Anvil or Hammer

That’s why they call it DELAYED onset

Posted in Rest and Recovery by Mike on February 14, 2008

I felt great on Tuesday, I was shocked, I didn’t think I would be able to move after that high volume junk on Monday. I mean, I had a touch of soreness but nothing even worth noting. Then it hit on Wednesday and not where I expected either, hamstrings and triceps only. It’s much better today. The tricep soreness is gone, the hamstrings still have a touch but they are more tight than sore. I’ve been stretching and I will keep doing it, so it’s not bad.

I did not work out last evening. It just wasn’t in the cards. I may see if I can get together fifteen minutes tonight and do one of the weird circuits I have been favoring for my midweek stuff. Of course tomorrow is the big one for the week.

My bodyweight this morning was 230.8, before the scale settled into it’s groove I saw 229 flash by a couple times. That got me all excited. I just did a quick look and my record since starting this and since basic training in ’99 is 229.2. I wonder if I can push past that finally.

    Delayed soreness like that is the worse. I didn’t read your log closely enough before. 10 sets is goofy high volume for those exercises.

    With a little effort you can be in the 220’s before the end of the month.
