Things are getting heavy.

So brings an end to week 3 of the cycle. This is where things aren’t quite heavy, but they are starting to.

I’m going mixed grip on the singles from here out.

Really tho, I was surprised today went so well. I was out of town for the past 2.5 days on business, with bad travel, time-zone changes, and not a lot of sleep. My body did NOT want to get out of bed this morning — “MOAR SLEEP!” it cried. But once I got in there and got going, everything went pretty well.

Looking forward to how the last few weeks of this cycle go.

And yes, I’m leaning towards going Base Building after the cycle is done. I hope that will help me cement the work done in this Strong-15 Short Cycle, and start the transition back to rep-work and “bodybuilding” as I finish out this cut/diet cycle. Alas, the business trip may have set me back a little bit — I’ll know better come my weigh-in on Sunday, I’m hoping to at least have maintained weight. But when you have to eat a little and drink a little to be socially polite to your hosts and business partners, well… calories-in don’t care much about your business deals. Ah well, should just be a small bump in the road. For the record, Arcadia Ales is pretty damn awesome (had the Brown Cow… man, that was good).
