Diet has been very bland lately, I'm trying to cut out artificial sweeteners.. looks a bit like this
1) Oats, banana, chicken
2) Oats, banana, whey
3) Sweet potato, chicken, greens & veg
4) Same as 3
Cutting down volume of workouts a little bit, I don't really like that, but I don't want to end up having to take another week off from overtraining/getting sick again. My gym bought some pretty new dumbbells, and benches so I was using them all day.. they remind me of the formula one grand prix... they are seriously cool!
Eating some more carbs as well and it seems to help with mood and recovery. Leviathan is 2 caps pre-workout now, and one later in the day. Still going great. Despite my uppage in carbs, tummy is shrinking! Down 1.5cm since the beginning. But I am always thirsty!!

Nice, DBs are my favorite things to use in the gym.
Are you changing up your routine a tad, or are you still going high volume, balls out style?
07-17-2007, 12:27 AM
Well some slight changes. I've dropped a couple of isolations (which equates to ~5 sets per workout), and instead of extra post-workout cardio, I'm going for an hour long session at night. Usually I would be tempted to go for extra cardio at night anyway, this just makes my lifting sessions a bit shorter, and so I can go home eat and get to recovering. That's the theory anyway!

Sure you do, you post amongst female-starved boys here. You must have balls.
That's a better plan, in my opinion... I would rather split cardio up (if I ever did cardio that is) to later in the day, as I use too much of my ATP/glycogen for my workouts... I would be on empty by the time I threw down the cardio....... catabolic one would say.

Actually you guys found me out, I tend to make friends with guys a lot easier. Girls are whiny and *****y. That's why I like boys
I rest my case.

Wednesday 18th July - Legs, cardio
... leg extensions ...
15x25kg 10x35kg 8x45kg
... leg press ...
10x120kg 6x140kg 6x140kg
... db lunges ...
2 sets: 10/10 x 12kgs
.. then I did some light squats, front squats and stiff legged deads
8 sets x8, working on form. I usually go below parallel but today they were all a2g. My abs felt like they had a pretty good workout.
... standing calf raises ...
2 sets x 30
... lying hamstrings ... almost "forgot" to do these
10,10,8 x 17.5kg
Cardio: 1 hour ... stepping, jumping, random fun sh1t.
Not the bestest of workouts, I actually ran out of steam halfway through and felt kinda dizzy, which is why I took it a bit easier towards the end.
On an unrelated note, saw an old lady hobble down the road with a walking stick in the freezing cold. I felt saddened, almost to the point of tears...sometimes I feel like I just take for granted my relatively comfortable lifestyle. I sit in my room with my heater on full blast, and I'm thinking that lady is probably freezing at home with her old clothes on and no one to take care of her.. I hate feeling bad about things like this, and I feel so helpless

awww......what a kind soul. I think everybody takes something for granted and you would be amazed how such a little thing that goes so unnoticed really means to you when it is gone. Chewing is a good example, i found that out first hand, not being able to eat solid foods really screws you up.
07-18-2007, 12:24 PM
yea its so easy to take things for granted ... you miss them when they are gone... i learned that the hard way as well this year when my left arm was immobilized for months... its such an alien feeling to try to adapt when your suddenly disabled
07-21-2007, 04:17 AM
overdid it at a party last night.
shouldn't have checked... the damage = +3lbs grrrrrrrrr
Grrrrrrrrrrr never drinking again. Hope weight goes back to normal after a couple of days back of good eating.

Sunday 22nd July - Back, cardio
Worked out with a mate so here's some of the stuff we did, about 3-4 sets of each, with little rest between sets.
BB rows 4x15
Db rows 3x12
Lat pulldowns 3x15
Straight arm pulldowns 3x15
Cardio: 20min elliptical @ level 10 (I rarely check because I don't think they're that accurate, but today I did and the hr monitor said I was at 170.. felt more like 120...) Cardio is almost getting too easy!
Form was pretty good, felt great MM connection today. Also took 2 leviathan pre-workout.

hey meanie, this is what I'm eating..
Let me see if I can remember the prices
..chicken breast in the corner $10/kg, that's a bit more than 2kg there to last me about 3 days I think if I eat it at every meal
..lots of green tea
..almonds, avocado, mixed nuts, fish oils, sesathin
.. cauliflower.. just coz it was cheap, I can't afford broccoli right now since it is $7bux a kg and I eat a LOT.
.. strawberries, these are about $4 a punnett. One a day keeps me happy.
2nd pic - MMmm carbs, but its not pizza
07-22-2007, 05:01 AM
$10/kg for chicken breasts? damn, thats pricey. I hope its boneless at least for that. Can get boneless breasts in the US for half that. Looks like a good overall meal plan tho, i'm hungry now

suckas! Heh I'm not hungry much.. coz I'm eating the same things..
5 of 6 meals today looked something like this:
4oz grilled chicken
10 almonds or walnuts or cashews
1 cup greens (asparagus, broc or cauliflower)
fish oil or sesathin
My oven broke, literally
Easy, they're usually about $9-10/kg.. in your currency probably about $8ish.. kangaroo and tuna are probably cheaper, but I'm sick of eating them now.

I've been eating 60 almonds a day, for the past 4 days ~10 with each meal. Tomorrow I will buy some walnuts and maybe cashews for an incredibly exciting change, and it looks like my avocado has ripened so I'll eat that as well. Since I have no carbs to look forward to, I look forward to eating NUTS. Hah.
