While it seems that most average people try to find excuses not to train, the truly dedicated and disciplined hate to miss a scheduled workout. Example: a lifter I know was in a car accident on Sunday night. This person was strapped to a striker board, put in a head stabilizer and ambulanced to the ER.
After a couple of hours, this person finally got x-rays and turned out mostly okay - just whip-lashed and severely bruised from the seat belt and air bag. Could hardly move without pain though.
Monday morning at 5AM, this lifter popped a pain pill and was determined to go to the gym. We finally talked this person out of going and taking some time to heal up. “But it’s just leg day! My legs are fine!” this person said. We convinced the determined lifter to wait until Wednesday at least.
Pretty hardcore, huh? Ready for the kicker?
This person is my 5’ 2", 58 year old mother!
Iron Mom hits the squats at 5AM Wednesday.
