You know, I’m digging this.

First, I’m really digging front squats. Yes it’s awkward, yes I have a ways to go before I’m efficient at the movement, but I’ll only get better by doing it. I’m enjoying it all tho, and I can only hope I’ll see some good benefit over time.

Second, I was still very lower-body sore from Monday, tho finally this morning felt like I could move. 🙂 While on paper these sessions don’t seem like much, they sure leave you feeling worked — tho you have to certainly put in the work and push yourself. So far I’m digging this approach, and I am hoping the slight less volume but slightly more frequent sessions may pan out for me over time. Liking it tho. If nothing else, the change is welcome.

I also think that my body is getting happier with me. It’s been about 10 days of eating more food, having creatine, no caffeine, and it seems to be showing in my performance and generally how I feel. I think 9 months of strict dieting paid off, but I also paid a price for it in terms of some wear and tear on my body. But I am feeling “normal” again, so… here’s hoping.
