Thanks for dropping by and welcome to my May Recap! As you may already have read in my April Recap, I finally got in a healthstate that allows me to go back to work. I still have to use crunches from time to time, but I'm improving slowly but steady! I wanned to go back to work as soon as possible because I'm leaving the company in the end of july, and therefor I have to show the person that will replace me how my job is done. As I love the company and all it's employers it's very important to me to leave in good and without cutting any holes in the daily business. I went back to work fulltime instantly and therefor I had plenty of problems to deal with, mainly cause of my injury. I felt so empty and powerless every single evening at beginning of the month. That lead to the decision to stick to a single table during all May. I often times all together prefered to just open up a coaching video than to grind it out with a very low energy level. As I'm back to taking bodybuilding (every day is upper day for now) seriously and having physio therapy 2-3 times a week, that also cut back some hours from poker. Also applying for new jobs and renovating the new + old flat still takes up alot of time, aswell. I have notified my stable that I won't have as much time for poker as I had in the past at least until August.
I'm trying to make the best out of the situation. I'll try to put in as much time in poker as possible! All this impacted my Volume in May alot already, but I feel like it was still a decent month. Enough of the excuses! If you are not here for the cute ferret pics here comes what should be of interest for you, geek!

My grind will continue 4th June. As I am absent from the tables until then, I will play 1 table to get the feel of grinding again, and after that I plan on grinding 2 tables for the rest of the month so I can reach a decent volume by the end of next month.
No-Carb-Diets aren't doing to great for the health of my girlfriend and we are to lazy to make 2 different meals every single day after work + grind + physio + gym. I decided to change my diet to Carbbackloading. This basicly means only carb intake after a heavy workout in the evenings. Like this we only have to eat different stuff every other day as I am working out 3-4 times per week.
Own Variation of German Volume Training
As I am only having a very basic homegym at the moment I can't use too heavy weights. (this will change in the new flat again) To still get in a decent workout supplemented by my diet I came up with my own variation of German Volume Training. This training plan should get me back into shape rather sooner than later.
