Anvil or Hammer


What’s my modivation for this scene?

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on September 29, 2007

I did my two hours yesterday. Despite feeling more energized than worn down by my workout the day before, I was feeling it yesterday. I wasn’t sore but I was exhausted. I felt I had no drive what so ever, to lift.

Clean -> Front Squat – > Jerk X 5
40K, 50K, 60K, 70K, 80K

Squat
60K X 3
100K X 3
120K X 3
130K X 1
130K 3 X 3

Jerk
100K X 0
60K X 5
80K 3 X 3

At this point I had spent nearly and hour and a half in the gym and I was tired. I was thinking, “Maybe I’ll just hit some curls and go home.” Then Big Rick, a long time powerlifter, asked me if I wanted to do some circuits with him. Me being me, why not?

As you can see, I was kind playing with the weights the whole time. I underestimated what I was capable of while Rick overestimated. I think that if I hadn’t been so worn down, I would have stayed right in with Rick, who was going heavier than me but dropped out at the end.

This fine morning, we played an hour of tennis. Laura likes tennis and I need to get out and move around on Saturdays or I start to get real tight for Sunday.
