Well, not really a mystery.
I did Week 9, normally, with the correct Macro Diet and then WODs at my box in Lemont. Carl seemed to be heavily focused on their Savage Race so I didn’t really talk to him at all since our last interaction.
But, today, I got the e-mail.
“This is going to be a different training for the next 30 workouts. Probably lots of scaling. That’s okay. Superheroes fall more than they fly. That’s why they’re super.” – Carl
New Macros. 40/30/30 (Protein, Carb, Fat) and a new diet. Real food – No dairy, no grains (Except Quinoa). At first, I looked at this and realized I could do it. When I talked to my gym friend, however, I learned that this is Paleo. Paleo except I can eat quinoa.
So, I trust Carl and I’ll do this diet again. I won’t ask Mike to do it with me again, however, and will be doing this by myself. As much as I hate Paleo, I know it works. I know that it’ll help me get to my goal weight and help me get my butt into shape.
Today will be:
1. Snatch 5 x 3 (70-80%)
2. Snatch Pull 4, 4, 4, 4
3. 2-second Pause Back Squat 4 x 3
4. 15 min AMRAP of:
30 Air Squats
20 Lunge Steps (L+R=2)
10 Inverted Barbell Rows
5 Box Jumps As High As Possible
5. DB Incline Bench Press 20, 18, 15, 12
6a. Barbell Curls 3 x 10-12
6b. Dips 3 x ME
7. 10 min of Row/Bike (moderate pace)
Tomorrow, I’ll be in Cleveland physically with Carl so I’ll be sure to update with what torture he plans to put me through. Maybe even a selfie!
I hope everyone has a lovely week. Make sure to go out there and kick ass.
