Day 8 – lift 5
Wow I feel great! I checked my HRV score. WHOOT! Highest it’s been since before I started this training cycle. I’m so amped to train. CAN’T WAIT! What to do with all this energy? I’m tweaking out worse than Shia Labeouf.
People have been asking me about creatine lately, so I will mention so stuff.
All too often I see articles blaming creatine for things that just are not true. These include kidney failure, liver failure, dehydration, serve cramping, and my personal favorite is when creatine is confused with an anabolic steroid. The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness states creatine does not cause gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, liver, or kidney side effects of any kind. Got that? Correct creatine supplementation is safe. Period.
Couple of lifting groups have passed and I still have more energy than I know what to do with. It’s almost to the point of annoying myself. Tayler, however, is riding a much different train. “Man I slept so long and I am still so tired.” He said as I sat twitching at my desk. “Its ok! You have pulled me through some lifts… Now it is my turn. LET’S GO LIFT!”
Today was a light power day. We backed way off in weight do some advice from people that have seen this performed before. Boy am I glad I listened! A few sets in and my glutes and low back lit up like a Christmas tree. It felt good to move though. I am feeling much more confident about exposure 3.
