It's weird how sometimes the bar feels heavier than it should for a lift, I've had that happen a few times myself. I'd say "whatever" since this is a "medium" week for you and your lifts are still killer. Keep pushing it, and have a good weekend!

Thank you, appreciate you dropping by. Was beginning to think nobody reads a lot of the journals on here, my previous page had hardly any comments on it lol. Maybe I need to add in some pics of fast cars and naked women ?!

Busy day but squeezed in a quick 30min squat session a bit over an hour ago. Felt good today, worked up to a double with 220 and that felt comfortable. Nutrition has been also been pretty good and I'm slowly upping the calories; blueberry pancake stack before the gym and a deluxe vegan burger straight after. Now I'm about to have a big bowl of oats, homemade muesli + fruit.

All on track, coffee gets dropped out of the diet tomorrow so start of the week could be a bit rough haha.

I was actually going to ask for some of your recipes. Your meals look so yummy. And sorry to hear coffee is getting nixed....

I may not always reply to your entries, but I always read them...Can't say I'll be a regular subscriber if naked women become a main part of them. Naked men on the other hand...haha

Why are you eliminating coffee?

Ditto, I follow your log but don't always have much to say. You've got a great work ethic and consistency, and it shows in your results. Your program is also similar to what I'm doing, so it's helpful to check out for comparison.

I want to reset my tolerance to it, I also want my body to be running as cleanly and optimally as possible right now (I cut alcohol at the start of this month). I want to feel the kick I get from a couple of strong coffees on the morning of the meet :D

So I've been carbing up in preparation for tonights big session with James and some of the big units at Eastide gym. Yesterday looked like...

1) Went out for breakfast in the morning and had a fresh bagel, scrambled egg plus a bowl of oats & fruit

2) Mid-morning I had a protein shake (added in some Glutamine & creatine)

3) Lunch was a large salad with 3 x pieces of GF bread

4) Mid afternoon I cooked up 300g spinach & ricotta tortellini with a homemade black lentil curry to go with it

5) Trained early evening but nothing too heavy, dinner when I got from the gym was pizza with friends. I had a large vegan pizza (refried beans, avocado & jalapeno's) :wink:

Today I'll be keeping the carbs & protein reasonably high, tonight I'm hoping to try for a 400 DL which will be my first time since February. We're also hitting bench so I'll be looking for at least a solid 220. Keen to better my meet PB of 232 this time around, I think I can. I'm going to try and get some good video from the session, will post up over the next day or so. Laters MF.

Hey MF. Just checking in here to let you know I always read your blog here and love to see the updates on how hard you've been training. Thanks for the inspiration. Keep up the great work! BTW - Do you plan to transition to 100% vegan in the future?
