Beast Mode Workout Day #5

Beast_Mode_by_invasion_force_zps8abfb72aToday is the final day of the strength section of the Beast Mode Workout and the next two days I will be working on cardio before I return to heavy lifting once again on Monday. I was able to once again raise the weight on my routine and am really interested just how far I can take this before I peak out, but at this point I really don’t want to ask too many questions. But I do wonder if I am performing to this level now know that the additional protein in my diet is helping, when I do reach a peak will a little more protein take me to even higher levels? All I want to do is perform to the best of my ability and see where it takes me.

There is only the now, and right now I am once again concentrating on each rep in each set like it is the most important thing in life. I am pushing and pulling heavy weight with the intensity of someone pulling themselves up on a rope while dangling from a tall cliff who is trying to save their life. There is sweat pouring from my forehead and testosterone shooting through my veins. I am a beast, a wild animal out of control who’s strength is unstoppable.

    I think it is awesome that you are combining meditation with physical fitness. My only suggestion would be to add more fruits and veggies to your diet.There is some concern that carnitine may add to heart disease (for which you are at increased risk), so eating more animal-based or artificially produced carnitine protein may be the wrong way to go. Check out and read about the power of the natural antioxidant. And check out this site from athletes: I have been reading about antioxidants for about 15 years, and study after study shows that yes, they are powerful life extenders and disease preventers, and no, you can’t get those positive effects in a pill — you have to eat the fruits and veggies. Regardless of what you decide, keep up the good work, I’m behind (WAY behind 😉 you all the way!

    Every Friday it feels like God has turned up the gravity by about 10 or 15 percent. Everything seems so much heavier at the gym. Oy.

    Sounds like you found SUCCESS and ENJOYMENT from this new style of workout. That’s a winning combination.
    FYI- When weight trainers determine the quantity of dailyprotein intake, they typically find the optimal daily range between 1-1.5 grams per body pound. I thought giving you a reference might be of value. As long as one is not prone to kidney stones or kidney disease this quantity is considered safe. Naturally check with your doctor beford making any adjustments to verify it’s safe and efficacious for you. Wishing you continued success on your journey.
