I did a similar thing for years, with a few changes.

- 2+ raw eggs, shells washed free range
- 50g protein powder
- 1 huge spoon of peanut butter
- from 0 to 1 cup of raw cooking oats depending on carbs wanted
- few grams of creatine mono if you want
- hersheys choc syrup to taste (sugar free if you want)

I didn't put in glutamine b/c I feel it's useless, except for giving me room clearing gas.

Goals. Would like to finally press 200. Was knocking on that door before injury. Would like to rep squats at 405 and hit the prowler at least once a week. Most importantly id like to stay injury free and have fun.

My goal: Gain some respectable weight by the time warmer weather comes around. (Walked to the gym in 7*F temps this morning )

This morning's workout:

Dumbbell Bench Press:
25 lb x 10 reps (+43 pts)
30 lb x 10 reps (+47 pts)
35 lb x 8 reps (+48 pts)
35 lb x 7 reps (+47 pts)
35 lb x 7 reps (+47 pts) - PR

Dumbbell Flyes:
20 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
25 lb x 10 reps (+18 pts)
25 lb x 10 reps (+18 pts)
25 lb x 10 reps (+18 pts) - Same as last week, time to bump up to 30.

Close Grip Pull-Up:
10 reps (+34 pts)
8 reps (+25 pts)
5 reps (+13 pts)

Dips - Chest Version:
10 reps (+17 pts)
7 reps (+11 pts)
5 reps (+7 pts)

Dips and pull-ups are just accessories, and the reps are sporadic since I do these after everything else, so those are not definitely done at my peak ability.

BW: 120

I kinda want to participate in this thread, for group support. However, I'm not doing the major lifting you guys are. I'm doing 3x a week alternating lower/upper body strength training, 2x a week HIIT cardio and 6-7x a week Pure Barre workouts. (So, basically 2-a-day workouts).

The barre workouts being, by far, the most challenging. My January goals for that are:

-Move up to the heavier set of weights by the end of the month for the arm portion
-Get through the thighs and arse workouts without lifting out of my stance.

I know, girly, but whatever. **** is harder than you think, trust me.

Thanks! I should note, too, this isn't a "resolution" - I've been doing the strength and cardio for a while now. The barre stuff is new.

If you're hitting 315 x 10, you're probably benching a little more than 405.

Shark, check out the facebook group, "Fierce. Fit. Fearless." You don't have to workout nearly as much as you just stated, and you can get great returns by lifting heavy - you won't get "bulky." The group is full of real women (like my wife, mother of two, mid 30s) who have gotten amazing results (see: losing body fat, gaining muscle and flexibility) by lifting heavy with both the weights and the fork.

The longer we keep lifting, the more we realize we're just doing it so we can stuff our faces all the time.

Probably. Just a rep goal I have always wanted to accomplish.

Thanks, I'll check it out. I'm more or less trying this 30 day, 2x a day thing just to see how my body responds. I'm just curious what sort of results I'll see. If any.

I basically do a Body-for-Life type plan when it comes to weights. I've been happy with the structure it provides, and efficiency of the workout, and my ability to see progress. But, I realise, though, variety is key to keep muscles guessing.

The Pure Barre is a whole other level of workout, though. I've never done anything like it and the intensity of the movements, even though they are small, teeny-tiny little "up an inch, down an inch," is like nothing I've ever experienced. I've see it bring Crossfitters down in the first 15 minutes. I'm totally addicted to it.

Squat
255 X 5

Deadlift
255 X 5 (I don't know why my bench and squat are the same?)

Military Press
105 X 5

Still working on my form because its crappy. I lean back too much when I come up.

Bw

Goals for 2013:
Continue SS until I stop seeing strength progress.

Squat
350 X 1

Deadlift

Military press 150 X 1

Bw 180 (low bf %)

I have been strength training for 4 months now. I got tired of looking like a tooth pic and of being pushed around on the soccer field. Yes, believe it or not, soccer requires strength too. I will be playing soccer at a college level on August and I want to be ready for it.
I want to set my goals hard enough, but i want them to be realistic too. I am 19 years old 5'9.

Very motivated the next couple of months. I Got my paperwork to start my background investigation to become a firefighter for the city of Columbus today. I've been going through the application process since November 2010. The academy they are trying to get me in begins in june. Not many people in Ohio get this opportunity, I WILL be an animal come test time.

Worked up to 245x5 for squats and 255x5 for deads for a few sets. Back seems to be holding up fine for squats and ok on deads. Going to be moving to more size oriented training (i.e. JM) in a few weeks hoping to get out of fetus body weight zone and put on some size.
