my body plays tricks on me sometimes . .
it’s got this kind of revenge tactic with the weights . .
The other week i push pressed with the 40 pounds . . we were friends . . we had a good time . . it used me, i used him . .
then the following week . . the 40’s were refusing to go up!! they would NOT get up there . . at all! freakin pissed me off BIG TIME!
I did it LAST WEEK .. what the hell is going on here body!!
So the OTHER day . . i didn’t talk to the 40’s at all and went straight for the 45’s . . YES YES YES . . that’s when it all happened . .
The room was spinning . . the eyes were a bit dazy . . the lights in the gym were flickering (that’s most likely due to them not paying the electricity bill) . . game face on and we were rockin & rollin!!
They tell you to “listen to your body” . . if i listened to my body . . it would be sitting on the fuckin couch downing a pack of corona’s . .
my body is ALWAYS sore . . ALWAYS tired . .
It’s about not being a kitty cat. . getting in there and showing who’s boss around here . .
and as for my mind . . yeee it tells me i can’t do it . . that i can’t lift this weight over my head . . that’s it’s impossible to squat with this much on the bar . . that i can’t possibly do another rep . .
and my body is reciprocating the response my brain is giving it. . it’s shaking . . it’s struggling . . it’s breaking down . . it’s giving up . . but i REFUSE to let gravity kick my ass . . that weight is going up if i have to crane drive the fucker up in the air!!
That’s what it’s all about . . REFUSING to let anything beat you . .
Get ANGRY . . get PISSED!!
Eventually . . your brain will learn to give in . . to work in sync with you . . it will know it has to recruit every fibre of your being to shift this weight from A to B . .
You gotta have that mentality that you’re either IN or you’re OUT . . you got to be prepared for the worst but ready for the best . .
Comfortable means it’s too easy . . if you’re still lookin pretty by the end of it you didn’t do shit!
You choose TODAY whether you succeed by a little or a lot . .
And who the hell wants to succeed by a little?
