    My goals:

    Get stronger. Gain some lean body mass. Have more energy.


    I plan to achieve these by:

    Following the primal blueprint and concentrating on aspects of lifting heavy weights occasionally, eating primal and getting lots of rest.

    S: boiled egg, almonds

    8/5


    B: sax breakfast bowl

    S: 2 boiled eggs

    L: heirloom tomato gazpacho (i have the recipe if anyone wants it)

    S: boiled egg, cashews

    D: bratwurst, grilled onions, grilled summer squash, grilled heirloom tomato


    WOD:

    shoulder press 5,5

    115, 120(PR)


    This was a 5x5 workout, but I am somewhat following the CrossFit Strength Bias prescription so when you get a new PR, you stop there. 5 reps of shoulder press at 120 is my new PR.


    Getting to bed here in the next 15 minutes, which will put me before 10pm.

    8/6


    B: sax breakfast bowl

    L: bratwurst, grilled onions, grilled summer squash, grilled heirloom tomato (leftovers)

    S: boiled egg, apple, almonds

    D: hamburger (w/ bacon, cheese, grilled onion, avocado, heirloom tomato and roasted jalopeno), mixed green salad w/cucumber and heirloom tomato


    WOD:

    deadlift 5,5

    275, 295


    Again, this was a 5x5, but 295 is a PR for me by 10lbs, so I shut it down there.


    Finished with:

    15-12-9 reps of

    handstand push-up

    chest to bar pull-up


    7:15


    Full ROM head-to-floor HSPU and a new PR in deadlift. I am certainly feeling stronger!


    It's pretty late so I won't get to bed until about 15 or 20 after 10. Not too bad.
