I love leg day!!!!!!!!!!
All my back/hip issues are pretty much gone, so I am thrilled! I just have to keep up with my stretching, foam rolling, mobility, and glute strengthening and not slack on it so that I won't have those issues ever again-it was horrible!
Today's workout started with hang power cleans with some split jerks thrown in with some of them. Here's me doing a clean and jerk with 120lbs, which is around my bodyweight right now:
I really LOVE Olympic lifts!! Wish I had someone to coach me on them to really get my technique better, though. I know there are some things I need to work on.
After the cleans, I did back squats working up to 160lbs(getting back up there!), barbell hip thrusts(added more weight this week-workin' on this booty!), back extensions, and then box jumps and ball pikes. It was a fun workout!
So here's what I'm eating today:
8:00 1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop Syntha-6, 2 tbsp PB2
11:00 PWO-almond milk, vanilla whey, 2 tbsp gatorade powder
12:15 4 oz ground turkey, 1 tbsp salsa, 1/4 cup quinoa, 3 strawberries, 10 cashews
3:15 3 egg whites, 2 whole eggs(boiled), 1 medium apple, 1 rice cake
7:30 4 oz chicken, 2 cups salad with yogurt dressing, 1/2 cup caulifloer, 1 rice cake w/PB2
10:00 whey protein shake with almond milk, 1 tbsp peanut butter
I've been somewhat doing carb cycling this week, and this is a higher carb day-around 200 grams. I'm trying to lean out JUST a little for something I have coming up in a couple of weeks. We'll see how it goes!
