Hello, this is my first post here at T-Nation. Although this is my first post, I have been browsing and reading this forum for the past month or two. After reading different programs I decided I was going to give the abbh program a try.
Heres the specs:
- 11% Body Fat
- 6 ft. Tall
- LOTS of lifting/eating knowledge (nutrition student).
- Have been lifting on and off for about the past year.
So I have a question about this program. I started it last week. I hadnt really taken into count that I have had some strength gains in the past 2 months so I under estimated my 1RM with benching. I did the first day perfectly, but realised I didnt use enough weight. So I waited 4 days and started it over (I used WAY too little wait the first day).
So when I restarted the program I used the proper weight. It was very difficult. I tried to get a fourth rep on my last set of bench and the bar just came right back down on my chest, needing help to get it back up.
So heres my question: Everytime I have ever lifted, Iv been fairly sore the next couple of days. Now 2 days after doing this program with the proper weight I have NO soreness what so ever. Why is this? In the past I’ve lifted for 5 or 6 weeks straight feeling at least a little bit sore after every workout.
With this I have NO pain at all. I thought I wasnt lifting enough, so as i said, I started over. And that restart day was very difficult and if anything, maybe too much weight was used. So whats going on here? Any ideas?
