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.
