TGIF!  Able to add lean protein into the mix which will add some variety and expand my food choice, although I think I,m going to stick w/ beans and just a little chix and fish sparingly.  Luckily I’m one that can eat the same thing over and over.

Firdays consist of a 6:30am workout.  Today I superset :

Hang Clean for 8 w/ Pull ups for 10  (3 sets)

1 arm barbell deadlift using thick gripper 5x each side w/ Inverted shoulder press on total gym for 8-10  (3 sets)

Seated DB curls using grippers w/ Dips w/ knee tucks up/over bar x 12 (3 sets)

Finished w/ a few random ab exercises for good measure and to tone up the midsection that is lean from the purification!

As always followed workout w/ monster fruit smoothie w/ whey protein and cleanse powder.

I must say im pleasantly surprised at how good I feel and the energy I have despite NO caffeine!  Amazing.

Get Strong! Stay Strong!

    How long have you been off caffeine? I use Caffeine in my races, and always try to detox it out for a while before them, usually a month, but lately I have been wondering if 2 weeks would be enough…..

    I have been off caffeine for 19 days now. Sun is my last day of the 21 day purification program I’m doing. I feel great and it has been a good experience.
    Im sure 2 weeks would be fine, but 3-4 weeks may be better due to the increases sensitivity from not using. Maybe try each regiment and see if you notice difference.
    Thanks for checking in. Good luck
