So, I was traveling on biz this week and was just balls to the wall. I couldn’t get to a gym other than the hotel’s “fitness center” which only had cardio equipment, so I did 3 days of early AM fasted cardio.
I thought about how much I’ve read that a week off from lifting a few times a year is supposed to be good for you.
I feel like SHIT! My hams are tight as logs, my back is stiff (I can chalk that up to flight/car time), my shoulder is killing me, and my forearms and hands feel arthritic.
To top it off, Wifee says I look like I lost weight— NOOOOOO!!
My God, does a constant workout routine mask all this stuff?
If resting is supposed to be good for you, I’m starting to doubt I’m ever going to actually plan on doing it.
