Beast Mode Workout Day #4

beast-mode-is-onWith the extreme leg workout that I did yesterday I expected to feel some pain this morning, but with the additional protein I took in yesterday I feel just fine. I feel strong and alive with energy and very enthusiastic about getting into another extreme, heavy weight workout this morning. Today I will be doing some back exercises and as always will be taking each set to the maximum level my body can put out.

I am really enjoying working out this way so far and am finding that I have developed a lot more strength than I thought possible in this upper middle aged frame. I remember that there was a time where I couldn’t do more than 3 pullups and now I am pulling down 310 lbs 25 times. Challenging these muscle groups consistently over long periods of time where each time I work that muscle group to it’s maximum capacity does lead to greater overall strength and size which in turn creates a higher demand for energy and glucose from the the blood stream. When I get that last rep on each set to the point of breakdown this is exactly what I am thinking about. Glucose being called from the blood stream to rush to that exhausted muscle to fill the void of depletion. Is it easy to do? Hell no. It is uncomfortable and something that most people would choose not to experience, but it is one of the major factors involved in controlling Type II Diabetes. I believe that it is easier to do than it is to have a foot amputated. It’s all about making choices and following through.
