Hey guys! Jonas here and it's been a lazy Friday in New Orleans, raining a ton and we're under a flood watch. That means perfect time for the gym! I took the day off yesterday so my body could rest, and essential part of my workout regimen.

The blogging is coming along. I have added the workout page which will track my weights and reps, and I have been working on adding the diet page. Nate Warden, a fellow Miami University student, will be joining me in gaining 10 lbs. I've also been working on adding him to this blog.

The last bit of information is that I have a photoshoot scheduled for tomorrow. I will start taking biweekly photos to track progress visually. I also have my initial weigh in tomorrow. So wish me luck!

My chest workout from yesterday has now been posted on to the Workout page. Please check it out and give me some feedback! I will be posting my workout results there as it will free up some blog space for better and more interesting things.

I tried to up my dumbbell press to 95 lbs weights which I lifted last week, but being they were in the middle of the workout, I couldn't get them up except for 1 time amidst multiple tries. Still felt good. I didn't have a spotter for the barbells or else I believe I would have lifted more weight and done more reps. Anyone want to start spotting me on chest days?

Diet/Nutrition Notes:  (this will be posted on the diet portion shortly)

Before the workout, I took 2 scoops of N'Sane Pre-Workout, along with  2 Pre-Alkalyn tablets, 3 Fish Oil, and 1 Vitamin B Super Complex. (I took the PA tabs and fish oil again before bed.)
Post workout, I bought a Mo'Mass smoothie from the gym. It has 1,024 calories.
Later today, I ate 1 protein bar for lunch and for dinner had a chimichanga and some chips and salsa at a Mexican restaurant. I know my first order of business is definitely to up my intake. Pre-good night protein shake is about to happen.
