The Barbelle Club caught up with Kelly for a bro session at Stronger Athletics this last week.
Between curls, we talked...
What's happening Kelly?
I'm hungry...I've been tracking my calories loosely for the last 18 months. Previously I've trained on a diet of around 1500-1600 calories which is not really enough to sustain my current goals. As part of my preparation for competition, I've begun "reverse dieting". The goal is to increase my calories incrementally without gaining body fat. I'm at about 1700 currently and hungry...We're heading to 2500 (which I'm really looking forward to). I feel like I need a re-feed day about once a week. This goes off my energy levels. I can get dizzy.
I've really noticed that if I concentrate on the quality of my macro sources, it impacts the consistency energy levels. If I get my carbs from sweet potato, they're steadier than if they're from Easter eggs ;)
Today you've been doing some stiff leg deads, some weighted lunges, wide grip pull ups and some other things...In terms of training, are you missing doing any particular excersize or movement so far on this program?
I miss hand balancing and the gymnastics strength movements...and extra glute work...
Thanks Kelly x
