Well, I’ve started a couple of different logs here and abandoned them all. Gonna stick to this one. Took the last couple of weeks off due to an infection and a pinched nerve in my left shoulder. Had to take antibiotics for the infection and they sucked the juice outta me. Weight’s down to 172lbs in the morning. Goal is 185 by spring time. Probably drink a little more than I should but my diet is pretty solid [for me anyway]. I eat pretty much the same thing day in and day out, but occasionally grab a burger or pizza or something. Basically I enjoy eating “good” food but if I feel like eating something else I will. Here’s what a typical day of food is for me-
Breakfast- 6 jumbo egg omlet with spinach and mushrooms, apple, orange
shake-1 scoop casein, 1 scoop whey, banana, 1/2 cup oats, spoonful of natty pb
Lunch- mush [I cook 1.5-2 lbs of 93/7 ground beef, 2 cups brown rice and one big ass can of black or ranch style beans and mix it together. I get 4 servings out of this. I add spinach or broccoli and presto- Awesomeness]
Dinner- big ass piece of salmon and veggies.
I’m a trainer at a large globo gym so my days usually start pretty early. I’m gonna be lifting 4 days a week [M,T,Th,F] and it’ll usually be about 2 hrs after lunch [mush meal]. Following a 4 day lower/upper split. Anyway…
1- jump rope [100 reps] foam roll, dynamic warm-up hang cleans- barx5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x3x5. These felt good. Was worried the shoulder was gonna bug but got all 3 sets of 5 fairly smoothly. 190 next week.
DB Split squats with back foot elevated- 50’sx3x8
GHR’s on a seated calf raise-3x10
Standing calves- 3x10
Had one knee surgery a little over a year ago and was diagnosed with severe tendonitis and Osgood Schlatters in the opposite knee. Goals are to get strong as shit, get to and stay a lean 185-195 and regain my speed and hops. Can still dunk a ball fairly easily but can’t get it like I used to. On Wednesdays and Saturdays I’ll do some kind of conditioning, be it running hill sprints, working the heavy bag, swimming, whatever. I’ll see y’all manana.
