    Meltdown Training Log

    Hey all, Someone suggested that I should keep a training log and I need something to keep me motivated to stick through the Meltdown Training. It is a very intense program so I can use all the support I can get. I have been cutting for 4 weeks now and brought my waist down from a 31.5 to a 28 and my weight has gone from 152 to 141. Only problem is my arms went down an entire inch (14 down to 13). Not happy about that. I was following the mutation series with slow cardio 4 times a week for 35 minutes. So I read about meltdown training and I want to preserve as much muscle as I can. Anyway, I did my first workout today and it was probably one of the hardest workouts Ive ever done:

    Chin-ups- no weight
    Front Squats- 95
    Push Ups- no weight
    Deadlifts- 170

    All in a circuit, you do 10 reps per exercise all in a row, after deadlift rest 2 minutes and repeat. You do it through 3 times

    After that I did weighted Ab Pulley Crunches followed by Reverse Crunches.

    It doesnt sound like much but let me tell you it is intense. My next workout is tomorrow Ill let you all know how it went.

    Hey man thanks for the interest, right now Im basically eating 5 times per day with almost all of my meals focused on protein. Protein bars, eggs, steak chicken, stuff like that, usually for breakfast I will have some oatmeal because I dont have that much time to cook eggs. So thats really the only meal thats not focused on protein. As far as calories I am just eating 12 times my bodyweight every day so right now around 1700 a day. After school is out Im going to be landscaping so I will probably bump them up a bit being outside all day building patios, decks, and stuff like that. Yeah the arms going down sucks, but once I get past a certain body fat it will look like they are actually getting bigger.

    Good luck with your training too, I can see your making great progress as well,

    Nate R.

    I also forgot to add that on my off day I am doing forearm training and I play soccer 3 days a week, aslo I am going to start something along the lines of Tabata that my brother started where you hit the bag for 20 seconds then rest for 10 second and repeat for 8 times.
