finished up the 45 minutes with incline treadmill walking

This was pretty tough today. First lifting session on a low carb day and it ended up having to be broken into 3 pieces because my work schedule was pretty hectic as well. Decided to cut off the bench before going to my heavier set. There's no point in risking injury like that right before competition. My bench sucks right now anyway, what do I have to prove?

Happy that the gym is closed Thursday and Friday actually because it means no work. I know that these extra days off will benefit me in terms of just being able to rest and better recover. Mainly because I'm too stupid to cut back on training clients anyway.

Had one of the trainers that I respect take my bodyfat today using calipers that we plugged into a 7-site Jackson Pollock test. It came out to be 5.95%. I've never been one to really give a shit about the number, but I think it's cool that I'm at 6% or a little under. The funny thing is that at this bodyweight, the difference between 6% and 5% is really like a pound and a half of bodyfat.

I'm really looking forward to the high carb day on Sunday. More than I'm looking forward to New Years. It's funny that I now seem to look forward to days best on my carb rotation more than the fact that they're major holidays.
