    decided to make a journal to keep track of my gains/what i eat. i dont mind if you dont post but just be nice. my max seems a little off what i rep because i had a weeks rest before i maxed 225. almolst forgot to add that i fast for about 7 hours from when i wake up, then when i get home i make something to eat.

    Why on earth do you fast for 7 hours after you get up? If you're sleeping 8 hours a day that's 15 hours a day of not eating...

    it has something to do with me showing up late for school everyday. its a pain in the ass for me to bring several healthy meals to school so i thought it would be better if i just ate when i got home.

    if i stand straight with a tight shirt my chest sticks out alot, i tend to slouch. my legs used to be long for my body but when i grew, my shoulders got broad for my height, my arms hang down so my hands can almost touch my knees.

    im gonna try and get some pics when i get a new camera

    hia, i was a curl jockey since i was 13. at the beginning of my sophomore year i started doing a decent routine. ended up fracturing my knuckle outside the gym and had to rest for 4 weeks. when i came back i had made lots of gains on all my lifts. so since then i have been lifting for about 7-8 months.
