It is so easy to fall off the exercise bandwagon. Go into work early, leaving work late, allergies, aches and pains, etc. Realistically for most people working out is not a career and everyday life can easily derail you. You skip one day and then another and before you know it a month of non-gym going has passed. This week I almost fell off the workout path and wanted to just sleep in. Yesterday I woke up to a stuffy nose due to allergies and knowing that I had to work a bit later I ended up sleeping in an extra hour and skipping the gym. This morning I woke up to tight hip flexors which led to some lower back pain. I so wanted to roll over and skip another day. But I can't let the day to day stuff derail me. I got up and hit the gym doing upper body and no cardio (except an easy warmup).
Today was just weights. Chest, Triceps and Shoulders. No cardio. From time to time I get super tight hip flexors and this is the week. Started the other day and almost skipped the gym today. Lots of trigger point therapy the next few days. pic.twitter.com/SyIS8fJ4qV— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) March 3, 2022
10 Minute Warm Up (should have done more stretching)
5 Sets of the following
Incline BB Bench Press
Superset: DB Chest Flys / DB Skullcrushers
Seated Machine Chest Press
Seated DB Overhead Press
Superset: Tricep Pushdowns / Face Pulls
Superset: DB Front Raise / DB Lat Raise
When I came home I did some trigger point rolling. I'm going to stretch while at work today when I can and I have a 10 minute Yoga Hip Opening Routine to do tonight. I'm most likely going to rest tomorrow and hope by the weekend I'm ready to take on some running again.
