10/3 – GreenStrengthIV Training Log

What a great day! Started around the time the sun was still over an hour away from showing us how bright it is. Everyone who was in at 6am did a great job, worked hard and definitely got 1% better in something. Then Mobile Mighty Greg and I played with iron and worked on skills. I followed that session up with a smash session in the afternoon. Body is starting to really feel good despite the volume I’ve thrown at it these last few weeks. This is due no doubt to my increase in calories. I reached out to a fellow coach and buddy of mine Dan Allison for some nutrition guidelines. We all need coaching and I really needed to hear someone tell me what I already knew I should be doing, yet my mind kept me from doing it. I’ve applied his advice all while still destroying a GIANT GREENSTRENGTH MEAL every night. Weight is up, recovery is much better, sleep has improved – winning situation!

9/28 – GreenStrengthIV Training Log

Im currently 2 weeks into a 4 week plan. This plan was to attack some volume as well as add some bodyweight. My body is/was in need of turning a blind eye towards some of the things I’ve been experimenting with over the last year or so. That said I am 10 days in and up 11.2lbs so far. I don’t expect the gain in weight to keep coming on as it did the first week. Things are stabilizing out a bit – but recovery and energy are much better. So far all is going good.
