Yeah, I’m not going to sweat one anomalous day, as long as it stays an outlier and doesn’t become a trend. Of course, it’ll be tough tracking weight this week since my eating and sleeping schedule will be all messed up with night shift.
2/4/18 5/3/1 full body giant sets cycle 1 day 7 squat primary/press secondary - Weight 196.5#
Warmup: barbell complex x3 with chin-ups 1/1/1
Giant set 1:
Accessory giant set:
1 arm DB press:
Conditioning: 20 minutes elliptical, aerobic program at lvl 6, 215 calories burned, and max heart rate of 170 during the high speed parts of the program. More calories, worse heart rate this time, but today was supposed to be a rest day and I’m feeling a little sleep-deprived right now as well.
I’m steadily discovering old strength, still plenty of room to go up in squats, just going to be patient and keep following the program and remembering what my goals are right now. I’ll have plenty of time to build strength after June 1st.
Food for today -
Breakfast: Shake = 1 cup whole milk, 1 large egg, 1 scoop quick oats, 1 scoop protein powder. 1 small bowl of mixed fruit.
Snack: Small handful of mixed nuts before going to move a bunch of furniture.
Evening meal at work: Large salad = baby spinach, cucumber, carrot, orange bell pepper, broccoli, radish, mushroom, olive oil and vinegar. 1 can of tuna on water. 12 oz glass of whole milk.
Snack: Mandarin orange before training.
Post-workout “meal”: 1 can of low sodium kippered herring. 1 banana. 1 12 oz glass of whole milk.
I only had one real meal today, and that was what’s usually my lunch at work, so I’m low on protein for the day. I may have to do a protein shake prior to going to bed when at get home at 3:30 in the morning.
Edit: had a scoop (so 30g) of protein with my creatine when I got home, so got my daily protein up where it needed to be. Vanilla protein powder + strawberry creatine powder + water /= strawberry quick, but it wasn’t terrible either, I may start doing every day with my creatine.
Today was supposed to be a day off, but I had enough dead time at work to get the workout in, so I took it. Tomorrow night will be crazy at work, so there’s no way I would have been able to train then, so it made sense to shift things around. My body is probably going to want to crash hard in an hour or two. We’ll see if I have time to train Wednesday or Thursday.
