Last leg workout before bulk; The popcorn thing.

Friday is here at last! Today will be my last leg workout before my bulk starts. Once I begin bulking (a week from Monday) my leg day moves from from Friday to Monday, so toasting my legs next Friday would not be too smart. So, next week I’m going to do my back and chest workouts as normal (Monday and Wednesday), and then I’m going to take the next 4 days off from training so that I’m fresh and rested for my first bulk workout. Again, if you missed it check Monday’s update for my complete bulking food log and detailed discussion, and read Tuesday’s update for all the training information (including sample workouts).

I was talking yesterday about all the fresh food Lisa will need to purchase each week while I’m bulking. She goes shopping every Saturday morning, so I think I’m going to start eating my bulking diet a day early (next Sunday). I figure it’s not a bad idea to fill up the tank before I start my journey, and I’ll certainly enjoy the food!

I’ve mentioned a few times recently that lately I’ve been indulging in some extra cheat snacks in the form of popcorn. I’m not going to lie: owning a commercial popcorn popper with plenty of real movie theater popcorn (coconut oil, Flavorcol seasoning and the exact same buttery topping used in theaters) on hand is definitely a huge temptation – especially for someone like me, who absolutely loves popcorn. Right now I have no problem allowing myself to relax my diet a bit, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that once my bulk starts the popcorn machine will go dark (unless Lisa wants to use it). Believe me, with all the food I’ll be eating I’m pretty much going to be constantly stuffed anyway. Also, I’m going to be busting my butt in the gym, and there’s no way I’m going to put any substandard foods in my body. I want maximum results for my hard work, and I firmly believe that a clean, healthy diet is critical part of that formula.
