Dude! The Muscle Explosion Day 4 workout was frickin awesome! I have never done anything like this before, and I’ve never felt a pump like this before. Seriously, when I was doing curls I saw veins that I never new I had and they were popping out like crazy. Absolutely incredible is all I can say.
Today’s workout consisted of partial reps for high repetitions in both the extended and contracted positions. I’m not going to give everything away here, but I’ve got to tell you, this is one wicked way to train. I seriously felt huge walking around the gym because I was pumped full of blood and also I believe because a lot of the movements really focused on working the stretch position and probably created more room for my muscle to expand.
It wasn’t too difficult to choose the weight. I made sure that during my warm up I experimented with each exercise to get a feel for the weight that I would use.
The thing that really surprised me was how strong I was in the stretched position of a calve press. After doing this exercise I could feel the blood rushing to my calves and they felt incredibly warm and they looked very pumped.
This has always been a week point for me. I’m going to have to come back and revisit that exercise another day for sure.
Man did I ever get some strange looks from the guys in the gym today. I’m glad that I have my head phones on because I’m sure they would be asking me a bunch of questions.
Today the focus was on chest, back, biceps, and calves. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s workout and focusing on legs, triceps, and shoulders. I’m sure it will be awesome.

I know that the purpose of week one is to deplete your glycogen stores and to really restrict calories. My calories are quite restricted, but I remember Nick saying in the interview on how to make the most out of his program, was that one of the mistakes people make is to eat too much during the first week. He’s a big guy and he only consumes 1200 calories during the first week. I will try to reduce my calories a bit more tomorrow. At least it’s only for a couple more days then I get to feed myself
Mentally, I’m totally loving this program. It’s something fresh and exciting. That makes sticking to a program a whole lot easier.
I was still sore today from the 1st two days of training, but I pushed through that soreness and boy am I ever glad that I did.
But now, it’s time to hit the jacuzzi so I can be fresh for tomorrow’s workout.
Have a 6 Pack Abs-solutely awesome day!
