The final and my favorite box of the meal prep. Although I always default to the one and only sweet potatoes, there are times I venture out to the legendary guilt trips.
Continuing the meal prep series of the 3 boxes, today we go deep into the protein box. Or should I call it the chicken breast box?
More meal prep! Today let's go in depth into the veggies box. It's not merely about the broccoli, a variety of veggies is important too!
3 boxes meal prep. A little different from the usual ones we see where you cook a huge meal on Sunday, and have meals throughout the week. I've never gotten that to work, I want to so badly but I couldn't, so I figured out another method.
I'm back, the podcast is back! Actually technically I didn't go anywhere, but I haven't been updating the podcast, and I didn't leave a memo, my bad my bad! It's been 200 consecutive days of the daily vlog, and now it's time to do a.. daily podcast?
Out of training for a few days. The first powerlifting injury. Meantime? 3 vlogs in 7 days.
The very first vlog of the pohhu experience is up!
Back from deload, no more myfitnesspal, scale weight going down, still hitting PRs. A quick one this week.
Deload week has ended. Good food, lots of food this week. Ended on a double whammy of to dinners in a row of Burger King. Spicy double cheese whopper, 1000 calories. So worth it, so so worth it. Continuing the cut tomorrow. Much more strict this time.
9 weeks of cutting, now into the deload week. Deload 10 days to be exact along with eating back to maintenance. It's only day 2, it feels been feeling like a vacation. A mini rant about the fitness/health industry today.
Casey Neistat announced his 368 project a couple of days ago, got a 368 project of my own in the works. Food and training have been on point. PR after PR after PR. Sleep has been the sacrificial sheep, but overall just making progress daily.
Weight cut extended. After a haphazard 7 weeks weight cut wise, we're back to square one. Extending the weight cut for a couple of weeks to compensate. No more 8 week weight cut, now the primary goal is to get to 8-10% body fat.
Numero 40. We've come a long way, from zero exercise, vegan, zero supplements, minimal meat to full on powerlifting, daily supplements, whey protein, macro tracking, more meat than ever. A look back at the steps taken, and planning out the future steps.
One month, 4 weeks complete! Officially into the halfway mark. Triple PR. OHP, bench, and squat. New week. New mindset shift. New PRs. This episode is about fiber and fats. The struggles of reaching minimum fats & fiber.
Been in a limbo since I reached my weight goal in October 2016. Been floating around trying flavors of the month without a real goal in sight. That's changed. Got my head straight, clear goals to chase. 280/210/310. SBD. In kg.
This hunger I've never experienced before. Not even during my 110lbs(50kg) weight loss. Starts with the stomach growling, and slowly turns into the whole body shaking. No idea how to battle it so I gave in. Fed it junk. Lots and lots of junk.
Week 2 almost felt like a failure. The initial weight cut plan was too strict. Didn't have the urgency to do it like I did with my initial weight cut. Not giving up the weight cut, just back to the drawing board for a new strategy.
Week 1 is done. 0.9kg(2lbs) lost. 1500 calories a day doesn't feel half as bad as it sounds. Plenty of energy to lift heavy 4x a week. Everything has been on point. Maybe even losing slightly faster than I had hoped. Breakdown of the week.
It's starting. Monday starts the 8 week cut. Trimming the fat, preserving the muscle. Back on a pure whole foods diet. Eating 1500 daily calories. Lifting 4x/week. Documenting everything. Daily updates on Instagram. Weekly updates here & Medium.
It's been 12 weeks since the start of the bulk. The master plan was to go straight into a cut and start trimming the fat. Life got in the way, so time for a mini transit. Recapping the powerlifting & bulk process and game plan for times ahead.
