Hello readers. I am going to try to keep my post short this week. I did arms today and I am not kidding when I say it hurts to even lift them up to type. I know at some point I mentioned that I do try to get to the gym at least 3 times a week, every week. I was also doing at home ab videos before I got sick, which I intend to start back up again. However, recently I was getting sick and tired of going to the gym and not knowing what to do.
I almost always frequent the gym with one of my friends. Not only is this a great way to feel less lonely during gym time, it is also a great motivator to actually go and to kick up that competitive edge…at least in my case. The downside is that usually, my friend relies on me to come up with a workout plan. Not anymore!
I have been taking classes with the trainer at the gym for a few weeks and I loved them. Sure they are intense and I wondered what the hell I was doing to myself at first, but I stuck with it because I loved the idea of this new challenge. I loved it so much that I actually got him to write a personalized workout plan for the both of us. It is a full workout plan including chest and triceps, back and biceps, and finally shoulders and legs. Let me tell you, I hope it is working because this pain better not be for nothing.
That being said, because I have been doing a more strenuous workout, does anybody have any great tips for either recovery meals or drinks. I don’t like the idea of taking supplements, aside from my daily vitamin of course. I do like that sore feeling you get the next morning signifying a good workout, but I also want to make sure that my body is getting the necessary replenishment it needs to cut down on that 2-3 day type soreness. Trust me when I say I am open to suggestions!
