Reflection: Strength days are my favorite days of the week! Not to mention the toughest too. My body took a full 4 days to recover from the previous session.
I cut the sets down to 2 instead of the usual 3 because I’m anticipating another workout tmr with The Fitness Extremist aka Jack The Ripper! Not kidding, this guy can make you RIPPED.
After carrying the kettlebell to my local park’s exercise pit, the usual gang of old folks there were fascinated by it! They kept asking me what weight it was and started picking it up and doing all sorts of exercises from rows to bicepcurls. Haha, looks like I’m carrying it down every time I workout from now!
I just bought this Amino 1000 by Precision Engineered for about $15 at my local Holland & Barrett. Was thinking of using this to complement intermittent fasting and reduce catabolism. Anyone have any experience with BCAAs or any recommendations? Always appreciate feedback/opinions/comments! 🙂
