Before I get crucified as a pseudo faster, this is going to be temporary. Breakfast skipping is an energy-boosting ordeal that everyone should get into. Once I start the plunge of a hard shred diet, breakfasts are once again off the menu. But for now, I need to get my calories in, and two meals isn’t enough to bundle in 4000 gloriously clean calories.
The strength block has nose-dived at the very end, so I’m returning to a favourite old haunt, DUP. That thing that I promised to write a blog post explaining, but never actually did. Well, it’s back. Daily Undulating Periodisation will give me the chance of fitting in high rep muscle pumping burnouts, and heavy joint-crunching singles in the same week.
My hopeful plan is to get those extra morning calories towards fuelling recovery and actually let me gain a smidgen of weight.
The mornings where I’ve trialled it haven’t made for spectacular sessions so far, but I’ll continue to chop and change the calories and ingredients to see if I can make it work. If there’s nothing in it for me, I’ll revert back to the happy days of breakfast skipping, with no love lost.
