Day 191It was a bit early day for me, as I had to visit a local client with my team from work. I sat in a long meeting in the morning and because of that I missed my planned snack. Other meals for the day were basically on schedule. I haven’t been counting calories yet at this time, but that will come when I start a program. Right now I am still in transition mode.
In the evening, I tried out one of the workouts in Nate Green’s Built for Show. It was an upper-body workout using alternating sets of push/pull exercises. Unfortunately, a key piece of exercise equipment (the seated cable row machine) is nonexistent in the gym I go to, so I had to substitute with a HammerStrength row for now. Other than that, I enjoyed the workout and left the gym within an hour. What a refreshing change as towards the end of my StrongLifts program, my workouts were creeping toward 1.5 to 2 hours (because of the longer rest periods needed). This workout was quick as the rest periods were shorter. However, one thing that’s may be a challenge with this program (and many others that utilize supersetting) is that it’s very very difficult to do in a crowded gym. I might consider shifting my workouts to mornings before work if I can find a schedule that works for me.
Eat right, train hard, try new things, and expect success!
