This was an interesting day to say the least. I woke up heavier again! The thing about it is I look better. I am pretty sure it is due to a change in supplementation, making question if I might need to pull something out to make sure my weight continues to trend down. I look improved though, I am rounder and harder. Honestly, If I was doing 212 I would have done a refeed day today. But, with this weight goal in mind it is looking like I am going to just have to push harder. I will work on the cardio side of things, so I can keep food up higher. Going to give this a day or two longer to get a read on it.
Training today was shit, because I intended up straining my hamstring doing Romanian deadlift. I was still on a build up set, lifting 495lbs and on my second rep I felt a little pop and immediately let go of the weight. I can’t tell you how discouraging this is. Literally this was the same time frame last year that I tore my quad in prep. I know this tear was not as bad, but still I have to work around it and its going to make doing cardio a real bitch. Luckily, I do have a Neufit machine, which is incredible for rehab. I already hooked my hamstring up to it and started the rehab process. Intial goal is to not let it shorten and tighten up on me, I want to keep it at full length, which I can do with the machine.
I will see how it feels tomorrow and give you an update. I did have a great calf workout though, maybe my calves will get rowdy on prep and distract from my dainty hamstrings.
