Day 1 of SHOW PREP – 3/31/2014

Today marked DAY 1 of my 2014 Show PREP!!  I am really excited to get into my ZONE and get SHREDDED.  I’ve worked really hard and am eager to see the results. I think I must have done 1,200 squats (at least) since November so these legs better show it.  I am thinking back to the sets of 20 reps at 185#, 10 reps on the minute for 10 minutes of back squats, then front squats, heavy singles, heavy doubles, etc.  Lots of squats! Plus lots of pressing, pulling and deadlifts.

As I’ve stated in previous posts, my training does not change.  We try to maintain strength and volume.  What does change is my nutrition.  So I thought I would share how my first day of food looked. For now my macros are as follows:

6 days of:  150g protein  150g carbs  30g fat

1 refeed day: 150g protein  250g carbs  30g fat
