Training to be a Kickass Shield Maiden

Main Quest: Fat Loss

 

 

 

The Plan:

 

Training:

Upper/Lower split 4 days a week

 

Cardio:

4 sessions a week (at this point)

 

Nutrition:

 

Protein 155

Carbs 180

Fat 50

 

Refeed once a week:

Protein 155

Carbs 260

Fat 50

 

 

 

 

So last challenge didn't go so well, I kept thinking I would get back on track but I didn't. I realized I need to take control in any way I can or another 6 months will go by with me struggling to get a handle on my schedule. I have also realized that I am mentally weak. I need to be focused on my goals, and have a positive, solution based outlook. I feel I am quite negative and have developed some mental habits that are completely unproductive and harmful, just the way I think and react to things. Also pretty sick of setting the same goals, doing well for a while and then ending up right where I started, this goes back to the mental thing.

 

Mental:

I have started reading again, currently I am reading a book called Flow

I am taking the time daily to get my mind in the right place, watching videos, reading, lectures etc. I have a very ''goldfish'' memory and have trouble staying focused on something unless It is in front of me everyday.

 

 

 

Grading System:

Weight Training-  25 per day. Goal for the week: 100

Cardio- 25 per session. Goal for the week: 100

Nutrition- 14.2 per day. Goal for the week: 100

 

Week 1: Weight Training-,  Cardio- , Nutrition-

 

Week 2: Weight Training- ,  Cardio-  , Nutrition-

 

Week 3: Weight Training- ,  Cardio-  , Nutrition-

 

Week: 4 Weight Training- ,  Cardio- , Nutrition-

 

Week: 5 Weight Training-  ,  Cardio-  , Nutrition-

 

Week: 6 Weight Training- ,  Cardio- , Nutrition-

Hi Tearose!

 

 

Yeah, another Shield-Maiden! Woot! ^_^ Well according to my current challenge I am not really a Shield-Maiden yet but I am sure at the end of this challenge I will be. :)

 

Seems like from you I can get great ideas for how to set up my own workout plan *_*

Knowing that just to well. It's scary how powerful the mind is. Awesome that you are ready to switch the thought pattern to a better one! :D

 

 

Best of luck for your quests! :)

I have Csikszentmihalyi's Flow and have tried to read it twice, but got bogged down in the middle and moved on to something else.

 

I appreciate your "goldfish" comment -- it is easy to read a wikipedia summary and consider it almost as good as reading the whole thing.

 

Since you are reading it, I will too.

Hi Erick! I have just started it. I find that when I am reading something as soon as it starts to get really good, I go get on facebook. :/ Its like my brain can't handle the awesomeness I am about to read, or maybe it just doesn't want to think. lol

 

I just made a big post and my firefox crashed.

 

Anyway. I love these videos by IFPA Pro Bodybuilder Ryan Doris.

I am finishing my coffee and getting ready to head to the gym. I have been thinking a lot lately. I turned 44 on Halloween and getting another year older kind of made me reflect on my life thus far. Anyway I am not getting any younger and there will never be an easier time then now. So here is my long term goal in 2 parts.

 

1. To get in the best shape of my life and have a professional photo shoot done for my birthday next year. (Oct 31, 2015) I already know the photographer I want to shoot with. I will put a down payment on a shoot with him that is non -refundable.

 

2. Compete in a figure competition in early 2016.

 

To accomplish these goals I just started working with a prep coach.

 

:)

It's so impressive what you achieve in your workouts. I'm aiming to be able to write such awesome stuff some day also in here. I'd be sooo proud :D

 

What do you eat to get such great P/C/F stats if I may ask? 

 

I worked up to it over MANY years. Be proud of the work you do each day!

 

 

 

My meals vary from day to day, I use myfitnesspal to track everything, If I see a recipe I like I will change the macros to fit mine.  Its the usual stuff though, lean proteins, veggies, healthy fats, and that.

 

 

Everything I do at this point is according to my coaches plan.

 

 

 

 

So you are doing the 27.5k as kind of warm up? 60k sounds so extremely heavy to me..  :nightmare:

Good catch! I mis typed that! I WISH I could row that much! :D I fixed it ;)

Todays workout was quite difficult, it only took an hour but it felt like FOREVER and I felt weak too. I had to pep talk myself all the way through it. Ugh I hate doing cable pull throughs in public.

 

Squats- These sucked plain and simple, my form was off, and I had to lower the weight quite a bit

8@17.5k

3 sets of 8@12.5 I wanted the 15k but someone else had it and turns out the 12.5 was good.

 

Leg press 15@80k

3x15@100k

 

Leg extensions

13@26k

15@26k

14@26k

11@26k

 

Stationary lunges- These were ridiculously hard.

3x10 bodyweight

 

Stiff legged deadlifts- sumo

3x10@30k

 

Lying leg curls

3x12@15k

 

Cable Pull Throughs

3x10@11.25k

 

BB hip thrusts

3x12@30k

 

Standing Calf Raises

3x15@18k

 

Full body crunch 20,20,15

 

Glad its done!
