Giant pulleys

Workout Summary: 8.18.17

Now that’s a little more like it.

Worked super hard on today’s pull day. Went up in a lot of things. Even the pull-ups are starting to feel better.

Wow, this whole concentration thing is really paying off! I’ve been kind of dreading Walk Funny Day since I decided to be more present mentally because (like most people) I fucking hate leg day. But today was amazing! Like the other days, I’ve gone way up in everything and my attitude has been so much more positive!

Workout Summary: 8.7.17

Since my last workout, I’ve been thinking about motivation and dedication. I realized that I’m not really as focused as I should be at the gym. After working out for a year, I think I’m letting my attention slip and getting distracted. Not pushing myself much.

I’ve decided to focus more and really work hard. After all, I really want to change (and I pay a lot of money to train). Why not be all in?

Woah. Today’s hypertrophy walk funny day kicked my ass! And it’s not just the 95° temps with the 99% humidity, either.

On top of making sure I did everything right (it’s the first time I’ve truly understood side lunges), I looked it up and I did about 15 lbs over where I was at during the last hypertrophy cycle. Hot damn!

Here’s my summary. I’m gonna eat lunch.

Workout Summary: 6.26.17

My new trainer is all about the body weight exercises to build strength. I think that’s great because it makes exercising way more practical. The whole basis of fitness philosophies like MoveNat is that exercise for the sake of appearance is ultimately useless in the real world.

That being said, today I did more push-ups than I ever have before. I had no idea I could do so many! Also, I injured my wrist (playing guitar without warming up) so it was an extra accomplishment. I got through my whole push day workout without aggravating it further, too, which I think is amazing.
