Super Tuesday Upper Body Circuit

Bounced back a little since Sunday's super jetlag debachle.

No workout on Monday.

Interesting session today.

Late to bed and early to rise left me a little tired, so there was some pre-workout caffeine. I did a fun off-week upper body circuit and it gave me a great idea for the January 2016 workout.

Last night's dinner was at Ocean Prime. They have great filet mignon. Had that with a baked potato, steamed spinach, and olive oil. Thought about having some booze, but stayed CASS-Free for Monday.

The Workout

1) Maximus Pushups - 30 reps (1-1-1-1)

2) Pullups - Max reps EMOTM (every minute on the minute)

3A) DB Shrug
3B) 1-Arm Arnold Press
3C) Cable Face Pull
3D) Triceps
3E) DB Curls

3 rounds of the circuit. Good times.

Lots of weird muscle soreness, though. Lingering soreness in glutes, something that feels like a charley horse, and a continued problem with a tight right achilles (from walking too much in improper shoes).

Doing lots of mobility work and stretching to rid myself of the aches and pains so I can finish one last 3-week heavy program before year's end.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
"The failure to act is much more often the product of inner emotional resistance than external resistance. To move forward you must give up your story, whether it is excuses about your childhood, lack of education, your “bad luck,” your unsupportive family, your low metabolism, where you live, etc., etc. Do not capitulate to external resistance, AND resolve your own internal resistance.” – Dan Kennedy

Stay strong,

PS - Take a deep breath, relax, & look objectively at the battles you are fighting & wars you are waging. Most conflicts are not worth it.
