Day 444: A Massive Hit Of DOMS And A Blog Milestone!

G'day Shredders,

In a world of hurt!

When I woke up this morning I was greeted by a massive hit of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) in my quads and hammies.

No doubt this DOMS effect (a good thing) was a result of my increased intensity FLCT (Fat Loss Circuit Training) Lower Body workout 2 days ago. When you couple this with 20 sets of "rest period skipping" for 40 seconds each your thighs, hammies and calves really do get an awesome workout.

P.S. I have a cool idea for tomorrow's Shredder Sunday Episode. I will discuss a realization that I have made about why I am able to stick to my nutrition plan throughout each day (and weekend!).

P.S.S. I hit a blog visitor milestone today! According to Clustr Maps I have now had 200,575 visits from 165 countries since I started tracking this back in March 2007. Here is the screenshot below (If you look closely you can see the 200,575 figure highlighted).

N.B. I forgot to re-upload this video 2 days as a part of my RTP Time Machine Video Series so I thought I'd make amends today.

Here is my second ever YouTube Video from Day 77, January 24, 2007. This vid was the first I recorded with my new computer so I made my first "fancy" intro!

M4 Shred: Day 33 of 84

Nutrition: My meal plan was spot on today.

Training: I got in a semi-fasted HIIT Cardio workout (again hitting the all-important last 2 minutes at 16km/h on the last cycle) while in the midst of major lower body muscle soreness. Needless to say I was completely hammered after this, so much so that it took major focus to also get in my ab workout as well!

I have a love/hate relationship with DOMS! I love knowing I worked hard enough to get them, but I hate the pain and sometimes inconvenience of getting them. Especially in the quads. It can sometimes be several days before it goes!
