As I might have mentioned I have managed to injure myself in the back. This has made me unable to squat or perform heavy lifts putting stress on my lower back. Obviously this is in no way optimal for my gains but I have absolutely nothing to gain from a blasphemous defeatist attitude, which is why I have gone to the gym anyway. The good thing is that my legs are ahead of the rest of the physique which means that it is not the whole world if I miss a few weeks of training there. I will still go light on the leg press and go for high intensity with higher reps. Basically I will switch my whole training to a more bodybuilding style training, with more isolation movements and lighter weights, the reason for this is to put as little pressure on the skeleton as possible. Furthermore I haven’t really been serious about my chins as of late either so this is a perfect opportunity to bring some intensity to the lats again.
In other news it is soon Christmas or Jul/Yule the ancient Pagan tradition intermixed with traditions from the modern world in addition to some Christian elements. For me Christmas means eating, gaming and going to the gym with a lot of energy, courtesy of all the sweets available at my parents house (here over Christmas). Some people associate Christmas with alcohol, but alcohol is beta as can be and not something I participate in.
Also, the last Hobbit film is out, I have not seen it yet but will probably see it in the coming weeks and will also make a video on it! For those who are unaware I am a hoouuyyge fan of Tolkien’s work so the Hobbit is a big deal to me.
In the coming week it just might be the case that I don’t make as many videos but I will try to make some at least! :).
