Went to gym this morning for more 5x5 including
- ran 3.0 in 22:23 and 5k in 23:03. May try the 5k hills route tomorrow
- bench: 135 still down, but will keep plugging away
- incline DB press: 40
- cable flyes: 60
- front DB raises: 12.5
- upright BB rows: 65
A few meals from last few days. Marinated NY strip with sauteed mushrooms, onions, peppers, and steamed broccoli:
After the gym this morning, made a massive 3 egg omelett. Followed the details for How to Make the Perfect Omelette. Despite liberal buttering of the pan, it stuck a little too much and I destroyed the shape, but it tasted great. Added pico de gallo, pesto, and cheese. Also had a couple of leftover steaktips with spicy bbq sauce on the side:
Lastly, I listened to Superhumanradio podcast #330 that discusses fat burning during fasting. This is in line with what I have been doing lately. I usually skip lunch and go to the gym instead. I've found that the workout is improved compared to eating a priori and apparently there is a benefit of increases fat burning. Sounds great. Recommend listening to this one.
Guest was Mark McCarty with Oasis of Hope.
- Mark recommends fasting prior to exercise for fat burning to get lean and stay lean
- Mark also recommends fasting post exercise to enhance post-exercise ketosis
- Carl recommend eating prior to training for bulking phase
- Mark emphasized eating low-fat foods (something I disagree with)
- Work based on some research at die7stufen.com (the seven steps)
- Mark hypothesized that ingestion of carnatine plus hydroxycitrate (?) emphasized fatty acid oxidation
- also spoke a lot of medical jargon I couldn't catch or didn't understand like free-form amino acids.
