Workout Summary: 10.21.16

Had a really excellent workout today. Trainer Nick was pulling out a lot of old-school exercises we haven’t done in a while. My weight tolerance was way down and I felt a bit wimpy but I had to remind myself that I haven’t done these guys in a long time and it’s to be expected.

There’s a possibility in the near future of getting a hold of some boxing gloves and training pads and having a throwdown workout. Also working on hitting up my friend for some taekwondo lessons. Hells yeah! I’m moving in the direction of fewer machines and more real-world exercises, which are great for having a well-rounded system that’s up for anything.
