148 on scale - been a tough week with a few cheats here and there.
That aside, there's been some recent posts on the Book "Body by Science" by Doug McGuff described by Jimmy Moore in his podcast, by Keith of TTP fame here in Part I and again here in Part II, and tried out by Jeff here. Basically it is a short, but wicked intense workout where repetitions are done at a painfully slow rate - emphasis on pain, meaning burn. Do one set and try to hit the whole body. No rest for the fatigued with constant muscle tension.
My reps were at a count of 10 mississippi down and 10 mississippi up. For the exercises, I did some leg presses, bench presses, military presses, curls, and seated rows. All done on universal machines to failure. The burn is ridiculus and several exercises I was shaking pretty good. And this was with fairly light weight. Didn't count reps to much except to note if I only got 3 or 4 or if it seemed like more than 10. Highly suggest doing these on a universal (which is a slight downside) so that reps can be done to failure. Upside is I was in and out of the gym in less than 30 minutes, shower included.
For dinner tonite, got a chance to man the grill, despite the drizzle. Grilled some lime-cilantro chicken. Preheated the grill on high for a few minutes, seared one side for 1 minute, flipped over - essentially searing the other side, then turned the heat down to low. Grilled for about 12-15 minutes per side and it turned out fully cooked yet super moist. Fantastic. Steamed some leftover green and yellow squash that I julienned. Had some chocolate and nuts for desert. Have to keep that in check, though.
