Many of you have heard me respond to your failed lift with “you never planned on completing that rep.” I generally don’t get any push back on that. We both know you didn’t go for it. You wanted it. But not really. You didn’t sacrifice anything for it. You didn’t commit mentally and therefore there was no hope of you breaking a physical barrier. None. It starts in our head. Your brain tells you a lot of stuff. When it comes to obstacles your brain is an EFFING LIAR! Not all of the time, but a lot of the time. It’s too heavy, too far, too long, too fast, you’re too tired, too short, too bla bla bla. Make a decision. Before you even touch the bar. Decide what is going to happen next. I know what I would choose. I can’t choose for you. Once you decide what you want to do I can certainly help you put the right pieces in place but it starts with your decision. Winning? New personal record? No bands for pull ups? Bigger snatch? Fewer breaks? Faster mile? Choose. Put you game face on. And then let’s do some work.
