Default Lift Like a Girl

Today marks going back 'in season' for me. Back on the diet, focusing on another competition. I haven't made a final decision on which show(s) I'll be doing to finish out the year, but of the ones I'm looking at I'm aiming at peaking all through October with the possibility of carrying through for one more in November.

I'm going to be doing a PSMF for the next few days. It sucks, but it works. And after the first day or two it's not all that bad.

Today's gym time was only 30 minutes moderate SS.

I've been on a hiatus from the gym for the last week and a half or so. I guess you'd call it a serious deload. Mainly I was simply taking a break to try and deter hitting a burnout. I've already been through a little over three months of intense show prep this year. I took a week off after that then moved into a short duration cycle of higher volume heavy work. Taking a break before hitting the prep cycle again helps me to both physically and mentally prepare for what I'll doing before the next show. Readjusting the diet and reformatting programs and all that jazz.

I did stats this morning. Can't say I'm all too pleased with them. But in the grand scheme of things I'm really not up all that much from where I was right before the last show. I'm just ready to get those stats back down and get my abs back lol.

Goodluck on all the dieting and training. Sure you will be back to peak shape in no time! And do what ever you have to do to stay sane. I cant even imagine the commitment required to get in the type of shape required for a show. I will stick to my 3 x a week starting strength...for now!

It's a lot of discipline, that's for sure.

Once I'm done with the PSMF I'll be in the gym 6 days a week. But I think you'll be surprised to see that I don't have to spend ALL my time there to get down to contest shape ;)

The first couple days of it really isn't all that bad. After about 5, I'm really sick of it. And the longest I've ever done it was about a week and a half. I didn't gnaw my own arm off but the cravings were horrid.

Protein Strictly Mother F***er is the perfect way to describe it Especailly to people that get confused when you say protein sparing modified fast.

I hit between 750-850 calories a day on this. The program calls for NO fat. So the protein choices need to be on the low end of natural fat levels. For me, every meal the whole time is chicken and broccoli. Even breakfast (and of course I add in some EFA's and vitamins too).
