“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! 🙂
