Mid-year update on my 2021 workouts

I exercised 25 of the 28 weeks so far this year.

Overall, I skipped ten workouts and exerted myself 70 times at three workouts per week. I am happy with the volume of my physical effort so far.

I am looking forward to keeping this pace through the rest of the year. I will likely miss another 10-12 workouts before December because life happens! Yet, I anticipate I will exercise at least 60 more times before the end of the year.

I look forward to reaching the end of this year with my usual annual average of 120-130 workouts. Then take two weeks off at the end of the year and start again!

I love that you will never be done with exercising! I feel like crap when I don’t move at least three times a week.

Yet another leg day 🏋️

I both love and hate the leg day workouts. I love because the gains of one hour of work last for the next 48 hours. No other exercise gets you that much in return. I hate because it is incredibly hard (assuming you are not mucking around and trying to push yourself) to do swings and squats holding weights and keeping the correct form.

Facing every single Thursday feels terrible. But I suck it up hold the weights anyway. It is not that scary once I shut my mind and take the barbell onto my shoulder.
