21st-Tues-Feb Cycle 2 week 3 (5/3/1)
Going to mini blog during the day after being inspired by Vegansludge:)
Sat at work waiting to start with a coffee. Had some converge & cannibal corpse blasting on the bus ride in, didn't improve my mood much.
Woke up at 5:00 & my cold was back with a vengeance. Also fully expected my hamstrings to be tight after the treadmill yesterday, warmed up & stretched but they were throbbing come bed time....alas they were not though
Work today, 7:00-19:00. Training right after then home, hopefully by 20:30 & start prepping food again for Wednesday, absolutely sucks balls.....
If anyone is in any doubt I have woken up in a foul mood. Right now I have no energy & just want to crawl back into my pit. Must write to my cns to apologise.
Wish my metabolism would hurry up, this colds killing my appetite. Managed to shovel down a wholemeal roll with greens, local organic cheese & local bought mango chutney with a shake, tidy.
Finished watching the incredible hulk on my iPhone & power nap while listening to cattle decapitation on break. Woke up & ate. Feel chipper now, lifting isn't far away. Boring, Uneventful day which usually means nothing's fucked up (yet) at work.
Got that weird, pre workout feeling of "please let the rack be free" in my gut. Already hit 3000/just over calories for today & I still have my post shake/meal & bed time shake to have yet
just about Take some bcaa.
Warm up was quick, couldn't spend ages doing foam rolls
Dead lifts: 87.5kg 100kg 112.5kg+5
Front squats (programmed assistance 3x5) 47.5kg 55kg 60kg
Reverse hypers 3x10
Ab circuit: hanging leg raises, leg raises, side bends, v-ups
Post shake: maize starch, x2 protein, bcaa, glutamine & creatine.
Post meal: mushroom stir fry, quorn pieces & brown rice.
Rack area was free thank god. Pretty good session, weight still isn't very challenging. Smashed through.
If anyone's wondering why my deads are not mega heavy it's because I set my sciatica off while moving home 6 months ago. I then ran 12 weeks without squatting or dead lifting at all.
Bit of rehab work & since I have very slowly started them & upping weight, almost from scratch. That's why 5/3/1 is so great for me. Good mornings, ghr & proper form seem to be correcting my issue. Along with foam rolls.
22.27 & just climbed into bed, alarm set for 5:00:(((
