Madcow 5 x 5 Week 2

And the baby steps continue…

I do think it is good for me to be doing this program right now.  I enjoy lifting so much that left on my own, I tend to do too much.  This is good for me.  I lift what the spreadsheet tells me to lift.  It’s frustrating though.  I know I can handle more weight, but I don’t mess with the spreadsheet.  Instead, I focus on form.  Perfect form.  It’s what I need to do to get stronger and bigger.

I like how Kai makes a distinction between a weight lifter and a body builder in this video…

 

 

I have to do the third lift for the week tomorrow.  Here is my spreadsheet for the first two weeks.

  1. Wow, I never really understood the difference between bodybuilding and weight lifting. I think I am leaning towards bodybuilding. I have been lifting for about a year with gusto . When I am able to focus on it a little more on specific goals (right now they are 4 and 6 and deserve all my energy) I
    will compete. Thanks for your posts. You are living out your dream. I am totally inspired. Keep up the great work…..
