Well, my upper left leg injury is feeling really good this week. Feeling way better after decided to take a gym hiatus. I vowed to take a full month off lifting completely for the month of Dec. and ’cause of that all minor injuries seem to be gone.
My upper left leg is no longer feeling pain and no cramps after standing a long time, hip has gotten better and no longer feeling left-shoulder weakness so it’s all looking good. I’m still gonna take this week off the gym to give them even more time and I maybe good enough to start going back to the gym next week.
I’ve also been battling a nasty sinus infection for over a week and feeling better with that today.
Ugggh, gym setbacks suck but I’ve had them before. I think I’ll be good enough to go back to the gym next week to go back to some serious lifting on both bodybuilding and powerlifting ’cause I miss that.
Like I said before, it’s okay to take time off from the gym only if you’re either injured or sick. You can’t take time off just because you want to. If you’re injured gotta stop training ’cause working out through an injury is not gonna make it better.
I’ll probably go back to the gym next week, we’ll see. Goal for the gym in 2020 is to keep going through a full year without getting injured and I’ll be careful next time.
I want to go back to powerlifting training. Go back to heavy lifting on the big three: bench, squat and deadlift. Hope my numbers on those three lifts didn’t go down but if they did, oh well. I’ll go back training a lot harder than ever before! I’ll build my “pr’s” back up in 2020.
