AndiMorris Posted July 8, 2016 Share Posted July 8, 2016 Hi all,I thought it was about time to start another journal. My last one on here was mainly Crossfit based, and whilst I still do the odd conditioning "WOD" I've been primarily following the Wendler 531 programme for the last 6 months with good gains. As I'm 6 months in I need a bit of a switcharound, so I'm going for the Wendler "Beach body challenge" workout for the next 12 weeks. Don't be put off by the name, I'm pretty sure that's just the typical Jim Wendler wit coming through. Here's a link to the programme:https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/531-beach-body-challenge Today's food: Breakfast shake:2 * bananas30g peanut butter30g protein5g creatine5g l glutamine Breakfast:Typically I forgot to bring my lunch box to work today, so I'm struggling to find vegan options in the shops we have on site. I had to settle for a Trek bar and a flapjack. Post workout:250ml orange juice30g protein5g creatine5g l glutamine Lunch:Not sure yet, I'll see what I can find Mid-afternoon:Green smoothie:1 banana80g frozen fruit30g protein5g creatine5g l glutamine4g chlorella4g spirulina Dinner:Vegan sausage casserole Workout:250m rowAgile 8 Squat:42.5kg x 552.5kg x 565 x 375 x 585 x 595 x 5 Hang clean:20 x 522.5 x 527.5 x 332.5 x 1032.5 x 10 Press:20 x 520 x 520 x 520 x 525 x 330 x 335 x 140 x 145 x 150 x FAILED Curl:50 reps at 15kg (5 sets of 10) The hang clean and curl weights are guessed for this first week. I'm sure I can go heavier and still hit the required reps. Press I think my max has been set just too high, but I'll stick with it for the first cycle and see how I get on.
