I've been low-carb compared to usual this weekend, and have already noticed my belly bloat down. Saturday, I got sick and haven't worked out yet, so am curious what if any effect this change in nutrition will have on training. I'm hoping for none, or magically, makes it better! I did have carbs today and yesterday in the form of pita bread 30 grams, and however many is in the milk that I make protein shakes with. I want that to be enough to power the training while still low to drop water. Here is the video that made me do this:
Full disclosure, if that handsome USF doctor told me that eating snakes increased health I would be chowing down on one right now!
I want it all, to lose fat and gain strength at the same time. I am this close to squatting 135 for reps, in fact, today's session goals are squats 3 x 3 x 135, overhead press 3 x 5 x 65, bench press 3 x 5 x 85, deadliest 1 x 3 x 160. Monday nights are rough, so going in late. I will update this after the session.
Not too shabby. I did have a pudding cup right before going to the gym for a shot of carbs. Squats were 1 x 12 x air, 1 x 10 x bar, 1 x 5 x 65, 1 x 5 x 85, 1 x 3 x 105, 1 x 3 x 115, 1 x 2 x 125, 1 x 2 x 130, 1 x 2 x 135, 2 x 3 x 135, 1 x 2 x 135. NICE.
Overhead press light, 1 x 8 x bar, 3 x 8 x 55. Bench press 1 x 8 x bar, 1 x 5 x 55, 1 x 5 x 65, 1 x 5 x 75, 1 x 4 x 85, tweaked my bicep on liftoff for the second set and went to deads.
Deads 1 x 3 x 135, 1 x 1 x 160, missed the second rep, took a minute, came back with alternate grip, 1 x 2 x 160. 1 x 3 x 145 and done. I have video of the squats, been forever editing it down so you don't see me messing around w the camera.
Well the video that took so long to edit is completely crappy and probably not worth much as a form check. How aggravating that is!
