont work out il just give them to the next girl whos willing to get on her knees etc

Also heress a pic ive put on about 3kg and supplements give a bit of pump too

Update of supplements / intake.

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is still going strong, getting bigger stronger and faster, ive been able to keep the same weight and stats of lifting without supplements lately, only cause i order my stuff off ebay and i got scammed by one seller and the other just took a long time, got all my stuff this week so i thought i would post it up,

Also got an injury i think on my right knee, during squats im getting a bit of pain so i may give it a miss for a few weeks then try again once i have some wraps to support them

basicly this is what im having each day from now on, plus i got some glutamine 1500 today from a local chemist, also taking multivitamins and vitamin C

oN Hydro Whey Protein (Chocolate) - tastes decent dissolves well, low on calories and easy to drink

oN Gold Standard Casein Protein (Chocolate) - doesn't dissolve too easy in water, taste is pretty average, ends up in chunks unless you shake it VERY well or blend it, overall its tolerable but pretty iffy

Jack3d - one of my fav pre workout sups, this is a new formula i normally get grape but they sent this by mistake, tried it today still dissolves easily felt activation within 20-40 minutes, tastes decent helps you get through though heavy sets where you feel you cant make it.

Mucletech Cell-Tech Pro Series (blue raspberry) - normally when i think of raspberry i think of a good taste, this taste like crap wouldnt recommend it, ive been having it for a little while now so my taste buds are used to it, can feel activation around 30 minutes after consumed, does make you want to take a dump sometimes

basicly haven't posted in a long while cause iv'e had a lot go on in my life in the past month so just making the days count, hopefully with the supplements i'l be back on track to improvement, i want to reach 90kg/198lb before october then cut down for summer.

Ongoing fight

hey guys, havnt been posting lately just been lazy really, trying to force my squats and deads up, squats are giving my right knee pains so i think i will get some wraps sometime this week to support that, also ive reached a new level with deads thanks to using a belt! it felt like i could do this at ease but the only issue is i cant get a stronger grip which is holding me back! anyway heres a pic to make everyone happy

fight to keep motivated

Hey guys havnt forgotten about this blog thing just havnt really posted up much since hanh doesnt really do many updates anymore which has kind of made me lose slight motivation as silly as that sounds.

About two weeks ago i got an injury doing SLDL's in the lower back, went to the doctors and they classed it to be a stress fracture in the lower back which made me take 5 days off gym, they recommended a fortnight to recover but i couldnt keep away that much, went through this week as per normal but when it came to back workout just made deadlifts much lighter, also with my routine throughout the week ive taken day 4 out instead of cardio ive seperated my day 5 which was shoulders / back.

Ive been realizing recently my weak points for building at this point are my arms, so im trying my best to get this up to scratch with the rest of my current physique, also another thing is that my shoulders are getting DOMS when i work them hard so that is something else i have to overcome,

will post again soon guys

start to a long journey

Hi guys thought id make a blog to keep track of where im at in life,

not quite sure if anyone will read this other than myself not that it really matters to be honest, anyway moving on
date is 27 jan 2011 11:32pm in Australia AEST10+ and heres a little bio about myself
name: David
age :20
weight: 85kg/187lb
bf%: unsure? never knew how to measure
dietary: well food isnt a strong point of mine, used to be very picky didnt eat vegetables much, starting as of this year, mostly keep around beef, steak, chicken, mince and dairy

Heres a picture of my upper body 21/03/2010
rear 21/03/2010, think its the picture that made my body look like a very different proportion

most recent pictures from 5/01/2011 at 85kg / 187lbs

anyway the point of this is blog is for me to have somewhere to host up pictures of what im eating, what i looked like at this time of the year so i have something to look at so il definately be taking snaps with my iphone of my lunch and stuff more often. Ive been training for about a year now, started around jan-feb 2010 just felt the need to occupy my free time with sometime for filling now it just feels like a hobby, natural even. last year i never took any type of supplements started off at 73kg and went up to 87 around october, cut down to 82kg around november and as of december/jan I decided il try something different this year

The current supplements im taking are
Optimum Nutrition Hydro Whey Chocolate, tastes ok for something done with water, imagine it would be better with milk if wanting to bulk but if that was the goal you would be using something different...
Super pump 250, its not too bad i got the orange flavor, a lot of artificial coloring and such, it does the job i guess until i discovered this 

last of all Jack3d, just got this on 26/1/11, arrived at the doorstep which happened to be same day as when i do chest work, this year ive realized its a real weak point for me and i thought id give this a try and i couldnt believe how much pump i got! really made a difference
Add caption
i guess my goals for the future is just push myself to my limits and see how far i can get, if i will keep going till im too old and frail or lose interest ? either way im in this for the long run and wont be giving up anytime soon,
anyway thats all for now, would appreciate any kind opinions or feedback, would also like to see others blogs! take care.
