Counting Down To 104 Consecutive Weeks and My 53rd Birthday Workout Day
Sunday, February 05, 2023
Mas Aqua Por Favor! I know I didn't drink enough water yesterday at work. Barely finished my Stanley Cup all day. I do drink water while working out but not nearly enough. My calf muscles started to twitch and it wasn't even a leg day.
My triceps and Shoulders are smoked! Chest, Tri and Shoulder day. Home for an easy ride. Tomorrow is Leg Day! pic.twitter.com/8jFRfm0tk7— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) February 5, 2023

I increased my weight on two movements and not by choice. The lighter weights were being used by others. So that pushed me a bit today. That's a good thing. I did feel good in my workout. I should have hit the Incline BB a bit harder. By the time I got to shoulders I was gassed out. As I'm about to hit 53 I'm feeling and looking stronger then ever.
Here are my In Between Sets Ranting:
Stop laughing. Seriously. Joey Swoll would like that. The One Inch Crew is at it again. There is a small group of older men who lift far too heavy of weight but only have a one inch range of motion. Sometimes not even engaging the muscle intended.
I know not to judge others. I don’t know their restrictions or the reason why they do the movement that way. What I should do is engage conversation with them but hell NO! This is my time for EDM blasting in my ears while caffeine pumps through me.
I know that’s not very “Random Acts of Fitness” of me. But yesterday one of my centers hosted about 50 cyclist and a Walkaway The Pounds class so I’m Acted out. I actually opened one center and closed another so 6:30am to 9:30pm!
