I prefer this over the workout tracker (very useful but too tedious for my taste), so im gonna start writing my workouts here
I do one set of legs, then one set of back in each pair of exercises
BB squat - 3 sets, 8 reps x 275, 275, 275 lbs
BB Bent Over Row - 3 sets, 8 reps x 135, 155, 155 lbs
Leg Press (Machine)(One Leg) - 3 sets, 8 reps, 2 legs x 250, 300, 300 lbs
Lat Pulldown - 3 sets, 8 reps x 150, 160, 160 lbs
One Leg Squat - 3 sets x 8 reps x 2 legs x 0lbs
Straight Leg DL - 3 sets x 8 reps x 2 25lb DBs
Notes: I was in a rush since I got in an hour before the gym was about to close...I killed my legs, I could of went harder on the back but I wanted to make sure to do lower, upper and lats.

Notes: It was a monsoon outside, so I decided to use the little gym inside my apt complex, not a lot of variety but better than not working out at all. I think I'm gonna do some more back next time I hit the gym, but I def. feel all the areas I hit today!
Diet: I was feeling sick most of the day so I cheated alot just to get fuel into my body, but I was definitely happy I got over 200 g's protein and drank plenty of water.
Meal 1: Yogurt, Almonds, Whey Protein shake with milk
Meal 2: Wheat Bread, Chicken Patty, FF cottage cheese, FF cheddar, ketchup, sun chips
Meal 3: burger king...=/
Meal 4: Cytogainer shake with 16 oz FF milk
Meal 5: Rice, Veggies, and 2 stuffed chicken breasts (broccoli and cheese)
