Chicago Pro 6 weeks 1 day Out

I slept terrible here in Puerto Rico. You get so routine on prep and anything off plan seems to throw you for a loop. I woke up very very early and was bloated for no BM the day before. I got up and drove over to the Power House gym here. It is actually a pretty well equipped gym. They don’t have a stair master, but they had an ARC trainer and arguable it might be better. I set the resistance really high and keep a moderate rate, but the calorie expenditure is good and its very low impact.

Rest of the plan today was to train back and continue peaking Christina. We started the day off giving her higher carbs but she gets watery so easy. We have practiced peaking her and when we switch to fats she gets really hard and can still get great pumps. I feel like this is not the majority of cases, but I do know others like this. I think individuals do get more fat adapted on prep, but also likely these people store more intramuscular triglyceride. Has me wondering if these same people might have more slow twitch fiber and might respond better to higher rep range training. That thought just came to mind, not sure there.

Training was very good to today. I got to try some machines I haven’t had access to in a while and some ones I have never tried. You have to be careful on prep doing this. The novelty of a new movement can make you pretty some and add on a lot of fatigue, so be mindful of this, keep volume in check.

Hey John! Just like you anything that interferes with my routine mess up my BMs and I get bloated. Just curious have you have tried senna tea (smooth move) to help incourge motility. If so what was your experience with it… any pros/cons?

    Yes I have used smooth move tea, it works well. I try to use laxatives sparingly and find the real culprit of the problem. On prep it really is the low calories than is decreasing GI motility. Ginger at 1200mg prior to meals helps a lot.
