Feel pretty good so far today. Was a bit tired when i got up but nothing that some strong perked coffee couldn’t fix.
Did weights at 845 am with Jim this morning. Workout consisted of
-Jumping chin ups. 5 sets (3 sets with 40lb weighted vest). 5 reps per set. fast up, 5 second negative.
-Horizontal Pull Ups 3 sets of 5 reps with weighted vest, 2 sets just bodyweight. Same temp 5-0-X
-Finished with a cable pull/row circuit with hammer curls. 3 exercises in a row. 12 reps each, no rest, 3 sets.
My goal with weights is to just maintain some strength and get the extra workouts in. Soon will be making the weight workouts a bit faster paced as i need to drop weight and improve cardio.
9-1030 Kickboxing class. Worked a lot on kicking, bag work, inside fighting. Was a great class.
10-11 30 Min eleptical. Need to burn some extra calories and get the metabolism going. Not doing it for cardio, doing it more just to burn calories.
Nutrition & Supplements :
Overall was another good day of clean eating. Kept the carbs pretty low. Good protein, lots of salads and protein shakes. I can go into more detail on my diet plans but saving that for later in case i find it hard to drop weight then ill start changing stuff around.
Overall Day :
I got a pic taken this AM. Pics don’t lie. If you ever want to see “If” your in shape, take a pic and have a good look at it!
This pic has taught me that i need 10lbs of fat off my waist ASAP. I am 190 and need to get in fat loss mode big time now.
With this blog I plan on adding some video clips of training. Weights, MMA, Drills, just to show what is involved. It is a lot different than what I am used to with bodybuilding & powerlifting training.
Just getting ready to hit the sack now. 1230 and hoping to get some sleep. I find it a lot harder to sleep now that I am training a lot. You would think it would be the opposite effect.
What I learned today? : That i need to get lean…fast..like yesterday fast…
