A thought went thru my head this morning when I was doing my early morning run before work: “If I look back on my life 20 years from now, and if there isn’t anything worth seeing, then I’m wasting my time!”
The month of July is over. Here’s our report on the goals we have set a month ago:
– 315lbs bench press: we have done one rep each at 315lbs, altho it was super hard for us, I still feel that this one needs more improvement. But I do feel that we are getting stronger in this area.
– 315lbs squat: this goal wasn’t as hard to achieve as the bench press. So now the next goal for it would be 365lbs
For this month we will concentrate on these goals:
– Deadlift 405lbs
– muscle ups (with ease)
Ever since last month, we have redesigned our whole training schedule. What we have learned is that doing 3 to 4 hours of training a day isn’t beneficial, it’s overtraining our muscles and is counter-productive. Altho as fun as it was, we have to train smarter to get better results. So now we do our cardio in the morning a few times a week, and weight training in the evening. We have also a dedicated day for calistenic training, and one day of rest (my day of rest = doing less intensive activities lol).
We have started to train smarter and I find that we are making progress. By the way, I still dislike training in the morning, I find it to be the most challenging thing to wake up and get myself moving! But I try to do what needs to be done!
Living a life on the quest to self improvement could be very tireing sometimes. At times I have to motivate myself to keep the momentum going. I seriously don’t remember a day when I have done absolutely nothing. But as tiresome as it is, I love this lifestyle!
