Today my weight came back up from yesterday. This has been a recurrent trend over my last refeed days. Its like digestion the next day after my refeed is slowed down and food gets backed up. Because at night I feel the heaviness in my abdomen. I am going to take a different approach on the next refeed I think it will be far more effective for bringing up glycogen, as well as the hormonal and metabolic response. I think it will agree more with current research on refeeds as well. In, short it will be spread out over 48 hours, rather than 24 hours. I get a bit watery as well with digestion being off too, so I think a longer feeding period will allow for better digestion too.
Training today was excellent. I really felt more comfortable with the SSB squat. I went up 20lb and hit another 2 reps. I know in the offseason I can really progress this lift. I would love to hit 495 for 10 reps with 2 second pauses in the hole. My legs will be massive if I am doing that. I love setting goals like this for the offseason it puts priority in the right place and keeps midset focused when your next show is so far out. I remember seeing Dorian’s log book and at the beginning of each offseason he had his old lifting numbers and his goals written out. He had vision for himself.
