So I've been on my new training program now since just after Thanksgiving and it has been going spendidly!!! I have been hitting new PR's with every. single. workout! I may have trained more (more sets/reps/exercises) and with longer sessions in the past but I have never trained with this much intensity before. As some of you are aware, intense training like this is very taxing on both the body and central nervous system. I started "feeling it" late last week so I'm now deloading for several days to fully recouperate. So far I've just done a little cardio. I could go back in the gym and do a "light" workout (50% of my max) but I don't know if I can trust myself to do that. I'm too hard core. I'll get in the weight room and unleash the beast whether I want to or not! LOL However for those of you who have been hitting the iron... please be aware that recovery is just as important as training. Those muscle fibers are torn down in the weight room but built back up during your "rest time." If you aren't recovering properly you will not make progress and reach your goals!
Oh yeah... I promised pictures. :D
