330lbs x 15 reps
I dropped the weight substantially, in hopes of getting 20+ reps. There was more in there at 15; but I let fear end the set. Fail. BUT I didn’t get hurt; so I can come after it again next week.
Fear and perception play a vital role in fitness. What people think of as possible or impossible dictates outcomes. A lot of people are weak because they believe lifting is unsafe or hard or fill-in-the-blank-here. A lot of lifters are weak because they believe a certain range or loading or form is unsafe. All of us are not as strong as we could be because of belief about the “limit” or the fear we’re at the limit.
If you can’t wrap your head around a certain strength performance, you will never even approach it. When you do go for it, fear may still cut you off. If so, the good news is you lived to fight another day.
