Scott Abel said it best, and i'm more and more inclined to agree, nothing tops caffeine as a pre-workout supplement. Coffee is the best way to get into the gym in the morning (after a good solid sleep of course). Only a few days in, but the hybrid dieting approach i think is definitely working, of course I should probably chalk some of it up to the insane dieting/volume training i did the 8 weeks prior, but whatev. I'm not feeling a ton if ill effects and...dare i say it...i look alright. Seriously, two plates of bad chinese food at lunch and no slow down? Nice. Definitely hittin up some conveyor belt sushi at PAX, aww yeah:

  • DB Neutral Incline: 5x5 60
  • TBar Row: 5x5 125
  • DB Flat Alter Press: 5x5 55
  • Bent Fly: 5x5 35
  • EZ Reverse Wrist: 5x10 25

Three workouts into two-a-days, i think i can do this. I'm used to the idea that the first week of a new training cycle i lose sleep, it's just the way it's been for me. The interspersed off days are really helping, I think i may even take a break from cardio on off days for a few weeks and see what happens. Allez. Workout track of the morning: Left Behind - Slipknot. (and yes, the live in london cut off of disasterpieces IS THE DEFINITIVE VERSION!!!!)
