I wanted to reduce my meat intake but I couldn’t just cut meat out; as an amateur bodybuilder I need my protein to help me hit my goals. Plus, we’re a household that loves our steak so the chance of us giving it up entirely was very slim indeed!
I’ve recently had to schedule in a six week break from the gym, under strict orders of no training and only light cardio. The prospective of giving up the gym for any amount of time was terrifying. In the past four years the most I’ve taken off the gym is 10 days, so six weeks seemed like forever!
