Its amazing how ridiculously intense the workouts are after a short break. I had a semi-busy weekend and also ended up getting a little cold. So I hadn’t lifted since Friday and today was my first day back. It was chest/tri day and the session was an absolute killer.
I did a ridiculous amount of volume. It was a higher rep session (10-15 reps) and supposed to be 3 sets and maybe a warm-up. I ended up doing 5 and sometimes 6 sets. I just didnt want to stop. Blood must have found extra reserves in my muscles because the cool down stretching I have been doing was impossible.
Over the head stretch was laughable. I could barely raise it let alone get my front delts to allow any amount of stretch. The arm across the chest stretch was ridiculous. I was lucky if I it moved 10 degrees past being extend straight out.
These are the type of workouts that get me coming back. These are the type of workouts I love and strive for. If you feel like your workouts have lost some of their excitement take a short break and recharge those batteries. I know it works wonders for me!
