So yesterday (Sunday) I ended up not making it to the gym at all because of my back. I ordered jimmy johns for lunch and jimmy johns for dinner with a couple protein shakes with and in between. I carbed up, slept like a baby for 10 hours and my back feels much better, my sickness is already leaving (except for some fucking annoying nasal congestion), and I had plenty of gas in the tank for 2 workouts today.
My weight was 205 with full water and full carbs today before my first lift (after going to the bathroom takin a deuce and a piss) but I will settle for that and not getting sick and losing a shit load of water weight and having shitty workouts for a week or more.
my new approach is going to be to eat carbs that come from beans, vegetables, and fruit. sometimes for breakfast I will have up your mass (until its gone) or some steel cut oats. my protein is going to come from chicken thighs, ground beef, whey, and casein. I wont consume very much fat at all on training days except for a little EVOO or coconut oil and whatever is in milled flax.
I plan on training x2 a day saturday, sunday, monday, and tuesday. once wed and thurs, and friday completely off. on wed and thurs I will eat eggs, cheese, veggies, and fruit. but no beans or oats. friday will be all protein with a moderate amount of fat (70g will be my starting point). rather than counting calories and shit I'm just going to try a hormonal approach and nix insulin except for during training times. the increased frequency and whole food nutrition should really help, ill be taking naps when needed too which I really feel will help stimulate growth even while losing fat. We'll see how it goes.
I'll post my training routine as it comes.
Todays 1st workout was a high volume, high rep, bodybuilding style workout for biceps and back. I really focused on my mind/muscle connection, peak contractions, and adding in band work for some extra eccentricless work load
second workout was force spectrum ramping partial back squats, then FSR ATG back squat, then some light, high rep ATG front squats followed by a light ab circuit
