Last night was a rough workout for me…. as many of you know if you’ve been here for a while, my workouts don’t focus on solely the physical development of strength aspect but largely on the mental toughness aspect and pushing myself to greater heights.
Last night started with about 10 sets of snatches. My body felt like it was on “empty” from the get go. Once I finished my snatches, I told one of my coaches that it’s time for me to crank a “mental toughness” workout. Once I finished that first set of deadlifts I felt as if ALL my energy was sucked out.
Those are the times where you must push through…..
Overall, I was unsatisfied with this performance, the workout should have been completed in half the time, all sets and reps unbroken. BUT….. This is LIFE.
What if you have to go for a day without eating and at the end of the day you encounter a physical confrontation? This is why we say, “Train for LIFE!”
