No, it’s not the 1 Rep Max…it’s beyond the set, beyond a single session, but something which sits right at the heart of the journey.
In The Daily Stoic, Ryan Holiday offers us a great insight into Seneca’s teaching of being tested and understanding our own capacity and inner strength.
Within that it unpicks the notion of facing difficulty and as a result discovering what capacity and strength that lies within. BUT how would you have known that without experiencing the difficulties, the set backs, the bumps in the road?
This is also helping me prepare ahead, do we know the full extent of what we are capable of now? Probably not, we have had challenges, we will have more. I’ve been trying more recently to take in those moments that were difficult and learn a little more each time.
