And then all at once, especially if you aren’t paying attention.
Today was so-all-the-squats day, otherwise know as Triometrics in the P90X3 world. Now, I have been so focused on abs, which was my first ever goal, and arms because I realized that a small child could beat me at arm wrestling, that I totally haven’t noticed what has been going on with my legs at all.
They are getting kinda ripped.
After 30 minutes of doing the most ridiculous squats I have ever done (Hell’s Chair and Jack Squats are my two least favorite), my muscles were so pumped it felt like I was gonna hulk out of my leggings!
I’ve heard the term “pumped” but this was really the first time I actually felt pumped.
Oddly enough, not the biggest fan. Pumped isn’t like a runner’s high were you feel invincible. Instead it really is more like the Hulk where you are looking at your legs going, what in the world?!? Whose legs are these?
I’ve been watching the numbers on the scale bounce back and forth five pounds, and it has shown me the scale just can’t be trusted. Realizing you worked so hard you pumped up your quads, that can be trusted.
Hang in there, everyone. Take photos, take measurements, ignore the scale, and you will find yourself suddenly surprised some day by the results of all your hard work!
