Going to bed at 10am, I woke up with 6.5 hours of sleep. Today was a drag. I was pretty well tired all day but I had my mind set on this 10a workout.
I woke up and simply grabbed a protein bar (ProMaxx Cookie Dough) and a banana. I had the protein bar 3 hours before my workout and the banana 45 minutes before my workout.
To get my Clean and Press weight up, I focused on the Strict Press today. The idea for this is if I can lift the weight with strict form (without the power bump) then I shouldn't have a problem with the bump from the clean and press. I managed to hit 100lb for 3 after super setting 4 sets of Assisted Pull Ups. My Pull Up game is weak sauce.
Recovery and Fuel
As if one workout wasn't enough, I went for another later in the day. Eating 1 cup of chili and having an all powerful "growth-nap" for recovery after my workout, I fueled this second lift with a peanut butter/trail mix blend (delicious recipe to come) and a granola bar.
FYI, I don't really like the growth nap concept but I was very tired.
During the second lift, I sipped on Xtend BCAA to prevent the breakdown of muscle and to aid in protein synthesis.
Post workout, I had a "Lean Shake" from GNC, 1 cup of chili and 2 scoops of Amino Energy.
