Another week in the books. No major plateau busting this week other than I’m crunching the most for abs I ever have before. I really do think working abs almost every day has really helped increase my lifts. Still doing very little isolation and sticking to the Push / Pull / Abs everyday setup
Sarah and I are going to a party tonight with some of my co-workers. Our company has a big release set for Monday, so we figured we would party before the extra stress starts from work. Another Pro Tip: Keep dietary fat low on the days you drink. This greatly reduces the risk of storing fat.
Other than that I’ve been watching the original Berserk show on DVD, that I borrowed from my good friend Cameron. It’s been awesome so far. Very graphic show, but it is anime. It is far from a fairy tale and the theme is very dark. It has very little lighthearted comic relief like a lot of other shows have, but I think this make for a more dramatic and epic show. I’m a huge soundtrack fan, so here is a song from the show: Gut’s Theme.

Bench is still hanging in the 200’s for between 5-8 reps. I seem to be stronger at the end of the week for whatever reason so I may move this workout to that day. Weighted chinups are also still sitting at the same with 30lbs for 6-10 reps. My lighter days though have all been progressing in strength. I like to keep the reps around 12-15 for these movements. I have also been using much higher reps with arms instead of the heavier reps I have done in the past. That being said I still like this split a lot and have stuck to it longer than almost any workout I can remember. 3 moves a day for 3 sets. Done.
As for cardio, I did 2 sessions this week on Tuesday and Thursday. I also played tennis yesterday and will play again today. I’m also getting pretty tan playing tennis every week, which is an added bonus.
Macros this week are 133 / 260 (48) / 66 – Protein /Carbs (Fiber) / Fat and Calories at 2100. I must admit though, that these numbers are what was tracked and I probably ate much more than this amount. Nothing exciting with dieting though. I have decided to stop eating all pork/pig products. Not that I really ate that much before. After seeing some documentaries and realizing that pigs have very similar qualities to humans, I feel really bad what this industry as turned into. It’s disgusting and it doesn’t need to be that way. I’m also cutting back on the red meat too, but I still eat dairy and will continue to eat poultry. Another nasty industry, but I just can’t see myself realistically not eating anything, but fish. Especially with all the nasty toxins fish can hold. Not saying I’m turning into a vegetarian, but the livestock industry is disgusting and cruel to top it off. I’m by no means turning into an organic hippie, but some of this stuff just comes from a natural human emotion of caring for other creatures and I don’t want to be a part of this industry. Especially pigs, because they kind of remind of my dog bandit without hair. 🙂 I mean the Chinese eat dogs and think nothing of it. This s$it needs to stop.
Really considering a new laptop. My laptop now is still good, but it tends to freeze up a lot and is very slow when booting applications. It’s also 3.5 year old, so I’m really tempted to buy a new one.
Finished Berserk season 2. Gory show, but really awesome. I was even thinking about buying the video game, but it looks a little repetitive.
Sarah and I had our first premarital counseling session. It was actually interesting in some ways, just to talk about certain aspects of your relationship. We seem to be very close though in almost every way. 😉
