Week One, Day One

Today I started the Max-OT Workout put together by simplyshredded.com. A little info about my stats to start I guess. Im currently 6'1 and at a weight of about 192 pounds. My gym experience is limited having completed only the Starting Strength Program. Day one of the first week is legs. Here is how the workout went.

Barbell Squats : 185 pounds for 3 sets of 5 reps
Leg Press: 180 pounds for 2 sets of 5 reps
Stiff-Legged Deadlifts: 165 pounds for 3 sets of 6
Sitting Calf Raises: 90 pounds for 3 sets of 6 reps

I left the one legged calf raises out today as I have recently sprained my ankle and the calf raises were putting extreme pressure on my ankles. I decided there was not much of a point in further aggravating the injury. The workout went great. It felt good to get back at it. The amount of weight I was lifting today was less than when I had stopped, but that is expected.

Like I stated prior I started taking creatine again today. Im loading for 2 days at 10 grams twice a day. After those two days I will take 5g daily.

As for my nutrition today it wasnt the greatest. I keep a nutrition journal at www.fitday.com which comes in handy. That being said my nutrition intake broke down like this:
Calories: 2837
Fat: 72g
Carbs: 335.1g

Im going to try and get my nutrition back on track, but Im having a bit of a time finding what works. I hope to have it figured out and be where I want shortly.

Someone asked if I was going to be cyclng creatine and the answer is yes. An example of what i will be doing is below. The only part I will be changing is the period of time in which I am in my maintenance dose time. i plan on going 6 weeks and cycling off for 1 week. The starting again.
Tomorrow is arms and abs, which Im looking forward to.

Any questions or comments feel free to post. Im also hoping to get some pictures up soon, however getting a camera is a bit difficult currently.
