Staying Fit in University

It's been about a month into university and my life has completely changed because of it. I discontinued "Lifting, Fighting, and Ale" because that's about as aptly applied to my life and what I want as "Originality, Quality, and Refreshing" would be aptly applied to the Fast and Furious movie series or Saw lol. Sorry to everyone that likes it, but come on. Anyways, ale is expensive, I barely have time to breath let alone "fight (wrestle)", and lifting is hard to get done too. If it doesn't happen in the morning, it probably won't happen.

Some things I've found to be imperative to success: scheduling and flexibility. Here's my diet planning -

Vegetables
For raw leafy vegetables like green salad, a serving is 1 cup
For other vegetables, cooked or chopped raw, a serving is ½ cup
For vegetable juice, a serving is ¾ cup

Yes, actually. I cook everything that I'd have to make (meat, recipes etc) on Sunday so I don't need to take time away from my studies, or my working out...or really anything is better than cooking during the week lol. The layout of servings pretty much guarantees I won't go over 2500-2600 calories (but I still track them with a phone calculator because it's pretty easy to do) and that I'll fall within my macro range. I only eat the treat on days where I've done more than I've had to (so on Tuesdays when I go to wrestling practice I can safely say I can have a treat with out much chance of going over calories). If I have higher calorie carbs on a day (beans for example) Ill have less servings of it (instead of 6 I'll just have 3) and light versions of everything else (eggs for P and olives for F). From there I'll just create my meal plan on the fly -- Ex/(Meal 1=2P, 1C, 1Fr; Meal 2=1P, 2C, 1V, 1 F etc. -- until all the servings are used up.

Simple, easy, doesn't require any effort, I'm slimming down, getting stronger, so I really like the system I have. when I stop losing weight just reduce the servings, or stay away from the higher calorie options or stop the treats. It takes roughly 2 total minutes to track it this way through out the day.

I'm an undergrad. I have a science based major, so it's not so much the class time as much as it is everything I do has a lab. My calculus course has a math lab, my chemistry course has a chem lab, etc. I'd say in total with the amount of time studying + the amount of time I spend in class and labs accumulates to 40-70 hours a week because the amount of material covered in each class goes SOOOOO QUIICCKKLLY. It's enough to keep me on my toes haha.

Thanks for the kind words, bud!

Some days are just impossible. My diet went to **** today and yesterday. I didn't workout at all either. I studied to about 4 in the morning on friday and saturday, and today I studied until about 9 pm.

All I did was hammer curls (52.5 lbs 1x30, 1x40, 1x10) anyways, starting next week strong.

Rack Pull - Not sure on the height...It 's about 3/4 of the way up my shin?: I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier. I can't fully DL why would I emancipate it completely? I'll just do a modified version. BRILLIAANNNNTTT!
275x6
315x6
365x4
405x1

Okay, these felt much better. I even know now what it's NOT the fact that I can't deadlift 315, it's just that I'm so inflexible that I can't set up right to DL. I did the rack pulls and I had no pain in my lower back, and I could even pull quite a bit of weight with comfort. I know now that after a long time neglecting my lower back it's a weak link as well as my grip. My upper back feels fine, but my lower back feels sore already, and my forearms feel tight. I'll work to increase my flexibility, but in the mean time I'm just going to do rack pulls at this height. Better than nothing, right?

Chest-to-bar Chin Ups:
BWx10
10x9
25x7
30x4
+5 more Wide Grip

Diet is on point insofar. I really like the way I'm going about it. I'll see how effective it is at the end of the week. in terms of weight loss (241 lbs this week...yeah...gained some weight. This is my first week working with it again.)

Weekly PT:
480 push ups
180-35 pull ups=145 pull ups
300 band pull aparts.

if lower back is a weak point, I would even start at beginning weight with BB Deads. If you're worried about the weight and people seeing do it late at night or early AM. Trust me, you do not want imbalances.

Oh definitely. I'm going to drop it back to 225-315 and work it up from there. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

I like you. I like that you're trying to continue to improve yourself in school, health and life.

I'm going to send you something. I'm not sure what yet but I'm going to hook you up. I admire your dedication to health and fitness while still maintaining your study habits.

Hard work like that should be rewarded and it will be. Be patient but I'm going to hook you up with something lol

No log expected, no nothing in return, a genuine free product lol. Just keep up the hard work man! It'll all be worth it in the end :)

@ Spaniard -- thanks haha. Unless you're willing to send me necessary ingredients and equipment for me to speed ball caffeine and pure, uncut columbian bam-bam, I'm actually pretty good on supplements. I don't really use them all that often, and if I do it's usually just a protein powder. Protein powder and coffee. Coffee is my new best friend. I love coffee and coffee loves me. We often invite oreos and popcorn for an orgy for the latest nights of studying (such as yesterday where I actually stayed up until 1:00 a.m. doing my Pre-Lab for chemistry, which I will talk about later but not tonight).

Thanks for the offer, though haha.

@ The Movement -- Hurts...Hurts reaaall badly good bad. Mostly bad. I think they're harder than back squats but not quite as intense in terms of strain because the bar is loaded more on your shoulders and infront of your spine as opposed to directly on top of it. At least that's been my experience with them. I like them a lot.

Chest and Shoulders (Soo...fricken...out of this world tired. I only got 4 hours of sleep yesterday because I had a lab at 8:30 and I worked until about 1, but I couldn't sleep. Needless to say this work out, which I did at 10:00 at night, was not a triumphant one)

DB flies -- Yes, I was so tired I actually resorted to DB flies for a "chest pump". I looked myself in the mirror after and was just like " You used to believe in something, you used to believe in compounds and that db flies lead to nothing but shoulder pain...what happened to you man?"

And I can definitely hear what you're saying about the supps but if you ever change your mind and think you want a pre, creatine, beta alanine whatevs just let me know dude!

Also, I don't know how the hell you studied that long at all! If I study too much I legitimately get angsty and angry lol!

I take breaks, of course. Little 10-15 minuters. That's usually when I do my weekly PT; a little exercise goes a long way. I also feel you on the angsty and angry bit. It depends on whether or not I understand, though lol. If I'm getting everything and it's all going my way then it's hard to stop, but if I'm looking at something for 2 hours and still don't understand then I actually start nervously sweating and get angry haha. OH UNIVERSITY, your cruel bitch.

@ the movement - Yeahhh buddy. Go hard or go home, ye-yeay. Although, to be honest, going home sounds much more appealing most days.

Go figure, I got incredibly sick just days before my midterms. I've been sick now for about 2 weeks and haven't really had the mental capacity to study for 1 and a half of those (always tired and couldn't even sit up long enough to crack open a book) and I haven't worked out for any of it. I lost 11 lbs in the first 9 days, and then proceeded to gain some of it back in the next 4-5 lol. Today was the first day I actually felt well enough to work out again. I'm surprised by how well I actually did...Not superb by any means, but not awful either.

*I wanted to do SLDL but I worked out late meaning it was all crowded and all the barbells were taken (It's a crappy hole in the wall gym, I think there's a total of 12 olympic barbells...), and I had a time frame, so I skipped it and just did Back extensions 3x10 BW

Neck and abs

Walk for cardio
Welcome back to the land of the living! Hope your tests and Holiday went well!

100 squats
100 crunches

My philosophy: Always do something. It doesn't have to be big, it doesn't need to be long, but I feel as if letting a day go by with out doing anything is just a quick way to saying "screw it" and falling off the diet. A noticeable trend of mine: I'm much more likely to give up on a restriction of my calories when I don't work out/exercise.

@ TM - Even worse lol. It's much better now, however. The first semester I didn't know how to study, I didn't know where to go for help, I had 1,000 things to do, I needed to learn to take care of yourself in terms of setting up appointments and meetings and time with my professors, I had to learn how to schedule. I wasn't the kind of person that had things all figured out before I went to university, so the first semester was a huge kick in the butt and I had to learn A LOT more than just the course material. This time I have a worse course load, but I actually know what I'm doing, how I study, where to go, how to schedule etc. More Chem and Calc (I thought I was going for Engineering before, but I really like Chemistry/bio sciences, so I'm going for Medicine in the long run or Chemistry.)

Thanks for checking in btw. I saw your blog, and I have to say that you are one strooooonnngg fellah. I hope you're keeping it up?

@ Abe - Good luck, bud. If you do badly your first semester don't beat yourself up over it. The first semester is always the hardest. I'm in my second now and it's much better.

It wasn't too bad besides the bar. That bar has always been off. I've done curls with it and the same thing happens. Classes are going very, very well. I'm pretty much deciding on a chem major. Love it. Do you go to uni bud, or already out?

Oh cool, well congratulations to you! I have a friend who is currently in a masters program. He is stressed and angry allllll the time and he has 0 time for his girlfriend lol, but if you're passionate about the subject then it does nothing but benefit you. For a masters and phd it's a few years of suck for a lot of years of opportunity.

A lot of people say "chem? Boy that sounds so hard" but in reality it's something I like to do so it's not all that painful. I would blow my brains out if I had to do 9-5 office job as an accountant, so I could never do finance or accountant major. It's not that I'm too stupid to do it, it's just unbearable, and I feel as if that's how it is for people and the sciences where it's just not interesting enough for them to pursue it as opposed to being too stupid.

On the flip side I'm taking English as well and I'm doing worse in that class than chemistry. The thoughts that my professor has and the philosophical debates are amazing, but it's just hard for me to sit down and do the work because I'm so enamoured by the sciences and math. The point is: the world needs philosophers just as much as it needs chemists, and neither are smarter than the other; it's just a different type of intellectualism.

Had a REALLY good session today. Everything went flying up

BP
270x6 (even paused the last rep for a couple seconds)

Also, spilled 2.0M HCl on my finger today. Woops. No damage though, and no big deal. I just got it under water quickly. It's too diluted to actually do anything if you get on it quickly.
