Aug 5th 2010, Metabolic Conditioning Workout B
Alright, it has been a few days since my last workout. The last day of my previous training phase I really gave everything I had and during a repetition of KB Presses I must have tensed my back to much as I tweaked something. The next day was August 2nd and Day 1 of the Metabolic Conditioning phase and even though my back felt uncomfortable it didn’t hinder my workout. However, the next day, Aug 3rd and yesterday the 4th I was extremely stiff and with every movement I had a sharp pain in my back. After two days of rest and some yoga practice this morning I was feeling better (or at least that is what I told myself) and I was very eager to get back to the field.
*Please consult with a physician or any other health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises on your own. I will do my best to give progressions and things to be cautious of as necessary. Ideally, everyone should be screened for proper movement before starting an exercise program.

I have already received many messages on facebook about what I eat. I will include a nutrition section each day as well to give everyone a better idea of what works for me. I stress the last part as everyone is different and you really do have to find what your “Personal Alchemy” may be. As of late, I have been doing a lot of research into the different philosophies in Raw Nutrition, however this is a discussion for another time.
Breakfast/Pre workout-I had a Green Smoothie this morning to start the day off consisting of banana, mango, leafy greens, coconut oil and a few other superfoods.
I am finally getting used to the taste of Chlorella, which makes me happy because it is considered “The Ultimate Green Food.” If you are not familiar with Chlorella it is said to be the richest source of chlorophyll (the blood of plants) on the planet. It is also the richest source of DNA and RNA which is essential for cellular growth and repair. You can read more about the many benefits of chlorella here, http://chloressence.com/about-chlorella/benefits.html
Post workout– This is my usual post workout shake.
1 scoop Vega Sport Protein (Vanilla) w/water
2 fresh Medjool dates
1 tbsp Goji berries
1 tbsp Bee pollen

I went with the Beach bowl, grilled red pepper, zucchini, sweet potato, avocado, sun-dried tomato, sunflower sprouts, olive oil, tamari, lemon and mixed herbs. http://www.freshrestaurants.ca/
