Not surprised by this week’s gain for a couple of reasons. One, I am retaining water (thanks, nature, you suck); two, I rested from gym workouts this week. I was so sore from the leg workout I did last Saturday that I was in pain for most of the week, so I decided to give my body a break. I literally could not move for the first 3 days post-workout without yelping in pain. What was the source of this pain, you ask? Squats up against the wall with a balance ball. Because the leg press machine at my gym is hard on my back (it pushes very, very uncomfortably on the small of my back), I have resorted to doing balance ball squats instead to work my quads. It’s a better workout anyway, since I’m basically leg pressing my body weight with every repetition, and this is heavier than any plates I could put on the leg press machine and move anyway.
