LOST & FOUND
Because we agreed that I should take some time off from heavy lifting, my trainer and I met for the first time in two weeks to slowly ease back into it.
I slide myself under the bar and prepare for my first bench press.
As expected, everything feels impossibly heavy.
I don’t even come close to hitting the weights I am used to.
So I do the only thing that I can do.
I keep going.
I keep going at a responsibly manageable load.
At the end of the week, we meet again.
I’m thrilled and overjoyed with significant progress.
Strength is a funny thing.
If you don’t use it, you loose it.
The good thing though, is that it comes back pretty quickly.
