Journal

Wrote and article about maximizing the metabolism earlier.  The topic is quite large, so I figured I would break it down into multiple parts in order to say everything I wanted to say.  Its a very interesting topic though.

Start of the new split today and I really enjoyed the first day.  It was weird focusing on only two exercises, but the multiple reps and sets definitely made it a hard workout.  DB Bench felt heavy to me and I’m not sure why.  Going increase carbs and calories a little bit to see if I can get back to the 90lb DB.

Nutritionally I purposely added in more carbs today and dropped fats a little toward the lower range.  I really want to increase the weights I lift and I feel carbs will help boost strength a little more.  I also found my new favorite starch source: baked sweet potato.  Mix it with splenda, cinnamon and sugar free syrup and dear God its like eating cake with each meal.
