Going to do some HIIT today; Questions answered.

I took yesterday off from training, and today I’m going to do some cardio for the first time in about a month. I was going to do some LISS cardio this morning, but instead I think I’m going to get my heart rate up and do some HIIT cardio this afternoon. My intensity workouts over the past month kept my heart rate elevated through pretty much the entire workout, so it will be interesting to see how I feel today while I’m doing tough cardio intervals.

I definitely put on some fat over the past month, but I should be able to get rid of it fairly quickly. I’m presently right around 10% body fat, and I’d like to get back down to 8% or so. I expect this will take 4-6 weeks, and will not be too difficult at all.

After yesterday’s announcement some people have asked when I will bulk again, and if I will pick up where I left off and follow the same plan. I can’t answer the first part of that question right now. I will probably wait until late summer or early fall before I go on another all-out bulk. After I move and get settled I may increase my calories slightly and continue to build my strength. I just don’t know right now. As for the second part of the question, the answer is “yes”: I do plan to use the same bulking program and diet that I was following. I think it’s a very solid program, and I see a lot of potential in it.

Most of you have been very supportive of my choice to end this year’s bulk early, but a few of you have expressed disappointment in me. If you visit this web site expecting 100% consistency, zero mistakes and absolute perfection out of me, then I guarantee that you are going to come away disapointed. I’m human, and I’m far from perfect. This web site is, and always has been, a journal of my ongoing fitness journey. I have triumphs and failures just like everyone else on the planet. I do some things right, and other times I make mistakes. When I make a mistake, I try to admit it, learn from it, pick up and move forward. I learned a long time ago that I can’t please everyone; all I can do is stay true to myself and do what I think is best.
