      Those pictures of the town by the lake are absolutely gorgeous.

      Nice going with the exercises... You do so many of them! I feel lazy, because my workouts only consist of 4 or 5 different exercises

        60s Rest
        22x Plié Squats --> 200% shoulder width, arms sideways extended, weight on balls of feet, heels raised.

          Thanks, JCU 😊
          Thanks, GentleOx you shouldn't feel lazy (I certainly couldn't lift and squat what you do) we just train differently - I get bored quickly when I do the same exercises all the time 😅​​

                      I'm just catching up on other people's threads so I'm a bit late to the party. However, if you're still having trouble with your shoulders, you could consider this workout. If you filter the workouts to Wellness, there is a number of other rehab-type workouts you could try, too.

                      And to add to the whole weighing issue - unless you're trying to get to a specific weight in order to get into a weight category for something, in my view, weekly weighing is sufficient, so long as it is done at a consistent time. I prefer to use a tape measure because that tells me where the gains and losses actually are.

                          I was unbelievably tired after the Muay Thai training and I slept 3 hours in the afternoon. Afterward, I wasn't at home and had to work.
                          The main reason I skipped my "small" challenges was that I didn't do my wake-up fitness session where I usually do them because the training was scheduled at noon and I didn't want to work out before.
                          But honestly, I don't feel bad at all because I have an active lifestyle anyway and the Muay Thai training was though 😅

                              --> the workout of today had a focus on the legs and tomorrow I have Muay Thai so I didn't want to do additional leg work - I will likely do a superset on Tuesday with all the missed challenge days.
