The PR bell was ringing non-STOP today! So many incredible athletes putting up some outstanding numbers! Another chance to test out how I can perform while maintaining the Wahls Paleo Plus diet, and how my body recovers as well. I went into this not really setting a whole lot of expectations for myself but with hopes to succeeded with my back squat and possibly my deadlift. Back squat was a victory for sure! 20lb/10% PR! WOOT! Then deadlift the wheels fell off. I couldn’t even get my previous PR off the ground. Ah well… matched my previous PRs for snatch and clean and jerk (C&J I PR’d earlier this week) and PR’d my bench. Good day! Also worked on my double unders which rounded out a fun 3 hour morning at the box. That was followed by a whole LOT of hungry! I mean, my supertotal was 880lbs! 😀

Speaking of Wahls Protocol, I’m wrapping up my 2nd week today. I don’t really have a whole lot to report except that my mood and energy have been a lot better. I had a rough week last week with the nerve pain, but my new found double unders addiction probably had a lot to do with that. I worked out a lot too and was muscle sore, but I think proportionately so (no better/no worse) and my strength didn’t falter at ALL with the lower protein intake. Long story short, this will be all about progress. I’m still figuring out how to build a routine with this. Some things I feel I’m doing really well with while others I wonder if I’m missing the whole point. I kinda had hopes that I would start to shed a little weight or an inch or two by now, but it’s the opposite. My clothes are tighter I think and the scale hasn’t budged. Arg. But I’ll get there! Making beef heart chili today. 😮 Can’t be worse than liver!
