No Bonk yet! Energy is still through the roof!
So the low carb/high protein diet is still going strong. I weighed myself this morning and was down another pound and I am still feeling great. I know the Bonk is going to happen soon but I will keep going until it does!
Sidebar: If you have an Academy Sporting Goods store where you live they have Nike compression shorts for only $12.99 -- marked down from $25 -- good deal, thought I would share!
Today's workout was one of my better ones! Last week when I did Legs & Back I posted that it was a very so-so low energy workout. I was upset with the amount of reps that I did on the 8 pullup exercises, which was only 112, down from 136 from the previous Legs & Back workout. However, today when I hit the pullup bar on the first exercise I did 20 reps. Then I did 20 on the next and again and again. All they way until the last switch grip pullup exercise where I crapped out at 16 reps. The total was 156 reps and I felt great afterwards. I also tore right through the Sneaky Lunges which are always brutal. Just a fun, high-energy workout.
Then came ARX and I killed it today. I added extra reps on crunchy frogs, Fifer Scissors, V-Roll-up, and did 50 Mason Twists!! Now, I was exhausted after the Mason Twists but it was a good exhausted!
Nutrition-wise it was also a very good day. My ratio was right at 75% Protein/5% Carbs/20% fat. Very clean day. Grilled Chicken, Veggies and Fruit. If this is your first time reading my blog this is not the recommended P90x Phase approach, I am trying a little experiment for a few days so don't try this if you are following the P90X nutrition guide. The body has a harder time breaking down protein. This means the more protein I eat the more the body has to work. The more it has to work the more fat that is burned. The more fat that is burned means my weight will decrease. Pretty simple actually just not a long term solution to weight loss, but a decent short-term solution to burn a couple extra pounds of belly fat!! (I hope)
Tomorrow is Kenpo X Day. I might substitute in the P90X PLUS Interval workout again to get a better calorie burn. But I also have a long day of work, chores, and yard work planned so I might be tired and just do Kenpo. We will see how I feel!
