What’s next

Last post was about I was doing and what I achieved. Moving on to what I’m doing now.

I’m on week 2 of Summer prep plan ,(Its fall but who cares ) Its pretty hardcore with hypertrophy and cardio .

The only change I’m making to the program is I am increasing the rep count. I want to experiment with higher rep count and less rest break because I believe female bodies work well this way.

According the program, he wants us to do 20 mins of light cardio after every workout ( 4 times/week) and 3 cardio sessions of atleast 30 mins of which 2 are interval training. Pretty hardcore, right?

I’m going to follow Hal Higdon’s 5k Training for intermediate instead. It works well with this plan because it has one long distance run, 3 sessions of 3 mile run, I’m gonna change it to 2 sessions of 3 mile run and 30 mins of cross training. It also has speed work and tempo runs.

So I’ll be sticking to the program orignally specified( almost ).

Now with all this, I need to make changes to my food. I NEED TO EAT MORE, to create GFLUX ( eat more, exercise more, lose weight, reverse doesn’t apply). Otherwise I’ll be burning more muscle and get more frustrated and burnt out.

Wish me luck 🙂

P.S: I used to eat meat with almost every meal , but I’m changing that ( another experiment). I’ll have meat maybe once or twice a week or when I’m eating out and I’ll include lots of veggies, cooked , steamed raw however. Legumes twice a week.

So here is a sample:

M1: 3 scarmbled eggs with onions and spinach, small fruit

M2: Egg Plant , olives stir fry, steamed brocolli, handful of nuts

M3: Beet root , steamed brocolli, handful of nuts

Pre Workout shake + banana

Post workout shake + fruit

during workout : BCAA

M4: Kidney beans + veggies

1tbsp fish oil, 1 multivitamin, 1 tsp fiber.
