Another day another squat. In a good way though. It is something I look forward to everyday. And to be honest the prewritten workout has really helped keep me striving for more. To keep motivated the next month I will write a week of workouts for myself before starting the week. This should push myself throughout the week rather than writing the day of or even impromptu lifting. All day''s/week's surely can get busy and tiresome. If I am not prewriting the workout then it's probable my week schedule and mind determine my training. A little tired maybe I would do less than normal. If something comes up unplanned it could make me cut my workout short. Have you experienced this? Maybe not. But to plan a week ahead maybe 2 weeks could help me in the future. Also to put a goal in mind for the month. For Squatober it is Squats. And the exciting news I heard about over the weekend is that there is a Deadcember! What?! I am going to participate in this workout as well. Think about it Aaron Asmus is the head strength coach for The University of Southern California and his squatober workout plan is FREE! He also writes the Deadcember plan. 2 month workout plan with a total of 44 workouts free! That is crazy to think about. So of course I am going to take the challenge to try and better myself as well as improving my knowledge through a professional strength trainer. Anyone wanting to join?
Aaron Asmus vs Eddie Hall. Adding a bit to yesterday's workout. I noticed a lot of times that anytime a back/bicep/tricep exercises the rep amount was always 10-15 and the dumbells always 20-30 reps. I watched a video of World's Strongest Man and multiple world record holder Eddie Hall. During a deadlift session with a full back workout he did a lot of explaining on how the proper lift should be done and how to fully achieve breaking down the many small muscle that make up the large conglomerate of muscles in the back. He said he works his tricep and biceps the same. To tear down each muscle and to maximize the fatigue he does a minimum of 10-12 reps. This way it completely tears down the muscle to rebuild and make them stronger. But while doing this to also be extremely explosive. He said to be explosive because he was also maxing most machines out completely but still a good tip for anyone that can't max a machine out. The high reps like in todays superset of rear lateral raises/hammer curls/and shrugs made complete sense. And to tear down each muscle is better than to tire out on one and not finish the others in my opinion. I am glad to learn something new every day!
Hi my name is Trever Duncan. I started Fit24 in the Summer of 2013. I have always loved fitness but have fallen away from it over the past few years (crazy to imagine having started a fitness center). Although I remain active through my various hobbies on my small property and enjoyment of moving things which has allowed me to keep my strength up to an extent. My first true fascination was running. I failed in the 5th grade on winning the mile so I decided to run everyday for a whole year. My 6th grade year I came back after self training running a 5:56 mile. My second love was wrestling which has been my favorite ever since I failed by getting cut by the 8th grade basketball team. Therefore started to wrestle. Thank God I did. I ended up winning my high schools top athlete award by my senior year and having(https://house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills03/hlrbillspdf/4178C.01.pdf). Funny how failure leads to success. And this is were I had decided to start blogging to show others sometimes the best success comes from failure or at least mine have!
