That is a healthy deficit right there.
Little fasted cardio this morning, and I'll hammer conditioning this evening. Nothing earth-shattering, for sure.
Did the early morning fasted thing. Raining like a mofo here so I just did some HIIT on the elliptical, then walked on the treadmill for 30', HR 130+.
Got my acceptance letter from Arizona State yesterday; going to work on my Master's online there, and attend University of Nebraska Med Center locally. Pretty excited-haven't been in college for like 15 years.
I'll train bench this afternoon. Prob cut back on the carbs a bit today; I know I said I wasn't going to track macros but I do/did. 400g carbs is just way too many for me. I'll prob dial those back to ~250 on training days, ~150 on non and I'll introduce a GDA as well. Pretty carb sensitive, and am prone to fat gain when I'm eating them in abundance. I'm already fat enough...I should prob be competing at 242, honestly.
damn... I've been awake for 3 hours and killed close to 160g.. you're gonna be hungry big guy lol
Bunch of warmup ****
I am trusting the Cube here...1 work set on rep day seems strange to me, but Lilly clearly knows being strong.
INCLINE DB PRESS
HAMMER HIGH ROW
Superset some curls & face pulls for the burn.
I was dog ass sick yesterday, and wasn't feeling that great today but IMHO I had a pretty strong session.
Now for my confusion; diet. I've been eating ERRTHANG, I'm holding weight at 283-ish after an initial surge of 3-4 pounds, and I feel awesome. Monday here's what I had;
M1-6 eggs, 1c egg whites, guac
M2-1/2g choc milk, 1.5c cottage cheese
M3-8oz pork loin, asparagus
PWO-protein shake, 2 PopTarts
M4-12oz ribeye, 1 sliced, grilled white potato
M5-Qdoba bowl w/black beans, pork, chicken, guac
M6-1.5c cottage cheese
This is a training day; non I usually cut out the milk, the PWO, and the white potato but the rest is generally the same.
Have I not been eating enough? I worked with Skip Hill for all of 2012 and dropped from 325 to 265-ish, then added back in some cals to get me around 275 for meets. With my injury I stayed 275-280, and that's where I am now.
Dunno, but I like it.
There's a video on Youtube by Bird Dog about building strength through warmups. It's a good listen. I'll link it when I have time.
I say eat more.
Subbed in here
SFW and GFH
Sqizzat day, son. Cube W1, Squats, EXPLOSION!
Bunch o' warm up.
Should've been 285, but I miscalculated the 60%; I calculated my 60% off of 90% instead of 95% 1RM. Oh well.
SNATCH GRIP CONVO DEADS
I love these. I'm still going lighter, but I'm really working the speed angle.
I also worked in a few sets of BW pull ups as well. Trying to get lat strength up
I also did some heavy, short burst prowler work as well. Really set the legs on FYAH.
I freakin love squatting right now.
looks good man, you're a ****ing big dude
