  • A Prep of Balance and Work

    Hey!

    Thought I would start a new journal instead of the 2 yr old one I had going. For those who don't know me, I guess you can look at the 2 yr old journal..lol.

    Hitting the stage in May 2015 and June 2015. I got up to 230, it was sloppy. I started leaning up slowly in Feb, and I am currently 197. I just took a week off due to some back issues. A 4 month old daughter, 2 careers, hobbies and being a good husband keep me busy. I do things a little differently and follow a flexible dieting strategy. My first prep (if you want to call it that) with a child, I am looking forward to it.

    To be peeled, I will need to be in the 160's..crazy right?! The plan is to get to 185, then reverse diet some, then start my prep. It will be nice starting a prep leaner.

    My current nutrition is 45f/150c/225p. I do 1 refeed a week, 25f/190c/150p then a free meal. Or I can do a much higher carb intake, but no free meal.

    Cardio is currently- 2 HIIT sessions per week, 12 intervals, 30sec all out, 90 sec 1/2 speed. 2 35 min sessions @ 65% heart rate and 2 15 min sessions post workout. So not a ton of cardio.

    I will also hit up a few meets or 2 in 2015. My current training plan has my goals set at 455sq, 315 pause bp, 505 dead.

    Thanks for looking.

    Squats tomorrow.

          Yeah, it sounds weird saying it. But that is what is winning these natty shows here. Whatever weight it takes for me to be as lean as I can.

          Squats
          300x5x5

          Olympic Pause Squats
          225x6x2

          DB SLDL
          90x10x4

          15 min cardio.

          Low back felt great, no real issues. After no training last week b/c of my back, it was reassuring to be able to squat today. The pause squats felt crazy light after the 5 prior sets.

          Work around the house, and did some grilling.
