Everyone at work is annoying the hell out of me today for some reason. Just the sound of their voices when they ask me a question makes me want to punch them.
While sitting on this bullshit conference call, I decided to compare the results of my first workouts last August and my latest ones within the last two weeks. I was really surprised; I tend to sneer at “only” going up 5-10 lbs with each workout, or only adding a couple reps with the same weight, forgetting how much those few pounds add up over time.
