Cheat day

Yesterday was my cheat day. Biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast, scone for a snack, chimichanga for lunch, pizza for dinner, some morels and chocolate mousse with raspberries for dessert. Fasting from lunch today until lunch tomorrow.
Last night did a few sets of single leg DL with 16kg, mostly triples. Suitcase DL x 95# x doubles, can't remember sets. DL moves tested positive but not spectacular.
Did a couple horseshoe ISO's and they tested very well. Goblet squats x 16kg x 5 reps x 3 sets tested well too.

I came up with a crazy concoction for dinner tonight but the flavors and textures were awesome. Nitrate-free bacon fried then add and sauté shallots, garlic and curly kale. Season with salt, crushed red pepper, top with Parmesan, avocado and sardines.

Past 2 days have been LOW carbs, tomorrow is cheat day. Looking forward to biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast.

Saturday's training. Snatches 16kg, :15 sec on :15 off. 4 reps per arm per :15 x 12 mins. 96 total reps.

Monday: Ring pushups, sets of 3, pinch block DL 35# , chest expanders

Tues: 1 set of 15 20kg rows R/L , reps done quickly. Farmers walk 2- 24kg 70-80 yds

back to the blogging world

I've been MIA for a while but all is well. I've really found my groove with the biofeedback testing. I train 3 days per week, usually Monday is a pressing day of sorts, KB presses, barbell MP, dips, etc. Wed has worked really well as DL day. I get some of my best training on this day. Big gains in volume and weight. Last night I pulled 255# conv DO for the first time in a very long time. Friday or Sat has been more of a play day with emphasis on circuit training. I've been using Battling ropes some, I'm not sure I like the undulations or rope pulling better, both are a LOT of fun. Doing some swings and snatches also. I do some active recovery and core stability work on Tues, Thurs.
I was trying to do some running in my VFF but have slacked off. By end of summer I'd like to complete a 5k in them with a respectable time, for me, under 25 mins. I'm in a race with a friend to see who can sculpt the best 6-pk abs by August. And just for fun I'd like to pull 300# DL by then.
My training will probably add in a little more interval training with explosive moves such as sprinting, snatches and swings. I'm going to play around with some diet stuff also to achieve these results.
Overall I'm feeling good, both physically and mentally and I'm making good progress. The plan is to stay a little more current with posting my training logs.
