Chicago Pro Prep 7 weeks 4 days out

Body weight came up a little bit today. My weight almost always comes up on my off day. I even did pretty low carb, but I think the difference is my training day has two protein shakes in it and off day is all solid meals. I think keeping the shakes on my off days might help when meals are getting close together and I don’t get that double meal belly stack of fullness. It happened last night meal 5 and 6 were like 90 minutes apart. It’s something I will try next off day, probably will be crazy hungry though lol.

I limited cardio to 25 minutes today, planned on doing extra at night time. It was quad day, which is my most taxing day for me, so I haven’t been pushing cardio hard on this day. Needless to say the workout was awesome and it killed me, so no cardio tonight. It just doesn’t even make sense to beat my legs up that much harder with cardio. I do have a cool tool I have used the past two days for recovery. My buddy is a medical sales rep and let me borrow a demo laser that treats inflammation and increases cellular metabolism and repair. Using if for my golfers elbow, but I have been using it on my quads too. Help keep them fresher.

Another thing I did on my diet today was move my morning meals closer together and spread out my afternoon meals more. My solid meals take longer to digest, so I want at least 3 hours between them. Meal 1-3 are pretty quick and sit light.

Quad day was a beast of a workout. I am loving my SSB squats, I totally dumped the weights off the bar today. We don’t have clips for the bar and I missed the bar hook on one side. the bar dropped down to the safety pin and all the weight on that side fell off lol. I was okay, no injury to me, I think I am just too much in prep mode to even get embarrassed. 9 work sets for quads, 2 for hamstrings, 6 for calves.
