Hail! It has been a bit slow on Viking Muscle for the last few weeks, but for good reason…
Over the last few weeks I have been running around frantically trying to finalize a long term work contract, get a work visa, and sell everything I own before moving to Stockholm. It has been crazy to say the least.
Today marks my first month since landing in Nordic. I have had a few weeks to begin adaptation to the new way of life, the language and the culture. I will begin to write posts on some of the incredible differences there are in the fitness habits of the Swedes, as I feel we could all take a lesson in the fact that they are one of the fittest nations on the planet.
During this relocation process, the diet and exercise regimen have been a low priority. But life goes on, sometime you need to indulge. I find that after a few weeks off, I want to come back and focuses harder, diet better, and lift heavier!
It has been a great experience thus far, I feel re-energized in my fitness goals for the year. Gyms are everywhere, Stockholm is bike friendly, and there is a very active community involved in sports and recreational fitness to keep me motivated.
Stay tuned Vikings.
