18th of December, 2012 — Workout — Back Lunges, One-Leg Romanian Dead Lift, Toyota’s & Hyperextensions

OK Convicts, read to rock this again?

My legs were getting shaky there towards the end of the One-Leg Romanian Dead Lift set’s.

My legs haven’t collapsed underneath me in a long time! On the last rep of the Toyota’s, after I jumped, on the way down things got real. I almost fell over, there was literally nothing left in the old Quad’s to hold my tired ass body up. Man they feel like someone put gasoline on them and lit them on fire, not a bad burn, just super intense heat on those bad boys – Feels good man! Thankfully no more leg exercises tonight because its been a battle.

Havent had to take a breather really between workouts but I’m taking a five after that one – Gonna mow down a handful of almonds! Man I love those lil guys.

I’m so psyched too, my protein power finally arrived today. I wasn’t paying attention and ran out last Thursday  had to make an emergency order! I’ve also decided to go back on my Mass gaining diet again for a few months. If interested check out my nutrition tracking –> Here. I really enjoy being able to eat a crap ton of food and it seems to make my workouts much more fulfilling.

Any struggles and / or victories today?

Diet’s not been the greatest

I’m having a tough time with all the prep work that goes into maintaining my nutrition goals, and its making me mad! Anyone else run into this?

I’ve always had a fairly balanced and healthy diet, as far back as I can remember. My mom and dad engrained in my from a young age healthy eating habits. Mumsi always made a vegetable whenever we were sitting down together for a meal ( which I’d have to say was a lot more often than most ). Thankfully I’ve always had a thing for veggies and actually like them much more than fruits.

I’m currently on a Mass Gaining diet though, and I find it difficult sometimes because I’m so used to being really cut, averaging around 8-13% body fat ( estimated because I don’t have calipers ). Now that I’m trying to put on more muscle I eat like a horse, and sometime when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror it discourages me a bit. I’m not saying that I’m a monster now, I’d say I’m a good 13-17% body fat now, but I’ve also put on around 5-10lbs of muscle too. I guess I’m just curious if others go through this when they’re on a mass gaining diet?

I just can’t wait to get back down to my normal body fat percentage, and have that cut look I’ve had my whole life! For those interested, I log all my food intake as well here
