So far my waking BG is around 95-100(I am not sure how accurate these things are or whether I need to calibrate it). I did an all day fast Monday and it was 91 by the 23hr mark on the fast. After a fairly healthy wine dinner the BG dropped to the lower 80s, which was interesting. On a recommendation from Dr. Davis(Heart Scan Blog) I tried testing my BG every 20 minutes to get a response curve. I found I peak out at around the hour mark and I have yet to have it go up over 110. Yet to test on a true "cheat", but I will try that later.
After a bit of a break(12 days or so) I did my first HIT workout at Doug's 1 on 1 training in Greenville.
- Tru Squat: Included 3 assisted reps/negatives.
- MedX Leg Abductor:
- MedX Leg Adductor
- MedX Leg Press
- MedX Leg Curl
- MedX Leg Extension
- Wall/Ball Static Hold
- Nautilus Assist Pull Up
- MedX Chest Press: Also did 3-4 negatives/assisted reps.
- MedX Compound Row:
- Push Ups: Negative only. Pushed up myself on 5 then struggled to get up with my elbows.
- Negative Pull Ups: 8, 12 second negatives
I did my BG before and after the workout, which was interesting. Waking: 99. 30 minutes before the workout 105. 5 minutes after the workout: 110. It went up, which I believe makes sense. I always experience some stress knowing what's coming and I think that is cortisol related. As for the workout it is not a surprise that glucose spilled into the blood in response to the heavy training. Reporting more on twitter for anyone who is interested.
