Bodybuilding with bodyweight

Now let’s get this ball rolling again.
I have been working my ass off.
Getting my business started and taking care of a two year old.
Not complaining, mind you I would not have it any other way.
My main focus was to build a solid client base, which I now have.

I was getting tired of people saying “wow you’re much stronger than you look”.

I decided that now was time to change that.
To get the results I wanted I increased the body building factor
of my body weight workouts and diet.
Just doing longer reps (time under tension) isolation sets and higher volume.
Has in 6 weeks helped me gain 10 lbs and given me a glimpse of the six pack.

Training this way is new to me, I have always been chasing
strength and performance, not aesthetics.)
It’s still keeping me strong though.
It’s weird for me because I have always been chasing strength and performance and not aesthetics.

After Getting some expert advice, I tweaked my diet in a bodybuilding direction.
Timing my carbs and protein and also counting my calories.
I hate doing that but it works.
Here’s a breakdown of my day.

My day starts at 6am with 1L of water, coffee and coconut oil.
Breakfast at 8am.

Breakfast: 5 eggs, yolk and all, 1 link lean turkey sausage, 1/4 cup oats, 1 cup spinach.
Lunch: 6-8oz chicken breast or steak w/mixed veggies and 1/2 cup sweet potato.
Dinner: 6oz baked cod or salmon with cup of broccoli and asparagus.

Snacks and post workout add-ons: low sodium grass fed beef jerky, homemade protein bar (thick whey protein paste and crushed almonds, cashews and dried fruit kneaded in, yummy).
Drinking at least 6l of water through out the day.

Not a fun diet so am grateful for my Saturday cheat meals.

In my opinion it´s a lot easier sticking to the workout schedule than it is to stay true to the diet.
But it´s only for a short period of time and the results will be worth it.
Two more weeks and then I´ll readjust the parameters.

Two more weeks and then I adjust the parameters.

Going to post my workouts and pics soon so stay tuned.

Train for life.
