Today was a serious workout day. I started with a workout with Trevor at 11. We’ve been focusing on fixing the basics: posture, shoulders, knee movement, and muscles around the spine. As I’m preparing myself to compete in a body building competition, I need to make sure my body can handle the kind of weight I’ll need to lift to build serious muscle. I’ve been working out for eight years and these workouts with Trevor have been different than anything I’ve ever done before. First, he’s totally awesome and knows more about human physiology than anyone I’ve met. Second, we’ve been focused on all my little muscles that I’ve neglected for most of my life. Although the workouts are totally light weight, I struggle to push through. Yeah, it’s kind of humbling to struggle with 10 pound weights.
After working out with Trevor, I rested for a couple hours and had a heavy shoulder workout with Eddie. I can feel my strength coming back to me as I gradually overcome my injuries. It feels awesome.
This is what we did today. It felt great to shoulder press 70 lbs on the dumbbells it’s been a while since I’ve been able to do that.
