Mental weakness … a gym killer!

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Well been pushing hard at the gym for the last month or so, swore of alcohol as well. Saw some good strength gains. In most areas. Push up a decent 180kg bench. But when I went to do it again, my minded failed me. So since then I’ve been off.

Last night I couldn’t even put up 140kg for reps, I got sweaty in the palms and mentally weak. Have to take a few days off to get it right in the head.

Did do a 1RM max video of 160kg though, on that day pulled a 230kg dead-lift as well. Most I’ve ever gotten off the ground. Used straps and started at 200kg as well …
