Yep, now I feel it. This workout is tough, but not just because of the movements themselves. Before I can do front squats I have to power clean the bar to my chest, and before I can do the dumbell bench I have to pick up the weights and get them in position, and stuff like that. It all adds up when you're heart rate is already elevated.

Today I did the same workout as yesterday, but I used 115 on the bar and 75 lb dumbells. I rested less than yesterday, so the workout felt as hard as yesterday even though the weight was less. I was in and out of the gym in a very short time, which is nice because I'm actually home before my wife even gets off work.

I've already consumed 1700 calories today. This has officially become a test of the calories in vs. calories out theory, because on this many calories I should be gaining 1lb a week. If I don't gain or even continue to lose, it will be proof positive that, at least for me, macros are just as important as calorie totals.
