Thanks for the heads up on the video TR, I’ll check it out.

That’s where only experience in doing it is going to prevail. My biggest worry is that I’m going to try to do too much too fast. Hell trying to tackle Westside at my level of experience is a leap but I’ve never been one to do things half-a$$ed.
Like I mentioned in a post above it’s already been a valuable learning experience. Like today I am on a cutting diet and already did Hill Sprints this afternoon. I ended up getting off work early so instead of waiting until tomorrow to do my ME Upper Body workout I’m going to hit it tonight to give me a little more time off before my ME Lower Body on Saturday. Plus now I’ll get to pig out tonight instead of waiting until tomorrow. Thing is before I started doing Hill Sprints I would have been beat by now but they actually give me more energy now that I’ve been doing them for a while.
I sure hope you can keep your gym time up. I’ve been very lucky this past year not getting sick or injured in any serious way despite beating the crap out of my body. I know I would go nuts if I couldn’t exercise 8 months in a leg cast taught me that.
