I’m feeling really good this morning, and have finally fully adjusted to the time change. I slept like a rock last night and woke up at 6:30 AM on the dot. My internal clock is so accurate that I never, ever set an alarm clock. I wake up at 6:30 AM (+/- a minute or two) almost every morning. On the rare occasion that I try to oversleep, the dogs – which are fed at 6:30 AM – are an incredibly reliable backup “alarm”; they do not like to be fed late!
I had no workout last night, but I’m really sore from Tuesday’s back/traps workout. My traps and lats are burning right now! I love that feeling, especially in my lats because the soreness tells me I used good form and hit the right muscles. I remember a long time ago when I’d try and work my lats I’d typically feel more soreness in my biceps than my lats. That’s a very common mistake when it comes to working the lats and the back. The secret is to turn off your ego, lower the weight and focus 100% on the mind-muscle connection. Once you learn to hit the right areas, start increasing the weight and watch your back grow! I discussed lat training and gave some good tips that have really worked for me back on March 8th.
Right now it’s cardio time, and later tonight I’m working my legs – can’t wait!
