Day 11: Shoulders

After three good days in the gym, my body was just not ready to go for this workout.  Each weight felt like it had ten pounds added onto it.  I was fighting everything but that’s how it goes in the gym on some days.  The important thing is to get in there, spend some time, and rep out every set that you can.  It’s not going to be easy, and you’ll constantly be thinking about quitting, but getting through to the end is a small accomplishment that can fill you with pride.  Knowing your one workout closer to achieving your vision is what keeps you going.
