I felt very sluggish and uninspired this workout. I need more sleep. And not just "more" sleep, but enough rest by falling asleep at an earlier hour. Getting to bed early has long been a problem for me, son of two night owls and an individualistic "night reader" (…like Hitler, actually, but less manic). I can feel my past couple weeks at the gym catching up with me, especially my A1 and A2 workouts this Wednesday and Thursday. That's good, actually, since it means my body is investing energy into growth and not just quick exertion for a one-off workout. (My weight seems to have gone up a little, but most of the discrepancy is that I weighed in with shoes on.) My legs and forearms are already visibly stronger and I'm improving on the jump rope. Once again I was stunned at how disproportionate the majority of lifters here are: they're more into shoulder-bicep-and-pec-building than BODYbuilding. Time for a nap and then Mass tonight. Stay tuned.
