Draper here… Good Plans Go Unattended
It’s summertime in the land of the free in case you’re setting your watch. It’s that time of year when life is most abundant and hardworking folks want, need and seek a vacation, a break from the norm to rediscover the beauty that surrounds yet escapes them… to relax and bask in the goodness and joy, the excitement and inspiration that encompasses yet eludes them.
May I be so bold as to ask what kind of shape you’re in as you prepare this break from your norm?
Good plans, though enacted dutifully, sometimes don’t work, suggesting they were not very good plans in the first place. And some good plans work better than expected. Everything falls in place; we’re encouraged, we’re inspired. They were very good plans, indeed. Take notes, worthy student teacher.
The important question is, “What are you going to do now?”
The summer season is a different animal altogether and calls for a different training approach. There are vacationing vacationers, long holiday weekends, hot lazy days, crowded byways and highways, family off in opposite directions, visiting guests and just plain good ole summer stuff.
I recommend three workouts a week with a less intensity for good reasons:
> One day the summer of 2019 will be a memory. We want it to be an excellent one.
Choose five exercises from the iron heap and complete five sets of each
— okay, you can do four — of enough reps, generally six to 10 and as many as 20 to 30 for triceps or core work. Superset or not, do whatever feels right.
Gotta go… which reminds me: As next week is Fourth of July week, we’ll celebrate the grand holiday with you
Blast on, firecrackers… dd
