Friiiday! Friiday! (to the tune of that girl's awesome song)

A better one for today's session is from Chumbawumba but I forgot the name of it. Be glad you are spared my singing. Trying it again, five sets, three reps at 117.5 lb squats. Then, overhead presses, 3x5x65. Romanian deadlifts, 1x5x95, 1x5x100 lbs. Top it off with power cleans, 5x3x65 for fun. This protein thing is interesting, sometimes I have had to make myself eat it but after five days of this I am not bloated or fat-feeling. I haven't specifically reduced or started counting carbs, being aware of the amount of protein I'm going for made me eat less of the yummy, I mean carby stuff.

Which reminds me, last week I watched the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. The main guy, Joe I believe, did have an astounding amount of weight loss and regained health, but even as I watched it was obvious the man had nothing in the way of muscle tone. Curious, I went to the website and found, in the Frequently asked questions an inquiry of survival without protein for extended periods of time. Te response was that we have protein already in our body tissue that can be released. Um, isn't that a big part what our tissue is made of? I think the site just advocated the destruction of lean body mass.

Voodoo science aside, it does seem like a good way to force ingest a ton of nutrients. A couple of my friends tried it and only lasted two days, the kale in the main juice was unpalatable. On that note, I have just talked myself into a delicious spinach, cold water, hot sauce blend!
