Training Log & Nutrition Summary: Week of May 13th, 2012

TRAINING:


I started a new program Tuesday which should produce some mass gains. Mid-range reps with multiple sets and a short rest period between sets. I also started incorporating sprints and heavy deadlifts on alternate days. After 4 days of this, along with my regular workouts, I'm already noticing a difference in terms of leaning down.

I've also made a point to do some foam rolling after my gym workouts.

 


Sunday, 13th:

- No workout but measurements were done. No real changes after the 3 weeks of heavy squats, deadlifts, presses & pullups. But the point of those 3 weeks was to increase strength (not necessarily mass), which I did, in preparation for the next program.


Monday, 14th:

- Rest


Tuesday, 15th (Start of new 3 week program):

- 20 Snatches per arm w/the 26

- 8 sets of 8 each with 30 seconds rest between sets:

  • Double KB Front Squats with the 35s
  • Ring Pushups for the first 4.5 rounds - Hindu Pushups for the remaining 3.5 rounds
  • Ring Rows

*Took about a 3 minute rest between each exercise. Jim- if I should be taking less time, let me know

NUTRITION SUMMARY:


Sunday was Mother's Day during which I was lax and enjoyed myself. Monday thru Thursday my nutrition was spot on aside from a couple handfuls of tortilla chips. Friday I had a chicken tender sandwich from Carl's Jr at lunch. There was also a retirement party for my Mother-in- law that evening where I allowed myself some cake, one small cookie and a few sips of punch. It's been a long time since I had cake. Today, I had one handful of tortilla chips in the afternoon and a couple bites of a pancake in the morning. Otherwise, my nutrition was clean. A couple days this week I did have a 1/2C serving of oatmeal in the morning. The only thing I really find "threatening" about oatmeal would be the unnecessary carbs. But with the extra work I've done this week, those extra carbs haven't been a negative thing. So, there were some discrepancies, but mostly contained to Friday.
