2nd day of the 1st week back

Posted on: 2004/01/08, 02:50 AM by: rev8ball
Got to the gym again today... pretty damn happy! Again, nothing too major, but this is the skelton of what my workouts will look like over the next 8 weeks, in other words, I'll be adding and subtracting some lifts. On a really great note: I haven't done deads for a reeeeeeeeeeally long time, but I decided to work them in a little to build up some explosive strength. Since I can't go past knee level, I just did them off the rack from there:

Deadlifts from the rack
HS Dips
Cable Tricep Extensions w/rope attachment
Incline Dumbbell Curls

Getting my diet more in line, especially quanity wise, but still need to work on the volume by next week:
- omlette with ricotta cheese, peppers, onions, tomatoes
- Shake: 1 cup of oatmeal, 2c of milk, scoop of protein, 1 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 8" Mesquite grilled chicken sandwiche from Port O' Subs
- Bowl of my homemade chili
- pre-workout shake
- Animal Snak bar, glass of milk (forgot to bring my post-workout shake)
- Homemade Manicotti and chicken breast
- Small protein shake

    I usually grind up the oatmeal dry before adding the wet stuff. Less chunky that way.

    TY much, Mutt, but I've got a little bit to go before I'm actually back "in the swing of things"......LOL! And, yes, triciakent, I put 2 cups of milk in a blender, add 1 cup (2 servings) of oatmeal, and then whatever else I want in it. It's a great and easy way to get carbs and fiber in the morning. I posted here at FTs the complete recipe for my "Shake of Mass." Maybe I'll add it to my journal entry.

    Am I reading that correct? You put oatmeal in your shakes?
