Hi, I'm Ian. I'm from NW Missouri and am gettin back into working out after about 9mo-1yr of basically nothing. I started a new job over the last year and combined with my other job I was workin 70 plus hours a week. I cut my work schedule back and it's time to start pumpin iron again.
I'm about 6'0 and weigh between 185-195 depending on the day. I'm 21 years old and have been lifting for about 4-5 years. I got into weights through playing football and getting my ass kicked until I hit the weight room. My max lifts were bench press - 275, squat 375, and clean 250. I'm not anywhere near that now especially with the squats, and I don't clean anymore either. My bench is around 225 and squat about 250 (maybe, I've got garbage knees)
Here is how my current routine works:
Day 1: Chest/Arms
Day 2: Legs
Day 3: OFF
Day 4: Shoulders/Back
Day 5: OFF
Day 6: back to beginning
I used to break up chest and arms, but I really want to emphasize those two areas, because my triceps are really lacking.
I am eating a high protein diet supplementing with 2-3 40gm protein shakes daily and I'm still trying to keep low to mid carb intake. I want to stay somewhat lean since it is the summer. I may bulk up in the winter, but for now I'm taking it easy.
Any suggestions or thoughts are more than welcomed. I probably won't post a ton, but I have been working out for a few years and know my fair share about nutrition and body building. I enjoy reading other peoples thoughts and ideas and you can always learn from those who have more experience. Look forward to talking to you.
