    Power Clean
    135x5
    165x5

    these actually felt good, but my legs were already dead from squating

    55x10 each arm

    I didn't do crap over the thanksgiving break because I'm lazy. I did eat a lot, but I'm not sure of what so I can't put it in my fitday. We lost in the state semi finals yesterday in the Georgia Dome. . I went by GNC and got some creatine and i'm going to start taking tomorrow. I'm also going to lift weights after school as a continuation of my last period weight lifting class, so I will get more done. I'll update this with my workout tomorrow.

    Today was weird. I felt energetic and strong, but I wasn't strong at all.

    Bench:
    8x135
    6x190
    4x215
    2x245 (needed a spot)

    Skulls/Close grip
    10x75
    10x75
    10x85

    Got a really nice pump from this

    DB Bench
    60x8
    60x8
    60x8

    DB Incline bench
    50x8
    50x8
    55x8

    Pushups
    BWx20
    BWx15
    BWx10
    BWx8

    My tris were nice and sore after this, but I really didn't feel strong on bench. I was using a different bar than normal, and I could not figure out where to put my hands

    We usually don't work out on wednesdays, but our coach decided to do a random azz workout.

    Medicine Ball Situps (15lbs)
    2x25

    Only did 2 sets of these because I busted my lip open because the medicine ball nailed me in the face.

    Crunches
    3x50

    Ahhh...the great feeling of no 15lb ball hitting you in the face

    Buddy Curls
    65x1
    65x2
    65x3
    65x4
    65x6
    65x7
    65x8
    65x9
    65x10
    65x9
    65x8
    65x7
    65x6
    65x5
    65x4
    65x3
    65x2
    65x1

    This is pretty hard. Oh well.

    I feel a lot stronger, and I think I look fuller (if that's possible). I haven't weighed myself in a while because the scale at school is broken, but I think I have gained a bunch of weight.

    I slept like a baby last night. I was so tired from that stupid test. I ate pretty well yesterday which made me happy because I don't eat well on the weekends for some reason. Hopefully this will continue and I'll get to my goal in a few more months.

    Wow. I'm eating like crazy today I'm already up to 4000 cals without my huge shake. Tell me what you think of this diet.

    Meal 1: 1 cup oatmeal, scoop of whey
    Meal 2: 3 pieces of pizza, large glass of milk
    Meal 3: 2 hardshell tacos, 2 enchiladas, 2 burritos (Thank goodness for cheap mexican restaurants...This meal cost me $10!!)
    then soon to be had
    Meal 4: 2 scoops whey, 1.5 cup milk, Peanut butter, cup whole oats, banana

    I usually eat one more meal but I woke up at 12 today. Oh well I got all my fats cals carbs and proteins.

    By the way, I have to start using my scale at home (which I think is wrong in some direction) because the one at school is broken. Today i was 230.

    Legs and back hurt from yesterday...blah. Today's work out was AWESOME!

    Bench:
    135x10
    195x6
    220x4
    250x2 NO SPOT!!!
    135x25!!!

    DB Bench (wasn't feelin these today):
    70x5
    70x5
    75x4

    Skulls/(Don't know what it's called will explain later)/Close Grip bench
    75x10
    75x8
    80x8

    Ok the thing in between you rest the bar on your chest then push it over your head and down a little bit then pull the bar back up to your chest. It kills your triceps and some muscle in your back that I can't pinpoint right now which one.

    Tricep Pull downs
    75x10
    85x10
    95x10

    My triceps were huge after this. I got one of my best pumps ever today. I have been real sore lately. Maybe the creatine is getting me to do more reps and more weight and that's why? Who knows. I feel great.

    I went to the gym today just to weigh myself. I was 134.8 WOO.
