I just returned from an awesome 5-day Caribbean vacation. Prior to leaving, I trained 6 days in a row, but did not train arms or delts. But in spite of the great vacation, I took no supplements of any kind, got drunk on one day, and missed many normally scheduled meals everyday... not to mention my protein intake was very low.
The day before I came home I got really ill with a bad cold, and because my equilibrium was off, I fell and cut my foot and bruised my elbow badly. The trip home took an excruciating 9 hours. Today I feel like total shit, no appetite, my ears are blocked up and I have a runny nose.
But just because I knew I was back on square one, I decided to measure my arms just to gauge how deep I was in the hole... and to my astonishment, my biceps are larger by over 1/4"!!! And at 5'4 1/2" tall, that kind of growth is damned near spectacular considering the sub-par situation I was in days previously.
Anyone have a friggin' clue as to what's going on here?
I mean, shit... if I grow this easily from poor practices, I'm going to repeat the pattern regularly! lol
