Wrote and entry on insulin sensitivity this morning, which is a very important topic. It can be the difference between feeling good and feeling like crap; or gaining muscle and gaining fat and its definitely something you want on your side.
Workout went good and changed the angle of the trap-bar deadlift to include more back and traps, rather than legs. Basically I bent over further so my back was more horizontal rather than vertical. Tried some T-bar rows, but nothing gets me better than DB Rows. I also want to start doing more weighted pullups. Pushed up the 60’s today, but only got 3 reps. Its hard getting DB’s up to your shoulders when the weight gets heavy.
Nutrition was plentiful today and I made sure it included plenty of calories after my low calorie day yesterday. Woke up to three whole eggs (multivitamins as I like to call them) and 2 slices of toast. Then had chicken, beans, oatmeal, fruit and almond milk to fill in most of my calories.
