For next few weeks I will only post my weekly results as my workouts will be roughly the same.  I will journal anything as well as provide photos and/or video if something worth noting occurs.  In the mean time I am just going to put my nose to the grindstone and make these boring bodybuilding hypertrophy workouts count.

Overview

Things went rather well this week.  My body fat went down and my weight went up which is perfect.  As much as I expressed that I don’t enjoy the bodybuilding style workouts, they were kind of refreshing for a change and I am looking forward to them this week after seeing my numbers.  I didn’t really stress about my nutrition last week and my results were still great so I will not be tweaking anything this week nutritionally and using the progressive overload principle in regards to strength training to continue making gains.  Alright everyone, have a prosperous week and I will catch you next Sunday.  Stay safe and happy!
