JUMP WORK and METABOLICS
2023 Round 3 Week 1 Metabolic Renewal Workouts, Phase 1 - restarting after illness
M. - Leg Workout 1A 2x11.5# dumbbells - did on Tues
W - Back/Chest Workout 1B 2x6.5# dumbbells
Fr - Arms/Shoulders Workout 1C 2x6.5# dumbbells
I tried to do both workouts on Monday without any pre-workout carbs. I did not have the energy to do the metabolic conditioning (and struggled to make it through the strength training). Did the Monday metabolic conditioning on Tuesday.
