I'm a mother lover, you're a mother lover, we should love each other's mothers.

wow, today I really felt terrible. Didn't sleep last night studied all weekend. Had an exam today, 2 the rest of the week and three the next. Needless to say I am Pizumped.

On an awesome note. My 12" log came in today from Pitbull. I did a few reps and boy ya, it hit me in all the right places. My shoulders were hurting(not in a good way), back hurt and even my knee a little. Definitely an ergonomic piece of equipment!

Deload week, perfect timing. No overhead pressing or deadlifts - shorter workouts

Dynamic warmup - didn't stretch for a day and could feel it, pretty lame.
2 x 25 mini band no money
2 x 25 mini band pullapart

Cable Press Lo-Hi 4 x 10 ez SSw/10lb MB slam 4 x 10
(Subbed these for the clean and press)

DB Bench - need more 25's
60 x 8
85 x 5
100lbs x 17 - new best

Ring Reach and row 2 x 15/arm

1 arm pullup work 2 x 3-4
DB Windmill 2 x 15/side

Axle buddy curls 8,7,6... w/85lbs

Nothing to write home about. Strength going up. Was surprised about the PR on DB Bench despite the dump haze I felt like I was getting lost in.

And now I eat

6:00am - 2 chicken drum sticks (organic cage free blah blah)
Sheep's milk cheese (Raw/grass fed blah)

8:30 - 2 eggs with spinach and cheese from above

Handful raw walnuts
3 sweet potatoes
2 chicken drum sticks

2 sweet potatoes
2 chicken drumsticks

5:00 - 1/2 shake of...
4 bananas
5 oranges
2 grapefruit (I had some fruit that was going bad)

6:00-7:00 20g BCAA and water - figured I was deloading, no need for a ton of BCAA

7:30 - 1/2 of shake

9:30 - 3 eggs
2 chicken drumsticks
sweet potato fries

Supp a dups:
5-10g fish oil
vitamin D3 - 2,000 iu
Digestive enzymes with Betain HCl w/each meal
Probiotic (4 strains taken empty stomach w/water in the moaning)
about 2-3 good old fashioned liters of well water per day.

Dan, your diet looks and sounds fantastic! This is Matt Hunt by the way :) You think we could discuss diet together one time or another after all of your test taking is done? I have recently gone Paleo/ Primal and could use some tips! Thanks

Any time brother, I've tried it all as far as diets go. I eat pretty much paleo but I do eat butter, sometimes cheese. Its all raw grass fed organic stuff though. I'd eat more of it if it was legal in NJ. Anytime you want give me a call 609 941 4597. I love talking about this stuff.
