This morning was my second workout after my Thailand vacation. I’m somewhat making a big deal out of this because that 24+ hour flight back home really had an impact on me. I’ve never experienced jet lag prior to this. None the less, I’m happy to be back in the gym hitting it hard.
Today was chest day but I also threw in triceps and some legs. That may seem a little crazy especially since I hit a little quads yesterday. But as I mentioned in yesterday’s 1st Post Vacation blog post, I lost the most size in my legs while on vacation. I wasn’t able to do any heavy leg exercises.

I can already tell my strength is increasing. I know it’s only been two days back in the gym. But I felt better today than yesterday. A big part of that is me simply eating more food to build back up.
I weighed myself this morning and I’m about 10 lbs down. I may have lost a little muscle but I more than likely lost more body fat. Despite my indulgence in Thai food, we walked around constantly in Thailand.
Tomorrow’s my actual leg day. I’ll be focusing more on volume so there will be a ton of sets and reps.
Train with Passion,
