Time for another attempt at a journal? sounds good.
Background- Training for Grappler's Quest on May 22nd, need to cut to 179 which is nessecary for bf purposes as well. Following a carb cycling diet outlined here. (http://www.avantlabs.com/magmain.php?issueID=15&pageID=159)
Weights 4-5x a week, with occasional HIIT and BJJ 3-4x a week. Might add a few days of wrestling if I can find a suitable club.
The only thing constant about my diet/training recently is BJJ, gym membership expired and im not renewing it but my school weightroom is open everyday now so it shouldnt be a problem.
Height- 5'9
Weight- 193.0 (14 off)
chest/waist/thighs/arms etc- no idea, dont really care
bf- senior year partying has brought me back to 15-16 range (which is probably my setpoint) buying some calipers soon.

Bench- haven't attempted one in a year, expect a low number.
Squat- we'll see monday
Dead- pulled 335 for no real reason on wednesday, max probably ~365
Cardio- Needs improvement.

I'll figure out a format and make my first entry tonight.

Note: due to me getting my ass handed to me at my last tournament, mainly because i shouldve been 1 or 2 weight classes lower, everything will be as detailed as possible, id appreciate flames if i mess something up </run-on sentence>

Dieting is oh so much fun, I hates it, however, best of luck with your carb cycling and the diet. :)

04-03-2004, 01:50 PM
It's like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

04-04-2004, 01:45 PM
Weekend update 4/03- 4/04
No carb day saturday
Low carb sunday
No training except for a completely random set of squats.

... Saw Gothika and was thoroughly pissed off for an hour or so afterwards.
I find it hard to believe that a movie could have; a decent setting (mental institution), a good premise (girl goes crazy, kills her husband), Halle Berry, Penelope Cruz, and Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz in a shower together and still suck so much.

Waiting on some sesathin and leptigen from avant.

PizDoff: *pulls guard on multiple armed attackers*
Rookie: Thanks. as much as dieting sucks, its better than being a fat mess.
Gal: Since you're good w/ this stuff, can you reccomend any songs from their first album , before the name change and everything?

04-07-2004, 04:15 PM

Full update tonight.

04-09-2004, 09:07 AM
Quick update:
Ate over maintenance slightly on wednesday and by about 500 cals yesterday.
Starting the avant products today and increasing my deficit a good deal.
Had a mediocre DE bench workout due to lifting alone.

04-14-2004, 06:19 AM
I've been sick since easter, wont post a full update until im better.
Sick on senior spring break... aint that some ****.

04-18-2004, 03:59 PM
no longer sick, squats tomorrow.

04-20-2004, 01:15 PM
going to a doctor to see if i have a sleep disorder.

Nice work on those Box squats, Wu.

No Carb Day

1: 2 scoops vanilla nitrean in water, 2 FOC
2: ~6oz Chicken Breast, 2 FOC
3: Chicken hot dog (8p,3f)
4: ~6oz chicken breast, ~.75oz mozzarella cheese, 1oz low carb whole grain bread
5: the chicken i'm about to eat, ~4 oz. 2 FOC
Fat: 34 305 28%
Sat: 9 82 8%
Poly: 3 28 3%
Mono: 7 64 6%
Carbs: 11 34 3%
Fiber: 2 0 0%
Protein: 188 752 69%

2.5 hours sub wrestling/BJJ

Pharmies: 3 servings sesathin, 2 servings leptigen rebirth, 1000mg vitamin c, 1 multi.

Other: 18 days of high school left, the senioritis i contracted freshman year will probably set in hard. Despite being sick and incredibly somnolent I moved around fairly well in BJJ.
In more important news, the teen heavyweight cutoff is 169 not 179 as i previously thought. Therefore I am cutting for purely aesthetic purposes since 169 in a month is not a good idea.

Weight(despite ****ty diet, and one* party over spring break): 191.2

*someone clearly hexed me, I'm never sick for a full week.

04-21-2004, 08:04 PM
Patty: Thank you sir.

Bench tomorrow, anyone reading should get a healthy self esteem boost.

04-26-2004, 08:52 PM
well, updates (and unfortunately training) have been sporadic.

3 Egg whites, 1 egg
1.5oz low carb bread (really just holds the sandwich together)
5oz turkey, 1tbsp mayo
6 oz chicken breast
3tbsp natty pb
2 scoops nitrean, 8oz apple juice (no idea why this is here)
Totals: no idea.

BJJ- 2.5 hours
Squats, 3x275x5 felt terrible, I wasnt even making parallell. If anything its reason to be more consistent and make sure my form hasnt slipped.
I was thoroughly pissed off at this point and squatted up from 135-285 w/ the other kids squatting. tried to go extra deep but was probably just breaking parallell if that on the higher weights.
Other: I was sufficiently depleted today, and had 3 hrs of (bad) sleep, this may have been a factor.

04-26-2004, 09:32 PM
Yes, sleep tends to help. ;)

04-27-2004, 07:46 PM
I've got work to do so quick update.

Weight room was closed when i got out of school, waited til i had to go. As a result of this i had to use my stepdad's bowflex (i haet that damn thing). so...
Seated ghey bowflex rows: all of those annoying rods x 85 total reps
Bunch of pushups, wide and narrow.

High carb day
Protien, a significant amount
Fat, mostly fish oil
Carbs, a lot.

the usual.

brevity is my friend.

04-27-2004, 07:47 PM
Rookie: sleep... is that the thing that involves me staring at my ceiling for hours on end and eventually playing fight night 2004 til my body stops functioning?

05-10-2004, 07:03 AM
just letting everyone know i'm not dead, 6 days left of high school been kinda busy.

05-10-2004, 07:25 AM
Oh yes! Somebody else on this board besides me listens to Norma Jean. I hang out with a couple of guys that know everything about the band. I'll try and get you a list of some good songs, back when Norma Jean was Lutacris. If I could recommend some other groups you may want to take a look at, UnderOath, Emory, Showbread, Brand New. All of these groups make some awesome music. Good luck with your goals by the way.

05-19-2004, 11:09 AM
1 final tomorrow, upon completion high school = pwned.

05-28-2004, 08:11 PM
