02-03-09 Tuesday Week 1

Deadlifts during "Mr. Joshua" ... form is not bad except for my head not being in a neutral position... gaze should be on the floor a few feet in front of me. =o/

I can really tell the difference when my diet is on. I don't finish meals and want more food and I don't get drowsy between meals. I'm feeling good today - much better than yesterday. Breakfast was a very small bison patty (I cooked a bunch of them last night so they are easy to grab when I'm hungry and need a fast protein) and my usual coffee. I've switched from ultra-pasteurized cream to non-homogenized - it's not as processed and I love it. How awesome it is to have the Dekalb Farmer's Market right in our neighborhood. Ground bison is around $5 a pound.

Training log:
10 AM
Deadlift 3x3 & 1x20
225 x 3
240 x 3
245 x 3 (PR)
185 x 20 (PR)

Tabatas later today...
(what's tabata?)
16 rounds of bodyweight deadlifts (135#) alternating with 20" box jumps:
Deads : 11-10-8-8-6-3-2-3 = 51 (effing OW!)
Jumps: 15-11-11-12-12-12-14-14 = 103
16 rounds of pullups alternating with pushups:
Pullups: 10-10-6-6-6-6-7-9 = 60
Pushups: 12-10-8-8-6-8-7-7 = 66

Then... I walked 400 Meters with 65# locked out overhead as fast as I could. I did not time this.

Tomorrow is rest day, thankfully! I gotta tell ya, my back is pretty pissed at me right now... I'm still on track diet-wise and feeling good about it.

Impressive! I know what you mean about diet. My diet has been better the last couple of days, and I felt good in the gym tonight.
