In yesterday’s update I challenged myself to increase the amount of weight and the number of reps (as compared to last week) on every single chest & triceps exercise, and I did it. It was not an easy task, but I knew that I could do it if I put everything I had into the workout. I walked out of the gym feeling incredibly good about my effort. Next week I’ll be increasing the weight on all exercises, and the following week I’ll be changing my exercises around completely.

As I mentioned on Saturday, I’m going to be taking a lot more bulking progress pictures over the next few months. Yesterday I snapped a few new chest and triceps shots and put them in my journal. While I’m still relatively small compared to how I’ve looked in the past, after less than 3 weeks of hard training and eating big I can already see that my muscles no longer look as flat, and are really starting to fill out again. I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m extremely inspired and encouraged by what I’m seeing thus far.

On the subject of pictures, I very strongly recommend that everyone take frequent progress pictures. You don’t have to post the pictures publicly, of course, but if you don’t take pictures then one day you’ll probably regret not having a photographic record of your progress. I find it very motivational to look at my own progress pictures. In fact, one of the ways I got pumped up to do this bulk was to go back and look at photos of myself when I was bigger. I also looked at very early photos of my progress to remind me just how far I’ve come, and that hard work really does pay off.

I’ve got the day off from training, so all I really need to do is eat a lot and rest. I’m going to need all the food and rest I can get, because tomorrow’s back and bicep workout is going to be brutal.

Train well, and see you tomorrow!
