24/11/2018, 7.30pm at Evolving Physiques: The EP Summer Challenge began!
I wasn't planning on doing this challenge, as I was going to focus on PDCS Christmas Showcase and get back into weights in the New Year, however a good old chat with Pat made me realise there was no time like the present and so I jumped straight in.
I'm actually four weeks into my challenge now (sorry for late blog posts) and PDCS Christmas Showcase has finished for 2018 (head over to Pole Dancing to read all about it) so I can really throw myself into my weights training again.
Once again, the focus is on building muscle in my arms, as I lost a lot of my muscle on my European holiday and I really want it back. I am dreaming of a 100kg deadlift for 4reps this program, but my arms are the main focus.
So, off we go on another weights journey. Keep your eyes and ears open and watch this space for updates.
While scrolling through Facebook several days ago, I came across some wisdom from Evolving Physiques owners and my weight trainers: Pat and Hilal. One of the things Pat and Hilal love to do is share their perspective on training and their own journeys with us; it's one of the (many thousands of incredible) things that makes them such great trainers: they never stop and they practice what they preach. They believe in continuing to learn and grow in their training as they push us to learn and grow in ours (and, no, I don't talk about Pat and Hilal too much - they're amazing and, if you ever have the privilege of meeting them, you will want to tell everybody about them too!)
So, what was their wisdom in regards to the oft spoken about 'Comfort Zone'? Have a look below:
The Comfort Zone.
Now tends to be the time of year that people start thinking about their 'summer bod', but a fad diet and crash exercise regime might get you in shape for summer, but it won't give you the lasting results you desire. Wouldn't it be nice to have your summer body all year round?
Then take a leap out of that comfort zone!
You don't find the willpower - you create it.
Me With No Apologies.
