"All of the countless hours you have put in training yourself to react to the bar automatically goes out the window once your mind takes over and you begin to think. Not thinking is difficult to do because we use our brains everyday to live...Get out of your head and do not guide the lift. Relax and allow your body to do what you have trained it to do. You have automatized yourself in training to lift with confidence, relaxation, and with a positive attitude...React only to the bar aggressively and your body will remember what you have trained it to do."
- Donny Shankle
Today was a big day in my gym. I think everyone lifting this morning took a PR. It was a really good day.
With the wise words of Donny Shankle ringing in my ear, I got a 3rm pr in the squat of 110kg and got a 1rm pr of 117kg.
Tonight I sleep in skins and wake to chase those deads in the morning.
What have you got?
