M2 | Week 4 | day 2

I have 2 training sessions in this new FL component and just did the second one. WOW, it is really tough. Especially since I'm doing cardio directly afterward. If I don't lean out considerably over the next 3-4 weeks then clearly I have no clue what I'm doing. BUT I WILL,I have no doubt.

Giant sets are really hard...4 x different exercises in a row done without rest x 4 sets of 10. Followed 60 seconds later by another giant set of 4 x 2 sets of 20 with no rest.

Then 20 minutes HiiT - dripping is an understatement following that, but it is so satisfying when you've cooled off.

It's like banging your head against a brick wall...it's great when you stop.

Keep coming back - I feel a philosophical post coming on.

Good luck with the giant sets! I would do these (or even supersets) but I find you need a fairly quiet gym to be able to do them successfully. Tying up 4 bits of equipment is impossible at my gym. I'll be watching how you go, I'm sure you will do very well.

Cheers, Mike

Hey Mike Thanks man...yup you are right about busy gyms...I am lucky enough to be able to train at around 10am when there are very few people around so it ain't a problem for me at all. Come back to see how I'm doing. I'm posting new pics on friday.
