Busy week and weekend this week and missed my blog post entry on Saturday morning. A lot of socializing and looking for new cars this week made my weekend feel very short. I loved my Audi TT, but the maintenance costs were very annoying and costly. I didn’t see this car being a good idea long term at all. Basically the older the car got the more issues I saw it causing me. I found a Honda CRV, which is apparently the best of the best when it comes to reliability and affordability. It also has a sunroof, all wheel drive and most importantly more room than just two seats.
Recovery and motivation has been an issue here recently, so I took 3 days off in a row and ate whatever I wanted. I can say motivation is back already. I really just needed a break. I barely walked besides going to social events and didn’t lift at all Thursday – Saturday. I picked back up on Sunday with a minimalist upper body workout and felt really good. I’m thinking an every other day lifting plan is in order. I also think the extra calories helped a lot with energy and filling my muscles out.
I also may switch back to the progressive overload template versus trying to get a ton of volume. This is because the volume is burning me out and I want my workouts to have a purpose again. Meaning I want to go in to my workouts feeling fresh and looking to set records again and get my strength up. Since I will lift every other day, this will be 4 workouts each week.
Going to make this post short this week, but will try to get it more detailed next week, when I’m hopefully less busy and more organized with training and diet.
