day 2286 – baby steps

stepped foot into the gym or any sports facility for the first time since the freak incident last monday. i may seem crazy to many, but as long as i can limp, i wanted to do this. i didn’t do any lower body exercises, and everything i did was done seated or off the foot. i also didn’t use any barbell or any weights that i’m used to. i do see and feel progress but it’s slower than i’d like. i limped in with no expectation and left happy because it felt so good just to be back in any kind of action

day 1894 – gym dates

keeping the gym going on through the thanksgiving long weekend. working mainly on my upper body push pull exercises. taken on a challenge with my friends to to get swole and make gains in the next ninety days. i’m pretty set on my goal to cut weight, improve body composition and make those abs more visible. this will be a big test of determination, but i can’t allow any limitations make me lose sight of any of my goals

day 1639 – bench some


lactic acid setting in but i’ll get cold showers after going ham second straight day. getting ready for the weekend away and bracing myself for the copious amount of food and liquor that’ll be served. it’s that kind of day to work on benching and rowing, something that my hand needs to readjust to. glad to see that i can still do pullups as i work back after such a long stretch

day 1514 Рperspiration 

my glutes are in extreme soreness and overall body is tired after a workout and coaching session. i forget how much i have to demonstrate when sifu is there. so sore i was in limbo to go workout or not. in the end i went because the blueberry muffin devoured earlier needed to be justified; won’t let myself eat without having exercised. in transition between my program; the increased urgency is the cause of more sweat

day 913 – off limits

i had to stay away from legs exercises all week long because of my shin issues, today was no exception. it hasn’t allowed me to walk or drive properly, let alone handle any lower body exercises – trust me, i was crazy enough to try. a couple days of inactivity and so called rest, and i’m sad to say my legs are still off limit. i still got to do what i got to do, so i guess today is yet another upper body day. i’m almost begging my shins to heal up so i can go about my business
