I did review today on an amino acid supplement from Metabolic Nutrition, I have give you my opinion, the nutritional facts, ratings, and give you the ‘how to’ use it and for what kind of training! make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel, I have plenty more where this came from!
Today I did a review on a pre-workout supplement by the name of “Razor blast powder” (I had never heard of it) but got this supplement free from the Arnold Classic.
I will continue to do reviews next week on other supplements/products so be on the lookout!
It has been an upward battle with this 12 week cut, everything sinks in quickly when you realize you have to keep a close eye on everything you eat and all your workouts. I have had a lot of support on my YouTube channel and from all of you and I appreciate that because I need it. Today’s workout was a leg day, and abs (which if you know me, you know I love working the abdominal muscles) and I don’t mind leg day but leg day means sore day! lol
What was your workout today? leave it in the comment section.
- Squats: 3 x 8-10. I did 105 lb then moved on to 125 lb with my last set
- leg curls: 3 x 12 -15. 50 lb
- leg extension: 3 x 12-15. 50 lb
- leg press calf raise: 3 x 15-20. 130 lb
- plank: 3 x 60 seconds
- twisting hanging knee raise: 3 x 20 (this sucks so bad, always hard and always feeling the burn) lol
I did not do any cardio today, as tomorrow will be a cardio workout day along with my strength training. My eating habits are okay, I think yesterday was a higher carb day, so the rest of this week will be low carb days and moderate carb days (which I am getting used to, kind of). Are any of you doing a cut program? let me know how it is going currently in the comment section!
Your Fitness blogger,
So yesterday I told all of you I would keep you posted on my 12 week program I started, with that being said, I did manage to retweak my macros to my liking, which actually surprised me quite a lot, because my calories went up this time, and I was expecting them to go down, but anyways… they will vary because some days I plan on having low calorie days and high calorie and moderate calorie days (something I will probably share with all of you to keep myself accountable and on track)
I haven’t yet decided if I will post my meal planning/meals on my blog yet during this 12 week program, it sounded like a good idea though. I figured I would share my IIFYM (macros) with all of you though..
My New Macros:
Protein: 122 grams
Fats: 59 grams
Carbs: 221 grams
Fibers: 22 grams
Again my starting weight: 144 lb
Goal weight: 135 lb at the very least, but aiming for 125 lb at the very most.
I think once I figure out the moderate calories, lower calories and high calorie days, I will post it to let everyone know my goals to meet for each week. Yesterday, I stayed within my macros and did very well with the calories too, because I was like 836 calories under my goal. BUT I did not hit all my macros, I hit fats fine, but was under in protein and carbs (which will happen sometimes and I rather that anyways in case I am doing a low cal day) anyways this is all going to take a long time to talk about, so let us skip to the workout.
- Squats: 3 x 8- 10 (105 lb) but felt very weak during my squats.
- leg curl: 3 x 12-15 (50 lb)
- leg extension: 3 x 12-15 (50 lb)
- leg press calf raise: 3 x 15-20 (130 lb, 150 lb, 170 lb)
- Plank: 3 x 60 seconds
- Twisting hanging knee raise: 3 x 20
- push up challenge: 45 reps
Yes, I can lift more in all of these exercises (looking back at previous post, you will see this) but I am gradually going to higher the amount of weights, because I want to be able to lift for those specific amount of reps with whatever weight I am lifting without stopping. For example I can do 100 lb in the leg curl and leg extension but not for 12-15 reps, only maybe a good 3 if that, and so.. I wouldn’t start off doing 100 lb until I can build enough strength to do so. Yes, the higher the weights, the lower the reps BUT in my circumstances, I want to eventually go up to maybe 70 lb or 100 and do 12 -15 reps.. (this might sound all confusing) another time I will explain more.
Are any of you doing IIFYM (macros), if so, i want to see your numbers in the comment section and give me some ways you hit your macros and what ways you have missed them.
