Entry #488

Bag-work (with gloves, this time)

Box squats (barefoot):
10 X 2     225 lbs.
> I was much more explosive at about set five and upwards. Everything just clicked in. I felt like I had retrieved my old snap back.

Romanian deadlifts:
5 X 8     175 lbs.
> The same as above. I was like a machine on this. The weight isn't exceptionally high to begin with, but it was much easier this week with 20 lbs. more on the bar than last.

Weighted Janda sit-ups:
3 X 8     10 lb. plate
> Very awkward. To compensate for the lack of a partner, I set a loaded barbell up behind the sides of the power rack to prevent it from rolling forward, and then lay on the ground with my calves in front, using that to pull myself up. It was jerky and my feet kept moving out of place. I'll keep working on this.

Crush Trainer:
5 X 5, with 5 second timed holds on the last rep of the last set.

I renounced pizza tonight for bland tuna and brown rice. It's time to get serious. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal anyways. When I'm bulking, I hate all food. When I'm cutting, I deny the food that I want. Except for maybe beef jerky. I'll have to get some of that.


  1. You can actually make pizza decently healthy by doing things like getting thin crust and extra sauce + veggies, or making your own with whole grain dough and choice toppings, but nothing will ever be better than chicken/tuna and rice.
    Hope those timed holds work well for you.  They really made the transition from trainer to 1 easy for me.

  2. I like sprucing up my tuna with bell peppers, onions, and garlic, to name a few.
