Today marked the last week of Jacktheknife's 6 week program for me!

To be honest, I'm too tired to write down a play-by-play review. Besides, if you've been following along, you'll know where I've made some strides. Some lifts I've made little to no progress, and in others I've made quite a bit of progress.

I noticed something around week 5: the program I once loved so much began to irritate me and I'd find myself very grumbly at the gym. I was eager to start the next program Jack and I had made...and I also wanted to try cardio out (I am not sure what is with this cardio itch, but I think I've lost my mind).

I actually noticed this with the break-in phase of the NROLFW - I think 6 weeks is perhaps too long for me mentally. But perhaps necessary. I dunno.

How long do YOU lift for before switching it up?

Jack's program focuses on gaining muscle mass. It's a 4 day split, so one workout is leg-focused, one focuses on my "push" muscles, and the other two focus on my "pull" muscles and my butt. I don't really need to build a better butt (I'm pear-shaped), but Jack suffers from a lack of gluteus maximus, so I think he just puts a butt-focus in his workouts.

I find that I enjoy them for two reasons. 1. They are geared towards my goals and contain things that I enjoy doing or things I haven't tried before; 2. It allows me to work out multiple days in a row if that's what works best for me. It's also less taxing overall than a full-body workout. If you start a new full-body routine, your entire body hurts for a few days after. Not so with these, just part of your body.

    I think you started wishing that your program was over right about the time we wrote the new one. I do the same thing-- one I have a new one ready to go I get excited and can't wait to get it started.
