i work away a fair bit, and as a result miss out on some serious gym routine....recently 2 and a half weeks with no 'muscle strain'. it's easy to get stuck in a rut.... but then when u take a break from a routine, no matter what it is, and re-visit that place, it's strange how it all feels so much better the next time around! I'm still sore from my recent visits, and yes, the guys at my gym all all so far up themselves they can smell tomorrows shit! but the overall result to me is the fact that this morning, 2 older guys from work commented on my physique, which quite amazed me as they are both straight and just wanted to point it out!
I suppose that what i'm saying is that it's human nature to get into a 'groove' and stay there, but when u lift yourself up again, boy, life takes a turn in a whole new direction.
