If it's Monday then it's Snatches.

wanted to do a bit more than the 134 reps I did last week. The 53 is feeling light again and thats a great thing. Been awhile. So much of strength is mental, how you think about a task and how you think about yourself. I had been thinking of myself as a strength-endurance trainer and was hoping to get as lean as possible and re-develop my "go all day" mentality.

Then I started feeling weaker for the first time since I started this journey in January of this year.SO I upped my proteins and my calories a little and started thinking about BEING strong, not just enduring. Almost overnight my lifts went up and the weights started feeling lighter in my hands,always a sure sign your strength is up.

I have to remember that endurance, like speed, is created in the crucible of strength. Just keep my bodyweight where it should be and get about getting stronger. Just have to modulate intensities and volume so I dont get ahead of myself and get hurt.
