One movement back to rocket forward….

That rush…

Not to slam through to a PB, not to get as many reps in as possible, but one that builds, that starts to tick, that generates momentum and drives you along for hours.

Yes, that magic feeling is back. The one I had often spoke about where the rush of an early morning training session would provide enough of a springboard that would propel me through my day.

With that however, was the acknowledge that the adrenaline wouldn’t propel to where I was in March 2020.

I was weeks away from the opening comp of the year, in the flow and building towards the season.

Whether the following was significant or not I can’t tell, but a few days ago, I took a look at my stats for my last week before the lockdown 1st – I was happy at those at the time. But that is where they will remain, in March 2020.

Now, I can lament bad luck, or timing with all this and worry about playing catch up, but it will take time to get the flow back and to build again in a way that accessible equipment at the gym can now provide.

In addition, not wishing to injury myself, I took the relatively easy decision to take the weight right back & focus on the environment of where au train, get the feeling of the barbell set again and set my intention for the year.

There is time to build and create anew. Create a physique from more time & gain clarity about the direction you want to go in. Collaborate more with the people you want to connect with and build the momentum toward it further…it could be the start of something great!!
