Anyone in college...hows your training going??
Well Finals week is next week and these past 2 weeks have been complete hell. I haven't been getting a lot of sleep b/c of loads of work and studying, my diet has been pretty good, but I've been streesed to the bone man. My workouts have been sub-par compared to a couple weeks ago. I was just seeing how everyone else in the boat I'm in is doing with their training and such

Im doin decent. I always find time to eat and train. What I have been doing, is taking my meals with me to the library to study. Training only takes a lil over an hour at the most, so I squeeze it in. I dont have class starting today and I have 2 finals tomorrow. Starting pretty soon here I'm going to start studying today for the entire day.

hard luck man. im repeating first year this year so im only doing 2 subjects (that i failed first time round) which amounts to 4 hours of lectures a week. its SOOO boring, but i got loads of time to workout whenever i want and spend lots of time cooking good meals. ah well, i guess repeating has a couple of benefits....

I feel your pain bro, for me sleep and training are definetly suffering, gotta have your priorities straight i guess, for me training has been priority up until now, but for these two weeks school is taking over.

Sleeping- maybe 4 hours
Eating- horribly (anything and everything in sight)
Training- remarkably well, considering my diet at the present moment.
School- stressful, but it's almost over. I have a presentation tomorrow, 3 major exams next week, and two ten page papers (I have only started one of them).
Good luck to everybody on their final exams and papers.

I'm feeling a little decline in my workouts, I think it's due to to much brain stress. It's almost over and we can all chill for a bit.
Good luck to everyone.

Its not so bad here...Its important to take it all in stride. I dont worry Im just mellow about everything..except for that time when that guy took my avatar...

I'm doing pretty well, actually. Even though it's finals week next week, I don't have any finals. I just have 2 tests on the last day of the semester which is this Friday. But I know a lot of people in your same boat. It'll be over before you know it and business as usual with resume. I must say though, my workouts have been sub-par lately and I'm not sure why although I'd guess it's because I've been spending a lot of time with my new girlfriend.

training and dieting are going very good. i am a kinesiology major so every class i have benefits me in my training and nutrition, and i am actually excited about doing the homework because it is something that intrests me. plus most of the finals i am taking are projects like training programs, and 3 day dietary analysis.....Cmon man i can do that shat in my sleep! sorry to the bros that are having bad luck.

Everything would be going fine if I havnt been sick of a week and lost my appetite the entire time. Real fun stuff. Only have one final in chem on the 19th and just a couple papers and projects that are due beforehand so nothing too bad. the hardest part is getting sleep and quality food.

I have only hit the gym twice in the passed 4 weeks.
It's basically going to be one or the other for now.
If i were you buddy, ide sit on this advice.
If you've got finals week, as do i, don't try to force yourself into the gym. Get your school work done with. That's your main piority. Not much help to your physical goals when you're getting a crappy workout between studying.
-You'll be too exausted to work out well, and then ontop of that, you're already tired, so you're overe exhausting your body, and you have more of a chance of getting sick do to low immune system
The gym isn't going anywhere. So just gotta relax.
I'm pretty sure I haven't gone from "fab to flab" in 4 weeks. Just think of it as, "you are letting your body become well rested for a really big day at the gym... in couple weeks"

I got a new dl PR for reps with conventional
1. while cutting
2. during finals week
12-07-2005, 10:31 AM #22

12-07-2005, 01:02 PM #23
I have put my training on hold for now on. I just workout to maintain and my diet is crap. Havent had energy or time to focus on lifting this entire fall.
12-07-2005, 01:10 PM #24
Yep training is going great.
Diet sloppy as hell as usual but eating tons of food.
Glad I took off a year before going to college.
12-07-2005, 01:16 PM #25
My diet for the past month has been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SHHATTTY due to stress of ending classes and well, pretty much because of a new GF... Not to mention that she wants me to spend every facking waking moment with her... AHHHH then finals are now, and i'm on Max LMG and should be putting alot more focus on my training and DEF. more time on my diet, but if i do the Fackin biatch GF wouldn't understand... Women...

Man i think the idea is study during the semester as you get all the new material and then the study before your test is to revise or reinforce already learnt knowledge.
noone expects people to study a semesters worth of material in a week thats called cramming
12-07-2005, 05:41 PM #28
Dam!!! Why didnt I see this thread earlier???!!?! Oh thats right, FINALS WEEK!!!!!!
Gotta say I cant wait til its over. I dont know about you guys but I go full-time. Plus I bartend 5 nights a week and manage to train a couple of home clients then head to the gym for a couple more. That doesnt even include my training!!!
Diet is decent b/c I am the only person in college that carries a lunch to school. I kind of hide it in my car then sneak it in . I dont care whats in the way or on the agenda, I need my food!!
I gotta go bang out this paper fellas, ttyl

My final got cancled due to my school freezing over... And you'd think that would be great, but actually it sux cuz i was ready (From Cramming) and now i have to recram to make sure that i retain some sort of knowledge... Yea its not the best thing to do, but i can't change that right now... Def not worth it though maybe in spring it'll be different
