A Quickie but a Goodie

Training session #3 for the week. I'm shooting for 4. I need to increase my weekly volume if I want to lose more weight. Today's volume was 36,600 lbs.

1 Arm Inverted Rows - 6 minutes
Left - 60 reps, Right - 60 reps

Swings - 160 lbs. - 12 minutes
180 reps = 28,800 lbs.

When I reflect on today's training, I'm very pleased that I got in that much volume. I was feeling pretty apathetic about training. I didn't let that stop me. I had the time carved out, so I went and did it anyway. I did the drills that tested best, and, of course, I felt great after finishing.

That, my friends, is the beauty of gym movement. If you follow your body, it will lead you to better. Yes. It is as simple as that.

I'm kind of dreading the day swings don't test well. My volume will drop significantly unless I am able to do another big lift like deadlift or cleans. Oh well. It will happen.

Love it Amy, keep moving forward.

I tell myself sometimes too "If I just go to the gym, the weights will lift themselves."
