day 1509 – power tool

today was my plyo focus day so here i was deloading but accelerating. it was pretty empty at the hour i went so i made good use of it and took up as much space as i possibly could. the power that i used to rip the olympic bar caused scrapes and bruises on my shin. that was a very satisfying session as i unlocked the fear that bands are over my head. clearly i had nothing to fear and my power game is able to handle it

day 1119 – demeanour

sometimes when you get comfortable seeing something you forget to appreciate the little things that surround you. taking things for granted happens; it happens with things, it happens with people. i guess i can’t be too bothered because a good day at the gym cancels it out and also makes up for my last subpar performance. i am happy i made new ground today and i know there’s more to come. once again, it reminds me pr’s are meant to be broken, limits are meant to be surpassed and goals are meant to be reached

day 863 – depot run

flashback to getting my pipe roller from home depot. i bet the clerk was very suspicious of what this girl is building with pieces of pvc pipe. i go out of my way to doing what i need for maintenance. going to the gym is one of the absolute worst time to forget my phone and that’s exactly what happened today. i felt so lost and naked because i don’t have my headphones and music to get me through the grueling demands. but what needs to be done must be done

day 521 – another roller

giving up my foam roller because i have no need for it anymore when i have this baby. upgrading from the soft stuff to the hard stuff was a necessary change because it simply wasn’t serving me well anymore. now i can get my stuff done consistently and rely on this to work its magic and stay somewhat unknotted. this pvc pipe should last me a long while before my body gets immune to this and then i’d probably have to look at metal spikes of some sort

day 456 – breaking new ground

image

lack of action picture so here’s what my kinesiologist claimed as his awesome water bottle. feeling accomplished i am able to take my rehab execises up to next level after patiently working at the same level for a few months. it helps being trained and constantly pushed to take steps breaking into new ground and greater difficulty with each exercise. and now i need to keep my lifting consistent and work my way back to the weights i was capable of during my peak form. i am eager and feeling determined to pick it up and break into more new territory very soon
