It’s been a while since I posted a Sunday lifting thread, mostly due to the present circumstances. I have been lifting throughout this period but it has been a bit up and down, like my moods. But it’s critical to keep working at the iron no matter what your circumstances. The iron gives you strength, not just physically but mentally as well.
In addition to the iron I am doing my best to make sure that I eat properly. This means that Sunday afternoon is my big cooking day of the week. Typically a roast chicken for lunch which I will then turn the leftovers into stock and then use that to make a soup and a stew which go into the fridge and serve my hunger needs during the week when I am a little tired or lacking motivation to cook properly.
A good diet high in protein and fat and low in carbs is really important for you in a general health sense, but if you’re lifting serious weights 3 or more times a week then you also need a big replenishment so as to not suffer muscle atrophy.
