Tucker: The last meal

This week has gone well so far. I’ve finally started to see my hamstring creeping through and it’s given me some extra confidence for that extra push this next month. I don’t hold much water or fat on my front for some reason, but when I turn around I’m like a whole different person. It comes off my back first, then hams and glutes are of course last. Even now I’ve got nice ab and quad veins and all that good stuff, but I can still grab some pretty thick amounts of fat off my glutes and upper hams. Hopefully that junk will come off during this diet, but it may take me another couple diets to really get that dense and hard look in my lower body from the back.

Okay, on to the good stuff! Some family friends came into town and they wanted to treat Julie and myself to some Korean BBQ. I got the thumbs up from Noel and it was on. We spent a couple hours plowing through all you can eat short ribs, pork bellies, squid and octopus and all sorts of various marinaded meats. It was great to indulge a little since I haven’t had a cheat meal in over a month, and if you’re wondering to yourself “did he swing by the grocery store and get ice cream on the way home?” you are correct. Ben and Jerry’s topped off a great night.

That was Wednesday and it’s now Friday, and I’ve chosen to take yesterday and today off from the gym. Yesterday was already scheduled, but I did something to my elbow this week and it’s been bugging me so I think an extra day will be good. Nothing really hurt while exercising, but it felt really sore and irritated these last couple days so I want to play it safe. My body and muscles are loving it though and holding onto the extra glycogen and fullness from all those fats that night has my muscles popping like crazy. I can’t wait to take some pics at the gym tomorrow and post em up.

Workouts have been good and I’ve kept them short to Noel’s liking

Standing calf raises
Seated calf raises
Machine side raises
Cable side and rear multi directional raises
Machine neutral grip press
BB shoulder press
DB front raises SS w/ upright rows

Cable bar press downs (hands semi supinate)
Cable bar press down (hands pronated)
DB incline skull crushers
Close grip bench
Cable bar curls
Cable rope hammer curls
DB seated curls

** even though arms had the most sets and exercises I got through it faster than any workout this week. I kept the rest to 30 seconds or less and just pumped out set after set and moved from exercises really quick
