So this is me…
On a Saturday.

Working out at my own home and the new gym which equates to a massive clear out of old equipment and replacing it with some basic stuff. Gym boss timer is my essential.

Word hard and don’t give up!

Day 33

Yes! I woke up this AM and did a short 10-15min workout. Was just bodyweight stuff and was waiting for my shower to warm up. Ok, I was sore from last night and it didn’t set in until breakfast!
So this AM I started with my diet tweaking.
Post workout:
Steel cut oats (about 1 cup cooked)
3 tbsp of fat free yogurt
Almond milk + whey
1 egg white

Too full. Don’t know how guys can eat 6 egg whites in the AM and have 1 big bowl of oats and have like a shake plus some other what nots! Omg. Stuffed!

On to snack, 1 can tuna (onion tomato) and cottage cheese. All added up to about 1 full cup. Am gonna be full for a while!!!

Workout time!!! Took X-cite before workout and a post workout shake
Did upper body :
DB one arm rows-16kg
Reverse lunge curls -6kg
Underhand Lat pull downs – 80lbs
Pull ups – 5 x 3
Ground to squat jump ups – 20 nos
Bicep curls – 15kg

Abs!!!! Weighted this time.
As time goes by, I do want to add weights to my ab workouts. Long ago y bodybuilder friend told me its what makes a difference in building those abs. And I truly believe it. They popped out many years ago. Not just the typical flat ones.

After my post workout I had a MRP shake as I was rushing to send a friend off. But came home and got my dinner and veg all sorted out. Actually for the next few days!

Kudos for those who plan ahead…including me.

Today my workout was awesome. MMA style training using ropes, ropes and ropes! Skipped 4 times in between those. Also did sledge hammers on tyre and 20kg sandbag slams!

So today is day 9. I am sore. My triceps are screaming from yesterday.

Today I have training with bogey! Supposed to do my HIIT but I’m skipping it as my PT sessions are pretty intensive and I don’t want to over work myself. I will also be taking my fat percentage. Hopefully it didn’t go up! I’m hoping maybe 1% would have came off by now. It’s always harder to lose fat ESP when you’re in the 18-20% range. It’s like a plateau thinggie. The last time I was at 14%, I swear, I had a hard time! And I was only 24 back then. Now I am 28. And my back is restricting the exercises and the work load i can do.

Anyhow, woke up at 10am again!

AM : muesli with protein shake

Snack : trail mix and banana

Lunch : pancakes with yogurt and maple syrup! Love it!!!

Workout time!!!

Did alot of legs and presses!
Also did roman ring flips and pistol squats! Did a bit of club bell work too…

Post workout : chicken and mix veg stir fry. Skipped the protein shake.

Late night snack : protein shake with milk

Day 4

So, I think I need to get a tan. It’s been raining everyday and I’m turning into a vampire soon with all the dark clouds and weird weather.

So day 4. Sore like hell in my butt due to the tyre flips I did 2 days ago. But it ain’t bad at all. Considering my 9 month lay off from heavy stuff.

So today is kinda like the ‘free day’, meaning no weights.

I’m going to do a circuit workout and I’m going to be a little insane on this…

But let’s talk about my food.

AM : warm oatmeal + skim milk with cinnamon and whey isolate shake (no carbs)

Speaking of whey, I know many people want the best tasting whey, but the last thing I want going INTO my already ‘unhealthy’ body is artificial sweeteners. I’ve nothing against them and I know alot of reputable brands are selling well bcos of their funky flavors and etc, but sorry… I only stick to one brand and that is Prograde or Athlean. I think health is important…in the LONG run. Those artificial crap is going to take a toll on our bodies sooner or later…and trust me, it’s better to go natural.

AM HIIT sprints run/walk 100m x10 rounds

->;;>;; omega greens + amino chews

Snack : 3 palm sized pumpkin pancakes (pumpkin again) LOL!

Lunch : sardines❤, quinoa, HOT salsa and salad greens

Snack : my trail mix (I created one using almonds, walnuts, organic dried apple chips, cranberries. Would love Brazil nuts but they were sold out!)

Workout >;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;>;;;
So here I am… Killing myself with this circuit. I would rate myself as above average though and I want to perform it at 80-90% intensity by planning and choosing the right routine.

And after 1 hour….

OFFICIALLY DEAD

Dinner : protein shake + beef patty + stir fried veg

Last meal : 3 pumpkin pancakes!!! 😉
