Day 5 - 05/14/12
Ok, things are starting to get interesting. I woke up and my forearms were pumped and tight and I haven't trained biceps since Thursday. When doing cardio on the bike, my calves became pumped as well. Not so bad that I couldn't do it, but just the light pedaling of LISS cardio had a nice little calf pump going. I've been doing cardio for the last 7+ months and this is the FIRST time that my calves got a pump doing cardio. We'll see if this continues...
It wasn't bad, but even getting mild lower back pumps as well. I will say that even though I normally consume 2+gallons of water/crystal light per day, I did feel myself getting a little bit more dehyrdated than ususual, so of coure I increased my consumption. Just a note to all those who are trying/may try any IML oral product.
Leg training came around and I honestly was dragging mentally a bit today. Joints were feeling a little rickety and tight, but once I got the ball rolling on leg extensions, things began to turn around nicely. Here's what went down for Quads...
