Woke up this morning and finished another lesson in the personal training manual, then I wrote an article on overtraining. I really enjoy writing my perspective on issues that a lot of people really don’t understand. Overtraining isn’t really a great issue that some make it out to be as I pointed it out in my article. Just look at Michael Phelps for proof of that.
The workout went good today and I just stuck with the trap-bar deadlift today instead of doing squats with it. Been doing 6 sets on the first main exercise here recently and usually by the end of that I’m smoked. I like putting most of my effort into the big compound movements as those are what make the most impact. Did some isolation lunges and held for 10 seconds on the last set and thought my legs were going to fall off when I was done. Good feeling though. Then I basically destroyed my biceps that basically grew to twice their normal size by the end of the workout. Making Gains.
Nutrition went good today. Was pretty low in calories up to the workout, but made up for it with a high calorie post workout meal. Doing chicken kabobs tonight on the grill, which if cooked with right taste incredible.
May try to do another article on the benefits of coconut either tonight or tomorrow. Probably tomorrow :). Coconut literally defines superfood and the list of benefits it has would blow your mind. Funny thing about coconut, is healthy experts used to say it was unhealthy due to the saturated fat. (Geniuses right there)
