Day 5: Weights – Shoulders, Traps & Abs, Cardio: 20 Min Sprint Intervals

Today was the first tough day, initially physically from when I got up until I got home after work. I threw on my gym gear, sat in front of the tv for an hour and watched Futurama followed by The Simpsons. Now here is where the mentally tough part kicked in, another Simpsons about to start, I’m sleepy, tired, and my legs are absolutely shot from last night. Glutes in particular are painful. The easiest thing in the world would be to not go, some people watch a motivational video or find a good motivational post on a social network, I don’t….not this early into the programme. This is the first of many motivation challenges I will have to face to complete out this programme. Don’t use motivational vids or social media posts to give you motivation, only use them to give you MORE motivation, become mentally strong in yourself. F**k it, I’m going!

Total Workout Time: 1 hr 11 minutes

In doing this I don’t necessarily need to burn out my legs, and leg day is coming at me fast tomorrow. I choose to complete my Continue reading
