Oh man… haven’t felt that “good” in ages.

And by “good” I mean, almost throwing up. 😉

No, I don’t like working out to the point of puking: I don’t see how that’s a positive thing nor what it accomplishes. But sometimes it happens. All through the split squats, I just got more and more nauseous, so I pushed but not too hard because no, I have no desire to throw up.

But it all started with the squats.

I used last week as a deload, lifting lightly and trying to take as much rest/sleep/naps as possible. I feel a lot better. Not out of the woods, but better for sure. And so I continued ignoring how many reps and told myself to just keep going until I can’t go any more — don’t sow any mental limits. 14 reps came pretty easily. Felt good. But then the 7 after started the toll-taking.

And 15 reps of the stiff-legs. I swear, this was the first time I really felt it in my hamstrings and glutes. I truly was burning. It was pretty cool to finally feel that back there from this movement. But yeah, the toll was being taken. And so split squats? Oh… I just did what I could. 🙂

All in all tho, good session. More reps came out, and I just generally feel alright. Weight bloated up over the end of last week, between less work and enjoying myself some over the holiday. But I’m back down to 222 this morning, so I’m in pretty good shape. In discussions with Nick I’m going to work to hold steady now, and come August we’ll start the cut again. I have mixed emotions — I don’t want to go back on the restrictive diet, but I really do want to achieve my goal in the Defattening Project. So, onwards.
