This marks week 3 of phase 1. It’s supposed to be that “very light” phase, just getting the body back in the groove. Sure enough, it’s been that. Everything has felt light; in fat, each week feels lighter than the last! I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting in the groove, or my body is really remembering all the cues and minor technique details, especially during setup. But whatever, today felt very light.

There were a couple times when during the singles I did the single, changed the weight, did the next single — no real rest between sets. I mean, the prior rep felt light enough, enough I could have certainly done more than 1 rep… so why not?

All in all, things seem to be on track. Next week begins phase 2. Looking forward to where this takes me.
