I’m kind of worried because I spent the hours before this lift thinking of excuses to skip it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any that were good enough so I went. I still hate it.
What is wrong with me? I’m just a big baby.
Yes I hate Phase 6. I wouldn’t wish Phase 6 on my worst enemy. If I ever run into someone who has done the Men’s Health HGM plan the first thing I’ll talk to them about it Phase 6. I’m sure they’ll just nod and we’ll have a moment of silence thinking about the absolute insanity we put ourselves through. I’ll probably have nightmares about this damn phase.
I’m constantly sore now. My wife is finding ways to skip out on the lifts but I drag her to the runs. She’s always complaining about being sore. She doesn’t have a clue. Every muscle in my body below my neck is in pain.
If I weren’t so type A and OCD I’d probably quit this lifting plan. I’ll think about quitting but I won’t. I hate starting something and not finishing it. It really bothers me and I know that it would be all I could think about forever. I’m not a quitter. Never have been, never will be.
Therefore, I will bitch and moan on my blog until sometime in April when Phase 7 starts.
I might as well mention some positives. I can now do all 3 sets of 12 lower leg raises on the decline bench. When I first did those things a few months ago all I could do was lift my legs. Now I can lift my butt off the bench on every single one. I’m actually pretty proud of that. It’s tough to do. I’m also at the point where I can stay up for 3 sets of 20 seconds on the bridge thing. I was huffing and puffing like a freak during the first week. I have it down pat now.
