Get It Here: http://bit.ly/2jv78CW Body Weight Workouts - Is the barbell your enemy? As you may have heard I just turned 40-years old.
A lot of my friends and family are giving me black cards implying that turning 40 is similar to a funeral.
I take it all in good fun and I can roll with the punches, but in the back of my mind I do have to admit that sometimes I feel like the barbell is my enemy. It's a love-hate relationship. I have felt my best and strongest lifting heavy weights and I don't plan on ever giving it up completely.
However I've been lifting weights for over 25-years now and I'm starting to feel it in my back and joints at times. As a fitness pro what I'm about to tell you is a bit embarrassing.
Lately it has been getting harder and harder to get jacked up or motivated for my workouts. I’m only human and I know this is something we all go through from time to time.
This is why I have given myself permission to take a break from the heavy weights without losing any of my hard earned gains. In fact, when I go back to the weights I'll be stronger than before.
You can do it too if you're feel the desire to change things up.
