I’m at the official half way point of this legs EOD for 6 weeks, workout number 11 in 20 days.
I’m definitely feeling overtrained. I’m getting headaches just about every day and I’m feeling like I’m 2 weeks out of a contest. I’m down 15 lbs in 20 days, which I wasn’t really expecting. I was 278lbs on day 1 and I was 263lbs today. I’m definitely leaner, but most of the weight is glycogen (and the water that comes with it), I believe.
The problem is that I can’t really eat enough to fill out. Even if I have high carb/calorie days every day, im doing a full 1.5-2hr leg workout every other day which pretty much depletes me back down.
The other problem is its f’n hard to eat after a hard leg workout.
When you’re training legs once a week that isn’t really an issue….but when you’re struggling to eat after a workout 3-4 times a week it really starts to add up.
Im halfway done now though so there’s no backing out. I’ll continue to try to get enough calories in and hope my weight stabilizes.
I will say that my legs seem to have come up. I don’t think it shows in the pics, but my hams seem to be much rounder and my legs seem to be a standout body part now (which was never the case before). My separation and sweep also seem to be markedly better better than 3 weeks ago.
How much of that is the fact that my upper body is very flat (and comparatively smaller) and how much is actual leg growth will remain to be seen though. At this point I expect (or at least am hoping) that once I recover and fill back out when this is over I’ll see a good amount of progress from this experiment
