I wasn't very hungry yesterday and I tried to get more calories in by eating 1/2lbs of raw almonds and added that to 2lbs of plain yogurt. Bodyweight is almost down 10lbs from what I was before I got injured. I need to redouble my efforts and work on getting more calories in. Going to start adding milk to my shake before bed now. Perhaps that will help some.
Band Face Pulls
Band Press Downs
Band Straight Arm Lat Pulls
Ankle Weight Lying Leg Curls
Comments: I had been debating over whether to do face pulls instead of lat pulls or to add face pulls as something to the gym based extra workouts or just do both. Went with that option. Had to take a few breaks for the face pulls but none for the other stuff. Right behind the knee on my right leg is a little tender. Probably from working hard with the added leg curl based exercises and volume. My Sling Shot for benching arrived today. Interesting, I'll need to do some testing with it.
I'm hearing talk of upcoming contests now and it has me excited. Granted there aren't any event details but at least I have dates now. May 28th will most likely be my first contest back, just waiting to see whether I'm aiming for the Kumite or Battle of the Bad Ass (they're both on the 28th, otherwise I'd be doing both). So three months out at this point and hopefully I'll have time to get in a eight week training in to prep. The other two at the moment are one at Brute Strength Gym on July 2nd and the Cardinal Classic in Michigan on July 23rd.
