I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did my usual of getting my workouts in and watched the UFC heavy weight title fight. I'm a fan of Dos Santos so I was happy to see him win. I've also been playing the new Call of Duty MW3 and I love it! If you have ps3 add me on PSN my screen name is tydavin615. This will be my second week of my cutting process. There are some adjustments to my nutrition and workouts. I am really excited to see the outcome of all of this hard work!
One thing I wanted to touch on that I've spoke about before is being mentally present during your workouts. The power of the mind is incredible when training. Your mind will always start to give out before your muscles will. ALWAYS before sets take a few deep breathes and give yourself a pep talk. Some things I always say to myself is "How bad do you want this" "Your not going to get anywhere being weak" "you got this..this is light". I had to help out some power lifters in between my sets to hold a board for them as they were doing their bench presses. They were pressing anywhere from 600 to over 700lb after I would see that my leg presses didn't feel so heavy. So don't let your mind play tricks on you and tell you that you can't or you need to stop because of the pain towards the end of the set. Pushing through that pain is what will push your body to a new level that you thought was not achievable.
In my last leg workout I did I finished them off with fst-7 on the hack squats. Give it a try in your next leg workout..it was brutal. I used 2 plates on each
7 total sets for 10 reps with 1 minute break in between each set.
