Another 6 weeks have gone by and it’s time for the Tall, Dark and Handsome boyfriend and I’s workout to change.
Diet – as directed by the coach. I’m doing a small cheat meal plus a half refeed day per week! Do you know how wonderful last week’s refeed day was? Right after eating all of those carbs I was amazed at how full my muscles looked! Now I totally understand why competitors do a carb up on competition day. I also had an awesome workout right after. Lots of energy! … there was one down side to the refeed day, after the last meal where I had to consume an enormous amount of carbs my stomach was bloated and I didn’t feel as good. I need to find carbs that don’t bloat me (I know, TMI.. sorry!)
I’m VERY HAPPY that the coach still said NO CARDIO!!! Woohoo!
I’m lift weights 4 to 5 days a week.
So here are my starting weights and exercises for the next 6 weeks. The goal is to at least maintain my strength and hopefully go up here and there while I continue to lean down.
Barbell Bench: 100lbs x 7 reps x 3 sets
Hammer Strength Incline Chest Press – 80lbs x7x3
Conventional Deadlifts – 200 lbs x7x3
Single Leg Extensions – 55lbs x8x3
Seated Leg Curls – 80lbs x10x3
Calves – whatever we feel that day!
Watch out for the shoulder workout in part 2!
P.S. I really LOVE my workouts when I have deadlifts on the split. They make me feel bad ass!
