I've been Shugging for one month so far. I haven't lifted weights in many, many years. I can feel my muscles responding. During the past month, I've noticed the sledgehammer getting lighter and I've noticed I have better control.

But during the day, (even S days) my muscles feel fatigued and seem to tire very quickly. More strength but less endurance. Anyone else experience this?

I started with a 10 pound hammer about 3 months ago. I remember this feeling the first 4-6 weeks the day after. Tuesday night was the worst.

Now I don't feel much of any soreness/fatigue the next day. I'm eyeing a 16 pounder at the local hardware store and it may be time to move up. I expect I'll feel the same when I move up in weight again.

There have been times (particularly at the end of the week) where I feel beat, but I don't think quite what you describe. In general I feel like I have both much more strength and more endurance since I started practicing shovelglove.

Maybe you're overworking yourself? Try easing up a bit, particularly as the week goes on. I do my heavy routines (up to 42 reps of certain movements) Monday and Tuesday, go lighter on Wednesday and Thursday ("routine of sevens"), and freestyle (usually not too killer) on Friday.

Best of luck figuring this out and getting past it,

Reinhard

Are you getting enough protein in your diet?
I started drinking whey shakes right after workout, and muscle pain and fatigue went away.
