Thursday, More Dbl. Presses

9:00 KB

Warm up

40 2 hand swings 1 mn. on 1 min. off x 5 sets = 10 min.

Work sets

#1 clean, press (military), snatch, neg. press, transfer w/ 26, 1.5 min. on 1 min. rest x 5 sets = 12.5 min.

#2 double clean, dbl. push press, hold (2 sec.) x 10 reps w/26's, 1 min. on 1.5 min. rest x 5 sets = 12.5 min.

I'm still digging the double clean, presses w/26's.

#3 40 2 hand swings w/26, 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 5 sets = 10 min.

Normally I would consider 2 hand swings w/26 a "warm up" exercise because it's not that hard. But after reading Mark's post about swings, I decided to use the lighter weight but really "work it". Swinging deep and fast, man it really got me sweating, perfect way to end the workout.

#4 Bottoms up cleans, 10 L, 10 R, 1 min. on 30 sec. rest x 5 sets = 7.5 min.

Total workout 52.5 min.

My calories on Thurs day were a little higher than planned, my eating seemed to be all over the map that day. I hate when I start to constantly "snack", I much rather plan "meals". I'm trying to slowly put on some weight and that's going perfectly. Last week my weight was way too low.

As much as my head likes weighing as little as possible, it's time to "grow up", quit being a victim of my emotions, admit for my health that I need to weigh more. My current weight goal is to stay 126.0- 127.8.

Wednesday AM weight 126.2
no exercise

Menu
coffee w/cream 60 cal.
figs/prunes/almonds 400 cal.
espresso w/cream 35 cal.
oats/milk/almonds 285 cal.
lg. broccoli salad w/chicken 550 cal.
veg soup w/pasta 300 cal.
grilled rib eye steak 250 cal.

Total calories 2130

The dried figs/prunes/almonds are adding up the calories fast! Time to back off a little. I'm adding more red meat, and although my calories are higher (on purpose) my food choices are good and nutritious.

Looking forward to the weekend.

It's crazy how fast those calories add up LOL

Today I actually ate LESS than I expected. Veggies do the trick filling me up.
