Emotional Damage and My Long Workout
Sunday, January 09, 2022
Currently on TikTok there is a meme that people are stitching to their own videos in which a man comically yells "Emotional Damage" and for me that is why I spend so much time at the gym when I can. Right now it's the only time of the day I have to myself. I put on my music and just escape. On most weekdays I don't have much escape time so weekends I try to have as much as I can. No thinking just gym time and my music. This up coming week that time is even less with us being so short staffed. To be honest I don't think I have a day off for the next two weeks or so. I'm going to try to get in some Peloton quick rides in the morning on days I can't get to the gym. And some mornings I'll workout, go home to shower and eat breakfast at my desk at work.
I've been doing a 6 Week Cycle of Full Body Workouts and today I combined two of them together to make a workout for me. Since I may only get two more workouts in this week I'll continue this series of Full Body Workouts.
Did a 20 Minute Warmup. While taking in some water my face mask string broke so head to go to my car to get another mask to cover it.
Always carry a back up mask in case those damn strings break. #gymselfie #maskup pic.twitter.com/cgo65eWX2q— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) January 9, 2022
Started the workout with DB Romain Deadlifts for 5 Sets
Incline DB Bench Press 5 Sets
Bent Over DB Rows 5 Sets
Alternating DB Lunges 4 Sets

Seated DB Overhead Press 4 Sets
DB A-Frame Bench Press 4 Sets
EZ Bar Skullcrushes 3 Sets
DB Hammer Curls 3 Sets
Seated DB Front Raises 3 Sets
Seated DB Lateral Raises 3 Sets
Then a 30 Minute Peloton Hill & HITT Tread Run
I was at the gym way too long. My only explanation would be to play that #tiktok meme “Emotional Damage”. The gym with my AirPods are my sanctuary. pic.twitter.com/3KVsWfnrYQ— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) January 9, 2022
Hopefully I can get in two more workouts or maybe three this week. May have to pull a double on Saturday so my next "longer" or "emotional damage" will be on Sunday.
