Having been back training for 6 weeks now after a forced 13-week break from training, my fitness is slowly returning. Training has been different the last 4 weeks - a lot less than Maintenance, but enough for my body - and I've made some interesting progress (you can review the last 4 weeks at The Female Terminator Trains to FREE TEST
). But now, it's time to step it up a bit - when my body crashed, I had to forego the competition I'd planned on doing, making the first one I will be taking the stage for in just under 13 weeks. Although I'm still trying to get back to my normal level of fitness, I'm going to be hard on myself and demand that I be in competition shape within the next 4-7 weeks, giving me plenty of time to make any adjustments, etc. as required.
For two weeks pre-FREE TEST
, I used T-911
and Anadraulic State GT
to 'kickstart' me back into training. This log starts my competition preparation and will detail my journey until my tub of Anadraulic State
GT is finished, giving a longer review on T-911
and Anadraulic State GT (as well as observing the effectiveness of the T-911/Drive/IGF-2
Please note that whilst my goals may not be reached before the end of this log (which is dependent on when my tub of Anadraulic State GT runs out), they are what I am aiming for over the next 4-7 weeks:
* Body Composition of 7% bodyfat (8% bodyfat is acceptable, but if I can get leaner, then I want to be leaner)
* Resting Pulse of 30-32 beats per minute
I'm starting this log at:
* Body Composition of 12.6% bodyfat
* Resting Pulse of 40 beats per minute TRAINING
Training is going to continue for a bit along the lines of what I have been doing the last 4 weeks, which is still very much a 'Back to Basics' routine.
Sunday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes
Monday: 20-40 min Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Gym
Tuesday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes
Wednesday: 20-40 min Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Gym
Thursday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes
Friday: 20-40 min Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Gym
Saturday: V-Burn Challenge Circuit + Stretch 20-30 minutes
I might change a few things, like when HIIT is done (as it seems to work better for me pre-gym), but in essence, I will be doing 20 minutes of both cardio and stretching a day, as well as 3-4 resistance sessions a week. SUPPLEMENTS
