The 5 Pillars of Health: week 8

I have been doing gentle Yoga videos for flexibility over the last 8 weeks. Not every day like I planned, but not far off. It has certainly been enough to notice improvements.

So from next week, I am going to step it up a notch. I am now targeting my Flexibility Goals.

These are:


Full splits

Front splits

Suspension splits aka Van Damme style

I have no clue how to do this, I could have winged it from YouTube videos. However, my hips and my groin flexibility has ALWAYS been the weakest area for me. So I felt I needed a more targeted program to achieve these goals. I am in no rush to achieve them, but I do need to make constant progress. So I bought a little ebook called Hyperbolic Stretching. It could be utter garbage but I am going to follow it and see how I get on. It is designed for getting people to be able to do the splits, so he must know more than me as I have seen him do the splits and I am a long long long way off from being able to do them. So I am going to trust him to get me through this silly challenge! I ll start next week.

You can tell the Christmas season has arrived, more sub-optimal eating than ideal this week. However, I still consumed a lot of healthy protein and fat, just more carbs and booze than is normal. Funny thing is even though I have had what I would class as a bad week, the macro split has still worked out pretty decent. In fact, it was similar to when I was on a normal Ketogenic Diet.

The 7 days worked out at:

3433 calories per day, 10% carbs, 26% protein and 64% fat.

My keto splits were usually around 10% carbs, 20% protein and 70% fat.

Due to social stuff this week, I basically only had 2 days to exercise instead of 6. So I had the choice of my Strength program, my Cardio program or do a mixture of the 2. I obviously chose just to lift haha.
