Day 44 of 84
Metabolic Surge: Strength and Recovery Phase, Day 8
Tonight I did my last day of resistance training on the Strength and Recovery Phase, and on the agenda was Strength Training for the upper body (chest, back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps). As with my previous session, I aimed to add resistance to my first (base) set compared to my last Strength Training workout for upper body, even if only 2.5 to 5 kg on each corresponding set. I am glad to report that I was again able to meet my target weights and even set personal records on my barbell bench press and deadlifts. I really tried to push myself as I know it will be several weeks again before I am able to attempt these heavy weights, as I’ll be restarting Metabolic Surge after completing the Strength and Recovery Phase (with a few days gap, more on this soon). I’m really raring to get back to the Surge Cycle and start hard shredding again.
Nutrition was again on track and within my targets. The only thing I ate today which was not on my nutrition plan was a few small bites of toast, with Vegemite! I’ve never tasted it before, so I just had to have a go at it while I’m here, as it seems to be a big deal here in Australia. I found its taste very unusual, a bit too salty for me. It’s not really bad, but not something that I’ll be looking for in the future!
Hope all of you learned or experienced something new (like I did) today!
