Well After doing only cardio during the weekend and having more carbs in my system made a great difference today..I am feeling good and ready to resume my training today!! I will be training all the way up to the show so lets do it....Today is my highest carb day of the week (350g) so i will try to enjoy my foods as much as i can!!....I went to the store last night just to buy a few things that i want to eat today including strawberries, Popcorn, Blueberries, high fiber Tortillas, Caramel Rice Cakes....OHh i am so ready!...

Yesterday was my last Leg Workout of the week...Now after beating the hell out of them its time to let them rest for the rest of the week.! Feels so good...i love to train legs but once you punish you lower body the way i have been (2x workouts/week + 2 Hiits + 60-80min of cardio/day) the fun part about it is gone and becomes a burden....like a heavy weight difficult to carry. Just to give u an idea...sometimes my wife helps me to walk up the stairs fecause my legs feel soooo tired!....And this bring me to another subject....the myth that says that you cant do cardio with legs because you are going to lose muscle!!! that is just pure Bull#$#T. Trust me!

I try to keep my leg workout short yesterday to avoid too much muscle dammage and inflamation...my legs need to be ready and fresh this saturday. However i think i did a little more than what i was supposed to...
