DAY 121: Strong lifts and calluses

callus

Overly manly hands.

I have rough hands. Very rough hands. Hands tested by iron, through many years of doing pull ups. As such, I have a lot of calluses on my hands. And it seems like I’m gonna have even more because I’m starting to focus more on lifting. I have made up a training plan for myself this holiday and it looks like this.

There are two versions as currently I am not taking any Muay Thai lessons due to my busy traveling schedule. But I’ll be back.

What is the korean judo dumbbell training? Well, I was impressed by this video:

Watch from: 3:00 till 3:30

Judo practitioners always have this really buffed physique. Why not incorporate their training regime into mine? I thought.

Im gonna put these into good use
