Lots of unwanted disruptions this week. Did today's strength and conditioning session by the creek under the stars – in solitude. Strength + stress-relief was exactly what I needed. I always feel mentally stronger with an old-school approach. #strength #strengthandconditioning #stressrelief #stressfree #exercise #workout #athlete #outdoors #outdoorexercise #active #activelifestyle #health
There is no good time for disruptions, but sometimes it seems as if an evil fairy arranges for them to occur at the worst possible moments. It’s been a week full of disruptions (and it’s only Thursday!), so tonight the last thing I felt like doing was commuting and having to interact with other people in the gym in order to get my strength and conditioning training done.
Fortunately, I’ve been working on a program which emphasises body-weight exercises, and I’m now able to chin and pull my own body-weight (albeit not very many times.) So I really needed very little in the way of equipment – just some bars for pull-ups and dips, and a bench for back extensions and box jumps.
