Both conditioning and Kettlebell felt awesome, last year at the same period I used to squat 120-140kg 5 times a week and keep on with 45' HIIT. I felt a bit like last year, I feel that I can, I am moving forward again.
This is the first time I feel fit again in months so I am really happy.
Day 10 conclusions:
From a physique perspective, I weighed myself first thing in the morning and was 85.7kg so I am satisfied. To my surprise, I weighed 86.6kg at night After dinner before going to bed. I am intrigued as I Had 3 training sessions today including an hour swim.
Swimming is the only thing that I haven't done so far, does it have any kind of influence (the water I swallow, not sweating and feeling thirsty afterward??)
The massive difference today is at a recovery level, I double up training sessions and I am fine. Today was my third triple session day of the week and I feel as I trained only once today. I recover faster and better.
Tomorrow will be a test of recovery, let see how my body reacts to today sessions. On the other hand let see if the weight gain is confirmed...
