Workout Notes: 

  • You'll have about 15 min to complete the arms portion of the workout today, then it's on to the conditioning. 
     
  • "Dude, are you SH***NG me? My legs are already so sore from yesterday, I can hardly move. Now you wan't to throw Mini Meg at me? What are you smoking?" 

    Yours is a valid concern. We call this week a classic "stacking" week. It's where we stack exercises and regions of your body on top of each other for a positive fitness effect. What POSITIVE effect? 

    It's a seasonal thing. 

    We've learned that your body responds best to programming that mimics nature. In nature, your ancestors (ancient & recent) "stacked" natural movements and labors seasonally. For example, when I was a kid on the farm, we'd move hay 3x per summer. This meant moving heavy (70+ lbs) bales by hand from the ground to the wagon, then from the wagon to the stack. Every crop took up to a week to "put up." It was a week of heavy labor using basically the same movements/muscles - all day long. We were "stacking." 

    Humans "stack" all the time. During the winter, a lot of us shovel snow day after day (wassup Boston!) - stacking. Re-tiling the bathroom - stacking, again. Weeding the garden - yep, stacking.

    Stacking is natural and your body doesn't JUST respond well to it, it is a NECESSARY component to any well-balanced fitness plan.
     
  • All of this being said, if you need to back off a bit (cause you are sore as HELL this week), it's wise to listen to your body. :)
