Update to my intro post:
This is was supposed to be
A log of my experience working out on a 5/2 split while on the Anabolic diet. I want to mix metcons/gpp-drills with ME days and some gymnastic moves, but most of all I want to have fun working out.
However. I ended up joining an Olympic lifting club and am building my training around my workouts there instead. As soon as I feel I have adapted to this training I may start adding in some lunch-break metcons again. For now, I have oly lifting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. I do some Planche and Front Lever work a few hours before that. At the club I do what the coaches tell me but it goes something like this:
C&J or Snatch day:
1 – 2 limited rom drills with lighter weight (hang variations etc), something like 5 sets with low reps
5 sets (some times more), low reps of the full lift
3-5 sets of the lifts shrug variation
Then 5 sets, 3-5 reps of front/back squats
I don’t worry about weight/rest. I rest until they tell me to lift and add weight when they tell me to add weight. I write down what I remember when I get home.
After that it’s kind of free for all but they do want me to work lower back and abs. Pull-ups and dips seem to make them happy also witch is fine with me .Stuff not in my log
Water: 2-4 litres a day.
Coffee: 1-2 cups of black coffee a day.
Supplements: I use a quality vitamin & mineral supplement and a teaspoon of creatine monohydrate from time to time as a pick-me-up.
Warm-up: I like jump rope, mobility drills, Crossfit type warm-ups or just using the lift I’m about to perform with light weights.
