A day at the beach, a session at the gym and a night of BBQ and old friends.. Not too shabby!
And yes, the gym was very very warm ;)
Guess what I’m making! Home made super healthy granola, that’s what :)
Wish me luck and stay tuned for the result!
Good pump today!
Trying out a new 3 way split: Chest, biceps & triceps (which I did today), back, abs & shoulders and legs..
Feels good so far.. Always nice to mix it up a bit! :)
Trying out a little increase in my protein & calorie intake!
So for fun I tracked my food today.. Percentage wise it’s looking good (if you ask me). The fat is 96 g and it comes from hazel nut milk, oat milk, flax seeds and peanut butter.. so good fats!
205 g of protein and 240 g of carbs and a total of about 2700 calories. I definitely wouldn’t recommend such a high protein/calorie intake unless you’re working out a lot and trying to build muscle..
Interesting to see the results :)
Finally back in the gym!
Probably should have waited another day, but a week is all that i can handle, and I didn’t push myself too hard..
It’ll probably be a couple more days before I can give it 100%.. But it still felt great to activate the ol’ muscles a bit ;)
Creatine school for beginners!
With all these new and flashy supplements it’s easy to forget the basics.. Creatine is probably the most tested supplement there is, and it’s one of the few that’s actually proven to work..
To keep it simple, creatine increases your energy reserve when working out with high intensity.. I felt a huge difference (after a while) and I’m sure you would too.. To speed the process up, you can do a “bulk” phase, where you take it 5 times a day to fuel up your muscles with creatine. But make sure to follow the manufacturers directions.
A tip though, use warm water so the creatine dissolves properly.. As you can see in the photo, there’s no powder left in the glass and it’s completely tasteless..
Usually you take 5 grams (about 2 tsp) every day of creatine monohydrate.. You don’t need to spend money on the more expensive kinds, monohydrate is the way to go. And it’s normal for your body to bind some liquid while using it, because otherwise it won’t work. So don’t listen to the manufacturers who claim to that their brand doesn’t do this..
Alright.. Any questions??
Spending some quality time with my mom, sister and two of my nephews.. Playing soccer, riding the bikes, going to the beach..
Good times :)
Don’t drink your calories!
If you’re one of those people who think water is boring, then add some citrus, cucumber etc..
Once you stop drinking soda/pop for good you won’t crave it anymore.. And stay away from the light/diet stuff.. We don’t need anymore crappy chemicals in our diet!
I have so many amazing followers and I get a lot of supportive messages, kind words and fitness related questions.
