So, months ago I’ve injured my shoulder and arm, nothing TOO serious, mind you …
BUT still, it was annoying to the point I couldn’t train like I wanted to, and exercises were painful. What did I do? I kept on working out…
So I’ve thought: “Well, this is going to stay with me for a while, how do I approach this? I sure as hell don’t wanna lose my progress.”
I then decided to undertake a LESS demanding workout routine, consisted of a mix of rehab exercises (stretch, mobility ecc..)
WHILE keeping the strength part challenging (maintenance) with the focus on not worsening my injury.
Can you see what i’m trying to say?
I formulated a plan in order for me to not have excuses and be complacent, an actionable plan, based off my situation.
I didn’t think “Oh well, now I can’t train anymore” – that would’ve been an easy, poor EXCUSE.
I could’ve just given up and stay on the sofa all day, eating chips & watching Netflix…
But i didn’t.
Your mind WILL do everything to avoid doing hard things, will YOU let it win this battle?
