Today Bfast: Bulletproof Coffee and 2 oranges. I was running late and need to go grocery shopping.
Lunch: Grilled Chicken Burrito. I was going to go to Chipotle to try their pastured carnitas but then realized there is not one in Oakland.
Dinner: Large chicken breast 2 handfuls of blueberries 2 lemon bars(they were in the break room) 2 carrots and an orange.
CFE workout: Short Intervals - "Short Tosh" at Piedmont Track
3x (100m, 200m, 400m) equal work:rest ratio.
I ran very consistent splits but damnit if I feel like I should be faster! Times:
14s, 36s, 1:20
14s, 38s, 1:20
14s, 39s, 1:19
Ooooweee those 200's were killer! That last 400 was beastly as well! I had not done that workout before and enjoyed it. Hard and fast, just like I like it.
ME: Push Jerk 45x5, 65x5, 95x3, 115x3, 125x2, 130x1, 135x1, PR bitches!!! Oh golly did it feel good to hold those 45s over my head. It was a first and definitely will not be the last.
5 Push Press @ 65% (80#)
Max Rep Dead Hang pull ups 14, 6, 7, 5, 5
Rest as needed between rounds
Push press felt very light and my pull ups have fallen off a bit. I have not been paying too much attn to them as of late and if you don't use it you lose it.
On a personal note, as a trainer I am finding it difficult to convey my nutrition ideas to my clients in a manner that gets them to buy in and change the way they eat. I have decided to start working on a packet of sorts to help them on there way and answer some questions they may have like "Isn't saturated fat bad?"
It will probably be a mixture of handouts pulled from Robb Wolf, Diane Sanfilippo and Chris Kresser's sites. THANK GOD FOR THOSE AND ALL THE FREE INFO THEY HAVE!! I will of course add some of my own flare in there as well, my thoughts on nutrition and general exercise. I am hoping to have a 5-10 page packet I can give to my clients when they start training with me. That's not too much to read is it? 10 pages? I didn't think so.
