Push myself towards my limits adding some of my willpower…..

Although my mind is not working like I want. The battery is not charging fully on…. So today I needed (more) willpower…… and it help me to push me towards my limits….. With squats I was able to squat 5×3 130kg (instead of 5×3 125kg last week) in 4 minutes and with bench press I pressed 5×3 105kg (instead of 100kg last week) also in 4 minutes. Shoulder grip I did 5×3 90kg (instead of 85kg last week) < 3 minutes 🙂 Because I pushed myself today I know I have to do a step backwards tomorrow. The reason of this session is that I know my weekly ‘normal’ powerlifting session on Friday will be harder. And I know this will give me a mentally boost to get focused for the meet of May 21th 😉

On my statement I had the following reaction: Do you just need as much willpower as real power? Like today my willpower generates my focus and still focus on my technique my real power is able to execute the exercise.

You can make the next sums:
Willpower + technique = generates more realpower (in the end)
Willpower + less technique = generates less realpower (in the end)
Willpower + realpower + technique = generates the most kilograms (in the end)
Willpower + realpower + less (poor) technique = generates less kilograms (in the end)

So yes willpower (Mental Flexibility) is the step to success followed by technique………
