as im writing this i feel tingling in my feet and my hands. new capillaries yessssss
its been too since ive done something even remotely close to a cardio workout. i feel good. obviously my cardio was very poor but i def pushed through it. i accredit that non stop mentality to 6 years of wrestling. you can always push harder. it doesn’t look like much but i did not take any breaks in between. i was doing something similar to rich franklin where he’s running from machine to machine. i plan on doing something similar tomorrow… heck, i might just keep doing this for the whole month… we’ll see what the mirror and scale says.

note* bench felt much stronger after 8 minutes of uphill jogging…

it seems that my bench got stronger out of nowhere. deads are staggering around 405lbs, but tonight was the first time i went for two reps. Why such high weight when im cutting? i want to keep my strength. i figure one day out of the week, doing high weights will keep my cns and kinetic chain in check. kinda like a reminder? hard to explain.
