Home workout done
Got in my first deadlift session on my new home gym set up. I think I’m going to like not driving, parking and waiting in lines for equipment to get my workouts done.
New Deadlift Personal Record
I picked 315 pounds off the floor this morning, 15 more than my last PR.
Keep the Fire Burning
I heard a good analogy for diet and fitness recently and it goes like this:
Think of your body like a fire. You want to keep the fire burning hot all day. The foods you eat are what fuels the fire. You don’t want to put little leaves and twigs (chips and cookies) on it, because it won’t stay lit and will never get hot. And you don’t want to put big, wet logs (large meals) on it either, because they’ll put it out. You want to put decent sized logs (healthy, natural foods) on it frequently throughout the day.
And think of working out like chopping wood and stoking the fire. You have to stoke the fire every now and then, to make sure it has air and can breathe. And you have to chop wood so you’ll have something to put on the fire.
And if the fire goes out, just light it back up the next day. But no matter what, always try to keep it burning.
