Good workout today. Heading out to see the family and eat a bunch of things I know I shouldn’t. Happy Holidays everyone!

2 sets of sprints on the rower, 200m each. I did both in under 35 seconds, and felt like I was going to pass out. I think I need to incorporate rowing a bit more in my energy systems workouts. I’m also going to re work a few things in my diet and training. First I am going to start taking in a high amount of BCAA’s during my workout, as well as consuming a green drink post workout. I am also toying with the idea of a high dose of omega 3 fatty acids and L-carnitine as well. I am also considering a 7-day detox some time in January.

Training,

I am going to shoot for 3 days of lifting with 3 conditioning workouts per 7 day week. I may have to break the weightlifting up into multiple sessions, as that may be the only way to fit it all in. I think this will work well with my lower body, I’m not so sure about the upper. Any thoughts are appreciated, thanks to all for stopping by.

So you have to stop your own training when people come to your facility in order to provide personal training? That must be inconvenient.

I got a great book for Christmas that talks about vitamins, minerals, supplements, etc. in the context of certain health issues. I took L-carnitine for awhile, but can’t remember why I initially started. I’m trying to be more knowledgeable about all this stuff.

Slightly inconvenient, but its part of the job. I’m thinking of using the L-carnitine for 2 reasons. 1, it is supposed to be helpful with fatty acid oxidation. 2 it is supposed to help elevate testosterone levels in men.

Okay. Now I’m REALLY curious why I was taking it. And who suggested it.

Welcome, I will go ahead and say it 5/3/1 and good luck.

Snap women have Testosterone levels themself, actually good for the libido in 40 year old women age group. So you may need that in 10 years. :slight_smile:

DJHT, great answer. I tried 5/3/1 before, I wasn’t totally impressed. who knows maybe I will give it another shot this go around.

12/28

No training today way to many college athletes back. I need to get them on a set schedule before I really get going with this.
