Getting Emotional About My Weight

Monday, January 28, 2013

My current strength training program has me working in cycles where each cycle is one month. I only do the same rep scheme for the same exercise once per month. Since I'm currently on my second cycle, I have something to compare against. I have a terrible memory, so I don't remember how many reps I did or even the weight from last month. I've discovered that I don't care to look either. I get the impression that if I know how much weight was on the bar last time, I'll either slack once I surpass the reps from last time or I'll psych myself out so I don't hit more reps this month and get all butt hurt.

So there, men do get emotional about their weight. emoticon

    Ha! Great title on this blog! Somehow I suspected it might just be the tiniest bit misleading... but I was wrong! Crafty play on words. Try not to get too emotional about your weight. Remember, it's just a number; it doesn't define who you are. Hang in there...we're all here for you!

    That's not fair. I was all excited when I saw the title of your blog and thought I'd get to read a dramatic emotional outpouring. I feel robbed, man. Robbed.

    Interesting concept I think I may try doing this.

    I have a terrible memory too, but a lot of it comes from not paying attention. And well, old age. emoticon

If that works for you then you should do it. Hopefully your trainer is keeping track so you will know your progress someday!

Good for you, stay with it!!

    LOL. It would definitely be interesting, though, to compare a year's worth of data and see it getting bigger :)
