I don't get it. Yesterday, I did 585 upper body reps, and today I'm not sore. WHILE I was doing them (with the trainer - are you crazy, I wouldn't do all those reps on my own), I didn't realize the volume. He would say 20 reps - and I would moan, because we do EVERYTHING 3 times, so 20 reps really means 60 reps - and while the first 20 were usually ok, the second 20 were rough, and the third twenty were killers - but I made it through the first 9 exercises . . . until the pushups at the end -- and I guess I looked so pathetic that we settled for 20, 15, then 10.
SO - why am I not sore today?
We didn't do chest presses - they always grab my pecs. We didn't do triceps - THEY always are sore the next day . . . and we didn't do any &*^% squats (he's probably saving them for tomorrow) - and squats ALWAYS hurt.
But I really would have thought that 585 of ANYTHING would hurt.
