First time doing weights in almost a year! Also first time doing so many new exercises like Jefferson Deadlifts and Front Racked Squats. Took my brain some time to adjust to the new movement patterns, hence the light weights haha. Also, first time doing a Metabolic Conditioning workout straightaway after a strength workout. Really intense and kicked up some ‘afterburn’ effect of raised metabolism for a few hours post-workout. That Met Con was very satisfying as far as circuit training goes. Felt like I sprinted a 2.4km or did a swim sprint interval set although it only lasted 12mins! Similar ‘lung expanding’ effect!
