Intensity.

u either haz it. Or u do not.

I had intensity that day.

The last few months I have NOT had. it.  I’ve been pretty spread thin as far as working on my other various coaching projects and responsibilities.  The good news is that this extra push is reflected in the club.  We have more numbers and are stronger than ever as a team.  This whole thing is my baby.  Every day I drive into work thinking about ways to make it bigger, how I can give more to help everyone get better.

Unfortunately, this extra push has not left a lot of energy for my own training.  It’s been harder than ever to follow my own advice.

I picked the meet at Warriorz last weekend for myself because I knew it would be smaller and a good opportunity to keep my skills sharp even if I wasn’t at top strength.  I took my taper week VERY seriously.  The most I hit last week was 130/155 respectively and very slow crappy reps at that.  But I knew if I was going to have a good showing my main priorities would be sleep and time to myself.  I knew if I had those two things I could at least put together a decent total.

It turns out I had the meet of my life.  I weighed an all time low of 102.4.  And I hit 148/185. All PRs at this bodyweight and an all time PR total.

I’m going to take this next week to heal my body and focus on more business stuff I’ve been neglecting going into the meet (there’s always something I’m neglecting).

The team competes in Reno this weekend.  I can tell you they are all very fired up to get out there.

I drew a line on my chest signifying (to myself) that these were do or die attempts and I was all in . . . also Predator is one of my favorite movies.
