Yes, more or less. Diet-wise, I won't be following his sample diet, but I will be water loading, sodium loading, carb depleting and carb loading following the protocol mentioned in the article. Further, I will be doing depletion workouts twice a day as outlined, but I will be not be following the samples. I have my own exercises planned. As mentioned in the article, the eccentric-phase can actually impair glycogen uptake. So, in light of this, I will be doing extra eccentric-less tire work as part of my depletion protocol in addition to normal barbell, dumbbell and bodyweight exercises. I personally think this will be even better than the sample workouts.

Got work done outside in the dark and cold with my tire

When Sam-I-Am asks me, "Would you, could you in the dark?"
I reply, "Yes, cutting ain't a walk in the park!"


Push Day #2 - Lunch Break Session

Nothing much to report, day 2 is the easiest day of my spec phase, no PR's or anything like that.
