    eye our eh grad-you-ate ... lol.. I crack myself up.. oh well..

    yesterday's blurbs::

    4/23/08
    morning weight:: 257.8


    :::the diet:::
    **UJD Day 05:: low cals
    IF:: 17hrs

    0500p- 4 scoops ON
    0745p- 1 scoop ON
    0830p- omelette:: 6 eggs, 3 slices ff cheese, 8 slices turkey breast; 2 cups cottage cheese

    calorie breakdown- 1786kcals:: 243p/46c/70f


    :::the workout:::
    off day..


    :::the cardio:::
    60 minute spin class... 5th day of low carbs.. yeah this sucked..


    :::the thoughts:::
    The diet is ****ing dialed right the **** in.. discipline is going great! Not really much urge to cheat, though I have a thought about burger about 10x per day.. lol. Plus constant urges for Olive Garden and Chipotle.. but all is going well and I don't want to **** up my progress..

    So.. my fiance tried out the spin class on Monday and really liked it so she asked me to go with her yesterday. I figured, eh, why not? Its my cardio day anyways.... **** that.. After 5 minutes the lactic acid buildup in my legs was ri-goddamn-diculous.. after 30minutes I wanted to fall off the bike and cry, after 60 minutes I did fall off the bike and cry. Overall it was pretty cool, but not on low carbs. I'll probably do it every other week with her or something along that lines but it's definately not a favorite of mine. I'd rather just go climb stairs for 30 minutes holding a couple 45lb plates, that's more appealing than doing spin class again on low carbs.

    The fiance keeps telling me how it's noticeable every day me getting leaner. Not sure what my bodyfat is right now, maybe 16%? But she's insisting she can tell a difference every morning I wake up. I've added an ab session and pushup "session" (on the perfect pushup) every morning. My abs are getting blasted and that perfect pushup works alot more than you'd think. I got it on sale at Target for like $40 bux just to get the blood flowing in the AM. I'd like to get some bands and the perfect pullup so I can do a quick full body circuit in the mornings to get me warmed up for the day. It really wakes me up and I feel better about myself for a few hours until I look in the mirror at lunchtime. lol. Mind you, that AM workout is nothing at all compared to a real workout. Just a quick 30-40 reps to get the blood flowing. The ab workout is 7 sets of 20 incorporatnig oblique work also, so it only takes about 5 mins, nothing serious at all..

    OK, I've got work to do.. adios..

    I'm pretty sure it's $40 everywhere..

    and you didn't answer me re: IF on high carb days.. being that I'm coming off of the load and in my anabolic phase, wouldn't the constant stream of cals throughout the day be better than IF for those first two days?? or should I go with the IF? your opinion?

    Im just thinking maybe it would promote better insulin sensitivity and adaptive capabilities toward IF... otherwise when you are just using it on low carb days where you arent really training then it is basically using the if diet parameters to suit how you feel like eating ie shove a bunch down at one time rather than stay consistently starved with smaller meals... you get me? Either way your body is primed to soak up those carbs just because of the mere fact that you are depleted.

    Im just thinking in terms of maybe the body adapts to not eating and all the goodies that IF promotes gets better as you progress in the diet eating like that on a daily basis. So in essence only eating half the week that way might undo that... so in terms of a body recomposition standpoint it might not really matter tooooo much.

    steven- I see what you're saying.. only problem is I don't workout in the evening on the weekends, I workout in the morning. Wouldn't that be negative to do heavy workouts on no calories and then NOT feed until 6-8 hours after my workout?

    yesterday's blurbs::

    4/24/08
    morning weight:: 257


    :::the diet:::

    *workout @ 630p-730p:: full body tension (minus legs/triceps/calves/forearms)
    0745p- 8oz turkey kielbasa, 1cup sourkraut, 1 scoop ON
    1030p- 4 scoops ON, 20 fish oil caps

    calorie breakdown:: 1625kcals:: 248p/48c/49f


    :::the workout::: full body tension

    flat bb bench- 225x10, 275x7, 275x6
    cable flyes- 100x8, 100x8, 100x8
    back - 6 sets
    ::warmup:: pulldowns- 120x15, stretching
    pullups- BWx8, BWx8, BWx8
    hammerstrength rows- (OH grip)3pps x8, (neutral wide)3pps x8, (neutral close)3pps x8

    seated db curls- 50x8, 50x7
    cambered bar vertical preacher curls- 80x8, 80x7


    :::the cardio:::
    20 mins stairmaster, weighed intervals::
    +50lbs for 5 mins @ lvl 3
    BW for 5 mins @ lvl 6
    +50lbs for 2.5mins @ lvl 3
    BW for 2.5mins @ lvl 6
    +50lbs for 2.5mins @ lvl 3
    BW for 2.5mins @ lvl 6

    the machine said 220cals burned, I'm sure it was more due to the added weight..


    :::the thoughts:::
    not enough time for the complete full body workout.. still need to hit legs, triceps, calves and forearms today.. will get that done at lunch with 30-40 mins of cardio.. the stairmaster beat me to ****, I was dragging the rest of the workout.. diet is still spot on though.. 2 more days to the carb load..

    That's some impressive pullup power you have. I wouldn't know what to think if I saw someone your size actually doing pullups at the gym. Most people are smaller than me and still using the counter balanced pullup thingy.

    **** I was tired today for some reason. I fell asleep on the way home from work then passed out on the couch until 730. I decided to not go to the gym so I had some soup for dinner as to not blast up the cals too high. Quite a bit short on the protein though. No big deal really, I'll make it up today.

    OK.. no more deads at the end of my back workout. I had no energy for these. The 365 wasn't even that heavy, just no energy or motivation. Same with the 405. I could have done a bunch more but just no energy. Going to put those at the beginning of the workout again as it should be. Need to get that deadlift back up in the 500s. Shoulders and Legs tomorrow.. excited for squats, lunges and stepups as well as side raises and db shoulder presses..

    Great workout, though I had to cut off 2 sets due to time constraints. ****, whenever I hit heavy legs and shoulders the workout takes me 2 god damn hours. WTF??? I can get through a heavy back session in 45 minutes but a heavy leg session takes an hour and 15 plus the delt session. It's ridiculous. I wanted to hit another set of each of the lunges and stepups, but I had to get going to work. My legs are totally fried today though. The squats were alot easier than I thought they were going to be. I'm excited to be repping 315 again. I want to work my way up to a 315x15 before I go any heavier. I guess we'll see how the next few weeks go. Recomp is really coming in nicely, as of this morning (5/2/08) I'm at 252.8lbs, total drop thus far is 15lbs for the last 6 weeks and I'm much stronger than I was 6 weeks ago. I'll take some progress photos after my next carb load. I should be looking ****ing fantastic in 4-6 months!

    guido- thanks bud.. I have another 20lbs of fatloss to go, not to mention the LBM I need to add.. I checked my bodyfat on 3/24 and it was 18.5% via 4site caliper. I'm going to get it tested again.. maybe tonight if the trainer that did it last time is there. I didn't take any other meansurements because I was disgusted with how I looked at 267lbs. At 252, I'm looking much better and I'm wearing my tank tops in the gym again. lol.. Mase is good, I see him at the bar with his friends every once in a while. I'll tell him you asked about him next time I see him. He's down to like 145lbs these days, looking lean!.... and small..

    nic- thanks bud

    mik- thanks dude, that shoulder workout took 30 minutes, the other hour and 10 mins was all legs. UGH.. I wish I could get through that faster without puking!
