I woke up today with a severe case of DOMs, but it made me smile. I've been working extra hard these days and the DOMs is a sign that I've been changing things up pretty well.
I came to a tough decision today. I have terminated my personal training arrangement. I was pretty conflicted about the trainer to begin with. I did like the way my time with him was interfering with my own workouts. Then i was looking through The Millionaire Workout by Ryan Lee and realized that every endurance exercise I was being taught was in this book I held in my hands.
With that in mind, if I want to add some endurance training to my plan, I can do so using this book. I don't need to layout $350 a month to a trainer just yet. I honestly believe that at some point (probably as I get close to entering a bodybuilding contest) that I will either need a trainer or a very advanced training partner, right now just isnt' the time.
Today was a cardio only day. I'm sticking to my PACE workouts. I did a good 24 minute treadmill session that had me dripping with sweat.
I am now planning my next workout phase and believe I will be using Vince DelMonte's No Nonsense Muscle Building program.
I highly recommend this system. I've dabbled with some of the workouts and I've read through the plans. He has some great support on his site and you can't go wrong with this guy's plan. Let's see what it does for me.
Coming up tomorrow will be the first podcast in my Total Immersion series.
