Week 6|Day Two

Yesterday night, I was up to no good smashing pizza and drinking alcohol with peers, and so I figured today’s workout wouldn’t be as efficient because of my choices. I did however, found a way to work around the lack of sleep I had in order to do the load amount and meet my rep requirement and that was to take everything slow. While deadlifts and squats are meant to powerful, I had to really use a slower eccentric movement because going at my normal pace wasn’t going to happen with having alcohol in my body the previous night and not getting much sleep. While I don’t regret making my poor decisions the previous night, I knew I had to deal with the consequences and make the most of my workout no matter what it took because when you make decisions; good or bad, you learn to deal with whatever comes your way the best that you can – that’s what I did. I left the gym later than I normally would but I did the reps and met the load.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

  1. Damn your dedicated you never make accuse excuses. When I drink, I ain’t working for a month lol it’s that bad.
    As always I respect your work effort.
    This workout is intense
    I never heard of Good Morning.
    But damn, the way you workout, they need to have you as a stunt double for the “Avengers Infinity War” movie in may. You definitely would make the cut. But keep up the good work

    1. Goodmornings work the hamstrings 🙂 there is two different variations that I am aware of and I like them to implement with supersets a lot on leg day 🙂
      Also, thank you, I like to think I fairly dedicated. Hah I actually love superheros movies! so that would be pretty dope!
