Never skip gym on a Monday
I hope you’ve had a great weekend, mine was filled with gym, long walks, shopping, good food, and fun times with friends and family 🙂
I always say to never skip gym on a Monday, and it’s something I really stick to myself as well. I manage my workouts so that Mondays never become a rest day. There are many reasons to this, but mostly I just really like the feeling of starting the week with a great workout. Normally during the weekend we tend to place a few cheat meals, a bit of wine, and just indulging in all kinds of things – and rightfully so! But then just more reason to make Monday a big gym session day. You feel like you sweat out all the naughty from the weekend, and you also feel like you’re starting the week off on the right note, no matter what. I think you set the standard on Monday for how the rest of the week will be, and you want your week to be active and healthy, right?
You might be tired and low on motivation on a Monday, it can feel tough to get back to your daily routine if you strayed too much from it during the weekend. This is however something I try not to do too much. Although I might “cheat” during a weekend, I wont go crazy and eat crap all the time and stop working out. The weekends are great for working out as well, you have more time and you can take advantage of an upcoming cheat meal by doing a hardcore gym session (Leg day and cheat day go great together, trust me!)
Today I did shoulders (same routine as last time if you wanna know how my workout was. But I did 4 sets instead of 3 as I had more time on my hands.) and finished off with 15 minute intervals on the treadmill. I felt super heavy and slow, probably because I went to the gym later in the day and also because I didn’t do intervals for a couple of days now. But when you feel like you’re not up for it at all, it’s usually when you actually need it the most.
What did you work out today?
