  1. So you guys were right. After a week, my back is feeling back to normal
  2. I can do that just find so I'll take your word for it
  3. Yea it's first time. I found something warning against rounding my back and that may have something to do with it. If you don't think that's possible to injure myself, then it must be muscle soreness.
  4. So I started doing deadlifts last Tuesday(70lbs) and the next day, lower back was sore. Same thing Thursday and even today, it is still sore.(Probably shouldn't have done deadlifts while sore ) It doesn't feel like a muscle pain though and that's what has me worried. I plan to stay off deadlifts until my back feels better(I do plan to work on my form in the mean time) but for anyone else who has dealt with this, how long did it take for the the pain to go away?
  5. Well there's two but the good one is reserved for athletes.
  6. I asked one of the football coaches. The only barbells are smith machines. Nothing free. And its legit school sports. Football, basketball, baseball etc.
  7. I did and a few days ago and they said no exceptions. Athletes only :\
  8. Honestly the only use for it lol. I've still got a long way before i reach the limit. I'm progressing slower than I hoped but I am on a deficit. And maybe I should start practicing on doing pull ups because I've never been able to do one before.
  9. So in a nut shell, my university gym is like Planet Fitness (mostly smith machines with some free dumbbells) with less pizza. I'm broke, my school is in the middle of scenic No Where, TX and the nearest gym is 20- 30 miles down the highway so no gym memberships. They have another, more fully stocked weight room but its for athletes only. I was able to work around this and put together a workout plan based on the free dumbbells alone but they only go up to 50-55lbs. Monday/Wednesday/Friday its: Dumbbell Squats-3x12 Dumbbell Bench Press-3x12 One Arm Dumbbell Rows-3x12 Dumbbell Deadlifts-3x12 Right now I really have no idea what to do if I pass that. I've never been part of a gym long enough to encounter this problem.
  10. While these are helpful, the wrong section . Sorry guys

  12. I look for healthy alternatives and stock up on them. 100 calorie chocolate almonds, sunflower seeds, beef jerky. Easily found at walmart But at the end of the day, it all comes down to serious self control. When I'm alone with my food and I'm stressed out doing HW, its hard not to just scarf everything down at once. The snacks should be a safety net in case you snap.
  13. Aight then, thanx. I guess I'm still stuck in the low carb=weight loss mentality. So now its: Protein:185g (1g per lb of lean body weight) Fats: 74g Carbs: 288g Calculated it all out and it matches my caloric requirement so I'll go with it
  14. Ok but what about the carbs because I put all that in and the carbs skyrocketed. I just always thought protein should be the highest
  15. http://iifym.com/iifym-calculator/ This is the website I'm using. I used the LBM calculator and 16% for the body fat with 1.25g for each lb of lean mass(the pre-selected recommended option). Exercise 5 times a week, 6'1 and 220lbs
