The Biggest Derailer?


#1

What shit happens to you that derails your training the most?


#2

Pinched a nerve in my hand in September, workers comp won't allow me to work out because apparently now I need surgery.

GF broke up with me

Got fired from my job


#3

My pillows.


#4

Getting a rush job in and having to apply all my time and energy on it until completed.


#5

Pretty much just injuries. Most other stuff, breakups, being super busy, etc, just makes me want/need to lift more.


#6

Funny people say this. I always found my training gets worse with the emergence of a relationship. Not the other way around.


#7

Exams
submitting peer review publications
relationships (both starting and ending but more so starting)

and most certainly injuries


#8

A years working holiday in Australia was the first event that seriously derailed my training. Some hard graft while working in farms helped me retain a little muscle though.

The second one was when my dad died. Although I managed to squeeze a few sessions in during that time. Helped take my mind of things.


#9

Injuries are my biggest derailer (did something to my hammy playing hockey and it just never healed right .. sometimes I aggravate it and can't squat or DL for a few weeks)

Then responsibilities like school and work deadlines; familial obligations and the like

MONEY

Lack of actual routine in my life

Assignments

Wierd shifts at work

Mood


#14

Definitely this. The only thing that holds me back is getting hurt or something just not feeling right. Begin away from the gym for a week (business trip, etc) makes me want to go back.


#15

This.

Women/relationships kill my training potential.


#16

I have too many injuries to list...many here can verify

Get your bitches in line dude.


#18

depression.
