Lifting has been a bit of an on and off journey over the last 2 years for me. Injury, flare ups, life circumstances all finding their ways to throw me out of routine. For a while I wasn’t even sure if I had interest in continuing lifting at all. I tried other modalities of movement, knowing I still needed that type of nourishment for my mind, body, and soul. While I did find different ways to satisfy those needs, I have found that nothing quite satisfies me the way that lifting does, and being strong truly is a lifelong asset that I don’t want to lose sight of. (My biggest life ambition is to be a cool Grandma – one that is still truly LIVING well into her 80s and even 90s – and I know that taking care of my physical body NOW is vital in order to make that dream a reality.)
This summer I made it my mission to get back into lifting, but I wanted to do it without looming pressure of the way it needed to look based off of how my previous training had been. I didn’t want to even feel too beat up, I didn’t want to worry about the weight on the bar, I didn’t even want to think too deeply on my physique. I wanted to enjoy the movement above all else. I wanted to be able to focus on being IN my body, fixated on deepening the mind-to-muscle connection. I grew to enjoy my training sessions again, which prompted a sigh of relief after struggling with so much resentment towards lifting over the last couple years.
Here enters what I’m dubbing “building momentum” – a program for those who resonate with similar discrepancies and are wanting to stick their foot back in the door.
