My first Occam's Workout!
This was my first day of Occam's.
The diet was fine. Normal SCD. I only added sphagetti to one of my meals today, will add to a second lunch tomorrow also. (maybe integral, I'll think about it)
Anyway, here I was in the gym, determining the weights... And just when that 1 minute to increase my weight passes, some bald buffed guy comes along and says: JUST ONE QUICKY, OKAY? Right... like I could say NO to that mass. So, I think I managed okay afterall...
Determined my weights, it turned out I gotta do 80lbs at 5/5 cadence at the first A workout (close grip supinated pull). I did 10 of them! After that, I got off that thing and dropped dead. I was literally lying on the floor like a dead cat.
I didnt exercise for 3 months, and I must say I've never had such an intense exercise in my whole life. Wow... my muscles started screaming at the 7th rep, but I did 3 more (that's 30 seconds more).
Anyway... second exercise went much easier, I've no clue why though... but I'm sure I added the correct weight because i was struggling to complete that last (7th) rep.
Will see how it goes next time

Hi zannix, quick update on my progress!
I have added starch (quinoa) to my meals on the day of the gym AND the day after, but my weight is still not going up as quickly as i'd like.
I think, if I have not gained this week, i'll eat quinoa every day at each meal.
On the bright side, my definition is improving all the while so i'm *hoping* that my little weight gain means i'm burning some fat as well (i'm rigidly sticking to SCD while doing occam's , no cheat or moderation foods except for a half cheat day with damage control every 8-10 days).
Also going to start PAGG for one month in about 2 weeks, cannot wait. Had to get them all separately because of the cost
Good luck with occam's!
