Today I entered the gym again ready to attack. I was going to strive to go to another level. Again I wanted to train in straight set fashion. Completing all sets before moving on to the next exercise. Training this way allows me to focus on that one muscle group before moving to the next exercise. Rest intervals were about 40-45 seconds. Except for leg presses which were probably about 1 minute.

Great workout. I really think I need to take a few days off for recovery. I just hate to with this success.
I have gained so much lean muscle tissue performing this workout. My conditioning is out of this world. So much for body building theories of extended recovery times. In fact, by training muscle groups so infrequently you may be severely limiting your progress.
