M1A - Day 5
Weight - 178.4 - up a couple lbs.. We'll see. I use the same digital scale in the mornings when I wake up after using the bathroom, but I just don't know yet.. Lol, I'm a skeptic. I'll continue to weigh in every few days to see where I'm at.
This morning's workout was freaking crazy! I don't know if it's finally kicked in & I'm all Alpha'd out, or if just having the gym to myself this morning motivated me that much.. I do know something's going on, due to the pr I hit this morning. Felt great! It's funny, my shoulders will grow before they'll get stronger! I finished my routine this morning w/ time to spare, so I hit db shrugs again. (2nd time this week). Traps are filling out nicely as well. I worked my way up to the 85's for a strict set of 8. That's one thing I just never did, was sacrifice form for the weight.
So, now, 5 days into it, here's a few things I've noticed. So far, the libido is still slightly elevated. Will it eventually plummet? Time will tell.. Today's the first day I noticed the strength increase. That alone is giving me more of that Alpha feeling. The pump I had this morning was very full all the way around. Even more forearms were tight. Energy throughout the day is unchanged. Nothing extra, and no lethargy. I noticed last night that I felt tighter and looked in the mirror & noticed a little bit more vascularity in the forearms. Appetite is still about the same. I'm trying to eat as much as possible and I'm easily pushing almost 2 gallons of water a day.
Tomorrow is leg day. I'll be pushing more volume than weight. I'll see if I need to increase the weight to push myself a little harder. I normally try to get 4-5 sets of 25 on the squats, so that alone keeps the weight a little lower. I do know that I'm already looking forward to getting back in there!!
So far, so good on this ride..
