Last night, I downloaded Tom Venuto’s first ever podcast from BodybuildingSecrets.com, where Tom interviewed Pete Siegel about turning mind power into muscle power. I listened to it while driving to and from work, and then completed it just as I finished driving to the gym. It gave me a boost at the gym, and I was thinking “warrior” as I breezed through my Stronglifts 5X5 workout consisting of 5 sets of 5 reps of squats (85kg), bench presses (60kg), and hang cleans (45kg). On all of them, I successfully increased the weight by 2.5kg from my previous workout while maintaining good form. They actually felt easier than I expected today! I also did 3 sets of pushups to failure, and though I did not set a 1-set record, I was able to increase my 3-set total by 2 for a total of 111.
Nutrition was good all day, all according to plan, with lots of fruit thrown in.
Eat clean, train hard, and expect success!
