Goals and Calories

Not been eating right. This week, a general disaster. At 181 lbs, although my workouts have been appropriately tough.

Christian Finn has an interesting calculator to discern how many calories one should eat, including grams of protein, carbs and fats. Apparently, for me to hit my ideal weight, if I work out 4x a week, I should consume 1700 calories, about 155 grams of protein (630 calories), 57 grams of fat (513 calories) and 139 grams of carbs (about 557 calories).

More likely, however, I’ll consume something like this:
1700 calories
175 grams protein (700 calories)
60 grams of fat (540 calories)
115 grams of carbs (460 calories)

Of course, I could just restrict carbs and not count. But today, to end my awful birthday week (actually, it was awesome, just not based on what I ate), I consumed a very small slice of cake. It was still too sweet.

Friday workout:

Squat: 3 x 5 x 225lbs; 1 x 7 x 185
Press: 5 x 95; 3 x 3 x 115
Barbell Row: 3 x 5 x 125
Deadlift: 1 x 5 x 225
Jump Rope: 3 x 1 minute
Tabata Row: 4 minutes

Saturday 40 minute slow run of 3 miles within heart rate.

I have several goals, but my first goal is the following:

Deadlift #375
Squat #300
Press #150

Crossfit Total #825

+ Bench #225

These are ratios to my ideal bodyweight (about #150)
To my current body weight, it goes up to

Deadlift #435
Squat #345
Press #185

Crossfit Total #965

Bench #275

Can I do both? Perhaps If I keep the protein up! And if I get some sleep! I’m still confused about the belief that one cannot do cardio and powerlifting.

    When did you start being such a rockstar?

      We were in a rock band together my friend. Thank you for introducing me to cross fit – among others – and being a source of inspiration.
