same... been told i need to go back to the US; am doing half days at work this week then off the next. muay thai buddy left a week ago who i have taken 99% of my classes with (often us being the only two in class) - i've been good at keeping up at muay thai, but the gym... done like lazy half days. power outage on the island today so no day, got a bit more loose with my diet as well. i've literally had a super solid routine for months (no days off, all food tracked in excel) but some definite disruptions now!Stepping back in this thread for some motivation
I've kind of fallen off track the last 3 weeks or so. My job has me going back to the office, so adjusting to that, has kind of screwed up my routine. I've only been getting to the gym one or two times per week, and I'm playing hockey one night a week. I'm off work this week, so plan to be in the gym as much as I can while I'm free.
A lot of things go in to deadlifting correctly. Ankle and hip mobility, hamstring and glute flexibility, ability to brace your lats and your core correctly, belly vs chest breathing, they all matter.So been deadlifting once a week the last few weeks. Not a lift I like as I really see it as a way to screw your back up so been taking it slow. Started with 12 reps of just the bar last night. Mainly check form is the goal. Then added 25lb plate to each side and did 10. Then followed with a set of 8. Switched out to 45s and did 6. Pretty happy with the set..... Move to next lift and some short little girl is deadlifting with 25s and a 10.
I laughed and told my son she's trying to show me up. He laughed and said well shes short she only has to move it a few inches...lol We had a good laugh over it...
