    I use LeanGains fasting protocol. On lifting days I will up my carbs to around 100g's. On walking days carbs are <50g's.

    • Today I'll do a 40 min walk, then the 30 Day Shred. If I feel like it I'll do some bench presses tonight.

      • a few KMs on the bike (no flat this time! yay!) followed by 20 minutes flexing out in the sunshine. Did a few bicep curls with the free weights, and that was about it.

          • The worst part of my weekend was doubting if I am harming my progress... I was just not my usual self, not sure if it was a lack of sleep or being on the verge of over-training.

            Kettlebells on Saturday, had to take short breaks between supersets, and only did one set of TGUs. I will need to switch next week to 20 lbs on the overhead and windmills super-set, because right hand is bored. I will just drop the resps to 6, and start building up to 12. Left will just have to suck it up. Good progress on the 1-legged deadlifts, 3x10, this week go to 3x12, and it will be time to up to 30 lbs. I have never done anything with 30 lbs kettlebells, so kindda exciting! a bunch of light yardwork.

            Sunday: Madcow. SQT (max @118), BP (max @80), BBR (F @82). Supports: deltoids raises @15 lbs, Inverted Rows (6,8,8) and a couple of chins and pull-ups. Strolling in the sun a little with the family.

            The most insane thing is that I finally started feeling alive AFTER my lifting session. DOMS are subsiding, and this morning I jumped out of bed bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, totally thinking to do HIIT after work.

            So, to summ-up last week: 3 lifting sessions, and 3 HIITs (bike, swim and KB). Low on walking, absolutely disgraceful on stretching.

            This week is the first week without the pool. RATS! I would love to incorporate a climb one of these days, but they free belay time is on Sunday afternoon.... Anyway, let's see if I can manage to match last week, etc.

                  • Leida - What are your longterm goals with exercise? Obviously you can't keep up 3x HIIT + 3x heavy lifting forever.....Unless you can afford to eat like a beast and sleep like a baby! ;-)

                    Meant to do some quick sprints after class today, but I got horrible sleep. School is making me stressed ALREADY! :-( Maybe a bikeride to the store when I get home. I'm thinking of a crockpot curried beef........

                    • My long term goal is a visible deltoid when arms are in a relaxed state (i.e that cool bump around the shoulder) & balancing quad with a heavier hamstring, while not admitting more fat on my belly and thighs. Basically, I want to look less like a weed growing out of an old tree stump

                      Sorry about you getting damaged sleep! Sleep is a paramount! So many people think that they do themselves good by cutting sleep in order to fit in 30 min of excersise... not good.

                      • Wendler 5/3/1....Good day! Got 7 on my last set of 1 on OHP.

                        • Yesterday: HIIT bike: level 3, HR variable between 140 and 160, was winded on the last 3 or 4 intervals, so will stay on L3 for next HIIT and try to pedal my way to 160 HR.

                          Today. The morning started super-crappy, I woke up before 2 am, my mind racing about paperwork for next year's trip to the accursed home-country of mine. Sheesh, people born here just do not realize how lucky they are (like, you know, they do not recognize my 13 year-long marriage down there as legal?). Anyway, spend good 3.5 hours running chores from cooking chicken broth to troubleshooting the dialogue in an add-on to an old CRPG I am working on. Off to gym, and during the ride hunger (of course!) hit me. Darn, couldn't kick in 20 min earlier when i was dealing with 2 boiled chickens and hubby's breakfast? Anyway, protein bar. Grr. What a crappy, crappy way to start the day. Still better than a failed training session, I suppose.

                          Madcow: SQT (light @88 lbs); OHP: 3x5, 58 lbs; DL (max of 166 lbs); support: a couple of chins, pull-ups, 2x5 dips and 3x6 of frontal deltoid raises @17.5 lbs.

                          Planning to walk at lunch, stretch and do a Super-star Booty Hill walk after lunch.

                          • I killed my workout yesterday, although I didn't squat nearly as much as hoped (I don't have a proper rack and I'm tip-toeing around the issue very carefully to avoid injury.) I did 6 rounds of medicine ball slams, pull-ups, push-ups, planks/power sit-ups, back rows, back flys, and jump rope. I'm very sore this morning. Tonight I'm going to do some sprints.

                              • Leida, so... Your goals are mostly aesthetic? I think you really ought to slow it down and take your time, that sort of stuff will develop. :-) (Just FYI, doing every sort of push-up possible until failure helped to develop my delts.) I don't know how you can handle all that workload! You don't count calories too, do you? And I'm SURE you do not look like a weed growing out of a tree stump. We are our worst critics. ;-) Here ya on the sleep -- I came home and took a nap after a (short!) day of school, and then I was in BEAST MODE for training. I actually did SUPER good today with my squats and I was giddy as hell, running around the gym and doing handstands. I suppose fasted training would work if you're getting plenty of sleep without stress, but I just can't handle it most days. I feel much better if I've had at least 500 calories or so an hour or so before training. Did you say you abandoned that or no? Protein bars are good if they are LARA BARS! My roommate ate mine yesterday. PISSED! She owes me. ;-)

                                Man... And if anybody hasn't tried canned tuna in extra virgin olive oil, it is AWESOME!!! I just bought 10 cans of it since it's on sale -- 4 for 5 bucks, so, about 5 bucks a pound, not bad. :-)

                                Nick, how do you feel during and after your workouts? I feel like all those metabolic conditioning workouts made me want to cry during the middle of them. ;-)

                                80x3, 90x3, 100x10 back squat
                                55x10x5 back squat
                                7-6-5-4-3-2-1 neutral grip pull-ups
                                8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 inverted rows, bent knees
                                + bike bike bike bike

                                So... I just realized that your percentages are based on 90% of your RM, not 100%... Is this right? I met this guy at the gym (who was not a douchebag and/or hitting on me!) who was doing deadlifts in socks (never see that!) and to my surprise he did Wendler for 4 months with great success, especially on his DL and squat! Good inspiration!
