In yesterday’s blog I talked about a member Dan doing some deadlifting in Monday session.

As many of them do, that blog started as me talking into my phone to save the basic description as a note.

When I checked it later the note read “squash and a squeeze Dan dudlifting”.

There’s only so much accuracy in Google’s voice to text.

But it’s wasn’t a dud lift, was it?

It was a great lift.

And, I’d say, the only dud lifts are the ones that we don’t do.

It’s easy to beat ourselves up over workouts that don’t feel as effective as others have.

Where we haven’t felt able to “give it our all”.

Even more tempting to not do the workout at all when we’re “not feeling it”.

But any exercise has value.

Firstly, for the physical benefits it brings.

Even if they’re not as much as some workouts we’ve done, it’ll still be more beneficial than zero exercise.

But also any exercise makes more exercise more likely.

One or two mediocre workouts this week will make three good ones next week much more likely than zero exercise this week would.

Remember, the only dud lift is the one that you don’t do……….

Much love,
