Remember that one time when I talked about how everybody hates Tuesdays? Well, I would like to temporarily retract that statement, or at least have this particular Tuesday exempt from such a statement.
Normally, Tuesday is my rest day. However, when your friend/coach casually mentions the night before that tomorrow’s workout has deadlifts, which you haven’t done in a hot minute, sometimes things need to be rearranged. You know, for the greater good (gains).
In all truth, I probably should have taken a rest day as today was my 7th day in a row working out, and recovery is just as important to making progress as training is. I repeat: recovery is important and necessary. I don’t really have a good excuse other than I wanted to deadlift (…do as I say and not as I do). So I went to the gym at 7AM to lift things off the floor…and even had time to make coffee beforehand! You go, Tuesday!
