I think "clean" eating is overrated. You can eat what you want, as long as you're not an idiot about it. Moderate and you're fine. I don't eat clean, but I eat smart. If I know I can only eat 2300 calories in a day, it'd be wise to stay away from Burger King. Calories and macros are what matters to me.
Skipped the gym yesterday, so today is legs and shoulders...I like the leg press and leg machines. I also like squats, deads, and other "real" movements. I know squats and that type of stuff is better b/c it incorporates more muscles and whatnot, but I think machines and presses have their uses, too, especially if you're wanting to target and isolate specific muscles. I did read a thing on bb that said machines aren't ideal for people who workout for sports/running/etc. because those isolated movements counteract natural movements you'd make in a game, where squats and stuff like that are movements you would make in a game. For me, my sports days are over and I'm working out 90% for aesthetics (the other 10% is for "late night" activities with the fiance
) I like to start a leg day with real movements like squats and deads and then go to machines to isolate dafuq out of my quads and hams

When prepping for your next test, don't use supplements. If you can't use them pre/during your test, don't use them to train for the test. Or just find supps that won't affect your bp
