Tough training and I hold my ‘basic level’ and needed thereby more time for the whole workout…..

Today it was a hard session for me. I was tough to hold my ‘basic’ level with the weights, reps and sets. Mostly through a very tired ‘brain’ and this cost me a lot of energy. Nevertheless I’m focused to my ‘comeback’ on the platform on 21st of May. Last Friday went pretty well and this give me the confidence I will lift ‘good’ within my current possibilities. Therefor it is important to hold myself back and listen to what I feel…. So today I did what I wanted to do and took more rest between the sets and this session lasted 120 minutes instead of 90 minutes. At the end I felt I had some more energy during the bench press, so I added 5kg to the 3-in-1 sets compared with last week Monday 🙂
