Stepping Back To Move Forward
I "spoke" (via FB) to a couple of friends who do Olympic weight lifting and they have suggested that I lift at 80 - 90% of my max. This is how they train each time they lift ... they only test their 1RM once every 3 months which makes sense to me. I think, for me, I need to focus on success rather than failures.
On the positive note, my failed attempt today was the best one yet ... I was so close I could taste it. It was also pretty frustrated as I was there, I should have stuck the lift. It's all good though, my lifting didn't feel too bad and I'm trying to get all those little movements right.
