Even when you don’t want to

This week I have not really felt like going to the gym due to just feeling out of it for various reasons. However I am 3/3 and still got myself in there and did lackluster workouts but workouts all the same.  I have found that above all else, consistency is the most important aspect of any health regimen.  If you are constantly rotating on and off fancy diet plans or the latest fad in exercise you are unlikely to have long term success.

My bi/tri session today went ok.  I actually did some bodyweight dips today which used to be a tricep mainstay.  Because of my left shoulder problems they have been too painful to do consistently for awhile.  My first set was a little wonky but I found if I tried to keep my upper body more vertical instead of pitched forward it kept the shoulder discomfort to a minimum.  I only did slow sets of 12 but it’s better than nothing.
