    Working out tired

    I, and my crew, have been removing two very large snow falls yesterday and today off homes and apts walks and drives (hope we get as much soon and roof shovelling starts $$$$$$). Tons of snow shovelled. Deeply worn muscles with back, shoulders, and arms aching dully.

    Any thoughts on working out when exhausted? I'm leaving in a half hour for class, so I'll soon experience it and I know I'll be skipping pushups and don't get that fucking jumprope anywhere near me.

    Depends on how 'tired' you are, you may be asking for injury.
    We old guys aren't young anymore, so don't try to go your hardest if you do decide to train.
    Stay away from maximum exertion.

    You're kidding right?

    If you're just sore, then don't whine. If you're injured, you shouldn't be training.

    make sure you stretch before you shovel, I shoveled last winter and really hurt my back. You could work out but maybe tone it down a little.

    Snow shoveling and heart attacks go well together for the overweight, high bp, middle-age crowd.

    Especially if you are sedentary or unaccustomed to heavy lifts.

    ...something a company commander mumbled many years ago...it was getting dark after a long work day (about 16 hours). He called a formation which everyone assumed was to dismiss us for the evening. Instead he gave everyone five minutes to return in PT gear for a 5 mile run. Why? Because that's the difference between Marines and others. When others are ready to go home because they are tired, Marines will go the extra mile (or five miles, as the case was). That whole training cycle was much the same...extra PT when you are already exhausted.

    There is also a saying in our dojo. When two equal guys go at it, one will eventually tire and give in. Never be that one who gives in.

    So...training when you are exhausted from shovelling a few tons of snow is no different. It is the difference between the average and the champion. Now go put on your snow gi and train like a man!

    Drink some allsport or some other carbonated electrolyte drink. If you need a little boost, drink a cup of coffee, or take some ripped fuel and/or some sublingual dimethylglycine.

    I've trained exhausted many times. It's hard to get started, and tough to keep going. You can make yourself puke if you work on it hard enough.

    Too many people take the tough it out and keep going attitude and don't rest their injuries.
