Nathalie I don't expect to gain much size since I am doing, for the most part, short sets with hopefully increasing weights. Bodybuilding usually involves lots of" fairly" long sets for hypertrophy. Power lifters usually shorter sets with heavy weights. Most power lifters don't bulk like bodybuilders, but are incredibly strong and explosive. I thought I would try this for 12 weeks and see if my lifts increase. I haven't done a lot of deadlifting, so I am interested in seeing how it goes. I am starting light with the idea of increasing the weight each week. I may actually lose some size (not crazy bout that) but if I have a stronger base it might make future size gains easier!Hi Everyone,
Wod was 4ds segment High intensity step and Great Glutes. It was a challenging high rep Leg day.
Yesterday #rest day. I had tight hamstring and DOMS from Athletic training. It is unbelievable how effective a
simple band used for hamstring kickbacks could be!
Tom: Hope you get what you want (muscle mass) soon. It sounds like you have been longing for muscle mass for a while now
Are you hopping to gain both strength and muscle mass from Nia program? I believe this program is for 12 weeks and it
is the lower end of strength rep range 1-6 rep. I may give it a try some time in future. Just want to do other rep range
for now. That being said I am not looking to look as tiny as Nia regardless of what she is able to perform.
I am not aiming to look like her. One thing I have learned over years is to never aim to identically look like somebody
else. Each skeleton is different... i have to make the most of what I have. That's why I never chose a trainer based
on a visual look I am hammering my body for!!JMHO
According to what I heard she is strong and really good. I heard many very good comment years ago on this forum.
Jen: RIPT90 is a Beachbody workout. I did not know. Is it? I have read half of your review. Will read the rest.
Do you see yourself re-visiting it in future? Be strong fighting hunger. I am in this experiment with you.
Not really an experiment for me cause I did it in the past without giving 100% focus and I lost few pound.
I fasted with no nutrition plan when I stopped travelling to France for work.
You can do it! My problem is evenings this is when it is going to be challenging for me.
So far so good. After 8 pm I should not be having any meal. I want to push it up to 7pm.
Svetlana: Hope you have had your Great Glutes now. I did it today and it is a challenging endurance workout.
it is great workout for working glutes without necessarily increasing the size of the legs.
SarBear Are you re-starting STS soon? what is your goal. At the moment I am doing high reps/ciruit and cardio
aiming to re-gain back a decent level of endurance before re-starting STS. After that I will do bodybuilding rotation.
That is all I have to share for now.
Happy Monday everyone
