The Start of Something New

After much frustration last week dealing with issues regarding domain names and web hosting, I’m finally ready to begin posting my daily workouts and nutrition. So welcome to my very first post! Last week was my first week back to training, after a lay off due to injury and need of a mental break. My plan right now is a simple four day push/pull split, with some cardio and snatching mixed in on “rest days.” Week One was

M: Front Squat- 50%(3×5), Military Press 50%(3×5), Bench Press 50%(3×5)

T: Deadlift- 50%(3×5), Pull-Ups(3×5), Pendlay Rows “50%”(3×5)

W: 20min on the airdyne, 20min on the rower, Snatch- 20kgx20min, 40kg(3×3), 50kg(3×3)

TH:  Back Squat- 50%(5×5), Military Press 50%(5×5), Bench Press 50%(5×5)

F: SLDL- 50%(5×5), Pull-Ups(5×5), Pendlay Rows “50%”(5×5)

As you can see, I’m sticking with sets of 5, early in the week I only do 3 sets, later in the week I bump it up to five.  For the most part I’m doing the same exercises on each push and each pull day, with the exception of squats, and deadlifts. I’m also doing abs each day that I train, and I’m keeping it some what random there.

Each week I plan on upping it 5% on everything, with the exception of week 1-2, I’ve moved from 50% to 60%. I was pretty sore last week after having so much time off, but it only took that one week to get acclimated, and now my training legs are back under me. Going from 85kg(187lbs) last week to 102kg(224lbs) this week didn’t seem like that big of a deal. Deadlifts tomorrow should be interesting, mostly because I’m hook gripping my deadlifts and my thumbs have definitely reverted back to regular thumbs after not hooking for so long.

I’m going to be posting my workouts each day, along with the music I’m listening to while I train that is pumping me up. I’m going to try to remember to take pictures of all my meals and post everything that I put in my body. So please join me, and if I miss a day, feel free to call me out: Tony@Weaponizethemachine.com

Ingredients:

4 eggs

1/2 of a ham steak

1 yam

1 tsp pure maple syrup

Block of raw milk cheddar cheese

Coconut oil

Bacon fat

Directions:

Skin yam and chop into small wedges. Place into hot skillet with bacon grease and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Scramble eggs thoroughly and let settle

Hand shred cheese down into a 1/2 cup and add to egg mix, then rewhip the eggs

Once yams start to brown on the edges, chop ham and add it to separate pan with coconut oil (approx 1 tablespoon)

Add maple syrup to egg mixture and rewhip

Once all pieces of ham are browned, turn heat down slightly and add the eggs to the pan

Keep turning and folding the eggs in the pan until they are mostly dry

Put eggs on plate, dump yam over top of them.

Put a helmet on, to contain your brain for when your mind is blown after the first bite.
