5/3/15 – Week 2, Day 2 – ME Upper

One final down and three to go. I’ve been a little stressed the last few days as I prepared for this week but now that I’m into finals I seem to have gotten comfortable. Nothing feels better than feeling prepared so that is how I am approaching this last week of school. As far as training goes, I hit my heavy lower session on Friday so that I could head home to see the family for a while on Saturday.

Today was very exciting for me, mostly because my low-carb prep week is over and I got to carb up after my workout. I started Carb Back-loading at the beginning of last summer and let me tell you, I don’t regret it in the slightest. Having been on an “eating plan” for almost a year, I can see now how much better I feel just by controlling my diet. If you have not read John Kiefer’s Carb Back-loading book then you should even if you have no plans to follow the program. It is well worth the time. As I sit here finishing off my rice and chicken I can’t help but reflect on how much progress I have made over the past year both in body composition and strength goals. I cannot wait to see how much progress another year will yield me. Until next time!
