This week has been exhausting thus far. My morning schedule changed up slightly and has thrown off my day to day routines. I haven’t been sleeping well, my workouts feel shitty and I am so very tired. Usually it takes me a week or two to adjust to changes in my work schedule.
And because of this, I can’t tell if my max training program is not going as well as I would have hoped due to lack of sleep, or just simplybecause I am working way too close to my 1 RM. It is probably a combination of the two. Hopefully next week I can get my body on track, and will be making some changes to my exercise program in regards to mytraining volume and intensity.
Here are this weeks good reads:
This is a piece by Mike Boyle, in which he talks about how we only have one body. With this body we have responsibilities to keep it running on all cylinders. We do not get another body, and if we have to replace any parts they never work quite the same. We can’t all be as bad ass as the six million dollar man. This is a “to the point” reminder to take care of your body, health-wise and performance-wise, this way you can live a long, happy life.

These are some great bullets to what you can do to help lose weight. The little things count, and you will see so in the piece. It ranges from everything from setting goals to why you should be eating more cayenne peppers.

For those of us who get really busy and want to maintain strength and not too sure how this article is perfect for you.

Using his eight steps, it really becomes a no brainer on how to keep strength up during the times of your life where things get out of control.
Even though this article says training for men, it is applicable to everyone for any goal. The title says men because it is an article posted on T-Nation which is predominately a testosterone filled website. It is still a worth while read for all as there are still valuable lessons to be learned here. This is all about how to set priorities, cut down your training time, but still be effective at getting results and being effective in the gym. This goes hand in hand with Cressey’s article above. After reading these, there are no more excuses to not be in the gym. And to be rather straight forward about it, now you’re just being plan lazy.
