    lulz. it ain't all it's cracked up to be, i assure you.
    if i could eat this many dirty cals and get away with it..well, that certainly may be a different story.

    uhh..forgot to weigh myself this morning..

    making a change in immediate postWO nutrition, as i experiment with ways to get my cals up at strategic points.
    it's now ~725cals, same things i been using + now a bowl of fruit loops, so ~115c/55p.

    breakfast (doubles as preWO meal) also a bit larger these days, neighborhood of 750-800cals..
    again, these #s are being played with continually.


    training today:
    upper body, veering off the plan as it's last day before next stage starts on MON (which is bench + bent rows).
    so, started with some standing military press BB - 5 sets, started 135x12, worked up to 215x4 -- felt good thruout.
    followed with couple sets hi-pulls, some standing BB curls, reverse BB curls, then close-grip bench and finished with decline skullcrushers (very light on these - no issues).
    pretty happy with the day..pace was picked up, less rest/quicker set tempo - the sort of parameters i prefer and naturally thrive on.
    i think i'm ready for some full-blown action.

    Damn impressive with the standing presses of 215x4! That is serious business to be pushing that kind of weight overhead. The stabilization necessary is crazy. I truly am awed by that champ. Food note..I pushed my cals total a bit last night as well. A couple In-n-Out double doubles found their way onto my plate. Those are my favorite food vice and I savor every bite. Have a good one young man.

    oooo in-n-out double doubles - a man after my own heart.
    sounds good Joe!
    appreciate the feedback on presses - i don't consider it that strong, but let me say it was an effort, moreso than my bench the other day.
    still - upperbody strength has always been my strong point..funny thing is, i'm not a whole lot stronger on seated press than i am on standing.
    have a good one yourself!

    It all looks so good! Tomorrow I will be doing some cooking for the week. Today was a good day of grub for me. Turkey spaghetti, lean pork loin chops, baked beans, hominy protien shake with pb in it. Excellent grub.

    I haven't had In-N-Out in a couple years.

    I did get some good chicken kabob yesterday though! Had some of those caramel rice cakes as well yesterday. I love to mix up some protein sludge and toss it on those things.

    It is a grain, made from maize and can be a cereal or if soaked instead of beaten to remove the husk is basically a giant soft kernel of corn like substance it is what grits are made from.


    See nutritional info from Livestrong below.

    Hominy is a grainy breakfast food made from kernels of maize. Hominy can be eaten on its own or used as a side dish. Hominy can be prepared relatively quickly and is rich in carbohydrates, so it can be a suitable substitute for oatmeal or other energy-rich breakfast items. Hominy offers a number of nutritional benefits, so it might be a good food to add to your diet. Check product labels, as nutrition facts might vary among brands.
    Low Calorie Content

    Hominy can be nutritionally beneficial because it is low in calories. Each 1/4 cup serving of hominy contains just 130 calories. This amount is lower than many other breakfast foods, such as a 71 g bagel, which contains 270 calories.
    Type 2 Diabetes Food Chart Discover type 2 diabetes food chart. Great Diabetic options right here. WeKnowMedical.com
    Sponsored Links





    High Carbohydrate Content

    Hominy is rich in carbohydrates, with 29 g in each 1/4 cup serving. Carbohydrates provide your body with energy for sports and other activities, and the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academies suggests eating at least 130 g of carbohydrates daily. Because of the high carbohydrate content, hominy can be beneficial as a pre-workout meal.
    No Saturated Fat

    Hominy is a low-fat food, as it contains just 1 g of total fat in each 1/4 cup serving. Additionally, hominy contains no saturated fat. Saturated fat can increase your cholesterol levels and promote a higher risk of heart disease. For this reason, the American Heart Association recommends eating fewer than 16 g of saturated fat each day.
    No Sugar

    If you're looking for an alternative to high-sugar breakfast cereals, hominy can be a good choice, as it does not contain sugar. Keeping your sugar intake low can be beneficial, as too much sugar can promote tooth decay and an increased risk of heart disease.
    Iron Content

    Hominy is nutritionally beneficial because each 1/4 cup serving contains 8 percent of the daily suggested intake of iron. Iron is a mineral that is essential for proper transport of blood, DNA creation and energy metabolism, among other roles.

    okay, it's what i was thinking it was.
    (i had hominy once..ewww not a fan)
    what confused me was the 'protein' part, because i knew it was high in carbs - so, you put hominy in with protein?
    and then pb too?
    huh. well i guess i have some weird-sounding shakes too so i'll keep my mouth shut here.

    Awwww. There is a missing comma there. Punctuation makes all of the difference. The hominy was with the dinner. The pb and protein was in the shake. I was not a fan of hominy until my wife made it for me with some seasoning and it was pretty good. She likes it a lot, so I eat it with her when she has it on my higher carb days, one so none goes to waste and 2 it is not a bad source of carbs. One of my current favorite shakes is cake batter protein with peanut butter and unsweetened shredded coconut flakes. I plan to make one with some fresh pineapple and coconut soon but haven't got around to it.

    ^^

    lil pic from today.



    workout was solid (if not a lil painful from joints being tight from food overload hehehe), strength fair.
    once again loved the quicker pace (45-60sec rest) of today's set-up.

    10x3, 45/60sec rest
    A1) bb bench
    A2) bb bent rows

    Nice were you basically using the same weight or is your press much stronger than your pull?

    yes, it's more coconutty than coconut oil it seems, made from whole pulp, seems to be a bit more pliable than oil when in solid state.
    (ie - you can actually scoop a measured tbs up fairly easily)
    nice to have addtl fat options at hadn when i'm creating shakes.
    i say thumbs up.

    no chance to train yesterday..won't get to today either.

    finally got to work out today..clean & press was very cool (very draining tho!)

    weight at 204.2 upon rising..
    backed up the insane cal day with more 5k days, turned it into a full-on gain week..
    not the brightest thing to do tho - increasing cals at the simultaneous onset of reduced/nill activity.
    however - end result (ie moving the scale) was accomplished.

    We as bodybuilding fanatics tend to forget that we grow when we rest. Even though we know it in our heads our hearts say otherwise. I bet you had plenty of needed recovery happening and most of those calories went to taking care of just that. If not nothing a 24 hour fast wouldn't clean up without any muscle loss.

    Hey snags glad u were able to get a workout in my man. I agree with Kleen I'm sure you reaped the rewards of your rest.

    Another note, I'm sure you covered this but I'm feeling lazy lol, how many meals/how often do u eat? Also I see u eat a bit of lunch meat, is this pre packaged, deli cut etc? Do u care about sodium content at all. Incorporating lunch meat would be huge for me. I pretty much eat angus beef, tilapia, chicken and chicken sausage. Gets effing old. Any insight would be great.

    ha....i eat like every 2, 2.5 sometimes every three hrs (i start going bonkers if i go much beyond 3.5hrs - my kryptonite, if you will.)
    as for lunchmeat - most of the meat i get is from the deli. but - they been having good sales on oscar meyer deli pckaged meat and i been getting some of that..
    no, sodium is of no concern to me at all.
    hahahaa i'll ninja edit this a lil bit more..i usually combine deli meat of whatever source, with equal (or more) portions of superior meat such as ground turkey breast or lean beef, maybe tuna..

    I'm the same way, I tried IF/lean gains hated it! Beyond 3-3.5 hrs I go crazy lol.

    What types of lunch meat do u stick to? I personally love ham, and roast beef, not a turkey fan. Just picking your brain bud ill shut up if need be

    I agree with Snags unless you have high blood pressure sodium is not even a concern and even then with the amount of sweet potato and bananas that get taking in the sodium is not tipping the electrolyte balance in a negative way. People are far to sodium conscious. I like some deli / sandwich meats myself it is a great way to add that extra couple ounces of meat to an otherwise lacking dish.

    ^^ otherwise lacking dish hahaa love it!

    bean5er - i prefer the turkey breast varieties actually - mesquite and smoked..
    been grooving on roast beef and black forest ham lately (not a big ham fan overall).
    chicken breast is good too.


    solid workout today - if one can get excited over doing arms.
    the decline close-grip bench presses kept things interesting, and i didnt get too crazy on bb curls..
    good day.

    the next month of the plan looks like this:
    (there will be no set off days for me, as i train while my schedule allows)

    MONTH 2
    Monday (Chest and Back, 10x3, 45 sec to 1 min rest, load 5RM)
    A1) Bench Press
    A2) Bent Over Rows

    Tuesday (Calves, Legs, and Shoulders, 5x5, 2 mins rest, load 5RM)
    A1) Leg Press
    A2) Calve Press in Leg Press
    B) Clean and Press from Floor

    Wednesday (Biceps and Triceps, 10x3, 45 sec to 1 min rest, load5RM)
    A1) Decline Close Grip Bench Press
    A2) Barbell Curls

    Thursday OFF

    Friday (Chest and Back, 3x10, 45 sec to 1 min rest, load 10RM)
    A1) Bench Press
    A2) Bent Over Rows

    Saturday (Biceps and Triceps, 3x10, 45 sec to 1 min rest, load 10RM)
    A1) Decline Close Grip Bench Press
    A2) Barbell Curls
