Training on the Road
I hear all the time about people not being able to find a gym because they are going on vacation. I hate to break it to you, but there are gyms everywhere. The key is to find one than is forward thinking enough to have a squat rack. I am in Shelby, NC, a small town about 35 miles west of Charlotte. They have a Planet Fitness and a small gym called ProFitness. I didnt go into Planet Fitness. Instead, I ventured in ProFitness. Two squat racks, plenty of iron and dumbells.
Ten bucks later I was squatting, and had one of my best training sessions in a long time. My son took some pics. He is 11 and had a blast playing photographer!
All About Being a Lifer
What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a year...it's for life. Whether its training or your family or your job...it doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
