Last night’s planned weekly cheat meal was very good, but I sure don’t pine for junk food when I’m bulking the same way as I do when I’m cutting. Last night I simply was not craving pizza like I normally do. When I’m cutting down I usually count the days to my weekly cheat meal. I guess it stands to reason because when I’m bulking my diet is more varied and I’m eating a lot more carbs, which I tend to crave (like most people!)

So last night’s workout was the second biceps/triceps superset workout of my 2006 bulk. What a tough workout! I knew I had to improve on all my sets, and because last week’s workout was so good I was very nervous-excited in the hour leading up to my workout. I’m very happy with my performance – I went up in weight and/or reps on every exercise, including a personal best on working sets for standing DB extensions. I know I could handle even more weight on the DB extensions next week, but I felt like my shoulders were going to rip out of my body getting the dumbbell up over my head and getting it back to the other side when each set was over. A partner would be very good for this exercise at the weights I’m using. I’ll just do burnout reps next week and use it as a finishing exercise, and the following week I’ll be changing my exercises.

Speaking of my shoulders, they have been holding up quite well to the rigors of my bulking workouts thus far. This is a huge relief for me. I have a feeling that this year’s bulk is going to be my best yet, so the thought of being sidelined by injury is nearly unbearable.

I’ve got to get in the shower and get going – haircut early this morning. Oh, and tonight is leg night! evil
