Well we are at the back end of another week, Friday has zoomed round again and today i feel exhausted. Tonight is a night off lifting, i have had 13 straight days of lifting, this has not been an issue previously but throwing in morning cardio and the intensity levels with weights in an evening are making my powers of recovery subside, couple this with running on pretty much on protein there is no need my body is crying for a good rest, time to listen to it for a change.
This morning i did manage 12 sets of ab work 3 different execises and 45 minutes cardio, this classes as a day off!
Two weeks had now passed since my last check the progess pictures make all the toil worthwhile, now 6 weeks into what i call 80% disciplined dieting and the results are starting to show.
This picture was around february time but the dieting
commenced eight weeks ago
This image was from two weeks ago, six weeks in.
This was today 26/06 my conditioning is slowly improving but still a long road ahead.
Throughout this time my strength has varied i tend to have a carb up every Suday this normally consists of 2-3 carby meals adding 300-500g of carbs, this is great as a treat and glycogen replenishement, the feeling of the muscle absorbing the glycogen is quite amazing; the next 3 training sessions i lift heavier and focus on weaker/larger bodyparts to get the most from my training, as the week continues i focus more on intense minamal rest training to help tap into thos fat stores, training at intensity also has been proved to increase growth hormone secretion which really help get rid of those hard to move brown fat stores.
I hope that you all take something from this journey be it training routines to try or new supplements to use to help achieve that desired physique.
Catch you all next week for another gruelling week of training, keep tuned in, thanks JB
