Recovery Day

No workout today. Just some streching and used the foam roller.

Breakfast:

4 organic free-run eggs (reminds me of an old Saturday Night Live skit) with onions, mushrooms, & spinach, 2 pieces flax bread toast, 1 orange, 1/2 grapefruit. Green tea. Also had an apple before I walked the dog.

Substitute exercises Q'n'A" from www.TTmembers.com  

Hi Craig: Just did the first workout of 2K9 this morning, nearly felt sick after the kettlebells and running in place, phew that was a tough workout and with the rest periods shorter, that really challenged me, really enjoyed it though, sucker for punishment!!!

I want to have a go at both TT for Jacked and Lean Meatheads and Reformed Meatheads next, they are ok for women to do aren't they?

I just need some sub exercises if you can give me an idea of what to do please as I do all my workouts at home TT for Jacked and Lean Meatheads Workout A for Chin Ups and Dips I was going to do inverted rows instead of chin ups but they are already in the first superset. I do have barbells, lat pulldown, dumbbells so just wondering what you suggest instead and also for dips.

In Reformed Meatheads it is for Workout A and sub for Pull ups and dips.

Answer:
Hi! Yes, women can be meatheads too.

To replace chinups, use "Kneeling Reverse (Underhand) Grip Pulldowns" or Seated Reverse Grip Pulldowns.

For dips, you can do any triceps pressdown or lying ez-bar (or dumbbell) triceps extensions.

To replace pullups, you can use overhand grip pulldowns.

Thanks!

Motivation of the day:

"To live an extraordinary life you must resist an ordinary approach" - Frank McKinney.

For fat loss, this means NOT doing the same things as everyone else in the office (i.e. bringing in donuts, eating fast food, going to bed late and running late in the morning). Instead, you need to plan, shop, and prepare for your meals and stick to a workout schedule - be consistent and you'll achieve extraordinary results.

Man, the going to bed late is something I struggle with. I always end up going to bed late.

My sleep cycle is so off now it's hard for me to actually fall asleep at a reasonable time. (I usually end up actually falling asleep at around 4:00AM but I'm trying to get to sleep around midnight)

Do you have any tips for changing your sleep cycle so you can actually sleep at reasonable times?
