Today was not a great day in the gym. I felt like someone injected me with leukemia and the gods turned their back on me. Despite a pretty decent level of fitness for my age, my one rep squat max has diminished to a pathetic 185 lbs. Truly awful.
This is a result of both inconsistency in training and lack of good nutrition, specifically enough calories. But it’s a temporary state. It will change because I want it to. I need to change because I don’t like being unready for the end of days.
There’s more bleakness and horror in the world now than I can remember in my lifetime. It has to be crushed. It has to be defeated. The stronger you are, the harder you are to kill. You’re more useful. You can help others. It’s worth getting stronger.
