For today I am so sore. Did only a 3 mile run. Afraid to lift since my upper back hurts so badly today. Need to rest it. Got my t-shirts from Robert today with some nice vega goodies.

Food today so far is protein powder, cantaloupe, apples. Going to eat one of these vega bars and then probably more prot powder and lots of veggies tonight. I am traveling today so probably mostly protein powder for the next few days and veggies since I can easily travel with the powder and just mix it with water.

Been traveling but still got training in anyway. Yesterday was chest and shoulders. Did chest press 5x12, super set for incline press and incline flys 5x12, monster set of side raises, front raises, upright rows, military press 5x12 each, pushups 3x15, flexibility work, routine presses, worked on splits, 30 minute run. today was only a three mile run. Back is a bit better but not great. Played golf yesterday and friday and got a massage to help losen up the upper back. Also started working with a sport psychologist to help improve my "game" this year before the season starts.

leg day/abs and high intensity cardio. Recently changed my cardio to only 15 mins a day but high end 85% HR. Really helps to keep my HR up throughout my weight training. Burning alot more cals in a shorter period of time. Weight training is more high intensity with minimal breaks.

15 min. 15% incline tread at 4.0

squats 3x15

plie squats 3x15

SB ham curls

jump squats

plank twisters


SB running mans

cresent lunges

all 3x15

sprinter sit-ups


Ate a bit too much yesterday. Going to try and cut it back today.

Today was an hour of routine work and 30 mins of hard cardio (spin and stair stepper). Lots of stretching. Burned 850cals but routine practice was poor. Might need to up that practice to improve for upcoming contest. I have decided to stop following any type of "diet plan" because it never works. I need food to get through these training sessions. I do not like it when I am to weak to train. More food seems to result in more training. Also bringing food to the gym now so I can go longer.

Kicked up that food today. Feeling very full. Ended up eating lots of protein powder (10 scoops throughout the day) gemma, rice, hemp. lots of raw carrots, 2 large bowls of lettuce, spinach, broccoli, mushrooms with T. of flax oil and balsamic. Cauliflower dish with T. olive oil (raw recipe). 2 bananas, apple, some blueberries, pepper, cherry tomatoes. Had 1c oatmeal post workout. Want to get more starchy carbs in but I can't eat anymore. Tomorrow more st carbs and less powder. We will see how training goes tomorrow with a day of more food. Considering I burned 850 cals in my morning workout I suspect that the additional food will help. I will post tomorrow if I see any results in the gym.

Great am training. I would have gone longer but my training schedule only had me doing a 30 min. run and a chest and tri workout. Only took 70 mins. Had energy to go about another 20-30mins of hard training. Probably because I upped the food intake yesterday. Really made a difference.

3x8 tricep pushups

4x15 cable crossovers

3x12 tricep dips with feet on MB

3x15 plate tricep press

3x10 up down plank holds

3x15 pushups on upside down bosu ball


Food today was:

post workout 1c oatmeal, salad of lettuce, broccoli, spinach, flax oil, balsamic

mid morn apple, 2sc pp

mid afternoon apple 2sc prot powder

dinner lettuce, broccoli, spinach, 1/2 avocado, balsamic, 1T flax oil salad

1 red pepper

Tomorrow is cardio and legs. Will see how I feel tomorrow. Then I will decide if the food was enough to support the training.

Woke up this am with a severe headache and starving. Felt like a drop in blood sugar. I am guessing it was not enough food for me yesterday or maybe not enough carbs. Training was very tough. I had no energy. Had extra coffee to get through.

leg/abs day:

3x15 squats

3x15 jump squats

3x15 plank twisters

3x15 v-ins on bench

3x15 plie squats

Food was pretty much the same today as yesterday but I am going to add some additional asparagus and mushrooms tonight and one more pepper. I am hoping I feel better tomorrow for routine training.
