Hi!

I thought it would be fun to have a log on here as well, to get some input on my training/diet and some motivation. So let's go!


Info:

20y/o
188cm (6'2")
96kg (211lb) - Weighed 112kg in the beginning of the year.



Training-split / "Diet":

1: Chest/Shoulders / 200g protein(low), 350g carbs(high), 60g fat
2: Back/Abs / 225g protein(medium), 200g carbs(medium), 60g fat
3: Rest / 250g protein(high), 100g carbs(low), 60g fat
4: Arms, Abs / 200g protein(low), 350g carbs(high), 60g fat
5: Legs / 225g protein(medium), 200g carbs(medium), 60g fat
6: Rest / 250g protein(high), 100g carbs(low), 60g fat
7: Repeat

(Can't be more specific, food changes every day, and exercises changes from workout to workout.)



History:

2005-2006: Did some powerlifting, my biggest acheivement was winning the Swedish national sub-junior benchpress championship in -06. Was a decent bencher back then.
2007: Dieted for the first time, decent results, didn't get very hard though. Bulked whole summer/autumn

Since 1/1 2008 I've been dieting/body re-comping, started at 112kg and aiming for 88kg in December. Have lost about 15kg in 8 months so far, so I'm taking it really slow this time.



Injuries:

I've had my fair share... Injured my back in 05, and it'll probably never be 100% again. Can't free squat, deadlift or do bent-over rows since then.

Other then that, I have problems with an elbow, knees and have had a minor pec-tear (couldn't train chest for about 4 months this spring)



Goals:

Do my first bodybuilding show in June-09, natural of course. Won't care about how I place, my goal is simple to come in as good as I can.

I'm glad to hear that!

The show I'm planning to do is in June-09, so it's alot of time left. I will diet until December this time, then cruise (maintaining weight or just go up a little) a couple of months before I start my competition-prep in febuary-march.

I'll update todays food later on, and my face is not important. :)
