1 month done of Split Training

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Ok I have completed a full month of split training and I can feel the difference although the weight is not moving yet it is not going up. My inches are going down and I am getting this routine down pat. I really like my leg routine. I pretty much do leg press sled machine or seated, leg curls , adductor and abductor leg extension then I throw in something different on the 2nd day of legs, usually squats and lunges. I feel the burn and I feel my body getting strong. I am increasing the weight and it is working.

Next, I am still tweaking the other body part workouts. My core/abs are a challenge but I am determined not to let that get me. What I don't like about core work is getting on the floor, I have bad knees and rotator cuff issues so I shy away from doing it. But now I discovered some assisted crunches with the V-bar on a high pulley and I like that, just need to find other ones as well to hit the Abs and get that light burn that I am feeling in the legs.

As far as the food, I think I have the balance of nutrients sync for my pre-diabetic state where I am eating lower carbs but enough to have energy for working out the next day and the protein to repair my muscles I am just having a hard time eating in the range I have selected of 1523 to 1744 for me. I am eating above 1200 but not quite making it to my min. or in between, I am simply not hungry enough. I guess I will have to see if this is enough for me to drop the weight and still maintain. In time we will see, I just hope that I can start seeing the scale go down with the inches.

Well onto another month of split training to get to the new me.
