I did the last week of my first month of the Get Glutes program. Starting tomorrow, I get to do month 2 workouts! The last week of the monthly program is supposed to be the time to push hard, and I tried to do that all week! Interesting thing I've noticed since doing this program for a month - I'm doing 2 days less of strength training now than I used to, but I've actually gotten noticeably stronger this month! I used to never be able to break 115 lb squats, but now I'm doing 135 lbs (4 sets of at least 8 per set). It's kind of counter-intuitive, and yet does make sense if you think about it. Recovery is just as important as the training itself. I was doing 5 days of strength training in the past, which most likely didn't allow my body to get enough rest. Also, I am now doing 3 days of full body workouts, whereas I was doing 5 days of split body part workouts. I've read that full body workouts are more effective, and it is probably so. Or, I could be benefitting from the initial shock of a new program. I'm still eating the same amount of food and my weight has not changed at all. Since it's been a month now, I feel that is long enough to say my body is probably agreeing with the new workouts lol. I'm excited to see what month 2 brings!
