This month I adjusted my workout routine. In the past, I was lifting about 13,000 pounds every morning for a cumulative of over 250,000 pounds per month. Now I’m lifting only 8,940 pounds each workout and only going a few days a week — sometimes skipping three to four days for rest in between workouts.
By exercising two or three days and then resting two or three days, I am able to have several days of recovery time. According to my body analysis scale, this process helps increase muscle mass by avoiding ongoing muscle breakdown.
Another aspect of having a more flexible and casual workout routine is that I can place a higher priority on sleep and if there’s a morning when I’m short on sleep, instead of waking at 5M to get to the gym early, I can sleep in a bit and make sure I’m fully rested.
As far as wellness metrics and outcomes, sleep seems to be more critical than exercise if given a choice.
Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
