It’s time for X3 Bar Week 5! I seriously look and feel better than ever! Check out my picture below. You can be the judge.
What’s crazy is that my weight has stayed pretty constant since starting X3 Bar. I am checking the scale and I’m staying at a solid 185 pounds but I definitely look bigger and leaner. My friends and girlfriend even complimented me that I look way more jacked as of late.
One pound of muscle and one pound of fat weigh the exact same, of course, but they obviously don’t look the same. This is because muscle is denser than fat. One pound will take up a smaller area on your body than one pound of fat. In other words, I am losing body fat and building more muscle but I am remaining at the same weight.
Weeks 1-4 had me training 4 days a week with 3 rest days. Now, I am starting week 5, which starts 6 days of training and 1 rest day. My body has definitely gotten more accustomed to X3 Bar and the intensity it entails. That’s why you get more rest days initially when first training. Now, it’s time to ramp up my X3 training so I can get even better results.
Week 5 focuses on two more principles – constant tension and diminishing range. I will discuss these in my next post.
