Fasted for almost 17 hours. Then went and did a bi/tri workout. My arms were still pretty sore from thr pulldowns/chin ups/deadlifts yesterday. Concentrated on form more than ever today. Every rep was nice and slow on the contraction and back down. Ran to the gym. 13 mins of HIIT after. Walked home.

Post workout meal:

16 oz unsweetened almond milk
2 scoops Raw Mixed Protein
Stevia

Juiced some stuff:
2 celery sticks
Bunches of baby spinach
2 large oranges
3 7" carrots

Yummy stuff:
12 dates
28 almonds

Only fasted for about 13.4-14 hours. Had an organic raw food protein bar about 40 minutes before my workout today. I felt really off today. Bloated, fat, sluggish, kind of weak. I dont get it because we actually got a good amount of sleep on shift last night.

10 minute mile warm up.

BB Squats:
135x15, 225x12, 335x5, 355x5, 375x5, 225x20

BB Bent Over Rows:
135x6, 185x4, 185x4, 185x 4, 185x5 Kind of had a hard time with these today. The barbell i grabbed was curved and kept wanting to rotate in my hands.

DB Flat Bench:
40sx15, 55sx9, 70sx2 (horrible reps), 60sx7, 60sx6 My incline bench is much stronger than my flat bench. I dont get it, but the numbers dont lie. I did 3 sets of 70sx5 on incline last workout, and this is two workouts in a row with utter failure with 70s on flat bench.

DB Shrugs:
55sx15, 65sx12, 75sx10, 85sx8, 100sx6

Incline DB Flys:
25sx12, 40sx8, 50sx5, 55sx5, 55sx5, 35sx8

HIIT afterwards of about 20 minutes.

Nutrition post workout:
180 kcal of dried apples
Acai + Protein Drink (250 kcal)
1 block of raw Tofu (200 kcal)
1 Organic Raw Food Protein Bar (330 kcal)
3 tbsp of Pacific Heights mixed Almonds/Cherries/Dark Chocolate (170 kcal)

This workout took everything out of me. That last set of incline flys made me dig deep. I ate my post workout meal and passed out for a 3 hour nap. Just woke up and my chest is already yelling at me. I didnt do any cardio at all today besides a 5 min warm up run.

Some good work going on in here Matt, nice stuff.

How do you get your bodyfat checked? Calipers I'm assuming? 15% at over 200lb is really good, keep it up.

I'm a little the same, haha! The sugars concern me a little so personally restrict my intake a little and don't go crazy on the stuff; I try and get most of my fruits either in a fresh or frozen form.

Felt super motivated after reading Mini Forklifts journal yesterday.

Ran 1 mile to the gym in 5:30 seconds, which is by far my fastest ever. I owe some thanks to the vega sport preworkout i had just before this as well. I hadnt felt burnt lungs in quite a while. It was a good/horrible feeling. I really pushed myself on my bi/tri workout today as well.

1 mile (5:30)

Bi/tri

Bi/tri burnout drop sets

5 min treadmill run

1000 jump ropes

1 mile run/walk home (i was exhausted)

I took some pics at the gym but the lighting is terrible. It is really difficult taking pictures of yourself, but i would feel too awkward asking someone else to take them.
