Starting week 2 of the metabolite mesocycle. And well… it feels odd.

When I’m in there doing the work, it’s pretty difficult. You push hard, you don’t rest much, and it sure gets tiring. I mean, the weights look silly on that superset of the skullcrushers and DB bench, but when you do set after set of it? Oye! However, shortly after all that work is done, it doesn’t feel like I did a ton of work. I just don’t “feel it”. It feels like “did I actually work today? Did I get enough work?” Maybe I did, maybe I didn’t. I don’t know — it’s part of learning this approach.

I do feel like this session went better than last week, but that’s because things are more dialed in in terms of weights and what I’m doing. While I originally didn’t rate the prior session at “1”, I went ahead and modified that this morning and did up the sets today. I’m feeling good and figure it’s good to just keep upping the volume right now to try to get the most of out this.

It’s still 3/fail this time, and I think I held better to that this time, but I really do want to push it. 🙂 Still 1-minute interset rest too.

One side thing I’m trying to work on is ensuring I crush-grip all the things. This seems to take stress off my elbows, which is a good thing. Plus my grip will be happier too.

On the weight-loss front, weighed in at 243 this morning. So that’s down 9 lb in 6 weeks. I’ll take it.
