    Week 6 Update

    Blood test results came back normal
    Was 67kg this time last year. Started lifting from April/May of last year and now 76/77kg fully hydrated and full stomach. Was worried that this was hormonal but alas, I must have been eating too much

    Given up on French Baguettes.
    They tasted wonderful but I would eat massive portions of them.

    Currently weighing in at 76kg and have put on size able muscle in the upper body. Too much. Afraid that I may reach a weight far, far too high for my 5'10 frame.
    That's why I'm now going to the gym twice a week.
    76kg is not a lot at 5'10.

    It is considering I was 67 a year ago.

    I'm a student, not a boxer
    :lolwut:

    That doesn't even make sense. It might as well read I'm a student not a Chinese banker - you make no sense.

    It totally depends on whether you just want to boost your fitness a bit, or if you want to see real results. I revised for my finals for 10-12 hours a day on average (IIRC I peaked at 16 - madness!) and I was at the gym every day. Could you fix the situation by cutting down on that time it takes to get there? I can't imagine that you couldn't find a spare 5 hours in a week to work out, that did not have to be taken from your study time.
