--== TRAINING & NUTRITION UPDATE ==-- I have been very consistent with my diet this year. The goal has been to prep my meals like I used to, get all the good animal and plant meals in each day and if I want to eat more or if I am provided with extra calories, then just add those on top of the base diet. No skipping meals to then fit my macros. No reducing portions of good foods to fit in shit. Just eat all my meals and be consistent with that... as that is something I was definitely not doing for the last half of 2017 and my training and physique really suffered because of it.
Base diet macros still around: P300 C200 F100, but I would be averaging so many more than that each day, mainly from fruits, nuts, yoghurts and any other foods I am gifted.
Weight has been hovering between 99-101kg the last few weeks. Starting to feel big and strong again in the gym. Everything has been progressing weight/rep wise of late, except for legs, as my left quad has been rather tight the last 2 weeks. I have been a little worried about tearing it, so I have really backed off on my quad stuff and will stretch and roll it out and hopefully loosen it up, so I can get back into squatting some PB's. ^_^
Going to keep eating up and training hard for the majority of the rest of the year, focussing on getting bigger and stronger. The last 4-5 years I stayed very lean and my training was constantly plateaued, so feeling fat and happy about making some gains again now.
Twenty percent bodyfat may look unimpressive, but my mental state is always so much better the fatter I am and my training always progresses much smoother. *CONTINUED IN COMMENTS*
