Week 1 Day 3: 10/1/11

Completed my 1st week of Mad Cow Intermediate.
It feels kinda light right now still so just working mainly in improving my form. I think it is going to be around the 4th and 5th week when the weight will start getting challenging.I guess I should just enjoy this light couple of weeks as a practice for the heavy duty work that is to come.Only issue today is somehow my left hip is tight again.
