Dallas Europa Prep Log: 9 days out

Dallas Europa Prep Log: 9 days out

Current AM weight: 209.0 lbs

Last night was the best sleep I have had in weeks. I think the hard leg day just exhausted me so much that I finally knocked out and got a solid 8 hrs of sleep. I still woke up twice to pee like normal, but I actually could fall right back to sleep. When I did finally get up and weight in not to my surprise I hit the lightest weight I have been all 23 weeks I have been on prep, 209.0. Visually, it was clear as day too. All my lines are dug in deeper and more lines coming through. I am for sure flat, but that is just the way it needs to be to keep getting the fat off and be able to make weight. I am really happy with this look and I think I can keep refining this look and might not need to drop much more weight at all.

The plan for the day was to keep cardio the same. But, since I dropped another pound I did feel like I could bring some carbs back in to stay a little fuller, but I don’t think it will really impact weight drastically. I add 30g of carbs immediately post training. I have been having all my carbs in my 2 meals prior to training and I do feel fueled for my training session and I don’t burn out. So, post training was a good spot to replenish glycogen and aid some recovery. All other aspects of the plan I kept the same. I do have to say cardio was damn hard this morning though. I know it was from just training legs and having to do the stair master the next day, but it really pushed me. But you need to know if it isn’t challenging you then it probably isn’t going to be changing you. Cardio should be pushing you during every session, but you also need to know what is the limit to not run into the ground. Usually when my legs starting feeling really heavy like concrete and performance drops in the gym I know its time to pull back. I think the smartest thing I did this past prep was add in that complete off day from cardio and weights. Right when I am feeling beat up, my off day really regenerates me quite a bit.

This week I was a little ambitious and booked too many clients to train. I have never been this lean and it really challenges me at every moment. Having to stand in the gym and load weights for clients is not ideal for being close to a week out. I have put so much into this prep, I just went ahead and cancelled all my training sessions for the rest of the week. I also have been putting more focus to my online clients as that is what I really want to do anyway.

Back training today was a challenge, but I put the hammer down on it. There was just no pump happening. I could still push good weight, but minimal pump from being flat. Its all good, just part of the process.

One thing I am trying to night before bed is CBD oil. It stands for Cannabidiol, an active part in marijuana that has no psychological effects, but has effects on decreasing inflammation and reducing anxiety. I will give the full report on it tomorrow.

Remember stay driven, hungry, and rise up to victory!
