Now that I'm in college, I've realized that the two most important things in life are babes and lifting. So, in honor of that, I've decided to get back into the gym (and kitchen) to look good for the babes. Here's the first lifting session I've had in 2 years:

Jerks
-45 x 3
-65 x 3
-95 x 5
-105 x 3
-115 x 3

Deadlifts (my favorite)
-95 x 3
-115 x 3
-135 x 3
-155 x 3
-185 x 3
-205 x 2
-225 x 1
-245 x 6
-245 x 3
-225 x 6

I think I'll be back up over 3 plates very soon.

Dips
-BW x 8
-BW x 4.5 (couldn't lock out)
-BW x 3

DB Bicep Curls
-25s x 8
-20s x 5
-15s x 5

Felt awesome to be back in the gym. It does suck to be weaker at age 17 than at age 15. But you can expect a lot more from me in these upcoming months.

Oh, and by the way, here are my current stats:

Age: 17, Height: 5'8", Weight: ~150 (guesstimate)

Drew - Haha thanks bro. Funny you mention that...my buddy just started back up on WoW again, and he asked me to join him. We'd be playing a lot more casually than we used to, but you're right that it is just the principle of playing WoW. Might get sucked into that **** again.

Coke - Dude you're awesome haha. You're the reason I lift man. Always motivating me. I'll for SURE get the benching in each wednesday man. Wuet.

After you dropped almost a full stack on that new Alexi, I'd hope that makes its way into your list of priorities too. ;)

Lifting looks good.

What the hell?

You used to be a little bit chubby. Did you quit lifting, and just naturally lean out? Damn!

I see you've grown a couple inches. I guess that did it, but damn..lol. I grew 7 inches between 6th and 7th grade, and another 5 inches by my sophomore year of highschool, but I still gained 115lbs of mostly fat to go with it. :(

Coke - Thanks bra. The pull was insanely slow though. Gotta eat more!

Viking - Haha for sure dude. I can safely say that music is my biggest priority in life right now. Then babes. Then lifting. Oh, and throw school somewhere in there too...but probably more toward the end haha. =)

Elwood - Haha yeah you could put it that way. I think the natural abundance of testosterone in teens sort of produces that effect. But I'm back and ready to rock! And dude, whoa...how tall are you? That's a lot of growing.

Looking lean bro, lift heavy and eat like champ and you'll be pretty built. All I can say is lift for you and let the babes come own their own accord.

I think you could pack a solid 20-25 pounds of muscle and a tiny bit of fat on in about 10 months and be lookin pretty stacked
