    Less than 2 weeks out from the first comp now and I'm starting to feel crap.

    Last week my trainer lowered my carbs from 100g of berries with breakfast, 1 cup of oats after training and some berries before bed, to 55g of berries in my first meal only. My carb depletion was awful last week anyway then this week she has upped my protein by 100g per day and gotten rid of all carbs.

    At this moment I'm feeling tired and emotional. I'd be hungry too if I wasn't eating right ...

    I had a mad arm session with my trainer this morning. Went to body weight tricep dips which I even surprised myself on, especially considering I could still push them out after completely depleting my triceps over 4 sets of 3 different tricep exercises one after the other.

    Doing a bit of posing in the mirror this morning I noticed the vein in my right shoulder was popping which is good because it means I'm getting leaner. Felt leaner around the stomach this morning too. My trainer ...

    This week I have started a new plan.
    The exercise plan is called 6.12.25 and it is where you do 3 different exercises on the same muscle group with no rest, the first 6 reps, second 12 reps, and the last 25 reps. It is supposed to help with strength, growth and endurance of the muscles all at once. Yesterday was my first session with this plan and I quite liked it, although I did back and shoulders which I do enjoy anyway.

    Tomorrow I'll be doing arms and Saturday I will be ...

    I had a bit of a set back this week.
    On Sunday night just before bed my face was a bit red and a little swollen. When I woke up on Monday I'd had an anaphylactic reaction to something, no idea what, and my face was the size of a balloon. I looked like I had been repeatedly punched in the face. It's kinda lucky I didn't die in my sleep actually since anaphylaxis constricts your airways.

    Doc reckons it could just be stress causing my immune system to react to something I'm ...

    This morning I did hamstrings and shoulders.
    As I'm doing GVT at the moment, my workout consisted of 10 sets/10 reps of prone (lying) hamstring curls and BB shoulder press.

    At the end of it, I had to do 3 sets/10 reps of Pelvis Thrusts with a BB and DB Lat Raises. Needless to say, on my way walking over to the area to complete this second part of my workout holding a 20kg barbell, I vomited in my mouth a little bit. Thank goodness it was only BCAA water. Yuk.
