Post Whole 30 Blood work - cholesterol trending...
Post Whole30 update: Got my bloodwork back. Here’s the 18 mo trend: 01/2011-01/2012-07/2012 Total CHO: 245-239-203 Triglycerides: 233-112-80 Stoked about that. On another note: Grains and legumes messed me up. Dairy was fine. I’ll be limiting grains and legumes indefinitely. I’ll try doing just oats, rice, and quinoa to see if it’s maybe some gluten intolerance.

Reintroduction of grains - Post Whole 30
One day on grains and my knee is tight, where it hasn’t been all month. How’s that for a reason to cut grains for good?
Reintroduction of dairy - post Whole 30
I welcome advice or thoughts here - So I reintroduced dairy the other day. Here’s the rundown - keep in mind, some of this stuff maybe circumstantial: - A little bit of periodic, mild gut discomfort - Some poor sleep (likely from caffeine the first night, but subsequent nights haven’t been great either) - No energy change as far as I can tell - No mood changes as far as I can...

Then just before workout I had BCAA’s, creatine, and some caffeine. *RAMP (got this one from Gray Cook):...
Bicep curls and the treadmill
If you’re still doing bicep curls OR running on a treadmill for 20+ min on a regular basis (or maybe ever :)), you really need to pickup a good fitness book. Here are some recommendations: - The New Rules of Lifting for Life by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove - Maximum Strength by Eric Cressey - Warrior Cardio by Martin Rooney - Power Training by Robert Dos Remedios - Enter the...
The Whole 30 Journal - Day 25
This week I’ve noticed a trend that I have to put the kibosh on…losing my interest in veg. It’s been a bit of a rut for a few days. What I had on hand just wasn’t all that appealing. Roasting them was going to take a bit too much effort. Some ideas: change cuisines - think Mexican, Greek, or Asian (stir fry or sautee) build more salads pre-cut some veg Uhhh,...
Perform Better Chicago
I will come home from Perform Better next week with a 20KG Kettlebell and a 70# sandbag no matter what it takes to lug them home to Salt Lake.

Trained this morning. One of the things Melissa asked me to watch for was declining strength. So I worked up to heavy deadlift since I have a good benchmark weight there. Answer: a little decline. Not huge, but just noticeable. Sounds like Jordan needs some more protein/fats. Lucky me.
