Nutrition Tip for Today: Protein is super important not just for acquiring or maintaining lean tissue, but for metabolism, blood sugar control, etc. Consequently, every time you eat something, make sure a quality protein source is included. Contrary to belief, peanut butter or nuts ARE NOT significant sources of protein due to the fact they do not have a full amino acid profile. Some examples of significant/quality sources are: whey protein, chicken breast, turkey, lean beef, egg whites, fish, etc.
Progress is starting to pick up. I have gained about 2 pounds the last few weeks, and I can feel the growth coming. My appetite is still insane and while I am holding some water (inevitable once I introduce more carbs), I am still lean and holding vascularity, so all is good. Yesterday, my training partner and I both experienced a significant increase in progress on every exercise for our Upper Muscle Rounds (6 sets of 4, 10 second rest periods)...the goal for Muscle Rounds is to reach failure on the last set. Let's jump on the gain train!
Our workout yesterday included: Muscle Rounds for: Smith Row, Chest-Supported T-Bar Row, Close Grip Lat Pull-down, Pro Bar Lat pull-down, Flat Bench Press, Dumbbell Flyes, Cable Tricep Push-downs, and Dumbbell Cross-body Curls.
The rest of the workout included a pump set for Leg extension, Calves, Adductors, and Abs.
I included a couple videos from my YouTube Channel I just started...I'll be adding more training showing some Muscle Round Action.
