Thanks. It's all about the food right. I was lifting all the time, but until I controlled my diet I looked like Crap. I have a cooking background so it's easy for me. I just got to find all the right food to use.

Good day for a pull up century.

Up at 7 with 9hrs of sleep under my belt. Weighed in at 182.6 today. I seem to float between 181-183 so im not worried. All my shorts fall off except the skinny cut 34's so im happy but 10 pairs less.

7am breakfast standard peanut butter and banana sandwich with black coffee and a soy shake.

10am standard oatmeal with blueberries, agave necter, flax, wheat germ and cinnamon. Then i added this pre workout drink i got as a sample.

Mix with 8oz of water? Yeah no way i got 16oz to make it palatable and ice cubes :-p

Toe still sore but not hurt. I think it was the bare footed dead lifts. May have to wear shoes. I try to do stuff bare footed if i can because it feels more natural.

Onto the pull up century. The goal is 100 in 1 hr. im gonna warm up on the bike for 15min then hit it.

Heres my pull up bar.

I got to do close grip because of a dislocated left shoulder and a broken elbow on the right.

Go!

I have a bench with a dip handles and preacher attachment. About 250lbs worth of plates. A set of adjustable dumbells and a set of 35's.

I have a set of golds faux trx straps. I use old duffle bags as a kettlebell. I just fill with 5-10lb weights. Lots of rubber bands things.

Outside i got the tires and now battle ropes. Lots of blocks and a wheel barrel. I also got a 400lb generator on wheels i can farmers walk.

Treadmill and exercise bike for cardio. Balance discs, big ball, jump rope, 20-10lb medicine balls.

I got it covered.

Oh and snack!

Thanks MF. Feel free to critique anything, diet or training. Lord knows I need the help.


7am no DOMS from yesterday's leg day, go figure so I'm I'm the treadmill before breakfast. I'm gonna try this out because a fello faux vegan friend of mine does it and has stripped away a lot of fat.

I did 30min and burnt 260 cals and had a soy protein shake and banana after.

10am meal. This was my 7-10 combined. I used to eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich at 7 upon waking then steel cut oats t 10. Today at 10 I'm having my heavy carb meal all at once.
2 slices of 7 grain bread 18carbs
2 tbs of peanut butter. 7 carbs
1/4c cooked steel cut oats 15 carbs

Total 40 carbs. That's not too much for one meal?

I must admit I feel great after pre breakfast cardio. No coffee yet either, but I did have muscle recovery tea from Yogi.
