Does anyone know why this happens:
I'm the controller at an electrical contracting company and I'm working on a bunch of year-end paper crap like every year at this time. I get home after 10 hours in the office and feel beat. It's my push night, so I down some Superpump 250 and trudge downstairs feeling exhausted.
I load the bar and warm up to start benching. After warm up I usually do 3 sets of 255lbs for 4 reps and then move to dumbell and shoulder work. I complete this with ease and feel like superman even though I was dragging a short time before. I doubt the Superpump was completely responsible for my feeling of euphoria. My personal best on the bench is 310lbs. and I had no intention of maxing, but I thought what the heck. I preceded to push 265, 275, 285 and then 295 all with extreme ease. I know I could have done more, but like I said it wasn't time for me to max.
I went on to have an insane workout, shoulders and triceps along with a great pump. I certainly didn't feel 46! Does this happen often to anyone else?
"The perfect day consists of 8 hours of rest, 8 hours of work, and 8 hours of play."
My workouts are more fulfilling when I train after work. You get a sense of accomplishment
Great quote! Ben Franklin right?
I also agree that my training is better when I work that day. The best my training has ever been was when I was working 70 hours a week and smoking weed everyday, but I can't think of a clever quote for that one.
“I used to do drugs. I still do drugs. But I used to, too.”
I too like to workout after work, but some days I cant. I have a fairly physical job sometimes. Strange, but on some occasions I have been pretty well buggered from work and I am so determined to workout that I have a great intense workout, beating PR's and the like.
But training legs, and then having to climb up and down from a ships crane 4 times a day is a killer
