I’ve been so busy with working on stuff for the Texas Shredder Classic (scheduled for April 26th) that I haven’t really had the time to stay on top of my blog. That, and the fact that my home internet is down…so I can’t just log on and blog in my jammies before bedtime…
Anyway, I had an incredible week of workouts! Since I got back from Dr. Joe’s bodybuilding camp I’ve been super-fired up and my workouts have been going great! The only drawback is that now I’m very sore all the time, but I kinda like that. Ok, I love that!
Right now my hamstring tendon is tight and sore from the intense training, but it’s actually improving extremely quickly now. I had another outstanding leg workout on Monday, and also improved on my partial deadlifts on Thursday (that’s why the ham is sore today).
Yesterday we were both very sore from our Thursday back workout. I was worried that my shoulder/arm workout would suffer, but once we got going and got warmed up we ended up getting the best shoulder and arm workout we’ve had since last summer!
My bodyweight is hovering about 13 lbs over my contest weight. I seem to be look bigger by the week. I ‘d like to maintain my weight here (about 183) until I start my contest diet in mid-March.
