I just got the 300 Soundtrack off of iTunes.
Watch me load up my Shuffle with it and destroy the gym!
Yesterday at the gym when I hopped on the scale, the read-out was 97.7 pounds. That is an all time high for me. And I'm an ectomorph! A hard gainer!
Much of the credit goes to none other than hot tub guy. I gave him a rundown of my workout routine, and he gave me a suggestion. Previously, I would start off with a weight where I could squeeze out ten reps. Then I'd add five or ten pounds and do eight more reps, add another five or ten pounds and do six reps.
hot tub guy suggested that I start off with a heavy weight, where I could do at most four reps. Then, take off five pounds and do another set, then another, then another, going to failure each time. I keep dropping the weight until I can do ten reps.
I'm working a lot harder, but I'm working more efficiently. It takes me way less time to get through my workout. And I'm upping my weights like crazy. Before, when I'd have the thought "Gosh! That was easy," I'd put a notation in my little book to up the weight next time. Now, when I'm able to do more than seven reps on the first set, I know to add more.
And it's working!
I hope the weather is warm in Cleveland when I head out there for CLAW in two weeks, because I want to be wearing as little as possible.
