Simpson's Training Journal: Week 2.

I was really into fitness and I got a copy of Muscle and Fitness mainly for the 'fitness' section. However, after awhile I began to desire the 'muscle' part more and haven't looked back.

Week: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4-6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

The week in review....

As I reflect over the happenings of the past week one word that springs to mind is mediocre. Sure I was motivated and full of desire but my workouts seemed to lack the intensity which I craved.

My first two workouts were right up there, close to 10 out of 10's but after that things fell apart. I think I began to take things for granted. For example, my chest workout 2 weeks ago left my knowing growth would follow and my chest was pumped for days, however this week even though my poundage's did increase by 5 KGs on all presses I was still not real happy with the results, it was like I was going through the motions rather than going through the pain.

My diet also wash all over the place. I didn't follow an exact plan but I ate every 2-3 hours, ensuring at each meal I got at least 30g of protein and at least 70g of carbs and 10g of fat. My main sources of protein where eggs, tuna, meat and powders.

Another negative was that my supplements have not arrived yet. I will begin taking them as soon as they do.

The week ahead....

This week I have set 2 goals:

  • 1. Train with monster intensity
  • 2. Train with even more intensity.
I must block out everything that is happening in my gym and focus on the task at hand.

This is my split for this week

  • Mon: Arms
  • Tues: Legs/Delts/Traps
  • Wed: Arms
  • Thurs: Rest
  • Fri: Arms
  • Sat: Chest/Back
  • Sun: Rest
My arm workouts will vary from low reps to medium and also high rep sessions. The exercises will be the same as Week 1.

The past week has been very busy for my in all aspects and as a result this journal is shorter than I would like it. I plan to spend more time on it this week and also write some good articles. So check back next week.

Until next time,
