(It’s people like you that) fuel my fire

I’ll join in the song lyrics as title game for now.

I’m off to a cracker. Started a new training program today. Didn’t expect it to be quite as full on as it was. Any question of intensity was gone.

This may not look like much on paper but give it a go 3 x 6 (rest 10 secs in between and 90 at the end)
(3a) Renegade row – alternating
(3b) T push-up – alternating
(3c) Wood chop
My shoulders, abs and chest were trying there best to talk me out of it. Got a few looks and one guy remarked that I train harder than most blokes in the gym. Thought to myself, not hard, but took the compliment graciously.
Strange thing is after about 5 minutes of finishing a session like this I forget how hard it felt. Does this mean I could’ve gone harder? Not certain but don’t think so.

Onto a cracker with recovery too. Straight into an espom bath when I got home.
Now to eat the tasty dinner my boy has made.
