Bad Workout ...and that's a good thing!

Today was my first rough workout on Iron. Overall felt good, just but sets of 200-300 skips with Kronos dropped to 50-100 and I was just pushing an empty bar up at one point. Bad workouts used to shake me, but now I know they're a good sign. First off, having a bad workout means you still got a workout in at all! So that's a win. And, it means you're not in the weekend warrior state. It's easy to show up once and awhile and put it all out there. But, showing up everyday means you're going to work through the bad days too.
Breaking down muscle tissue on the regular means you're going to show up feeling really weak some days, but that's what needs to happen to progress. Game on Iron!

great post ! even though im a seasoned jump roper, I have been dojng the basic jumprope sets to slowly ramp up and get in the groove. This has really helped me feel less pressured while I get into the everyday routine and not so hard on my will power. I know I can do the timed jumprope but taking it slow means my motivation is staying up and im pretty much on track! Being easy on yourself in the early part of a program is crucial!

        3 days a week of lifting is one thing...but 6 days a week for 3 months, that's where it's at. Bad and Good days alike are part of the gig! Way to power on with the right perspective!!
