Thursday, August 15

The phrase "I think most sedentary individuals tend to over-eat, and most athletes tend to under-eat to reach their goals" hit home with me when I read this article from Lift Big Eat Big. I totally agree with this statement and I am guilty of it. The funny thing is that even in the short term I eat worse and more when I take a few days off from training (and yes, I am going on vacation tomorrow and plan on eating everything in sight). When I am in a consistent training phase it is very easy to get into a routine that includes quality eating. However, I recently realized I wasn't eating enough to reach my goals (aka get stronger). I have added in a lot more carbs, mainly rice, and I feel so much better and my lifts have finally started going up again. Of course, all of this depends on your goals. If you want to lose weight or shed fat, don't go piling on the carbs. As always, ask your coaches about anything if this stuff confuses you. Workout for Thursday, August 15 Power Clean 5x3 @ 75%
