This was my first workout on my new Leangains split. I haven’t done Squats in awhile, but my strength was on par with where it was before I stopped. My leg endurance was down though and I got tired a lot faster. My max was 215 for 5 reps. For Shoulder Press (dumbbells) used the 55’s in each hand for a total of 5 reps. Finished with some accessory exercises.
Epic Post workout feast after lifting. On Leangains I basically eat all my carbs from after my workout until dinner. I got in about 300 grams yesterday. My meal directly after lifting was 3 packets of weight control oatmeal, 1 scoop of protein powder, 2% milk, blueberries, banana, sugar free pancake syrup and pretzel sticks. I think the total came in around 800 calories. For dinner, I had a ton of potatoes and special K cracker chips.
I read Matt Stone’s: 12 Paleo Myths yesterday, which was a very interesting read. Basically showed the negatives of long term carb restriction and how some people were greatly affected by taking them out of the diet, even on a relatively healthy diet.
Pretty awesome clouds yesterday:
