    OT: Workout and Diet Log

    Hey!

    So my training is getting more serious now, and I have a lot of work to do to get ready for my trials. Plus, I'm not 100% sure where that is going yet because they've advised me to ditch boxing and go into MMA. Which is pretty awesome, but so is boxing

    I'll be logging my workouts and diet here, progress photos and weight etc. I might do some video recipes for some of my meals too, prawn stir fry etc.

    Feel free to follow along

    I will make each day a separate post, primarily for organisation. Progress photos and weight etc will be updated on this post.

    My diet is logged here every day, along with my macros, fibre and sugar.

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    Tuesday was back;

    I only recorded 4 exercises.

    I did some warm ups for deadlift and then did a couple of sets at 85kg (I only just got my form sufficiently proper for me to start adding weight ), and finished with a set (recorded) at 70kg to compare my form now and then (previous video posted).
    Spoiler


    Then I did some BO BB rows (7 reps heavy), warmed up with a set of 12 at I think 50kg. As you can see, I walked off and forgot I was filming it...
    Spoiler


    Next up was some T-bar Rows at 65kg. This is an exercise I only recently added to my pool, and I love this ****! Linear jammers are awesome too (shoulders).
    Spoiler


    The last thing I recorded was some rack pulls at 60kg.
    I did four sets (this was the last).
    Spoiler




    I also did some pull ups, lat pull downs and seated cable rows. Legs tomorrow

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    Yesterday was Legs;

    I did some hill jogging to warm up after my usual stretches etc, and then into my squats. Wednesday is my high volume/low weight leg day, with my heavy workout on Saturday.

    Started with some back squats, 40kg for 12 I think.
    Spoiler

    I filmed two of my sets, not sure why....
    Spoiler


    Next up was some front squats. I hadn't slept too well yesterday so I wasn't feeling great, I considered going home actually, but I figured any workout is better than nothing.
    Spoiler



    Next was some cleans. I haven't done these in a long time, and the day before was back, so the weight was tiny. I actually farted mid rep... You can see me laugh.
    Spoiler



    Next up is calf raises. I'm really liking the way my calves are looking. I can't wait for the plymetrics gear to be set up.
    Spoiler



    Other exercises done were;
    Seated calf raises
    Hamstring curls
    Various ab work

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    Today was shoulders

    Did some stretches, 10kg presses and some cable one arm raises to warm up.

    First up was BB presses;
    You can't actually see the presses because I'm an idiot and recorded my last set of them, thus I couldn't record it again :P
    Spoiler



    Next up was some SM back shrugs. I'm using 30kg and really just focusing on that contraction. I'm thinking I'll up it to 35kg next week.
    Spoiler



    Then some DB shrugs, 30kg x2 for 10.
    Spoiler



    Last recorded exercise was linear jammers. I do three sets of 14kg, increase the weight and work back up to 14 reps per set, and then repeat. Today was a 10kg increase - and it shows.
    Spoiler



    Other exercises for today;
    Drop set DB presses
    Burnt out with some dropset upright cable rows with the rope. 27kg > 23kg > 18kg.

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    How much do you weigh, kitteh? This is good motivation for myself to start proper training (should make a pushups/situps/chinups thread. ^.^) What trials are you training for, btw?

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    I weighed in yesterday at 77.8kgs, so at a glance calculation that is about 170ish pounds? Give or take 20, can't be arsed to actually do the maths, I never went to bed last night.

    I was training for boxing originally, but it looks like I'm going into MMA. There is a chance that I will fail my medical though due to a shoulder injury, if that happens, then I'll probably do bodybuilding.

    I'm probably not going to post my diet to be honest, although I will post recipes of meals if anybody wants them. I'll add my 'MyFitnessPal' link to the first page, which has my diet for every day.

    Today was arms (biceps/triceps/forearms). I didn't go to bed last night due to waiting up for my parents getting home from Turkey - a grumpy Kitteh = no recordings

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    A couple of recent progress photos. I was basically told to beef up - my fitness and technique is great, but I've also been a slim person. Unfortunately, with a big bulk comes a decent amount of fat, I can't wait to start my cut cycle.

    I can still see the progress though.

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    I've been really struggling to eat today because I never went to bed last night, and when I haven't slept I basically feel sick all day. I need to hit my calories though because with the intensity I train at I just have to eat properly. I probably shouldn't have stayed up to meet my parents, but heck, too late now. Bed soon...

    I'm going to have a couple of caramel rice cakes and a chicken and kale sandwich, do some chemistry homework and then have my milk and my shake and climb into bed!



    Todays macros;
    372 carbs
    81 fat
    261 protein

    Due to me struggling to eat, I basically had to bulk my calories up with hob nobs and a take away. There was just no other way that I was hitting my calories today.

    Re: OT: Workout and Diet Log

    When I was in college, I had a friend who did kung-fu and karate. He did 6-month cycles, where he would binge protein and fat for 6 months (not that he scarfed fat, but it comes with the protein), and then he would cut for 6 months (no fat and low protein). That's something that you might try to incorporate. He was extremely buff. He was only about 160 pounds, but he was shortish and had almost no fat.

    I've been needing to do something similar to what you're doing for a few years. I'm in terrible shape, and I'll be 30 in about a month. I really need to get myself motivated to be healthy, so I'll be watching your thread and hopefully I'll do something similar soon.

    He had a low protein diet? That doesn't sound right at all. You would lose your muscle.

    I'd be interested to hear why he did that
