How’s your day going?

Hello! Just checking in to see how you all are doing and tell you a little bit about what’s going on in my world. Today should be day three of my new workout plan, however unfortunately I got really sick out of nowhere yesterday so I was unable to workout. Picking back up today though with two minutes of pushups and situps, a five mile run and some pullups to finish it off. And just 5 days until I have to upload my after pics to bodybuilding.com for the MP Back to the Grind challenge. Hopefully I can see some difference!

My tablet decided to die on me this morning and after trying unsuccessfully to revive it I have spent much of the morning trying to get my very old very cranky computer to work. Success at last and here I am typing this post ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully it keeps working haha!

I’ll be putting up a few more posts today with links to Gym Tyme’s new products! Stay posted!


New Workout Plan!

How is everyone today? I started a new workout plan yesterday based off a 90 day preparation for Ranger school. If you are just going to the gym every day without a plan or just with a specific muscle group in mind, I highly suggest finding a multi-week plan. It really gives you something to look forward to and a means of tracking your progress.

Yesterday morning I did chest and yesterday evening I did some reps of dead lifts, shoulder presses, front squats, back squats, and bench presses to determine my 1 rep max for each exercise. Now that I have assessed where I am, I am looking forward to improving myself.

Today’s agenda is pushups, situps, pullups, and a 5 mile run. Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

More to follow, this is a three month plan ๐Ÿ™‚

Y the Y?

When I first started thinking up this blog, I used Y in Tyme because I thought it was clever to make it match Gym. Then the word ‘inspyre’ came to mind for a daily inspiration, and then I thought, ‘why not make that a trend, Gym Tyme’s unique stamp? Then I started thinking of other words I could make unique.
Then I started thinking more in depth into the meaning of it all. The movie ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ also came to mind. I did a little research on the movie on why they spelled it that way. It symbolizes a lot. And as the question was posed in the movie, why is it the ‘pursuit’ of happiness? Is it something that you always are striving for but may never achieve?
I don’t think that it’s impossible to achieve your goals, but it is always something you are striving for. Even when you attain one goal, you start on a new one. I believe as far as Gym Tyme goesย the Y symbolizes that we are not perfect, but that is what makes us unique. The difference between you and the next person is that you are getting off the couch and going out there and doing whatever it takes to get what you want.
Let’s start the Y movement across America, across the world. Ask yourself, Y do I do what I do? Because when you know Y you do something, that Y will give you courage to keep plugging along when you feel like giving up.
Know Y you want to make a change for the better, then do it!
Satisfaction leads to complacency, complacency leads to normalcy, and normalcy leads to nothing.
