Week 11: 163.3

Only two pounds away from my goal…

The hypertrophy cycle hasn’t done anything miraculous, but it certainly hasn’t hurt.  I’m entering my fourth week of the cycle, and weight gain has been essentially linear.  This week starts a 1-week “unloading” microcycle, meaning that I’m reducing volume by 50% to allow recovery before going into a strength microcycle.  This decrease in volume may actually lead to a jump in bodyweight.  It’ll be interesting to see how the week goes.

This week’s jump in weight is probably attributable to decreased stress (finally finished grading papers) and increased caloric intake (this was my first full week at 24 blocks).  However, the jump in weight may just be random error too.  Who knows.  I’ve got control over a lot of things, but there are still too many variables.
