Week 3.

More sets, and now going 2/fail.

I’m enjoying the 2/fail part – but the moar sets? Man, I’m at the gym for 2 hours now. Not the worst thing in the world (great place to be), but geez this is quite the session. And I reckon next week will be even more sets! Curious how mesocycle 2 will be, since that’s with a metabolite focus, so intraset rest is 30-90 seconds – I’ll aim for 60 and keep moving.

Anyways, thigs continue to progress well. Volume is of course increasing. I’m not sore when I start the next session, so volume can continue to increase. I am getting more reps, more everything. So hey, here’s hoping this is good.

One thing that’s not going well? Weight loss. I’m 249-250 depending how I stand on the scale. 😉 Now granted, I’ve basically been on Base 1 so it’s to be expected, but I was hoping for a clean 249 this morning. This will be first week fully on Cut 1, I guess I’ll deal with it — but if I’m not clearly and firmly in the 240’s by next week, I’m going to be irritated. That all said, I know bodyweight is only 1 measure — when I look in the mirror, when I feel how clothing fits, for sure there’s small improvement. So, just gotta trust the process. Who knows — I may wind up only dropping 1 lb./week instead of the 2/week I want.
