Entry #1043

Felt shaky and glycogen-low again today. Here's the thing: when I walked in the gym, I was full and lethargic. That's how long my warming-up is, though my metabolism is also pretty fast if I go from bloated to starving in 25 minutes. Crazier still is I had almost entirely low GI carbs before training: wheat bread, milk, some almonds.

Still had a good session, but I felt shaky and depleted when benching. It was a weird sensation. The warm-up had my muscles feeling ready to lift a truck, but my blood sugar felt like an empty tank. Consequently I was explosive but wild and unsteady. I bet a 1RM attempt would have been through the roof.

Bench press:
195 x 5
225 x 5
255 x 11

Barbell skullcrushers:
135 x 8, 8, 5

Kroc rows:
130 dumbbell x 20, 12, 11, 10

1 20 second chin-up rep
