    lol... we have 3 gyms on campus and a pool.. but after lab I just want to sleep! I usually end up in the student center and on AM

    I just found out there is a power lifting club but they don't meet till 8pm. I want to check it out but the idea of being on campus for 13+ hours makes me cringe

    Yup. My schedule isn't quite that bad, but twice a week I'm on campus for around 10 hours straight. Thankfully I don't start until noon so I'm not up super early. 8 am classes are tough, but so are late night classes. I find my peak for mental function is around 11 am-3 pm.

    I don't blame you and would probably do the same.

    That would be rough. I'd probably check it out, but that would be it haha.

    Not a fan of night classes either. I took a once a week night class, which I believe was 3 hours long (with a 15min break)...horrible mistake lol.

    And you can't even take stims or anything to get you through the class because you won't be able to fall asleep if you do. I've been taking some sulbutiamine with my last meal before the class lately which seems to help and doesn't keep me up at night. For some reason my school loves to put all of the chem electives as night classes only, so most of the 400 level classes I have to take are at night, and they also love to put the 300 level classes at 8-10 am. Awesome! (not srs)

    It'd be nice if you could schedule them to allow for an early morning gym time. Being done with class in the early afternoon wouldn't be bad either.

  10. 3/23/13

    I weighed 215.8lbs (-1.2lbs overall) this morning. I’m looking slightly leaner and it doesn’t appear that much muscle has been lost (if any).

    I remembered to take all of my pre-workout supplements before heading to the gym this morning . My workout was awesome. Strength was clearly improved and my endurance was at a high level as well.


    Dante Rows (2sec hold)
    1 warm-up x12
    180x12
    200x10
    220x8
    230x6


    BB Row (rest-pause)
    1 warm-up x10
    225x10
    245x8
    245x8
    265x6


    Prone Shrugs (against rack/2sec hold)
    1 warm-up x12
    225x10
    245x8
    245x8


    Stretching
    1 min per lat


    Stretchers
    130x12
    140x10
    140x10


    Reeves Deadlift (Shelby Starnes variation)
    95x10
    95x10
    95x10

    -This could have been the best “feeling” exercise I’ve ever done. I felt like I should’ve been charged a fee for the amazing stretch they provided lol.

    -Shelby Starnes has a couple Reeves Deads variations that I've seen. Mine were performed as shown in the below video.

    Example


    Deadlift Shrugs
    1 warm-up x8
    315x8 / x3 (shrugs per deadlift)
    315x8 / x3

    -These were a big challenge after everything else.

  11. Another sick workout bro, and a new "must try" exercise!

    Thanks bud. That variation was awesome. If you do them, try not to use your legs or lower back at all. Concentrate on pulling through your upper back/shoulder blades. Rounding your upper back a little helps... and makes it feel like it'll split open from the stretch

    I actually didn't feel anything in my lower back at all. Think of rounding your upper back and pulling through your shoulder blades. That's how Starnes (the guy in the video) describes the movement. Start very light (maybe 10lb plates) and get a good feel for it.

    Exactly like me; I have early morning lectures which is ok, and i don't mind if I don't really pick anything up. Lecture time for me is just to get an overall idea of what I need to go away and learn. I don't learn in a lecture, I learn when I study.

    I see you and raise you a 8am-10am class then a 4pm-6pm class. I ended up just not turning up (it was an easy paper) simply because waiting that long is tedious. I must've not been thinking when I selected my timetable.

  17. I had a baller schedule in college. I worked at the gym on weekdays from 5am-10am worked out after, ate a huge meal for lunch, relaxed til my classes started at 3:45, done by 9pm, study - repeat. All of my engineering upper level classes were late night, so I was practically forced to this type of schedule.

    I'm the same way. Most of my "learning" was done outside of the classroom.

    That's pretty good. I preferred not having night classes, but think I'd enjoy that schedule.

  19. Whats your typical weekly split look like?

  20. 3/24/13

    No gym today.

    I finished my tub of Test Powder this morning, but started OEP Powder. The appetite suppression was a big help with my morning fast, especially since I didn't have the gym (or anything else planned) to kill some time. I'll probably be using it pre-workout in the morning, as the energy and focus are both solid. I noticed mood enhancement as well, which is always a plus.

    I plan on starting Versa-1 and C20 within the next week. I'm almost through my bottle of AB and might follow it up with ABE. If not, I'll use it during the second month of my cut.

    Right now it's kind of a mess, but I was doing the following:

    Legs
    Shoulders
    Off
    Back
    Chest
    Arms
    Off

    The "arms" followed by "off" day would swap places occasionally.

    Whichever of those is the shortest is where I'd probably toss them in. Do you superset things? One thing I like to do with abs/corrective work/small muscles is to use it as "filler" in between sets if I am not supersetting or even sometimes in the middle of supersets. Instead of sitting around for a couple minutes waiting for the next set I'll bang out something (as long as it won't have a direct negative effect on the current lift).

    Breezy ends Test Powder and I begin mine...honestly only been a couple days and this stuff has me dreaming weird and waking up an hour earlier than usual a couple days in a row (noted this when I logged it). Kinda crazy..

    How do you like it so far? That looks like something that I might want to try. If not, I'll probably stick with MD for now.

    I don't usually put much thought into where I place calves or ab work. It usually comes down to where they fit in better time-wise, which can change based on my schedule.

    Test Powder is some great stuff. I forgot about those weird dreams you were getting. I'm hoping my sleep quality doesn't take a hit soon...PowerFULL is running low.

    Thats a good idea, I might use ab work as a filler rather than bang them out at the end. I find ab work tedious and so i'm more inclined to just skip it if i'm tired at the end of my training session.

    I'm loving it; I respond better when I decrease muscle group volume per day but increase the frequency that i hit the groups. I'll prob put them in on upper body day because i'm toast on lower body day
