I didn’t work out all weekend, but come Monday I am still feeling the burn from Fridays bicep workout. I started training a new way this year that I have never tried before and I am really feeling the intensity. I started doing drop sets on all my exercises, it’s really intense and actually shortens my time in the gym which is interesting. Last year when I started working out I was doing supersets, now i’ve just transitioned over to drop sets because I could feel my body adapting to my old routine and I had started the plateau. I’m excited about working out again, I’ve set personal goals for myself and just got a new barrel of vega sport to keep at work and drink after my workouts to recover. I can’t wait to get more toned and bigger as the weeks pass on.
A good video I watched today:
Happy New Year, you have the flu, you’re welcome. Two days ago was the first time I started to feel better, I celebrated by attempting to run a couple miles. I didn’t make it as far as two miles and only made it a little over one-point-five running and walking. I count this as a win because I’m still wheezing normally just sitting down. Afterwards I felt energized, I cleaned my basement, I took out tons of trash, I did a load or laundry. I ate popcorn and laid in bed at 10pm. I am going to ease back into my life, don’t want to get out of hand
Yesterday I did another run, this time I made it the entire one-point-five miles without stopping. One might not consider this a win as this is not a long distance, but after having the flu this is quite the milestone. I am trying to keep in mind that I need to take it easy, something I am not the best at doing so this is good for me.
Today I went to the gym to lift a little, man am I weak (from sickness)! I didn’t do a complete workout, I thought it was time to stop after I got dizzy and almost fell off the side of the bench. Tomorrow is another day, at least I still look fit.
