New York Pro 2018 Prep Log: 12 days out

New York Pro 12 Days Out

Morning weight: 220.6lbs

Today I woke up one day post burger cheat meal. I still felt pretty bloated from the meal and it made sense my weight was up higher. Visually I still looked a little watery in my glutes when compared back to the day prior to my cheat meal weighing 217.8lbs.

I talk to Matt and we decided in the morning to push really hard the next few days to get weight closer to the 212 mark. Cardio was increased, and calories lowered slightly. The day prior I took off from PM cardio, so my legs were a little fresher for the week ahead.

45minutes PM Stairmaster level 8 (15 minute increase from previous days)

Following this diet for the day didn’t really have an impact on appetite. However, I will consume greater amounts of fluid due to lack of food volume. I easily drink 2 gallons of water down per day. I also had two bowel movements today, sorry TMI. But this is important to let me know the burger meal was clearing out and digestion was normalizing. I had been getting really gassy as well and I think it is due to the asparagus in my diet. I will likely remove it from my diet tomorrow and stick to green beans and spinach.

I trained Back today and I really didn’t see much detriment to strength. I was able to match my weights and reps from the previous session without any issues. The second cardio session was also very do able and I didn’t feel any extreme fatigue in my legs from the extra time duration.

Stay tuned for tomorrow and see the impact the changes had on my physique.
