Hi all, started V-Diet on monday.
Been overweight for about 5 years. i naturally sit around 69kgs and i went up to 95kgs. Been training since Jan, getting back into boxing and doing some weights.
Alright, the biggest hurdle was that i fractured my rib at boxing. its not a terrible fracture, i can barely even feel it most of the time, but it absolutely kills if i try and lift heavy weights. duh.
So, anyway, i did a little test run on 8x8 using very isolated exercises basically to check out whether or not my rib would give me to much discomfort with the lighter load.
Found out there is alot of exercises i can do that don’t aggreviate it on vince’s 8x8 protocol.
So anyway, better do some catch up.
MON-28th of Feb 2011
felt fine all day, no hunger pain at all and found out that NEPA tired my legs more then i would have imagined. i’m not really a walker.
Push ups 8x8 (couldn’t lower muscle down on a bench to do DB do to rib. felt no soreness on the pushup)
Fly machine 8x8
Dips 8x8 (this surprisingly didn’t affect my rib at all.)
shoulder press 8x8 (slight pain through rib halfway through. nothing terrible but will have to keep an eye on it.)
Dumbbell Side Lateral raise 8x8 (again some pain during this but definitely bearable).
TUES 1st of march.
did NEPA, felt good being up so early and out and about.
Took a severe turn by afternoon. felt sick, had a headache and my energy absolutely vanished. not sure if this is because carbs are so low and my body is just getting use to it. But by the time i went to bed i was seriously trying not to vomit.
WED, 2nd of March.
Still had a headache and felt like vomiting in the morning.
Got up, went for a NEPA walk, by the time i got back i was close to spewing. So, what better way to fix it then to go to the gym eh?
Took ten Biotest BCAA’s time for workout.
Chins 8x8 (for some reason this doesn’t hurt my rib at all. Which is great. I can actually do 8x8 bodyweight chins so i used one of the Bands i have to assist me. by the end of the chins i felt pretty thrashed tho surprisingly i no longer wanted to vomit. still slight headache)
Lat pull down 8x8.( no discomfort)
cable rows 8x8. (no discomfort) Thats it for back. those are the only three exercises i can do without severe discomfort
Another 10 BCAA tablets
Bicep curl 8x8
hammer curls 8x8
No discomfort on either.
10 more BCAA’s
and straight home for Surge Recovery drink.
Now, for some reason and i have no idea why. i felt 100% better after my workout then when i first got up. i dont know if my body started eating my muscle for energy or fat but whatever happened i started to feel pretty good. Rest of the day has gone smoothly. looking forward to the rest of the week. hopefully no more dips like tuesday afternoon but will have to wait and see
