    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....

    Yea man school can be a problem. I can always get my workouts in, but I personally beleive that stress and stuff can hurt your workouts. It's like all these papers and tests the week before finals then finals week, wheres the logic in that how are you supposed to get ready for a test based on all the material of the year in less than a week

    Just read Narks journal. That sucks

    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.

    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.

    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"

    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

    not if some of your tests are not cumlative. So I have a test on say chapers 4-5 then for finals its just another test on chapter 6-7 in less than a week on top of the other tests now that sucks. plus for the ones that people have on friday before finals then having a test the following monday??? It's just this dumb ass school they make everything harder on purpose just because its penn state and that comes right from most of my teachers mouths word for word psu

    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
