TRUST THE PROCESS. IT"S SLOW BUT TRUST IT.
CREATURE OF HABIT.
BEST LAID PLANS.
All of that sums my morning. I had thought I'd wake up early, hit the gym and hit the pool. But last night I really needed to blow off some steam so I drank a few White Claws. Which then meant no 4am gym time. I sort of needed the mental break. It also allowed me to sleep in which I also needed. I do need to play with my new FORM goggles to make sure they work and all that. Maybe after the supermarket I might hit the pool for a little bit. I got no other plans. JUST MAYBE.
Since I do compare my workouts to my last workout I like to follow the same order of my workout. A creature of habit so I can compare Apples to Apples. But today the Grndr Boy/Guy was doing a circuit using the Curl Bar so I didn't do the preacher curl and instead did the Hammer Curl. It's all good.
BACK & BICEPS
CYBEX PULLUP - More Reps than last time. I think by 2 but hey! PROGRESS
CABLE HAMMER CURL - Went up in weight. PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD
CABLE LAT PULLDOWN - MORE REPS! PROGRESS
CABLE ROW - HEAVIER
DRAG CURL - Been awhile since I've done this movement so nothing to compare.
OVERALL - DANG Shirtless Grndr Boy was using the curlbar in his circuit so had to alter my workout. He was shirt-less the whole time so I just stared out the window. It was another KICK ASS WORKOUT.
THE SPIN CYCLE:
THE WET NOTE:
THE RUN DOWN:
THE LIFT AHEAD:
MON - LEGS UPDATE: Teaching a 30 min spin class at 6:30am. Will wake up, eat, shower and get to the gym. I'll do a modified Leg Day and then teach the class. It's at the older location gym so Meh! But they did install two squat/deadlift platforms and no one uses them so that's a plus.
TUE - SPIN. Forgot I teach a 30 min class. It's later at 6:15am. So I may hit the gym upstairs and do a modified CHEST DAY before the class.
WED - BACK & BI
THU - SWIM? I'm closing Thursday night so I should be able to swim at one of the 7am lap swims and go in to work by 11am. NOPE! UPDATED: Gotta be in a 9 am for Angel Tree deliveries. Ugh. I'll try a swim at 7am.
FRI - NOTHING. Closing the night before and On-Call Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
SAT - NOTHING. ON CALL
SUN - NOTHING. ON CALL
MON - NOTHING.
RANDOM ACTS OF FITNESS:
My centers have the cycle club, a yoga class and of course pickleball.
IN MY HEAD:
BETTER. I blew off some steam last night with some White Claws. Now reset into happy thoughts for the week ahead.
ONE MORE REP:
THE MONEY SHOT:
Douche Alert! Now I remember why I wake up and go to the gym at 4am instead of 8am:
1. Use the bumper plates dude. Ya not even dead lifting that heavy.
2. Other guy why you using the one curl bar for bent over rows when there are about a dozen Olympic bars not being used.
3. Put your shirt on this isn't Crossfit.
I am sure I do stuff that makes others think I'm the douchebag!
