Nice work!!! Great reading! People generally say you should drink at least a gallon of water per day...

Hey, Nicholas!
It looks good program to me. Actually, I think everybody is different, and should try different approaches, and find out for himself what is best for him. There is no split, program, or exercise that suits everyone. I found out, for example, bench press does nothing for me, and that I make biggest gains with dumbbell press, but then again there are some guys that say bench press is the best exercise...
As for nutrition: it is not rocket science, you dont have to count all that stuff. Just eat enough, and dont eat junk. For me, lots of carbs and almost no fat is best ratio.
Just be consistent and focused, that is what matters.

I know it isn't hat great a workout, but I was really busy and figured 'Hey any workout is btter than none'. In additon I wanted to take it easy as I have lacrosse training this Friday afternoon, from 3pm-5pm, then a game the following day (Saturday). So that gives me a full rest day for tomorrow, and I will start next weeks traning on either Sunday or Monday.

(I WANT YOUR OPINION ON WHETHER TO START MY ROUTNE AGAIN ON SUNDAY OR MONDAY!!!!)



Diet Update:

I haven't really been keeping track of my food intake in the past two days, however, I tried to get in some serious calories yesterday by eating a whole pizza for one meal (never going to attempt this again as i felt extremely sick and sluggish after. The only reason why I did it was because my friends dared me!). It turned out that there was about 1000 something cals in the pizza 45g protein and a whopping 1900mg of sodium (Yuk!). I got a gluten free base although that didn't seem to help in the end.
