I’m Back

I Am Back

“It’s not what happens to you that matters. It’s how you respond to what happens to you that makes a difference.”      – Zig Ziglar

Natural bodybuilding for most people is a hobby and usually a big positive in one’s life, I know for me it personally has been. However when things in your personal life get incredible stressful trying to push hard in the gym ends up adding even more. I made the decision to stop training and focus on getting my personal life in order. In the last 10 months I have changed employers and been focusing on being successful in this new opportunity. I am finally at a point where the stress is manageable and I can get back to training again.

After being away 10 months it’s like I am starting over from scratch as my strength is gone and man am I sore! I did three sets of squats for 6 reps at 135 lbs, which was super easy before, and I could barely walk the next day. I am confident my body will get back up to speed soon enough and the plan is to just build muscle and getting stronger for the next couple of years. I have no regrets with taking a break and focusing on other areas of my life, it was the right thing to do for me.

I’m excited to be back in the gym and training again! The plan is to start posting news and information again on a regular basis.

It’s good to be back! 🙂

  • Hey VG,

    Good to see you back again.
    Give it 3 months and you’ll be surprised at your progress and how much muscle memory you have.
    I’ve been dropping in from time to time to see where you’ve been, so you can imagine my shock when you posted again. I’m on another round of heavy compound moves again and have made some really good progress.
    I’ve had to drastically change my diet as I kept getting insulin crashes, depression and always sleeping. I’m now doing high fat low carb and I’ve never felt so good and so positive in my mind. I’ve also put on some good lean weight, so it can’t be bad.

    • Hey Graham,

      Good to hear from you! I agree I think it will come back pretty quick but it sure gives me an appreciation for how hard it can be for new people getting into training for the first time or after a long lay off.

      Glad to hear you are making good progress and sounds like for you low carb is much better way to go.
