Okay so yesterday was my first day training with Dae. (Ex Olympian, Captain of Marine Corps, body builder, Swimmer, etc. ) He has a Masters in basically anything related to health and fitness.
Let me tell you this…I have worked out hard in my life…my old trainer was a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and a HUGE believer in leg workouts for women with heavy weights etc. He put me through hell before and it was tough.
Yesterday, however, I probably had the hardest leg workout of my life!! For an entire hour with maybe 3 or 4 30 second rests total did squats, lunges, single leg press, jump squats, jumping lunges. Basically no breaks, lots of drop sets, lots of heavy sets, lots of back to back sets. My ass is annihilated today. It is so sore I can’t even believe it. I literally feel like it looks better already hahaha.
Anyways long story short, my new trainer won my heart yesterday and all of my funds will be going to him in the future. (He is giving me 6 free sessions because he is just that nice of a guy and wants to help me out.) I feel so priveliged to be working with him. He is a genius when it comes to building muscle in any place. He knows how to get definition on a certain part of your arm if that is what you want. He knows just where to tweak an exercise to get that definition and okay thats enough rambling haha
My eating has been great also. I started my second phase of my lean down and am now eating 1600-1700 calories per day.(Was at about 1900-2000) I will do this for 3 weeks and then cut down again to about 1400 and then the last 3 weeks leading up to competition I will be at about 1200 (Depending on how i am looking obviously) But that is the plan for now.
I have been eating less brown rice lately, because I feel much fuller off of sweet potato for a carb. I have been eating turkey breast rather than chicken breast too. (No reason really, but I like it better at the moment ha)
That is all I have for now…I have another session with Dae on Wednesday…Biceps and shoulders. Since I got a damn good cardio session with Dae yestrday, i did steady state cardio after the workout and will be doing my Interval/More vigorous cardio on Tuesdays and Thursdays when I do not train with him.
