Sometimes You Need a Break

Sometimes the body is just too beat up to keep getting "under the bar".

I'm at that stage right now so I'm going lighter than normal and using more bodyweight, bands and med balls.

I'm also still doing complexes with various objects using light to moderate weights - these feel great and don't beat me up as badly as deadlifting 400 - 500 lbs on a regular basis!

This is where YOU become the master of your own body.

This also takes SERIOUS discipline. As a combat athlete, all we ever wnat to do is smash through pain barriers and refuse to quit.

Training smarter will outdo those who ONLY train harder!

So when you're feeling the need to back off a bit then go with the flow and see what your body wants and follow suit.

Maybe it's bodyweight only, maybe it's a long walk through the park dragging only a light sled.

Maybe it's a circuit at the local playground, who knows, only You know!

You'll come back stronger and in better shape than you were before! Those who continue to push when their body says not to will end up injured, bruised and beaten.

Master your body, and while doing so always strive to master the mind. When both mind and body work together you transform yourself into a much more deadly weapon!

You're not so deadly when you're always exhausted, are you?

Dedicated to your success,

Your right, at that level, you become master of your own body. I had a training session similart to that today--could've gone heavier, but why? Tomorrow's the heavy day--save it for that. Just focus on grooves.
