training 11.25.2011

Gorgeous day today.

Started with creatine and MGPM.  Did some band hurricanes and bar work to warm up.

Used elbow sleeves and 18" wrist wraps.

Bench: worked up to my work sets, closing with 220kg; pushed out 10 reps and had some left.  Not sure why, but the diet is making a big difference in my lifting.  More about that later.

Incline bench and elbow out triceps extensions, 5x20    These were brutal by the end.

Still knee-deep in carb backloading and loving it.  In fact, it's had a significant effect on my training.  I know Kiefer wrote about the Hulk Effect or some such nonsense, and I make no claims of feeling green or super-heroic.  But I do feel as if I've had a huge caffeine boost when I've had none.  My training session intensity has risen when I didn't think it could, and I can only attribute it to the backloading.  I'm still figuring a lot of it out on my own until he publishes his book (and I find out I'm doing it all wrong), but it's not particularly complicated.  And while I have an emotional struggle with no breakfast, it's been easy to adapt to.  I haven't seen any huge body comp changes in all of a week, but there are noticeable differences elsewhere.  And I think I am losing some fat.  What I'm sure of is that I feel huge, tighter in my skin, and my weight is staying very stable even though I'm having carb orgies every night.  And I don't eat any differently on training days and non -- always the same.  My cooking has gotten more inventive (don't want Oreos all the time), and Thanksgiving yesterday was an absolute blast after 5:00.

Anyway, I encourage you to try it, any of you interested in body comp change that involves losing some fat.  Let me know if you need info sources.

Hope you have a great weekend.
