2018-01-09 training log

Same feels. A bunch of work, you’re dying at the end of the sets, but shortly thereafter it feels like you didn’t do anything. Of course, I am a little sore today from yesterday’s session (e.g. chest muscles were a little tight), but nothing major. Could it just be this style of training? Could I be hitting the wrong numbers? They are all within the prescribed ranges… but then there’s the considerations I read from Jared Feather that make it seem like some of the prescribed ranges are too high, and that in hitting those ranges you may just be using too light a weight to elicit the proper response. But then, I dunno.

I suspect part may also be that it’s just week 2 and still 3/fail on things (and 1 minute interset rest). I’m trying to stop well-short and leave stuff in the tank, allowing for progression in the coming weeks. So, we’ll see. Gotta be patient here.

I was supposed to do 4 sets on the triceps/shoulder work. Alas, I forgot to adjust things in RepCount before I went to the gym, so I only did 3. I’ll just remedy with 5 next time and keep the progression going.

On bodyweight, I woke up at 242. Huh. Down 2 lb in as many days. Is this proper loss? or maybe effects of being lightly ill (no fever, but my nose is a little runny/stuffy). Not sure yet. But if the loss sticks, I guess I’ll keep it. It may well be also due to the further cutback in caloric intake AND the addition of the cardio (20 minutes elliptical at the end of each session). I hope it’s due to the latter, which would be on point with my plan.
