B5 today. 3 sets of 10 lunges = noodle legs. J asked me if I liked the program– I replied, "I’m not sure that I like it, but it is effective." I sort of like it, though. Just not at the tail end of a set.
Of all the muscles this workout hits, it seems to be hitting my forearms hardest. I’m seeing progress in my grip but my forearms are getting huge! I’m not sure how I feel about that. Regardless, if I’m going to deadlift more, my hands and forearms have to get stronger. Today’s deadlift sets were at 120lb, so I’m making progress there, but my grip is the weak link.
My right hamstring, or thereabouts (it’s the top of the hamstring area, at the hip joint) is still pretty unhappy– it doesn’t bother me running or sitting but I notice it in forward folds and doing pyramid is downright painful. I’m not sure what to do about it– the pain is just for one specific movement that I don’t do very often so it’s not high priority, but I worry.
