Today I exploded in the gym :LOL:
It's incredible how 15 days of vacation cause your performance in the gym to collapse.
The important thing is that tomorrow I can walk because then Muay Thai starts again in the evening :)

My muscles are sore from yesterday morning's gym session but it's nothing dramatic other than my dreams of doing pull-ups and push-ups together, that's now a broken dream :LOL:
Let's see how Muay Thai goes this evening :)


P.S. Yesterday the part of the gym training that went best was the 15 minute final stretching :LOL:

Hell'o Fremen,

I'm very impressed by your log and by the amoiunt of work you do.
Another good log that motivates me.
I'm jealous of your pullups, I can't do even one... or maybe one... but that's why I train my grip first...
And good job for the last challenges you completed!

Take care,

The first time I bought a wall bar to do pull-ups and I tried after assembling it I couldn't do even one :LOL:
As you have already understood, the weak point is the grip, once it is strengthened it goes downhill.

And obviously my training plans went up in smoke because I hurt my shoulder a little during the first bench press exercise in the gym :p
It doesn't hurt much, just a little discomfort, we'll see tomorrow morning.

Thank you all so much, I am always amazed by the kindness of bees :love:
The shoulder is better, arnica, massage and infrared (I'm always well equipped) are already making the pain go away.
I've learned to give myself absolute rest if I hurt myself a little so that it doesn't become a real injury.
Unfortunately I have not yet learned that if my mind is out of balance, sooner or later my body will suffer and I will hurt myself.
Maybe it's the right time that I understand that I have to take it easy in training if I'm stressed :LOL:
Thanks again everyone, you are amazing :love:

I managed to do everything I was interested in in the gym, moderating myself but that's okay :)
I will keep the 10 minutes of initial warm up and the 15 minutes or more of final stretching because they are good for me and I like things that are good for me :LOL:

Last night's Muay Thai training went well all things considered, except for the push-ups I definitely have to limit them to a minimum and do the same with the exercises that risk inflaming my poor already sore shoulder.
Today I had a nice back and neck massage (I have mechanical massagers) and infrared shoulder massage, complete care package :LOL:

There are times when I really don't feel like changing clothes to train and I don't even want to do floor exercises, so I've found a compromise that works for me (and doesn't make me sweat :LOL: ): do some mobility with everyone standing exercises :)
This is my wellness package, 14 minutes of gentle mobility and stretching:
Neck Mobility Workout (2 min)
Rotator Cuff Workout (1 min, 30 sec)
Hand Tendons (1 min, 30 sec)
Universal Warmup (5 min)
Full Body Stretch (4 min)

Minimal training today because last night the tenants downstairs didn't let us sleep, it's unnerving not to be able to sleep at home when you want to.
Later my partner who is much more socially capable than me will go and talk to them.
I came down last time at night to make them stop, a task that doesn't require social skills :LOL:
