Having the weekends off from training sure does the trick when it comes to allowing my body to fully recover from that week’s workouts. On Friday I felt awesome, but my body was very sore and definitely ready for a couple days off from training. This morning I’m 100% recovered, and very eager to get back in the gym this afternoon (I’m working legs today).

Last week I deviated from my training plan and did a second consecutive “intensity” week. The “intensity” workouts are definitely more challenging to me compared to the “core” workouts, and there’s also four days of training per week compared to just three days of training during the “core” weeks. I’ve been giving it some thought, and have decided to continue with the “intensity” workouts indefinitely. Why? Well, right now I feel like I need to keep the pedal to the metal, so to speak. My strength is increasing, I’ve had some good early results on the tape measure and I’ve been enjoying my workouts a great deal. Like just about everyone reading this I train in order to get results, but I also train because I enjoy it. When I’m doing the “intensity” workouts I’m breathing hard, sweating like crazy and my muscles are pumped and screaming in pain; when I walk out of the gym after one of those workouts, the feeling is incomparable. Everything in my mind and body is telling me that that is the kind of workout I need right now, and so that’s what I’m going to do until I feel otherwise.

The November “100 Challenge” is now open for entry! I encourage those of you who are ready to commit to a plan to take part. Details are immediately below…
