My school gives about the same work over the summer. I hate it so much. I already did one AP assignment (Calc BC) and I have 3 left - Macroeconomics, US Government, and Spanish (yuck), which totals about 9 essays. Haven't written any yet and I go back to school this Thursday I'm just happy there's no work for Physics B.

For me so far, everything i've done in college has been easier than high school. We the People as the most difficult academic related thing i've done in all of my schooling and nothing in college has come close yet, sadly.

I bought one these back in 2005.

I still have it and it is in very good condition.

However I am getting bored with it. My next bag is coming from here:

So Kovalev was in Brewster, NY yesterday. My team's former goalie works there got a picture with him. He was there watching his son play. Apparently he's quite good. Said he scored 6 goals in the first period and then got another 4 assists, final score was 10-1. .

Today was the first day of some of my classes and someone asked the worst possible question one could possibly ask.

The professor thought the class was supposed to be 45 minutes instead of an hour and 15 minutes.

Right before the professor was about to let us out, he asked, "So are there any more questions?" so someone asked, "Do you always let us out this early?"

Gym rats of HFNYR - How bad is it to do the same workouts every day?

Here's my "routine" (in quotes because it's more or less a joke of a routine I think, I know I should be doing more)

Every weekday morning before breakfast I do 3 sets of 50 crunches (middle set is bicycle crunches), and in between those sets I do 30 pushups. I try to take it easy on weekends but if I can find time to before dinner I do 100 crunches and max out on pushups.

Then before lunch I do 4 sets of 20 bicep curls with 15 lbs dumbbells on Monday - Wednesday and Friday (I skip Thursdays and weekends).

Finally, every other day I either do 2 sets of 25 calf raises with 15lbs dumbbells and then 2 sets of 25 with 25lbs dumbbells. Days I'm not doing calf raises I'm doing 4 sets of 20 15lbs dumbbell squats.

I'm wondering if I should be doing things differently. Not doing crunches/pushups every morning, and doing a better job of splitting up my bicep workouts. Also, would anyone be able to recommend a new plan if this one is just way off of what I should be doing? I'm not the strongest guy in the world (currently 5'9"/137-140lbs [it fluctuates very often between that range]) but I'm really trying to get bigger and hopefully up to somewhere in the 160lbs range.

I'm not so interested in joining a gym, but know I'll probably have to eventually. I have 2 15lbs dumbbells, 2 25lbs dumbbells, and a flat bench.

I posted something similar to this in the 1st OT thread but it didn't get much love, anyone care to help here in part II?

Any advice/help would be appreciated!

Ugh, that's painful. It's like the kids back in high school who would ask the teacher if there was any HW when they forgot to mention it.

That's the UB bookstore for ya.

For future reference, you can pre-order them online there's never a wait for that. You can just stroll into the bookstore and pick them up when they're ready to pickup for you.

Pretty sure doing abdominal workouts every day doesn't do much. Do it every other day (even every three days is fine) and substitute it for another workout.

Apparently I have pieces of paper, from actual colleges, that say I should know something about this.

Your muscle's require rest.

In fact rest is probably the most commonly overlooked aspect of working out. People are always concerned with things like "Am I doing enough", or "What else can I do?" When often the answer is you should take the day off.

You wouldn't run around for three days straight without sleep. Your muscles deserve sleep too.

Personally I am a big proponent of working out two days a week. My workouts are body weight only workouts, and I only work two days a week.

Thanks for the advice.

Care to share your routine?

I also have paperwork from my university that says I should be able to answer this question.

Currently I alternate between 2 whole body, body weight exercise routines 4-5 days a week. These workouts are about 30-45 minutes in duration, and the rest of my day is spent resting/laying low. It's not too bad on me.

I was in your same shoes though. A few summers ago I was tipping the scales at about 135-140ish pounds. After a summer of working out 3 days a week and increasing my protein intake every day, at the end of the summer I was up to about 150-155.

The nutrition is key. If you want to gain weight, you have to increase your protein intake, be it through the food you eat (the more preferable option) or protein shakes if you don't have the means to increase it via your diet. As for how much to take, the general rule of thumb is you take the amount in grams that you want to weigh in pounds. So if you want to weight 155-160, you should get 155-160 grams of protein per day. There are plenty of calorie tracking apps that are free on iPhone/Android.

The way I see it, you have two options: workout every day and alternate what you're working out (day 1 abs, day 2 legs, day 3 arms, etc) or work out 3 days a week doing what you're doing now.

Hope this helps!

I've gon in the past, and have gotten the stadium seat. It is a lot more expensive, but it seems worth it. Usually I try to go about a week in, so you get some better matchups.

There is absolutely nothing revolutionary about my workouts. Maybe evolutionary?

I follow Primal Blueprint Fitness, which you can get for free by signing up for the newsletter here. Green box where it says "Free 92 page e book".

Basically it is the following exercises:

Pull Ups
Front Planks
Side Planks
Squats
Overhead Press
Push ups

Each of those exercises is broken down into 9 levels skill levels. Level 1-3 are for beginners. Level 4 is proficiency. Levels 5-8 are advanced.

So when you start you perform a self assessment (its all covered in the e book), and based on how you perform in the assessment it will give you your starting level for each exercise.

When you reach the goal # of reps for a level, you advance to the next level. It is pretty simple.

I do it two days a week and track my progress via Google docs. One week every 6-8 weeks I will take the week off, and not do anything at all. If something feels "off" I may also take a week off or only workout one day.

There is a little more to it than what I have mentioned, but this is the gist of it.

monday through friday second week are usually the best combination of price and match quality...especially day sessions if you can swing that with your schedule/tolerate the potential heat

Yeah, I work weekday mornings. So I usually try for primetime, unless I have an open weekend. I hate the heat, but I would manage it for a sporting event; except Day Met games, that's just pointless.

Never been there.
I remember from somewhere that you like Chinese food right?
I'm a foodie/$$$$restaurant snob (I don't mean to sound rich or anything ), but the thing with NYC restaurants is that a lot of restaurant will throw up the prices, decor and throw down everything that mirrors Michelin star restaurants except for the food and the service and MGMT.

The menu looks uncomplicated even though it's in some ways elaborate but Asian restaurants especially Chinese and other Asian restaurants with elements of Asian fusion tend to be able to have a lot of items on the menu without clogging up the kitchen and affecting efficiency.

I know there's one in Vegas as well so without a doubt I'm sure they have phenomenal food and the food seems to be focused and the concepts are clean while carrying a lot of finesse and punch.

Hong Kong Chinese carries a much more.... lively and what one might call a more acidic and more vibrant punch than the classic traditional flavors of Chinese food. With the Thai and Japanese they fuse in and the "NYC factor" (which is essentially where everything has to have some posh element or another that people are familiar with (going through the menu I see fingerling potatoes, fillets,
"Kobe" which btw isn't real Kobe), the food should be more lively than fine dining Chinese let's say.

Sorry for the rant. If you like Chinese food, I can't see how it's going to be anything but fantastic unless you order something completely not to your preference Don't **** it up.

You're just saying that to make everyone else jealou s
