    Nice to be done with finals and be home for a bit. My sister belongs to a local gold's gym and she had some 12 day free pass coupon so I was pretty stoked that I didn't have to pay to join anything while I'm home for the holidays.

    With that being said going to a gym for the first time is always somewhat fun, and it takes a little bit of getting used to. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold...in fact I know I am. I took 3 caps of N before driving to the gym.

    Flat Bench: warmup: 135 x 10, 185 x 5
    225 x 5
    4 @ 235 x 4
    255 x 3

    Incline: 135 x 10
    155 x 10
    165 x 5

    DB Flies: 3 @ 50's x 10

    DB Tri-things? don't know the name of this exercise they didn't have any weight belts so instead of weighted dips I pulled these out, feels similar to skullcrushers but you take a DB and lay on a bench and extend the DB out, then bring it in near your head and lift back. Regardless - 3 @ 30's x 10

    Tri-pushdowns: 10 x 57.5
    8 x 67.5
    4 x 77.5

    Tricep extension machine: 10 x 90
    6 x 125
    4 x 140

    Shrugs: 225 x 10
    255 x 5
    275 x 4

    Upright Row: 3 @ 100 x 8

    Mil Press: 110 x 7, x 5, x 4


    One very noticable thing at 3 caps is the cayenne. I can feel the thermogenics as I feel myself sweating. I don't notice it nearly as much at 2 caps. Pretty good workout though considering I feel this cold coming on and I didn't have a workout partner or anyone to toss me a spot. After the lift I drove home and felt rather mellow, its a nice feeling.

    As I had feared, I've come down with a cold. I know nobody actually likes having a runny nose all the time but I despise it, it doesn't even stop me from doing anything - its just a nuisance.

    Regardless I still made it to the gym, didn't take any N.

    Let me start off by saying....Wednesday didn't happen at all. In fact, I think I was legally able to classify myself as "hibernating". I spent the day getting very intimate with a bottle of nyquil, but this morning when I woke up I felt much better. Not 100%, but...well enough that I made it into the gym to spread around some germs. I popped 2 N pills right before getting started for a little extra boost to get me through the day.

    Flat bench warmup: 135 x 10, 185 x 5, 225 x 5
    235 x 5
    2 @ 235 x 4
    255 x 3

    Inclines: 135 x 10
    155 x 6
    165 x 7

    Flies: 3 @ 50 x 10

    Tri-pushdowns: 62.5 x 10
    72.5 x 10
    82.5 x 5

    Kickbacks: 30 x 10
    40 x 10
    50 x 8

    S-shrugs: 225 x 10
    255 x 10
    295 x 8

    DB front shoulder raises: 3 @ 10 x 25's

    Mil Press: 110 x 6
    130 x 4

    Then I left, I was tired. Realistically I shouldn't have been there today but I absolutely hate missing out on days, especially chest (call it an ego thing, thats exactly what it is) It doesn't help that I'm just a wee bit stubborn too. Anyway, I feel like I've conquered the worst parts of this cold and it is on its way out. Also only a week left of lifting at home without a partner so I should be able to push myself more after this coming week.

    No N today, feeling much better and I imagine in a day or so I'll be back at 100%.
    Tell you what though, OW my left forearm was not feeling good today. Don't know what I did yesterday but wooo thats not right. Slept in an awkward position last night though and woke up with sore shoulders and a neck, could have been sleeping on the arm too who knows - I'm not worried about it.

    I miss my school's gym and doing deadlifts and having a partner. Tomorrow I've got some obligatory family x-mas party...with the mom's half of the family - absolutely love my dad's half but mom's half is all old and awkward...I'm probably gonna take a nice dose of neuphoria before going tomorrow it should be interesting.

    Alright its been awhile! Hope everyone had a nice holiday. I really don't know what I'm doing this week, not having monday threw me off and also tomorrow a girl is driving out from pittsburgh to see me and we'll be spending the day together so I'll try to hit the gym but, we shall see. Today I mixed things up, I actually would like to hit all my parts twice this week or at least give it a valiant effort, so I went ahead and did the chest/shoulder tri workout today. On a side note I ate damn well over the past few days. Cheated a lot, thats all I'm gonna say, but not worried about it in the slightest.

    Took 2 caps of N before driving today. It was on an empty stomach early in the morning. I've never taken it like this before and I felt it was a huge difference. I actually was driving to the gym and missed my exit as I was just zoning listening to music. That was mildly humorous. Anyway....

    Arms/back today - I know things are all sorts of messed up. I played around with something different today, less pyramiding of weights. Tomorrow will be the last workout at this home gym so I'm pretty stoked to get back into my own territory Took 3 caps of N - things went rather smoothly - left arm was a little sore after doing some sets of the curls but its much better than it was after last friday. Nothing I can't handle

    Ok friday I lifted chest/shoulders/tri's....Saturday I drove back to school and the gym did not re-open until today (we were back around school before we were really supposed to be) So I wasn't able to lift until today where I did legs/abs. I forgot my notebook though so unfortunately I wasn't able to keep track of what happened specifically - It wasn't anything special. Neither days did I take any N.

    Regardless, its good to be back at school - I weighed in today at 184. So X-mas didn't seem to hit me TOO hard despite my drinking + sneaking cookies and such. 2 months until Cancun though so...Its time to get serious.

    Anyway Friday's chest workout looked like this

    Flat BP Warmup: 135 x 10, 185 x 5
    4 @ 235 x 4
    255 x 3

    Chest Press: 190 x 6
    210 x 3,
    210 x 4

    Tri- Pushdown 3 @ 77.5 x 8

    Mil Press: (this machine I've used for this exercise while at home has been very difficult...it was odd)
    110 x 7
    110 x 5
    110 x 3

    Front DB shoulder raises: 3 @ 25's x 8

    Shrugs: 225 x 10
    245 x 8
    295 x 5
    315 x 4

    All in all I survived the break and holiday season. Time to get back to work.

    So saturday night I took 3 pills of N, it wasn't workout related but I was in an absolutely horrible mood. I was really psyched as we were planning on going out and everything fell through there. So instead I ended up just falling asleep at like 10 and woke up a few times during the night...most notably at 3 in the morning when the fire alarm went off in the building....It was very cold outside too. Oh and to top it off I was having girl problems with 2 separate girls...Regardless, sunday I woke up and was really giddy all day. I guess sitting in solitude on a saturday night just makes me gloomy.

    Sunday was off and today was back to the chest/shoulders/tris....

    It was extremely crowded in the gym today (still the new years crowd, it'll dissipate by the end of the week) I usually like to do 1 more shoulder and tricep exercise but everything was taken and I didn't feel like waiting around anymore. But in any case.....

    2 pills of N pre-workout today.

    Flat Bench: warmup: 135 x 10, 185 x 5

    225 x 6
    2 @ 240 x 5
    255 x 1 (this was a failure test, I had to get at least 2 reps to stay in my progression row...didn't make it - not too bummed about it considering I'm trying to cut weight while still seeing strength gains)

    Bleh haven't taken any N in the past 2 workouts, but tuesday my pen died on me and today I just plain forgot my logbook....I'm slacking I know. Everything went well though, nothing spectacular. Squats were fun today, been a while since I've actually done those.

    I've been without my ipod all week. Wireless headphones broke after 2 weeks and I'm waiting for Logitech to send me a new pair...if that ever happens. The positive part of this is without my i-pod I've noticed I've been surprisingly doing well in the gym with staying on task and not p'oed.

    215 x 10
    265 x 5

    No N as stated but wow, d-lifts felt great. So many times when I do them, or even s-shrugs its never the weight that gets me but the stress on the calluses on my hands. By no means am I opposed to man-hands but it feels great to bust that out. I still should get some straps....

    Did some mil-press too, didn't record that..was nothing special

    All in all a good lift - feeling great, skipping a class right now b/c the prof posts all the notes online and I can read the book and should be fine.

    Burn out on arm curl machine, started with 8 x 10 and moved down 7, 6, all the way to 1. Ouch.... Great lift though, starting to show signs of another cold coming in...I only got 3 hours of sleep the one night this past weekend, that will usually rock my immune system. Started taking meds now to hopefully shorten the illness or bypass it.

    Friday My pen died on me, couldn't write - I should invest in pens that aren't complete POS. And yesterday (monday) I just plain forgot a pen. Things went well though. Was doing w-dips while a real cute blonde girl was working in abs so I felt motivated to strap on 135 and go at that. All in all things are going well - except the -20 degree wind chill. Definitely excited for spring break...
