Low Carb Oorah

Here’s my food log for today:

Low Carb Oorah

Oh, yeah…

I guess I pulled on Monday. I didn’t get any cardio done and worked up to 455 x 1. My diet and training were totally jacked up; I remember faltering when I went to pull a warmup with 225. That is not a good sign. I just need to stay the course, keep to the plan and be confident training will go better next week.

Also, I did arms on Saturday and military press (165 x 3 x 5), shoulders, SSB hise shrugs and arms on Tuesday. These included weighted dips with bw + 10 x 3 x 15 and ez curl 95 x 3 x 10.

I ran on Tuesday (1.5 miles in 12ish minutes) and ran today. I did 10 minutes of intervals, decided my shins/feet/ankles were getting beat up so I stopped. I need to adjust my frequency or something because I think I’m trying to run too often for my current level of fitness. Or something, I don’t know. Hopefully new shoes will really help the situation.

Oh, yeah…

Semi-disastrous Bench Pressing and Diet Update

Squatting, Cardio and Diet Update

free squat: worked up to 265×1 but it looked and felt terrible so I sucked it up and dropped down to 315×5,5,7

GHR: bw x 5, 10, 2 x 15

random pullups

one leg hip thrusts and supine bridges: bw x 15

pistol to tall box + two bumpers: bw x 30 left then right. I switched to this setup so next week I can take an inch off and I’ll work my way down to the box.

The diet was good, just chugging along according to plan. Keep in mind these logs don’t reflect ~100-120 grams of periworkout carbs around weight training.

High carb day:

Today I did 20 minutes of mild cardio on the elliptical, and I’m glad because I was super sore from yesterday and my carb intake was severely reduced.

Low carb day:

Knock on wood, I’ve been weight stable and getting leaner so I think this is working.

I made Kristen do Tabata front squats with me and she took it like a trooper.

I alternated front squats with 65 pounds and trap bar pulls with 135. It felt bad but not nearly as bad as 8 consecutive rounds of front squat. I got mad glute pump.

Today is a medium carb day. Here’s the diet pending any unforeseen changes:EDIT: I ate a piece of sprouted Ezekiel bread too, FYI.
