Beautiful day here in Madrid, sun out… blue skies… that feeling of Spring is up in the air!

To celebrate I went and hit some chest and arms today in the gym. Throughout work today I was feeling really up for the session however today really was one of those days that I just don’t even feel like writing about.

Had an extremely poor session and ended up not hitting the reps and weights I wanted to in the bench press.
And just to put the sherry on top I dropped a 36kg dumbbell on my feet, still not entirely sure on the final damage but it is swollen and not looking great (tempted to post a photo of it but it is looking utterly disgusting…).

In all honesty I do feel that today’s session may have been somewhat impacted with the slight modification to my peri workout nutrition specially the pre-workout meal – reduced carbs and upped the fats. Although I felt lack of the initial energy I did feel that as the session went on my energy was actually quite constant throughout as opposed to an usual decline that I get towards the end of the sessions. Anyway I still decided to end my session today after arms and leave abs for another day mainly due to the pain my foot was in.

Tomorrow is meant to be a rest day however I am considering attempting to do some HIIT and Abs – feet permitting obviously. Hopefully a few pain killers and I will be able to get some sleep.

Hope you all had a cracking start to the week!
