Maybe I'm a wuss.....
Maybe my conditioning has been lacking since I sprained my ankle.
I just finished my first attempt at bulking using the OVT routine. It was very successful, other than the fact that I am an endomorph and put on too much fat for my taste. So I decided to start cutting.
I looked up Meltdown Training http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do?id=459809
It looked good. However, I could not finish that circuit this morning. Maybe it was the four hours sleep. I don't know. I was able to make it through 2.5 sets before I felt like I was going to pass out and/or puke. This was even with increasing the rest time to three minutes instead of two.
In any case, I am looking for advice on how to continue. I see there being several possibilities.
1) Lower the weight used: I am not sure if this will help since strength does not seem to be the issue here, but conditioning.
2) Perform two sets with three minutes rest this week, three sets with three minute sets next week, three sets with two minutes rests in two weeks, and then move to the four sets with two minutes rest the week after that.
3) Suck it up, bring a bucket, and puke.
