The Next 4 Months
For the past 2 months I have been training for the TSC. Concentrating a lot on my deadlifts and snatches with the 16kg KB. At the beginning of my training I said I really wanted to shed fat along with build my strength. I found out that for me, it doesn't work that way. I am not saying others can't, just not me. With the way I was eating, which was high protein, high fat, and very low carb Monday-Friday and then high carb refeeds on Saturday and Sunday was great for my strength. I build strength and muscle like crazy. And to be honest it feels great. I love that I can deadlift 210# or even more. But now it is time to shed the fat.
I am not going to tell you how much I want to lose or what weight I want to get down to for two reasons. One, I don't even know. I have a number in my head, but who nows what I will look like. I might be too small or I might need to do more. I don't know. And secondly, I am not ready to share with everyone just yet. I will soon, just not now.
As for my workout plan. It will consist of 2 days of strength and 3 days of conditioning. I am going to keep up with my deadlifts. I love doing those. Also, I am going to work more with my 16kg KB.
Food plan...I am keeping it simple. Over the past 2 months I have learned a lot about my body and how it reacts to different foods and food groups. I have learned that me and carbs don't like each other. I mean don't get me wrong, I LOVE CARBS! But my body doesn't react well with carbs. And when I say carbs I mean the simple carbohydrates. Not the carbs you get from veggies and fruit. When I eat carbs I get very tired and crabby and I feel so bloated all the time. So for now I am going to stick with my proteins, fats, and veggies/fruits. But don't be surprised if you hear that I had some sugar. I can only hold out for so long!
The next four months should be fun and exciting for me. I am hoping I learn a lot more about my body.
Till next time...
