Not sappy, I know just what you mean.
Lately, all I think about is getting stronger, and pushing more weight. Do another set at top weight. Push a couple more rest pause reps. Pull one more dead, you can do it.
Thats not a middle age crisis hitting. Thats just me wanting to challenge myself to get better, and not settle for a Planet Fitness attitude.
I want to scream loud, and breathe heavy with a loaded bar on my back, or hanging from my hands. I want more weight overhead, and I want to push it clean.
Luckily for me, I'm wasted from this weeks work, or I would be back out in the garage screwing around.
