Today was supposed to be an off day, the past 2 days I've been pushing pretty hard. I got home from work, and ate some McDonalds. I couldnt accept the fact that I would eat that garbage and not workout. So, instead of Rest. I did 30 muscle ups on the olympic rings in the garage, followed by static handstands than static back lever and planche, also did 3 sets of jackknifes on the rings.

I felt great after the workout, slammed a shake with some glutamine. Now i'm good.

Diet was clean as can be until McDonalds. 1 shake, 2 boneless chicken breast, 1 raw yellow pepper, 1 tomatoe, 2 fried chicken breast, 16 mcnuggets oreo shake, 1 shake, and I'm going to make some eggs with turkey sausage for dinner yum yum :)

Also drank about 10 glasses of water, and still going!

EST Macros: 260 g's protein
120g's of fat
100g's of carbs

Found it!

I was wondering if you already made your journal so i looked for it and here it is! First of all, don't get dissapointed if you don't get replies immediatly or if your journal gets pushed a few pages back, this is quite an active section of the forum so! Just keep bumping it with your workouts and diets etc..

It's good that you felt you had to workout after McDonalds, but everyone or almost everyone has a cheat meal now and then, my dad goes to the gym with me to work on his condition and loose some pounds and work of some centimeters of his waist, but he still drinks now and then still goes to restaurants..it depends on your goals, he just wants to maintain his body as it is, tone his muscles a bit, get a bit of a tinner waist etc.. I'm not a diet specialist, but a female friend of mine went to one and she didn't have to drop everything at once either, you need to built it down or however you say that?

Anyways it's a good thing tho that you felt you had to work out a bit! I wish i had olympic rings btw.

I'm curious to see more of your routine and diet i'm not the food specialist, but i'm sure a lot of people could help you on that aspect!

I don't know how long you have been training but this is an interesting article: http://www.simplyshredded.com/the-bodybuilding-bible-a-complete-list-of-63-rules-to-grow-by.html
(sorry for the advertisement, but ey their forum sucks so it doesn't matter)

Ps. Never give up.

Thanks Shemz! nice article, and have read most of that information before, but was definitely a good reminder of some of the supps I've been slacking on! One thing I was particularly interested on that article was about the #19 Try Beta-Alanine. Which I plan on implementing!

I most likely wouldnt have cared if I would have ate my McDonalds on the right days for me (Sundays). My diet has been strict, but i've still been eating alot of food. Mostly I keep my diet like this

Monday - Friday : Protein: 240 + Carbs: 100 - Fat 140+ which is around 2400 calories
Saturday I up the Carbs, keep the other macros same tho so looks like this for saturday: Protein 240+ Carbs: 200-250 - Fat 140+ which also makes the calories higher to about 2900-3000. Ok
Sunday is Carb Load cheat day: Protein 250+, Carbs 400+, Fat 200+ Which would make my calories somewhere near 4600.

My training regimine has been changing constantly. And it's quite complicated. But I will likely continue with the journal daily, so you are of course welcome to check it out and let me know what you think! In a nutshell, I started with a Bodybuilding routine, went to Starting Strength, than to Powerlifting / Metabolic Conditioning, now I'm phasing in Plyometrics and Static Holds . :)

Had 3 days off. I needed it.
Did a short 30 minute workout in the garage. L seat dips, handstands 5 sets until I felt my form was deminishing which was usually after about 10 seconds of work. I also kicked the bag, and did some jumping drills.
So far slammed about 120gs protein, 60g's carbs, 50gs of fat and I need to catch up.
I am going to the gym later for a Strength workout and basketball!

Post about it later.

Tonight went to the gym and did SS, A routine. I could barely make it thru the workout! Squat was @ 245 x 5, Bench 215x5, deadlift was 355 x 5, finished up with 3x8 pulluips. I'm not going to try to workout before a strength day this exhausting again! Especially while i'm cutting! EHH
also Played 2 games of bball, then went in the jacuzzi to relax a little bit.

Went to the gym, did my accesory day! which ended up being. 5 sets of ring pushups / handstand holds for time (superset) Reverse pushups 3 x 10 (rings) 3 sets of knees to elbows on the rings till failure. Also played a game of bball, and went in the pool. Fairly light and low active accesory day, but I did feel hammered from Starting Strength, and didnt want to push it too hard.

SS workout A Today Squatted with 245 Bench 225 Deadlift 315 Added Skullcrushers 3x8 @ 75lbs and hammer curls 55x8, 75x4, 80x2 and decline situps and hyper extensions. I took it easy today, wanted to ease back into the workout before pushing as hard again. I started squat with 275 but after a week layoff from being sick with some sort of bug and barely eating. I just didnt have the strength coming back. Im going to determine if I need a deload after next workout. I'm getting frustrated with stauling in my gains, but I guess getting sick and carb cycling may do that? I got into the pool and did 10 2ft submerged L seats to handstand to standups with not the best form. Well tomorrow is another day!
