Tonight we dine... in HECK! (Or my parent's kitchen)

A wise man once said..

"Flow is so sweet, I eat angels for dinner, Call me what you want, I don't give a finger in the middle"

- Lil Wayne

Poetry in motion really. On the same level as my man Thoreau and Benny Franklin.

I think I got some training in today before my practical exam. My heart rate was sitting around 150beats per minute waiting for the exam to start. Even one year in I still can't control my nerves before these start!

Back to training. Today was fun. I'm deloading but I ended up going for some yoke work for speed. I've never felt so fast with these weights.

Static Stretch T-Spine/Ankles/Hips/Quads/Lats

Dynamic stretch (really gets me gassed!) 15 min.

135 x 5
185 x 5
235 x 3
285 x 3 - all easy, back is feeling better. I'm working on getting tighter with my deadlift. Makes the weight almost want to pop off the floor. I'm so tight!

Supersetted the deadlifts with box jumps 3 x 3-5 @51" box jump(1 step) Got one from a stand still too

Yoke Walk
180lbs x 50'
360 x 50'
500 x 50'
600 x 50' in 10.1 seconds. New best 700 x 50' in 15.6 seconds. New best

Backwards Sled Drag SS w/band chops
205lbs x 100' (all sets had a turn around at 50')
255 x 100'
300 x 100'
350 x 100'
400 x 100' 450 x 100' Had to take 2 breathers near the end.

Really jacked up about the yoke. Didn't go in planning on going that heavy but everything was feeling put together and I felt great. Still not using a belt for anything. Excited to see the difference once I throw it on.

Eating good tonight!
10:00am - got some much needed sleep
Olive Oil

1 apple w/almond butter
Lots of bone broth soup w/chicken and veggies, and some beef lard.... Can't seem to eat anything nowadays without beef fat in it.

5:00pm - post exam nutrition/preworkout nutrition
A whole bunch of raisins (pretty much tore up my stomach, don't think I'll eat as many in the future)

6-7:30pm - 30g BCAA and 1 liter water

4 oranges
2 grapefruit
2 bananas
nothing new here

10:00pm - Feast! I love this part of the day.
Lots of sweet potatoes roasted in olive oil
Big Salad, lots of oil
Roast Beast

What supp do you use to accomplish 30grams of BCAA's? You must be spending 200 a week on that shit!

I use this stuff

37 bucks for 200 servings(5g). If I do 40g per serving it lasts 25 servings. I train 4 times per week this lasts about 2 months. I use less when deloading. I may cut the amount down some and see if it has any effect. That comes out to $1.50 per serving. $6.00 for the week. I could sneeze that money away on coffee, 1 drink at the bar etc etc. Not bad really.
