Here’s me (a few days ago) failing to complete even 1 rep of a weight I’ve previously lifted twice for two sets.
I, like most people on here, have a tendency to only post lifts when things are going well. When I’m able to lift the weight and reps that I was hoping to achieve that day. That’s why I posted my squat and deadlift records from this day, but not my bench press.
However, I’ve been thinking about this, and my intentions are NOT to make it seem like every single workout is going super well and that I’m always at the top of my game. Although I’m in a pretty good period right now where I feel like I’m getting a lot of progress in most of my lifts, the reality is that I also have days where I can’t hit my numbers at all.
Actually my bench have been standing still/going down for a couple of weeks now (this actually isn’t even that long of a time in the big picture). I try not to, but to be honest, I get quite frustrated/mad/annoyed when that happens (I think @lassk95 can confirm this hahah😇), because I SO badly want to improve from every single workout to the next.
Buuuuut, progress is not a straight upward curve (truth hurts😢). Everyone has bad days when things aren’t going exactly the way they want to.
I always remind my clients of this when they have a bad day at the gym(etc.), but sometimes I really have to remind myself as well. We are still killing it.🔥💪🏻🙌🏻. @entirebodyno #entirebody
