Sorry I didn't blog on the 29th. Nutritionally, I tried t work in an extra cheat meal with a huge triple cheeseburger and large fries for lunch and it didn't really fit into the logging program. My goal was to hit well over 4,000 calories and I failed. I felt pretty sluggish for the rest of the day and was more sore than I should have been from training today. I think my days of eating junk like that are numbered. Eating strict most of the time means that you notice crap like drive thru food…Continue

20 MINUTES ALTERNATING PULLUPS AND HINDU PUSHUPS
Had a gift certificate to Olive Garden sitting on the counter for literally months, we decided to finally for dinner today. There is hardly anything on the menu in that place that looked appealing and wasn't simply a wheatfest! Got a steak and ate tons of salad.

Easy back squats. 6X3 @ 275#.
After Friday's epic cheat meal I really didn't have much appetite. Had some Mongolian BBQ for lunch about 130pm (just vegetables and meat, with lots of curry, ginger, garlic and red pepper sauce).
For dinner I just had a big salad and some of these really yummy crockpot chicken thighs Stacey made.

Sleep last night 12:00a-8:00a
12oz mocha with almond milk and half the sugar of a normal mocha
Eggs, arrowroot powder (blended into crepes. Crepes are pretty much my favorite thing ever), a small scoop of white rice, coffee, almond milk, a sliver of butter (maybe 1/2 tablespoon)
Homemade pizzas! We made paper-thin crusts and topped them with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, and a drizzle…Continue
Not much today. 20 minutes alternating pullups and bar dips at around 1030am.
Now this is how a cheat meal is done! Hamburger on a GF bun and tons and tons of fries. Washed it down with a Bud Light (a GF beer) and a little gelato after.
Unabashed American junkfood. For some reason this is just what I crave. I think the reason I want something so simple and such junkfood rather than something more upscale for a cheat meal is…Continue

Back squats. Yes, something I have almost never done because my legs explode when I do them. This is mostly as an experiment to correct some imbalances. Will give this a few weeks and see. I'll keep the weights light, the reps low and the rest time long and focus on ROM and really engaging the hip. Using a modified cycle at a lower weight just as a template.
6X2 @ 275# today.

Swinging the 40#s for my sets of 6 and 10 and the 35#s for the sets of 14 and 20 seriously takes it out of me. I was wiped.
