A bit of a rant or maybe a psa

If you don't pay attention to my warmup, recovery, and cardio work you're stupid! I feel confident i would not be hitting pr's into my forties without it. Here's another news flash, I f'n hate doing it!

Seriously, if anyone thinks I like going from a piping hot relaxing shower to a freezing cold contrast, you are out of your mind. That being said, I feel better after I do it. However, I go through a mental struggle everytime I do it. Just like with icing, rolling, warming up, etc.

I'm like a little kid being told to brush his teeth. I don't know why I don't want to do it, I just don't. The above mentioned things don't take a lot of time. There's no excuse not to do them, so I do them.

If you are not taking time to take care of the body you punish regularly lifting weights, then you're an a$$. If you don't have enough time, take some away from your training. I'm not telling you to make time. It's time you are already using. Just cut down on training and start doing recovery work. You'll feel better and more than likely perform better.

I hate my f'n treadmill too,
