hey everybody, starting my training log......
heres my split mon-chest tue-back wed-off thr a.m.-shoulders thr p.m.-legs fri-arms
this is last weeks workouts, week was really messed up (had the flu Sat thru Mon) so i missed some workouts, had to do a bis, tris, shoulders, and legs DC training style workout on friday to get everything in.

Welcome to the logs Sheriff, your first routine looks a bit "messy", but you state that it wasn't a normal week. Can't wait to see how your normal training looks bud.

P.s. Impressive pull-ups.
