Since I feel like I'm in kind of the same boat as you, just a couple years behind here's my questions:

- How did you deal with nutrition in college?

- Did you work out at your university's gym, and if so was it a pain?

Nutrition at college sucked, my freshman year was awful. I ate a ton of junk and got fat but also really strong. Then I tried to eat more vegetables and cut out the crap as much as possible. But it is very difficult to eat good on the college food. Once I moved into an apartment and started cooking I ate a lot better. That is the key, learn to cook a little bit and get your own place. I drank a lot of milk while on campus.

I worked out at my university gym, I was allowed in the athletic gym which was not much better. I went to a very small school. I tried to plan my workouts when not many people would be there. Either anytime in the morning since college kids do not do well with mornings. Or later at night, always had to avoid from about 2-5 in the afternoon.

You have always been aggressive about trying new approaches and learning your limits. How has this helped you? And how important do you feel this is for intermediate lifters who are inching closer to an advanced level?

I think this is very important. You have to push your body to limits, you are to force your muscles to grow and get stronger. I love seeing how far I can push my body.

I feel that your body can pretty much adapt to anything as long as you are smart about it. As long as you plan deloads, I feel I can push my body as hard as I can for a few weeks. I am a huge fan of 3 weeks of craziness followed a back off week. This has always worked for me. I like to give 100% in the gym and staying aggressive keeps you going. You have to attack the weights and push yourself. Progression is the key whether it is more reps, more weight or even more sets. You gotta find your limits and then blow right past them.
