Day12

The tightness and soreness in my thighs has been reduced.  I don't feel much of an effect form yesterday's upper body workout.  This is a clear sign that I should be increasing the number of exercises since the number of sets and the weights certainly seem challenging at this point.

Today I did my typical 25 minutes on the stationary bike. I also did my pull-ups, a warm-up set of 5 then a maximal effort set of 8.

I should also note that throughout the latter part of this week I have been taking an enhanced vitamin and mineral regimen, including zinc and magnesium before bed on an empty stomach.  It is high in anti-oxidants (including alpa-lipoic acid, the super-antioxidant) and should help speed the repair of oxidative damage incurred in my workouts.
