Today, something strange happened; I didn't feel like training again, for the second day in a row. This for me is particularly uncommon. I remember well that when I was finding my feet with fitness that this was actually quite common, but in the last half a decade or more, I can probably count the times this has happened on one hand. Sounds crazy doesn't it, but I genuinely believe that by turning up when you don't feel like it, you find the days you don't feel like it become much less common! Regardless, today was not like yesterday, I didn't need rest, I just needed to get on and train. So I did. I was at a military gym, but managed to get a decent session in that took under 40 minutes. I trained around 5pm.
4x8 45, 50, 55, 55kg
10 Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 20kg
10 Chest Supported Dumbbell Row 20kg
Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 40kg - 4
*Important note: my focus on both of these movements is range of motion - the hands descend below the chest in the press, and rise above it during the row. These are NOT ego lifts!
6 Strict Pull-Ups
6 Ring Push-Ups
I used the equipment available today, but as always if you want to purchase through my link for Bulldog Gear, just click the banner below, and use TH5 to save.
Pretty solid today, although I did have to snack on the go. I stuck with the plan pretty well though, so not all is lost.
I ate breakfast at 7am, which was bacon, 4 scrambled eggs, and avocado.
At 2pm I had mince topped with cheddar.
At 7pm I had 2 boiled eggs, a pre-packed cheese portion and a small bag of salted cashews.
At 8:30pm I had 2 chicken legs topped with cheese, followed by grapes, yoghurt and honey.
In spite of not feeling it today, I'm glad I trained and got some reps in the bank for Mountain Murph. Nothing I did today was crazy in terms of volume, load, or intensity, but was enough to work up a sweat and make me feel better. Whether my mojo returns tomorrow or not remains to be seen, but regardless, I'll be training!
