Will I feel sore?

#1 Postby offense74 » Sun Sep 02, 2007 12:22 pm

Ok, so I'm not very good at this Journal thing but I will try to update it every now and then.
The plan is to test the limits, have fun, lose fat and not lose too much muscle.
I will be working out alot and this week I've done the following:

Monday:
Street -1hr
Ballet -1,5hr
House -1hr

Tuesday:
Locking -1hr
Jazz -1,25 hr

Wednesday:
Street -1hr
Street -1hr

Thursday:
Jazz -1,25 hr
Ballet -1,5 hr
Jazz -1,5 hr

Friday:
Arms at the gym -1 hr
Street -1hr
House -1hr

Saturday:
Rest

Sunday:
Locking -1hr
Street -1hr

Total of 16hrs this week. I can feel some soreness in my lower back and some fatigue in my legs.
I will try to make it to the gym the days when I only have two classes and I might do something on saturday, or not.
To be able to keep up with this schedule I will have to eat really clean and well. I will follow a diet that is a mixture of the good things in The Thrive Diet and Eat to Live. I have the same problem as some other people on here; I gain weight very easy. I can (and have) gain 20lbs (10kg) over a weekend. During christmas I can actually gain muscles without even working out. As with Potter and his cycling, extra weight isn't really making all the dancing any easier.
I will try to cut out almost all grains and cooked starches (I might have some on the weekend). I will severely limit sodium and added sugars. I will limit oil to maybe once at the weekend. I don't know where I will end up caloriewise but I think I will have to average less than 2000kcal/day and also limit sodium.
We'll see how it goes.

So what are street, locking, and house? :)

16 hours is a lot! I really want to do more than I do now but I just haven't got it in me lately. :(

Locking, old school
Same, only newer
It started out with a guy named Campbell that couldn't do "the funky chicken" but instead "locked" his joints (he was supposed to do it smooth) and from there he did more and more moves out of the same concept. It's done to funk music and have alot of influences from funk.
Some house.
In house you basically "jamming" or "jacking" (as it is called) with your upper body while the choreography (if there is one) is for the the lower body. It borrows moves from basically every dance style there is and remakes them to fit the style, all while jacking. It's one of the funnest activities one can do.
Both locking and House are street dances from the beginning. When I say street, it usually meens Hip-hop (as in MTV style dancing).

No training yesterday (felt too sore in my back). Eating was good even though I ate a little too much nuts in the evening.

Training today:
Back at the gym: 45mins.
Hip-hop: 1hr
Another Hip-hop: 1hr

Eating:
Ate just fruit all day long (well except for the ginger and the tea, but I don't count those). Now I'm enjoying a smoothie (juiced carrots, beets, kohlrabi with greens, raspberries and strawberries). This is probably the best smootie I've done so far in my vita-mix.

Are you dancing by yourself? with a group? or at some class? Whats the arrangement for so many classes pretty much everyday?
Does burning food to raise water temperature equate to energy utilization by DIGESTING food (chewing, saliva, stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, liver etc. Intestines:nutrients absorbed into blood stream)? Definitely NOT! Do Calories really mean anything?

It's at a dance studio. Well, actually it's 6 studios at one place. I don't understand what you mean by arrangement?

Saturday:
Eating was overall good, mostly fruit. Had some falafel to my veggies at lunch and it might have been a little too much salt.
No training saturday.

Sunday:
Eating have been good all day. Had dinner at Andrum (where Liz and I went awhile ago) and stuffed myself with veggies and beans. Had a small soda (I thought it was juice :roll: ). Again a little too much salt and the soda was not healthy, but it tasted good :D
Training:
Locking
Hip-hop
