Weight Training – 6/14/24

After Kenpo last night, I ended up sleeping for an extra couple hours this morning.

I had grand ambitions of going to the gym early this morning – but after sleeping in that didn’t happen. But I still made it and I tore it up aside from cardio – my calf started cramping up a couple minutes in after I finished lifting.

I went in and got an electrolyte supplement and a body scan.

I was pleasantly surprised with the results:

Weight on 5/24: 295.7lbs
Weight on 6/14: 299.2lbs

Muscle on 5/24: 120.8lbs
Muscle on 6/14: 131.2lbs

Bodyfat on 5/24: 28.9%
Bodyfat on 6/14: 23.9%

A 5% reduction in bodyfat!

There isn’t a single variable I can attribute the changes to:

  • Quit Drinking for almost 30 days
  • Drinking 1 gallon+ of water daily
  • Switching to zero calorie energy drinks/soda and black coffee
  • Doing core work most days
  • Increased carb/protein intake
  • Reduced fat intake

My workout today consisted of:

3 sets of 5 back squats at 305lbs
3 sets of 5 overhead press at 165lbs – 3rd set came up short with only 4 reps
Deadlift at 5x155lbs, 5x245lbs, 5x335lbs
Shoulder Taps 4 sets of 20 alternating taps
5min elliptical pre-workout, 2.5min elliptical post-workout
