Five days into my five-a-day program I have to say that it is surprisingly tough.
Neither the reps nor the loads are killing me:
- 2×3-5 Pull-ups
- Goblet squats 5-10@20-44kg
- Presses 2-6@20-24kg
- Get-ups @20kg
- Swings 20-40@20-24kg
and after the workout I am still reasonably fresh (after I caught my breath from the swings, that is). It is difficult in a different manner though. Firstly I am extremely tired in the evening – yesterday I collapsed at 5pm! Now it was a busy day, but nothing that would justify this kind of tiredness. Also I have to say – starting the workout is tougher than usual. When I was squatting PR’s I might have been a bit nervous just before, but I always was excited doing it.
With this workout, the feeling is more like “oh sh+t, I have to do it again today, and tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow..”. This feeling then dissipates once I start the workout and I see how “easy” it is, but still. Let’s see how things go – I might need to break it up with a rest-day or two.
