Walked into the gym today feeling like I had zero energy, absolutely nothing to give, like I wanted to curl up in a ball in the office and sleep for the next few days. Therefore, the following confuses me - I’m not entirely sure what happened but somehow I ended up being an epic heavy leg session, smashing PBs on 4 of 6 exercises. BOOM. Smashed PB on leg press - 400kg for 10 baaaaaaaby! My aim is to one day fill up the whole spindle…and then after that have the need for people to sit on top of it…now THAT would be pretty cool.
Before that were squats (shite at squats so the following is less exciting..) where I hit my PB of 75kg for 10. Followed by walking lunges with 50kg then one of my favourites - the very painful leg extensions with 60kg for 12. What came over me in those moments I just don’t know…but whatever it was, it felt awesome.
It all just goes to show, you don’t always have to feel like you’re going to take over the world heading into your workout…just get it done and you never know, it could be the best one yet. Don’t wait for the perfect feeling, the perfect energy level, the perfect motivation. These come up once in a blue moon so if you wait around for them then you’ll never get anywhere, I can assure you. Go in there and get it done no matter what, especially on the days where you can’t be arsed - getting through those are the ones that make the difference. It’s easy to walk into the gym and train hard when you feel really up for it…but it’s when you can’t be bothered and power through regardless…THAT’S when you’re unstoppable.
So here’s what occured this fine Friday morning (big thanks to Tony McLean for the spotting/shouting/plate loading):
Oh my those pictures come out rather big…hey ho.
P.s. my bum hurts. That is all.
