Back on and back off

16 Jun

Well as I announced last week, Monday through Friday the last week were a test for me. I was away with work, forced to eat what I was given and with poor training facilities. For those of you who know me, or have read any previous blogs, you will know this is my idea if hell. I won’t complain, it is my job and I do love it, but it has presented a very serious programming challenge.

As of Sunday evening last week, I resigned myself to the fact I was going to have to live on the starchy, sugary foods on offer, but I wasn’t quite prepared for just how bad that would make me feel. All week I felt bloated, lethargic, heavy and even ill; the first time I have felt slightly ill since my health and fitness journey began.

Diet aside, I knew that not training would only compound the issue, so as closely as possible, I stuck to my PPS Nutrition routine and kept training once, twice or even three times a day. Most of my training consisted of metabolic conditioning, bodyweight work, gymnastics and calisthenics. I managed one strength session, but with very limited resources it wasn’t great.

All in all, by the time I returned to camp on Friday evening, I felt awful. Fortunately a little something was waiting to motivate me…

This little red tub contains PPS Nutrition’s new pre-workout fat burner. Along with my normal supplements, I used this for Friday’s and yesterday’s workouts and will use it again today. I have to say, so far, so good. The effects are phenomenal with no come down. As a result, combined with a return to paleo, I have had a very successful weekend of training. Oh and one more thing, I don’t feel ill anymore!

I have two training sessions to fit in today, after this epic one yesterday:

So I feel good again, after only 48 hours of returning to my normal, but here’s the bad news, I have to do it again this week, with NO option to train! Full updates to resume on my return. So for the coming week, I wish you all, especially the FitTrain, all the best with your training in my absence.
