Not too bad.

Starting my 2nd week of the “prep & fat loss” program. I knew today wouldn’t be all that hard, given press day. But was it so much easier because it’s a “5 week” so everything’s as light as it can be? because my body is starting to adapt? Don’t know. The real trick will be seeing how next week goes. 🙂

One thing I’m thinking about doing on my pressing days is reducing my inter-set rest periods, to bump up the work. I’m not sure I want to, because I don’t want to impact recovery, especially in light of caloric restriction. We’ll see.

Speaking of, I’m a little frustrated that my bodyweight is hard to determine right now. Am I fluxuating because of water and other such things? Or am I starting to lose a little? Of course it’s only been 1 week so I shouldn’t expect too much, and I’m likely working at a slower rate than past times I went hardcore with Renaissance Periodization. So I need to be patient, but on the same token I don’t want to wait 3 weeks to start to see results because if I haven’t, then that was 3 weeks wasted. I’m just going to have faith and stick with it tho. Because if I’m hungry — which I am — that’s generally a good sign.
