23 Apr Paul Oneid – 7 Days and A LOT of Mind Games
Due to personal and professional commitments, I have decided not to compete until Fall 2018. Tucker and I have worked hard to improve my body composition over the last 4 months. That journey is nearing its end and I will be sharing the results in a few weeks when we wrap things up. I am still diligently focusing on my weak points, but this is a new challenge and so far I am having a lot of fun – which is important!

This weekend I hit my lowest bodyweight yet – 215lbs. This was the end goal when I started this weight loss, which is awesome, BUT its FAKE NEWS. If you remember from my previous log about cutting the diet short, I spoke about the small adjustment Tucker made to the diet. Well, the change bumped my weight loss, but it also flattened me out. Flat meaning that I was glycogen depleted and dehydrated – I actually saw a 3lbs swing down since that adjustment. So, yesterday and today, Tucker advised me to add in 100g carbs. Guess what happened? I gained 4lbs! IN ONE DAY! Talk about a mindfuck?! Goes to show how depleted I really was. The key here is that I knew this would happen and Tucker communicated the reasoning behind what we are doing, while keeping me focused on the end goal. I will have my final weigh in on Saturday morning and start to recover from the diet on Sunday.
Training has been really solid, despite the weight fluctuations and cardio amounts. This weekend was no different. I deloaded the bench and opted for floor press. Did these in an EMOM to keep me mentally engaged and to increase the metabolic stress, then did some higher volume accessories. The lower body session was great too, but I definitely felt the depletion. I was just plain tired. I bumped the weight up for the CAT squats and then opted for some short rest singles on the deadlift. Again, I wanted to stay mentally engaged and increase the metabolic stress. I find EMOMs, every30’s, or any type of time constraint helps maintain focus when it may wane. If you’ve ever seen any of my clients train, you’ll know I am a big fan.
