I don’t know if it’s from the growing boredom of the first months T25 videos, or these are just that much more fun, but I like the Beta phase so far. This was a good one to start the day. The body is mildly getting used to getting up a getting after it. I don’t know if this is such a good idea long term, but I can keep it going. Actually, I’m pretty sure that doing this first thing in the morning is raising my cortisone levels, but I’ll be alright!
Played a round with our Assistant Pro, Steve Giermak. I’ve been working with a golf coach over the past year, but I am no where near hitting the ball like they do. My swing speeds and distances are on ‘par’ with the professionals, but they hit the middle of the face pretty much every swing. Steve played his best round ever, and I was 1 shot away from mine (lipped out an eagle on 18 for a 73). First time I’ve witnessed a -3 round. Getting closer to my goal of breaking par. Now on to leg day!
Again, Over Load Progression has me at the final phase of the first round. 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 40%, 50%, 60%, 60% 1RM.
Back Squat: 100/125/150/150. I’ve been listening to the guys at MindPumpMedia.com, and they gave some good advise on squatting. I remembered it before the 3rd set, and it really helped my range of motion (ass to grass).
Front Squat: 4 Sets, 10 Reps: 120/120/120/120. This almost broke me. I’ve been hot and running ragged. Mental toughness had to take over.
Single Leg Press: 120/120/120/120 per leg. This was a gritty round. This website got me through it.
Calf Crushers: 45’s! I had to take breaks between the moves, but I got it done.
Leg Raise/TRX Rollout: 3 Sets, 12/10 Reps. Not gonna lie, I felt like quitting here, but the second round was strong. I could definitely tell that my lower abs are stronger.
3 more days to get this first month done. If you’ve been following, I really appreciate it.
