Workout Log 03/18/2008

For scaling back up to my hard workout from backing down to home workouts, I am surprised I performed well. My heart rate is just as strong as I had it last at the gym, dare I say possibly even stronger? I did take it easy on myself and I am really surprised at my results! My intensity is still there as well as my drive to push. It is really inspiring to see myself being able to keep a pretty good pace without exhausting the hell out of myself.

On top of that all… I have also decided to hit up Vitamin Shoppe in West Plano to pick up some of my supplements and begin my hardcore regimen. I ended up picking up a 16oz jar of L-Glutamine powder and a 2 lbs Crea-Tech Extreme from Vitamin Shoppe’s BodyTech brand. My protein powder jar is running a bit low, so I will have to pick up a new jar soon. I have called up Ultimate Sports Nutrition out in Frisco about getting in some Activate Xtreme so I may swing by and get a bottle and watch myself amp up again. I am still in debate about the nitric oxide and a thermogenic, but probably may not go that route… Due to the loading dose recommendation on the Crea-Tech Xtreme, I will wait until next week when I can go seriously hardcore with the 5 day loading dosage and from there do my maintenance dosing.

To add a mix to things… I will also be logging my meals and snacks just so I can keep rough track of how many calories I take in for accountability . This is so I can try to stick with my goal intake of about 1,500 – 1,750 calories, as some of the BMI calculators online seem to say that 133 lbs is where I need to be for lean muscle. If there are fitness junkies or fellow “deathbeasts” out there who could better advise me, it would be appreciated.
