Solid day today. Started off my morning with the old faithful whey protein shake with banana. I had a protein bar for the morning snack and a cheese stick and celery with peanut butter for the afternoon snacks. Lunch was a big old chicken sandwich on whole grain wheat. Dinner was grilled chicken with the low fat 7g mission tortillas while drinking my recovery drink. Good balance of carbs and protein today and kept the fat around 20% of total!
Today's leg and back workout was decent. This is the last high impact workout I have for 8 days since the Recovery week begins on Sunday. With this in mind and the fact that my shoulder has been tender I did not kill myself on the pullup bar today. I still was able to get in 12-14 reps on all the exercises but I decided not to push for the extra rep or two that I have been doing to save the shoulder. However, I didn't take the same approach with the lunges and calf raises and really banged those exercises out! My legs are tired but a good tired! Oh, and I finally found some TIGER BALM and it is on right now and it is AWESOME. (Thanks Tai Chi Girlie!)
Got through all of ABX again today. Focusing on breathing has really helped and now I am trying to keep my form perfect. The only real issue I am having is the oblique raises - I moved off the hip and a little more on my ass like Tony and it is very hard now. Form is everything I guess! And the mason twists still wreck me.
Tomorrow is Kenpo X and I am excited. I have to leave the house around 6am tomorrow so I will probably workout before dinner.
