M2 | Week 3 | day 5

New personal best

Today was my last training day of phase 1 of Mission 2. I have planned my training a year in advance and phase 1 was pure fat loss program. I didn't expect to gain muscle but my strength certainly went through the roof.

Incline Dumbell Bench press up from last week to 45kgs (99lbs) in each hand for 3 x sets of 10.

It has been a revelation to me how much the body can take with this part of my program in that I have been able to increase all my weights over the past 3 weeks quite dramatically whilst working with 30 sec rest periods between supersets. Intense, Intense....followed by 20 mins Hi Intensity Cardio x 4 sessions per week. 2 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 2 days off.

I have adapted well and am really enjoying it.

Next program starts monday. Way more intense....I'll tell you how I feel after the session.

I will post new pics at the end of next week and also my stats for the first 4 weeks.
