Day 57 of 84
Metabolic Surge: Round 1, Phase 3, Day 1
Thanks to all the Shredders who left me with good remarks yesterday. Your continued support of my quest has been amazing!
Nutrition today is based on a low-fat meals, but with some modifications to accomodate protein loading via protein shakes approximately every 2 hours. At the same time, I also loaded on creatine and glutamine. With all those shakes, getting my water intake right was a piece of cake!
Training was Muscle Rounds for the lower body, consisting of squats, stiff-legged deadlifts, and calf raises. With squats, after having lowered the weight to concentrate on proper form during previous muscle rounds sessions, I added more weight this time compared to last. I completed the squats without any lower-back pain! I even added a bit more weight during the last set. Needless to say, I was feeling good!
This continued with stiff legged deadlifts, where I also increased the weights (and completed it feeling slightly woozy, which is just right) and calf raises. So I was feeling good. The strength and recovery phase must have done a good job with my strength. I then finished by starting Level 3 of Flatten Your Abs training.
My only blemish on my nutrition plan was a slight delay for my last meal, as I was caught in the rain on the way home and had to wait in a long line for public transport.
Keep focused on your goals!
