This past week I've been eating a small pre-wo meal. So far so good. I'm not sure how much it affects my workouts but I'm just happy to get some food in me after a night of fasting Decided to try some new exercises today for legs. Squats and DL still a no go - I still can feel a bit of soreness there after my workouts and when sitting. I'm new at Power Cleans so I warmed up with a lot of sets before I settled on 40 lbs. I'm going to continue to work on my form because I felt just a tad of strain on my lower back and knees and that didn't feel right. I also have this tendency to fling the bar a bit higher than it needs to go! It's a lot harder than it looks!

I was really, really, really dreading cardio today and needed something that was low impact on the hips, so I decided to try Zumba! It was a good workout, got me sweating a little bit. Then I ended my workout with a quick HIIT session, which after Zumba had my tank soaked! Good workout today, and glad it's over lol. My diet has been pretty good. I didn't eat very much after my workout yesterday. Actually I just took a shower and passed out, woke up around midnight and there were donuts on the counter - oh no! So... I mindlessly ate one. I felt kinda guilty but I didn't have much to eat that day! I definitely worked it off today though!

Need2slin helps with carb disposal... definitely dont need those carbs on cardio days. I cycle my carbs down pretty low on no weight days...Originally Posted by gokix811

Keep playing with your carb levels till you find your sweet spot. Right now I am around half a gram per pound bw and only around weight workouts.

I had to drag my booty to the weights to workout today! Once things got going I was motivated to finish the workout in ~1hr and I did! Got a crazy sweat going during supersets, especially when finishing the set with elevated dips! Really felt the burn in my triceps and even when my tri's started giving out at 9 reps I still finished strong! Hamstrings felt tight all day so I've been stretching them here and there. Hoping these BCAA's will help me recover!

Hey gokix I notice you did some sumo squats how did you like them? I love them as they don't bother my knees.

1 Hr Zumba
I don't know how much calories I burned but I got a nice sweat going. This one was a little more intense than the other session

Contact Twists 3x10
Grinding Contact Twists 3x10
Renegade Rows 3x10 each side
Planks 3x30 sec
Back Bridges 3x30 sec
Bird Dog 3x5 reps each side @ 10 sec hold
Bit of core work mixed with some hip flexor stretching. Lower back has felt tight/sore since last Thursday. After some googling, it looks like it might be a case of lordosis because when I look in the mirror my lumbar curve looks like it's curving inward and making my butt stick out when standing, more so than before. When I squeeze my glutes together my pelvis will rotate upwards and this feels like how it should be when standing. Hmmm... any advice on this would be appreciated.
