Day 21 of 84
Metabolic Surge: Round 2, Phase 3, Day 2
Hello Shredders! Hope your weekends have been enjoyable. Thanks to Larry, Mike, and Juli who have sent me words of affirmation over the weekend. I am now at a point when I must keep going even when my body is starting to say “stop!”, so every bit of encouragement is well appreciated!
I am happy to report that my leg muscles, from my calves all the way to my glutes, have been aching the whole day today! That means that my workout yesterday still stressed my body enough even if I had some problems with the squat.
Today was day 2 of Muscle Rounds training for me, this time focusing on the upper body (chest, back, shoulders, triceps, and biceps). Compared to the last time I did Muscle Rounds for these body parts (when I left the gym quite frustrated), I was able to pick more appropriate weights this time. When I found that my form was already dipping on the exercises, I didn’t think twice anymore and just quickly stepped down the weights a bit for the next set. Overall, I was satisfied with my workout today.
I am saddened about Brian‘s accident, which I learned about while reading Adam’s blog. It was only yesterday that I had wrote about keeping proper exercise form to avoid injury and thus keep us moving toward our goals. Proper exercise form is something that we can control. However, accidents outside the gym can still happen, and so I can only pray that we and our loved ones all be kept safe from harm. I will be keeping Brian (and his wife Vicki) in my prayers for a speedy recovery, and that he may come back with even more determination.
Till tomorrow, my friends, keep safe and keep Shredding!
