How to build a workout program with your demanding day job? #5ProTips

When I was a student at the university, it is easier to be consistent with my workout program. It was lots of learning and trial and error to find the sweet spot of fitness. I had tried body-building, running, obstacle course racing and finally I found powerlifting. I was all in into Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. After I graduated, I begin to work. I have to say the work is demanding. At times, I need to work late and out of a business trip. It workout routine was all mess up.

Lifting life Challenges.

Then, I got married to my beautiful wife, Patrissa. Best moment ever! This situation adds expectation to manage. That is the beauty of life! Full of surprise with the roller coaster of up and down. It is very exciting. Throughout the exciting life of up and down, I never forget about my fitness goal. The year 2017 was about Spartan Race. I have completed 2 Spartan Trifecta last year. This year, the year 2018 my goal will be powerlifting.  I did not hire any coach, but I have a friend who does powerlifting whom I learn from.

10 Commandments of Powerlifting by #MarvinInspire

I started Powerlifting at the age of 21 and I was a late bloomer in the fitness arena. That period of time, I do not have a proper coach to guide this journey. A close friend of my, David Liaw was the person who introduces me to powerlifting. My source of learning was from Coach David, Uncle Google, and Sir. Youtube. I literally do not know anything about Powerlifting that I even Squat on the Smith Machine most of the time. It was indeed a bad option to stick to Smith Machine almost every workout. I had the assumption that it was just the same as free weight squat. I learn from my mistake and move forward.

The Kuching Powerlifting Meet was held on the 6 January 2018.  I was inspired by David Liaw who is also my coach.  He was the first one to sign up.
