Nutrition Goals 2006

OK, before the year really gets going it's time to define a few nutritional goals for 2006. The main ones are : Increase bodyweight to 100kg (currently 84kg). I realize this might be unrealistic for 12 months; especially if the bulk of the extra weight comes in the form of muscle. Finally get rid of this annoying cough I've had off and on for about 8 months. It isn't painful, regular or accompanied by any obvious illness; it's just annoying. Further reduce the amount of time I spend in the kitchen. As much as I love to cook, there just aren't enough hours in the day to spend a lot of time preparing each meal.

The idea of having a few days' rest was certainly a good one - and I've elected to take a complete break (probably until Wednesday) in order to let things recover properly. In the meantime, there's a bit of reading...

Deadlift Routine

Following a reasonably lengthy (well, a few months) period without deadlifting I've decided to dive into the deep end with a routine that puts the deadlift before everything else. As the no-deadlift approach didn't seem to have any positive impact, perhaps this one will.

Still on the Floor

Nice and brief.

Teaching the Chin-Up

Perfect for upper back development.

Next Year

It seems to be the appropriate time of year for goal-setting (usually thinly veiled as New Years' Resolutions). A few of the things I'd like to improve over the next few months : Quality of sleep. I suspect this would...
