Deload Week

I've been on an animal kick lately.

Well, deload weeks usually end up being ridiculous workouts so here we go.

10/18/2011 - Deload deadlift/squat (Did I just say squat?)

225lb Deadlift x 10 reps
15 box jumps 24"
10 handstand pushups

5 rounds for time. Perfect warmup (Just kidding it was brutal). Finished sometime around 7-8 minutes. not sure of the time because my i-phone 6 (old flip phone) doesn't like to take time past 5 minutes.

Back Squats - Its been about 8 months since I've done squats! I have the itch to get back into these for some reason. Took it slow and kept them all light. All reps were past parallel.
45 x 5
95 x 5
135 x 5
165 x 5
185 x 5
205 x 5

Whip Smashes 3 sets of multiple variations
Band Chops 3 x 10/side

Fun night. I've decided to add in some different movements lately, train a bit more often throughout the week but still keep in two days per week devoted to strength. It keeps me excited to train.

Good Eats:
1 cup of bone broth made with chicken legs and broccoli stalks (In know what you're thinking, delicious!)
A bit of Liverwurst made from organic pastured beef trim, beef liver, beef heart, beef kidneys. get your vitamin A and D on!

1/2 shake
1/2 can coconut milk
2 TBSP olive oil

Other 1/2 shake

2:00pm - 1/2 half of this salad
Salad with vegetables
2 sweet potatoes
2 hardboiled eggs
A bit of tuna from last night's dinner
Home made olive oil based dressing

other half of the salad

6:00pm 10g BCAA and coconut water
