Today was a tough... I know I say that every day, but it really was.
I was reading through Primal Blueprint today and he mentioned the idea of of a higher consumption of Carbs for fat loss than I am normally used to. I have always taken Robb Wolf's advice of less than 40g/day if you want to lean out, but I find that when I train with the volume I have been doing I get ultra sore. My body aches. The P.B. suggests 100-150g/day for Fat loss.
It might be difficult to get that full paleo, but I have been testing out my sensitivities with a few cleaner grains to see if they might be more tolerable. Lately I have been consuming anywhere between 80-100g of carbs daily. I am gonna try and adjust my carb intake next week to see how it feels.
Coffee with Heavy Cream
Granola with Almond Milk
24oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
32oz Green Juice from Whole Foods
Pho with Beef and Veggies
A: 8 Sets:
Min 1: 3 Bench Press
Min 2: 8 Ball Slams
Min 3: 20 Double Unders
B: 7 Rounds for time:
10 Kettlebell Snatches
A: Used 80kg for Bench/30lbs Slam Ball. I know, I suck at Bench but it is definitely something I want to work on as I progress along with this training. This felt okay. I was able to get 4/8 sets of DU unbroken. None of them where difficult but at the time in my training, it is just about being consistent and getting back in the flow with things.
B: 15:47. Used 24kg Kettlebell. The Bench and Double Unders must have added up. 2 Rounds in and I was feeling empty. My shoulders were just smoked. When my shoulders get smoked, It makes me feel like I want to puke. It slowed me down big time. The group Cheered me on and since Jb accidentally did 6 rounds, I technically didn't come in last!
Cheers to my shoulders wanting to throw up!
