Quick training today:

16KG - Get-up Combo x 3 each side
(arm bar + get-up + windmill at the top of the get-up then down)

28kg x 20 alternating swings

Double 16kg Clean + Front Squat + Push press
5 reps at the top of each minute for 10 minutes

Z drills

This actually helps with the intermittent fasting and hunger - and on that subject: wow can I eat a lot in the evening! I actually need to go to the store and get some calorie dense foods to keep around for the evening feeding period.

No more lunch breaks - exercise breaks!

It is a surprise for sure but the light KB work is a great compliment to my barbell work.

Explain again why you are fasting. Never heard of such a thing while trying to develope maximal strength.

Disturbed sleep patterns, not recovering from workouts, etc... so I went with a drastic dietary change to "realign" my system and it is working - what I will probably end up doing is incorporating some protein shakes during the day eventually - believe me I was doing the overeating thing and not feeling good.
We will see how it goes.

I dont think I could ever fast, I like food way too much! I eat 7-8 times a day, usually shoot for 50-70 grams of protein and 30-60 grams of carbs, plus a salad every day, no dressing. 95% of my carbs come from oatmeal, I also eat some wheat bread, brown rice, and potatoes. Always have energy and I seem to recover fast.

Disturbed sleep patterns. I hear you there. My doctor gave me some good drugs and now I sleep like a baby. ;)

That is, 50-70 and 30-60 PER MEAL

nice brett. interesting to see what the IF does to your body comp as well as strength. I think the protein drinks throughout the day are a good idea. I would be wary of pure whey protein though. it digests too quickly to have alone imo.
casein and lactalbumin, as well as whey would be a good blend.

Thanks Rick,
We will see where this goes.

Thanks Rif - I'll try to find a balanced shake on my next trip to the GNC.
