I'm on my tenth day of the anabolic diet, still in the transition phase (only three more days till my first feast!) and Monday I will be going directly from the transition phase to the cutting phase and will drop the calories. So far I'm suprised as to how much energy I actually have in the gym considering I'm only eating about 20 grams of carbs a day. I have more energy than when I tried a low carb plan with about 200 grams per day!
For the training I've been on a new routine the same time as I've been on the AD. 5 (short)days/week, all compound exercises, with new exercises being cleans, snatches, and overhead squats. Lot of work to do with the cleans(up to 150lb, but I'm sure the form is horrible), a bit tough to learn on my own I'm finding out, in my gym only biceps and pecs exist, and exercises that are difficult don't.
Just tried for the first time snatches and overhead squats Tuesday. I thought it was OK for the first time, was only using up to 80lb though... Still feel good soreness in my delts though.
I'd already started these exercises when I posted, just wanted to make sure I wasn't doin something wrong. I think I'm going to continue to work these, but light weight, high reps, and short rest intervals so I can try to perfect the form and boost my metabolism at the same time, what do you think?
