Week 2 of Westside for skinny bastards. Progress has been good, except for bench press. Not sure what is going on with that but everything else went up. I also replaced bench jumps with 3 sets of max reps on squats. I felt kind of strange busting out the box jumps to be honest haha. I felt like the squats would carry over better to other lifts. I also replaced dumbbell swings with dumbbell hip extensions. Really like DB hip extensions for some reasons. I feel like there a really good exercise for the lower body and abs and carry over well to other exercises.
Hit roughly 2400 calories a day. Fat was very high and carbs were kept pretty low except for Wednesday when I did a higher carb day. I honestly felt like I didn’t need it and noticed I was a little bit more sluggish the next day, so I may considered taking it out and just doing one higher carb day on Saturday. I noticed my protein has been way elevated here recently because of the increased fat in my diet. Mainly eggs and cheese bumping up the extra protein. Been hitting over 200 grams a day. I really dont want this much in my diet, but that’s what I’ve been hitting naturally. Also been consuming more coffee here recently, almost craving it to be honest. To me that sounds like a bad thing, but maybe not. My energy has been very good though. Except for the day after the higher carb day, I felt really good all week.
