Tucker: Red meat to the rescue

Food got a little low this week and I continued to drop too fast. I dropped another couple pounds by the middle of the week so I talked with Noel and he wanted me to add some fats that day to see if it would fill me out. I got permission to get a burrito bowl with steak and guac (yum), so I immediately picked it up and put it down. It wasn’t a cheat meal so I couldn’t get after any other goodies but man, I sure do love dieting because it makes the most simple things in life pleasurable. It’s not fun when you start getting really bad cravings, but I haven’t had any as of yet so the extra flavor was just what was needed. The next day I was up about a pound and a half and I’ve been fairly stable since and only lost half a pound in the last few days.

Still feeling pretty flat, but since the results are still going well we won’t change anything unless I start dropping really fast again.

Hammer strength incline press
Seated Cable pec flies
DB flat press
Machine pec flies
Decline hammer strength press

Neutral grip pulldown
Reverse grip pulldown
T bar rows
Hammer strength rows

** I haven’t been doing much compound work for my back lately so just stabilizing and rowing the T bar up was hitting everything from my hams, glutes, electors, core and back. I went light and shelled out a bunch of reps, but I was beat afterwards. Staying away from compounds has been fun but this was a good reminder that it’s time to put those in again.
