Coming up on Monday real quick. Why not get a fresh start on the week!
This is a good time to do a gut check on your training.
I mean seriously look beyond your PRs.
How do you feel overall?
How are your knees?
How are your shoulders?
How’s your back?
How’s your energy level?
How’s your attitude?
How’s you recovery going?
If everything hurts, guess what?
You to take a break or change your training, maybe both.
Don’t get me wrong, I think heavy lifting is good and PRs are important, but not at the expense of your health.
However, if you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck when you get up in the morning
and if you are grouchy even after your coffee, something’s wrong.
Popping Ibuprofen every day is not the answer.
Some smart changes must be made.
We are all creatures of habit to a certain extent and subconsciously don’t want to change.
Here’s an example:
On June 5, 2018 I was in an ambulance headed for the Emergency Room.
That was almost the day of my life.
Come to find out I had a previously undiagnosed genetic heart problem.
I was shocked to see how fast I had lost my strength.
However, God wasn’t done with me yet and I had to start all over again.
Did I want to start back at zero?
No, but I was glad to still be alive and would do whatever it would take to build my strength back up.
I would humbly and patiently walk the path they laid out before me.
The road back required quite a few changes in my training, but I was happy to be able to train at all.
Fast forward to today, things are much better, thank the Lord.
I can safely train 3 or 4 days a week even though I just passed seven decades of life a little while ago.
Now I feel great and have plenty of energy.
I love being alive!
Train for life or trash your body at an early age.
You get to choose.
