Fitness Magick

I am over 60 years old and do weight lifting exercises at the gym regularly. I have modified my diet to be healthier overall, but still enjoy some cheat days/treat days (so while I have trimmed the midsection from what it was, I might not get the six-pack abs ideal that some want). I carry a talisman/sigil of Zadkiel and also Gabriel in my pocket at the gym. Sometimes when I feel the need for a little more energy for the next set of reps, I take the two (kept on a keychain but not the same keychain as car keys) out of my pocket for a few seconds to gaze at them.
I recommend not training the same body parts with weights two days in a row. Take at least a day off in-between to allow for recovery/hypertrophy response. I always do a warmup circuit set with significantly lighter weights and more reps. And before doing that, I do 1/4 mile on the treadmill at a brisk walking pace to get the body revved up a bit. But don’t overdo treadmill before weight training as it will deplete the glycogen stores in your body. I drink whey protein before, during, after workout. It is readily and quickly absorbed. I also drink a supplement called Pre-JYM before each workout (especially formulated by Dr. Jim Stoppani).
Trying to get more consistent this year with yoga and martial arts also.

Cheat days are AWESOME!!! I’d literally eat whatever the hell I want but didn’t go over board. Cheesecake, greasy ass burgers, home baked desserts, greasiest chinese in the area. But always kept soda to a minimum shit is evil but tastses so good lol. My cheat days were Thursday and sunday. If you can stick with home baked desserts nothing in a box. If you love the box stuff learn to make it at home. Ive been baking since I was 8-9 and its so therapeutic I feel like an alchemist making something from bits and pieces.

It is a fact, that you have to experience strict dieting and junk food avoidance for a while to truly appreciate cheat days.
