Hey guys, just posting an update for now. I'm now away at college, SUNY Cortland, and I've still been working out regularly for the most part. I've changed around some exercises due to plateaus, involving weighted dips instead of bench press, barbell military press rather than DB military press, and the saddest of all, lunges instead of squats. The week before I got here, I started to decline in squats. Before I was at 220x6 and now it's tough for me to do 200lbs.

Idk what it is, but I have the same sleep habits, but my eating has worsened a bit. Actually, I'm hardly snacking like I used to at home, but my main meals aren't as clean. I need to start eating more wraps and eggs and tuna sandwiches . I just switched these exercises the past couple of workouts, but I'm already improving on dips and my lunge technique/poundage looks muuuuuch better than before, with a nice, full ROM and 40lbs each hand for the first workout doing them. I'm not sure why, but when I step with my left foot, my technique couldn't be better, but I really have to focus for my right step to be correct...and I'm a righty lol

Suggestions?

As you can see, I haven't been posting my workouts here since I arrived at college. I'm still working out, but not as consistantly as I should; there's no excuse, but I was kind of surprised at my workload when I got here and haven't really found the best way to balance my time yet. I've been swapping exercises around to experiment in the past 2 months; I'll post what exercises I'm using now.

Day 1

I. Barbell Back Squats 4x6-8 (tried lunges for a while, then front squats, then back to back squats. form is very good now)

II. One-Armed Snatches 4x6-8(switched to deadlifts for a bit - scraped up my legs and made me bleed in the gym once so I switched back)

III. Shrugs 4x6-8

IV. Barbell Curls 4x6-8

Day 2

I. Flat Dumbbell Press 4x6-8 (went from barbell bench to weighted dips to these)

II. Cable Rows 4x6-8( tried a bunch of different exercises including weighted pull-ups, DB rows, to plate rows which I couldn't balance. Wondering if cable rows are efficient enough or if I should do something else. I think that weighted pull-ups were hurting my potential in the shoulder exercise.

III. Military Press 4x6-8 (doing pretty well with these...back up to 95lbs)

IV. Overhead Extensions 4x6-8 (skull crushers didn't feel natural so I started using a single dumbbell in the past month - not bad)

SO, all in all I know which exercises I choose to stick with aren't that important, but that I actually pick them and consistantly work on them. Consistancy is key. After my volleyball games tonight(45mins each) I might only do some light cardio at the gym instead of a workout because I have sharp pains in my throat when I swallow. I think light cardio would better direct me towards recovery rather than an intense weightlifting workout.

Maybe I'll start posting my workouts...can't promise anything. I'll update more frequently though. If you want to make some suggestions in favor of cable rows or DB rows or weighted pullups, be my guest.

This is what I've decided to stick with:

Day 1

Barbell Back Squats 4x6-8
One-Armed Dumbbell Snatches 4x6-8
Shrugs 4x6-8
Alternating Dumbbell Curls 4x6-8

Day 2

Flat Dumbbell Bench Press 4x6-8
Chin-ups 4x6-8
Military Press 4x6-8
Laying One-Armed Dumbbell Extensions 4x6-8


The past 3-4 workouts I've left my notebook at my dorm room because I think rest more when I use it. Don't ask why, I think I just hold it for extra time and don't focus on keeping up the intensity when I have it. I might start using it again though to make sure to improve every workout. I'll just have to be extra keen on my intensity.

On intensity, I wonder about it during my workouts. I have actually been finishing my workouts quicker, but I still don't feel like my intensity is where it should be. For example, when doing snatches I'll usually rest between each arm for a minute or two because it takes me so out of breath. I don't think I rest more for any other exercise. And another thing, with squats, I think I might go a rep or two less than I need to for absolute failure because I'm worried of getting stuck in the bottom position. And I also take a breath between each rep because I'd be doing much less reps...am I supposed to go right from the top position to the bottom, in one fluid motion? Either way, I guess I gotta start asking for a spot from random people...
