Carbs always get a bad rap. All too often people remove them from their diet when it’s not necessary. I personally like to keep them as high as I can for as long as I can. Always time the bulk of your carbs around training: Pre workout, intra workout, and post workout. I actually lean towards faster digesting carbs post workout as well, which is why I have been eating cereal. It digests quickly, and gets the job done. Learn how the body works, and don’t always follow the sheep and the accompanying bro science.
Another great workout for the books. My gym partner and I absolutely smashed it, and can’t wait to do it again for Lower Muscle Rounds this evening.
Yesterday’s workout consisted of:
Incline T-Bar Rows, Smith Rows, Probar Lat Pulldowns, Close Grip Lat Pulldowns, Flat Bench Press, Incline Hammer Strength Press, DB Side Lateral Raises, DB Rear Delt Flyes, Tricep Cross Body Rope Extension, DB Concentration Curls, Close Stance Leg Press, Standing Calf Raises, Adductors, Abs.
Appetite is absolutely insane, and vascularity is actually increasing. Actually went over my allotted macros yesterday, but my body is demanding more food. Off days I am actually going to drop carbs more than what I originally planned, per advice from some top level coaches. Since I stopped my prep diet 3 weeks ago, I have added about 12-15 pounds to the scale on any given day. Of course to the educated this does not mean it’s muscle, probably minute or none at all, but instead glycogen and water. However, the result is nice…full and pumped muscles, and a bigger Jay!
The Olympia is in 10 days…I’ll make my predictions soon. Everyone knows who’s going to win first, but the other picks may be tricky!
