MI40-x logs: week 1; week 2



Week 3 is a new split using reciprocal inhibition, and geared more towards “power”. That said, reps don’t go below 6 and there are a lot of extremely slow negatives.

(Each week in this program is structured slightly differently, so it will be interesting to see if this is effective or if it changes too frequently to progress.)

Day 1 was brutal. I don’t think I’ve ever left a chest/back day before about to puke.

The first Arms & shoulders day of the week was fairly moderate in terms of intensity.

And even the leg days weren’t bad as I normally come away with cramping but did not for these workouts.

Overall this week felt a little less challenging than the first two weeks but that could be by design.

MI40-x week 1 log

Week 2 was very similar in structure to week 1 in terms of the split and the volume. One of the key differences was that NOSx was utilized a little more frequently and even at the beginning of some workouts which made the rest of the training very challenging.

A lot of the challenge of this week was battling mental fatigue more than muscular failure, which in my opinion is character building if nothing else.

I also got through more of the educational videos this week, which were fairly informative as far as the theory behind the program.

A couple of glitches have been worked out in terms of the diet calculators, but one issue was the coaching call. The audio was cutting out so badly on it that it had to be taken down. That was back on June 16 and so far it has not been re-recorded or even rescheduled as far as I know.

The support team is really good about getting back to any questions I’ve asked so far, but they haven’t been emails to let us know when there are updates to the site etc.

Week 3 is where it starts getting really intense…
