Neal, weekdays I do have to workout early- My wife use to massage my arms and back but now I awake 2 hours early so I use foam roller for back and lower arms, Epsom salt soak of hands 20 minutes, and Tabata Jumping jacks and Iam ready. Nutrition-Prior to foam rolling and soak of hands I have bowl of oatmeal with sprinkle of haters/jellies on it, pot of coffee(unless I do pullups and no liquid- I think it may help me squeak a 1/2 rep w/o the extra liquid weight) during workout Rockstar energy drink and afterwards 50G protein drink with PBJ. I have traded alcohol/chew addiction for grip addiction so it is fairly easy to get motivated- although I still listen to enter sandman and going the distance prior, LOL. Early evening before workout I will use tennis ball to release tightness in hands and lower arm and that has been a game changer. Hope this novel helps and if you want the vids on the tennis ball releases let me know- P.S. I love that extensor implement!!
I saw that you train super early and was wondering about your pre training ritual and nutrition. I just had a son and my only opportunity to get a full uninterrupted workout is in the morning now and I'm having a tough time acclimating. If you have some free time could you pass some advice along. Thank you in advance.
Something else I just noticed is Steve (Mobster) is the only one with more log entries than me and Chez is just a couple of pages behind. Go back a bit and it’s amazing how many folks have drifted in and out of here.
