Shhh! Be still a second?.
Feel that? That THING moving in your blood along with your heartbeat?
That?s STRENGTH. You haven?t felt it in a long time. You?ve been going through the motions. Push the weight?.pull the weight. Lift the weight. You?ve been doing it, but getting nowhere. Not really.
But now. For whatever reason. However it?s happened. Suddenly it?s easier. You don?t know why, you don?t know how, but you?re pushing that iron harder than you have for months. That same old weight ? that same sticking point ? is gone. More reps, easier breathing ? the works!
Your mind is different too. You?re happier to be under the iron ? now that you?re bending it to your will and not the other way ?round. When you?re done, you look around for more. It ended so suddenly that can?t be it for the day! One more set?.one more rep?..one more lift.
The feeling is so good that if you could?you?d do gear. You won?t, but if you could?you?d be tempted. You want that feeling to never end ? the enthusiasm, the strength. Pushing the envelope until is bursts open in a flurry of muscle and sweat. Oh yeah.
Shhh! Be still. Be silent. Feel that? That?s a new max coming soon. Very soon. Savor it, nurture it. The blow through the damn thing with a roar!
