Day 16 of this 35 day journey. 19 Days left
Feeling really good today, I am now at that point of the detox where it is second nature, I have stopped feeling hungry and I feel healthy and positive.
Feeling strong and my leg strength is definitely coming back now, even on a reduced calorie and protein detox.
- 5 mins skipping (jump rope) sprints to warm up – I didn’t want to do too much CV on lg days as I wanted max strength (hard to achieve at the start of a fast).
- Hamstring Curls – 1 giant set of 70 curls on 20 kgs. These are a killer and really have the hams aching and the legs firing on all cylinders
- Knee Extensions – 3 sets of 10 reps at 80 kgs (1 min rest between sets). I decided to do the knee extensions as a means of pre-exhausting the muscles. See this link for further explanation; http://www.musclemag.com/muscle-building/pre-exhaust-your-muscles-to-awaken-new-growth/#.UsxTrPQW2yo
