The holidays are great for spending time with friends and family, watching football on TV, and eating Christmas cookies. But, all these things make it hard to get your workouts in… and if you do get them in, it’s hard to be focused. On top of the holidays, here in the mid-west we’ve been getting blasted by inclement weather (snowing about every 5 days and wind chills around the -30 mark).
I’m proud of my brother Zack and I this year. We weren’t able to stick exactly to our normal schedule, but we were able to get in 3-4 workouts a week over the holiday-season. But we haven’t just been ‘getting them in’, we’ve been working hard. We’ve been keeping the goal in mind; which right now is a powerlifting meet in March. We’ve even kept the intensity up after New Years, when our gym was bombarded by idiots that have no idea how to lift or even run on treadmill.
Now the holidays are gone – the weather is not – but it’s time to take the training to the next level. I’m extremely happy with what we’ve done so far, training for this meet; but now it’s time to take it up just another notch.
