Yesterday was one of the worst days I’ve had in a while, just felt so down didn’t want to leave my room. So I took my mt09 up a mountain for a coffee to clear my head (still not my z1000- but it’s just as fun!) I got home still down and sad I knew I should get out of the house and do something to take my mind off my troubles but I just didn’t want to. I made another coffee, put in my headphones and made myself walk up to the gym, just get there and see what happens, baby steps-also remembering I have a goal of being able to do a pull up with 50kg attached.
Once I was at the gym I started my warm up and then smashed out a heavy chest session. As I’m working on my pull-up goal I do a ‘heavy back day’ but I also pick one other day a week where I will do another 150 pull-ups with another body part- either chest or legs and just super set them into the workout.
I do 6 x 20 reps and 2 x 15reps.
This is me at the end of my session with my last set of 15 reps, was feeling good so just went to failure.
Im glad I went to Gym, even though I really really didn’t want to, I had fun, and felt much better afterwards.
I’m posting this video for 2 reasons.
1. Anyone else who is having some difficulties or stress, problems take yourself to the gym, go outside for a walk or a run or call a friend and chat- don’t isolate yourself and lock yourself away, like I used to, get out enjoy life.
2. This is motivation for me, I’m making everyone know that I want to be able to do a pull up with 50kg attached and this will keep me accountable for my goal.
