My food and timing of meals for this first week will take some getting used to. I know what I should be eating, how I should be eating and when I should be eating but I just have to work it back into my life. I am hoping that by next week I will be diarising my meals and timings.
Bit of shoulder pain and referred pain when performing the burpees with the press, which meant I eventually just performed a regular burpee. I have physio tomorrow for glute/lower back issues so think I will discuss the shoulder issue. With that said, still a great first chest session and looking forward to what is to come. Please feel free to comment with your experiences, exercise and nutrition advise, links to articles etc.
