    On skipping cardio:

    I think it's important that you always monitor your body's inclinations & go with how you feel. Any given day, you never know what the previous few days' stress, nutrition, sleep & mental and emotional energy will result in, & each day varies in what you can draw on. There are days I feel like a caged lion rarin' to go, & other days I can barely get up & around. You have to know what you're capable of on any given day, while striving to stay on the path you follow.

    Very true, Mike.

    In this case, though, my skipping cardio has nothing to do with how my body feels, I’m just tired of that stupid machine. LOL.

    One of the greatest things about lifting is that while we’re all at a different point in our experience, we can still talk about it and appreciate each other’s training goals.
