“There’s always 5 more reps.”
- Tom Platz
You go to your limit, your body is ready to quit, that’s all you have in the tank - there’s still 5 more reps. You do 5 more; and there’s still 5 more in there. There’s always 5 more reps.
I paraphrase. But he also says, “make your genetics a victim to YOU!”
This is more of a thought of the day, and less an article with quantifiable takeaways. Essentially, on average we quit LONG before we're close to finished. In a set, or in life, when you start thinking "this is too much" is right around the time you begin exerting effort. According to Navy Seals, when you start thinking "there is nothing left" is when you are about 40% tapped into your potential exertion.
There's always 5 more reps.
