Its time for another update boys and girls! I have stuck with my timeline of starting at the gym on July 1st. I got an official weigh in at 225lbs, which is in the range of where I was when I tried to get into bodybuilding when I was in my early 20s. The major difference between then and now is that back then I was lean and mean. I know I will get back there with a quickness though.
Some things I have noticed right away that differ from back in the day- Soreness is nearly non existent! I am not really holding back in the gym either. I am not entirely sure that this is due to the diet completely but i don’t know what else to attribute it to. Back in the day I was into tons of protein shakes and meat, meat, meat. I got big and bulky and was ALWAYS sore the day after a workout. Now, 1 week in the gym and I feel great!
My body weight has stayed consistent at 225lbs, but my belt on my pants has already moved in a notch since last week. I say that is a big WIN in my book. I will post again this week with the routine I have created for the gym so anyone can follow along if they desire. Tonight I leave you with my magic pre-workout drink recommended by my mom. This stuff is magic!
You will need a juicer (I use a Hurom)
1 fairly large chunk of ginger
I only use organic fruits and veggies. My opinion is, why spend the time to juice if you’re going to allow yourself to ingest the junk chemicals they spray on the non organic stuff. After you extract all of the juice, strain out the pulp if you want or drink it down. It is great either way.
Give this a try and see if it helps with your after gym soreness! So far i’m saying it’s pure genius!
