Im thinking about doing a bodypart split for 12 weeks after my diet to see the results. I feel i need to try it to see how it works and what the results are.
The skipload can allow for crap eatting within a certain time-frame right? It's something I glanced over and decided I would read more about when I got closer to my contest.
Consistency is the key to success within this sport...
Skiploading requires you to eat highly processed, high GI carbs with as low fat as possible. Thats where its different from shit loading where you eat high fat, high carb crap such as junk food. For my skipload i had cereal, white bread, marshmellows and low fat ice cream.
I actually feel its pretty interesting and i want to see what happens with my progress by using it for several weeks.
6x130kg (285lbs) <- Miscounted the weights.....
6,2,2,2x140kg (305lbs) <- PR!!!
DC stretches: Bicep, quad, hamstring
I was really happy after the first set of squats, because i thought i had a PR and it felt very light. I then found out i miscounted and only had 285. Dumb move... Took 3 mins rest and went for it. Form was very solid and the reps were deep and clean. Very happy with this as it didnt even feel too hard.
Rest of the session had my thoroughly worked.
Did some DC stretches and the quad one was very hard. Couldnt even do 20 seconds without shaking. Hamstring stretch was pretty solid and i feel it will help with my lower back issues.
Feeling very good at the moment. Diet has also been great the past couple of days. Hoping to get a good loss this week a long with the squat PR.
nice work on the PR Luna,
getting stronger and leaner and the same time = WIN

Nice loss, but i do feel a lot is water weight. Got up three times last night to go to the bathroom. Ill loosen up on the diet the coming days seeing as its easter and i wont be home. I also feel that the slightly higher calories wont be a bad thing at this point. Will bring proteinshakes to try and get enough protein in. Will be back on the diet as of Tuesday.
Will post last night's session later because i left my notepad at home.
Grats on the weight loss everything is moving in the right direction man.

Will definitely give bodysplits a try at one point and see how my body reacts and what the results are.
DC Tricep, pec stretches
I feel really burnt out on the bench press. Going to switch exercises for a little bit and hopefully get some progress.
Loving dips and rack chins.
I feel like there isnt much progress on my upper days so im going to switch in some exercises that i know i can progress on and work hard on them. My bench hasnt moved in weeks and has actually declined a bit.
50 reps total
Rack pulls werent great. Was warming up with the pins set at mid shin and my lower back was hurting pretty bad. I then switched to GM's but couldnt even work up to my workset because my lower back didnt feel like it. I then did the set of pulls from just above the knee because i wanted to get some decent work in. After that set my back was really sore and i aggrevated it pretty badly.
Couldnt bend over the next couple of days but its going a little better at the moment. Should be fine over the next couple of days though.
Took it easy for the rest of the session.
Had a great break from my diet this easter weekend, with lots of good stuff. Im back on the diet as of today and am feeling very motivated. The coming 4-6 weeks should give me some solid results. Hoping to finish this cut by the end of June.
Weighed in this morning at 217lbs, which isnt bad at all considering there will be some water weight as well. Im cutting back the calories the rest of the week to try and make up a little for these past couple of days.
I will miss out on 1 weight session and 1 cardio session this week as the gym will be closed due to public holidays. Ill use these days as a deload since i havent had one in a long time. Those days also normally involve bad food and lots of alcohol but im going to try and limit this as much as possible.
I plan on having a carb up on Sunday but this will depend on my weight and the amount of calories i take in, in those two days. I feel that the Skipload worked pretty well and i plan on keeping it in for the following weeks, if i can remain as strict as i should be during the week.
I don't know, those rack pulls look pretty solid to me. But ya, always listen to your back. Injuries can put you down for a long time.
Nice rack pulls Luna. Strong stuff.
