Look forward to following your growth progress!
My wife, God bless her, is into fitness as well, but the other day she mentioned that all I seemed to talk about lately was training, lol! Whoops.

No doubt. I can't believe the crap people put in their bodies. Even people who profess to care about training.

Obviously, your body isn't going to be use to that much volume out of nowhere. You need to build up to it. I use to only be able to workout 3 or 4 times per week or my numbers wouldn't be as good in the later half of the week. But now, with proper nutrition and having given my body time to adapt, I can lift 5 times per week of pretty much all squat, deadlift, or bench variations. Our bodies are truly something amazing!
Well said Arian.
