i want abs
too much detail of your current stats
lipo is the only way
ab ripper X
i was just kidding
what I would really like to know is why I get tired at 1:30 every single day at work, I eat right, healthy..
it's like a switch goes off when I get back from lunch
wow i get that too!!!!
like the blood is going to my stomach... i wonder... feels like a coma or something
That's why people always serve coffee after lunch/dinner.
diet...and training...abs are nothing more then a bf level and also you do need to train them to get them to pop out.
coma is right
I eat light too, im not chowing down shit
Like today, I had a piece of bread and 1 small piece of chicken
Jesus christ, maybe you're not eating enough?
Na man I sit in a chair all day at work I dont do nothing, after work is when I do my training so I typically just make sure to eat hearty for dinner.
What's that, a piece of chicken and a cup of rice?
Post your fucking diet.
I'm the same way. So I take a nap.
Can I have your job?
Fuck you and your retirement!
Dude I dont even know what it is
ok here's my day
I woke up and came to work, luchroom has oatmeal.. so I put good chunk in a bowl, put some raisans and some brown sugar in it for some taste, I dont know if I could handle it without brown sugar.
Anyway, first 15 minute break I get.. I go get some peaches and some cottage cheese.. I dont eat that much of this, maybe 6 peach slices and a half a cup of cottage cheese.
Lunch I go to the lunchroom, grab a chicken breasts and usually have some chicken noodle soup (I cut the chicken up and have extra chicken noodle soup basically).
Then I have a protien energy bar before jiujitsu after work, then, I go home and have some ramen noodle with some chicken in it or something
yeah I know
Today im going to go activate my anytime fitness membership again and take it easy on jiujitsu for a few weeks and try to work in more running and lifting..
Then in about a month or 2 im going to drop it and go full into crossfit for jiujitsu comps
I took a Psychology class a while back that discussed REM/non-REM sleep cycles and one of the things we talked about is how the average working man/women experiences a "crash" point in the middle of their day. This happens at a time that is dependent upon when you wake up for but for 99% of people it happens between 1-3pm.
I forget exactly why this happens, but I distinctly remember it having nothing to do with diet/exercise, but was just how the body works. If you wait it out, it usually goes away after an hour or so.
The best way to combate this feeling is to take a nap that last anywhere between 20-30min. There is a lot of research happening on this now, and in many countries they now have "nap" time for workers about 1-2 hours after lunch where they nap for 25min. This not only increases productivity, but also increases cardiovascular functions in the employee's leading to less stress and less risk of heart attack/heart disease.
Edit * A few U.S. companies are now adopting this process since it is working out so well in some European countries. Japan has been doing it for a couple years now with some of the bigger corporations that have people working more than 10 hours a day.
If you get an hour lunch at work, try eating quickly (20min) and then get in a 20-25min nap. It might help out more than you think.
I knew I just wasn't lazy. Just took a nap from 4:45 until 5:45.
Hey buddy... I said 20-30min. If you're napping for an hour then you are most certainly lazy!
I slept from 5-7 yesterday evening. And still slept 8 hours last night.
