    Try looking through some other members logs and see how they record them.

    And welcome to the board.

    Yes it's easier if you add the bar weight into it so you have a total.

    So if you did three sets of five reps with 135 lbs you should record it like this.

    135 x3 x5

    weight x sets x reps.

    question: on the novice lifting and training programme i read, it quoted that rip said to do it 3 times a week. as in mon,wed, fri, or tues, thurs and sat. i've done my 2nd day today, and i was thinking of going in again tmr, instead of skipping thurs. is it bad for the body? or should i let it rest.. i'm so eager to lift!! LOL

    Get the rest, you'll need it. It's good to hear that you are enthusiastic but don't overdo it.

    over all was fine. getting the hang of it again. suppose to do hit the gym yesterday (friday), but i club till 4 something, slept till 3pm.. din had the strength, even through i club again last night, but i had less alcohol, more rest, woke up earlier, less hang over.. so i went to lift.. it was fine really..
    din felt much..

    next monday imma be going it again, i think i'll get a video and post it, so maybe someone can comment on it. long way from lifting heavy just yet, but that concludes week 1 of lifting.

    eating every 3 hours, cereal for breakfast, then i have lunch, then i have banana's, bread n eggs, then dinner, then some other stuff.. trying to get more meat, but that depends on mum.. she buys the stuff..
