I’ve decided to change up my weight training method, and I will no longer be doing pyramid sets. A lot of natural body builders (and regular people just like me) have made tremendous gains using something called “MAX-OT”. I’ve been reading a lot about MAX-OT (Maximum Overload Training) and studying the program in detail for awhile now. It really makes a lot of sense to me, so I’m going to give it a go. For more information, check out my training page.

I’m on the third day of the creatine loading period, and the only side effect so far is I felt a little nauseous on the first day. I know the loading period is not required, but I’m a rather impatient guy by nature, so I’d rather load up than wait to see results. 🙂 I’m drinking about 2 gallons of water a day during the loading phase.

My abs still have not fully recovered from Friday’s new ab workout (weighted decline crunches, decline reverse crunches, lying leg lifts and hanging leg raises), so of course I can’t work them today as planned. When I used my old workout of 100 regular crunches and 100 reverse crunches, my abs always recovered in 1 day, or perhaps 2 days at the most. When I woke up this morning and still felt soreness in my abs a full 3 days after my last ab training session, I started cracking up. I guess my new ab workout is pretty effective! They should look really good when I cut up again next spring. So, with today’s ab workout cancelled, it looks like I’ll just be doing 23 minutes of HIIT on the bike. Hope your day is a good one, I’ll see you tomorrow!
