Today was a rest day for me and I had alot of fun! I went to a hockey game and froze my butt off, but it was alot of fun. I met up with alot of people I know from my past and we had some good chats. It was a blast.
I did some reading in Championship Bodybuilding by Chris Aceto today. While I didn't really learn anything new, it simply confirms my existing knowledge. Chris spends alot of time talking about adaptation and how to avoid it. He says something I know my friend, Mike Groom, will agree with. “Heavy weights is the most basic stimulus causing maximal muscle fiber recruitment. When you take a set to failure in the 6 to 12 rep range, rest assure all the 2b fibers — the one's that have the greatest potential for muscular growth — are recruited.” (p. 112) Chris spends some time talking about the various splits that are available for bodybuilding. He recommends different things for beginner, intermediate and advanced trainees. While alot of it is common sense, Chris puts a different spin on it. It is very interesting to read.
My first perfect day since the toe issue!
