Deload Week is Over

Last week was my deload week. In other words, the weight and frequency dropped a fair amount to allow my body to rest and fully recover. To be completely honest, I have never heard of such a week before I started my program, but it was fantastic.

Of course, it was a little weird not really pushing myself in the gym, but my energy and passion to get stronger have recovered greatly. Yesterday, I started a new week of strength training, and it was awesome. While being hard, I noticed myself more eager to get through the movements and just in a happier mood.

I did some searching and I guess several people particularly dislike deload week, and I get it. It’s a week of rest and it almost feels like you are cheating on your fitness goals. However, I now think it is an essential part to have not just for the physical aspects, but for the mental as well.

I got this: Muscle Box

I got this: Muscle Box

Before we begin, I just want to say that I am not sponsored at all by this company. I’m just a fan sharing the cool things I bought.

One of my hobbies is weightlifting. Something about lifting heavy stuff only to be able to lift more heavy stuff really makes me happy. Anyway, Because of this hobby of mine, I thought it would be neat to start a box subscription. Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to start one for a while, but there really was not one in which I would probably enjoy the contents of each month, or one that was not above $50. Anyway, this subscription box, is called Muscle Box. Sounds so “Bro-sciency” in my opinion. However, the contents are pretty nice.

This month, the box had:20181115_233113

  • Shirt
  • 2 meat sticks
  • Water bottle
  • Protein chips
  • Workout

This seems to be the trend of the box where it would contain clothing, protein, something to have in the gym, and a workout routine. All of these things are definitely usable and not really fad-like or for just one particular type of person which is why I like this subscription.
