Today this bar was my enemy. •
Today i have never felt so defeated by the bar. •
Today I tried to deadlift 35kg, a weight i used to once warm up with, in the hope of gauging my progress. •
Today I have never felt so far away from where I once was. •
Today I realised I hadn’t progressed as much as I had hoped as I felt the same heart wrenching pain from the ache in my lower back. •
Today I sobbed to myself whilst doing hammer curls in the mirror, whilst thinking i don’t want to be doing this and of what i’d give to just be able to Olympic lift again.
Today I was very close to just saying ‘Screw it’ and was questioning why this was happening to me? Why now? •
Injury rehab is a roller coaster journey, just like training; Progression isn’t linear and it’s a difficult road to follow. And right now, once again, i’m finding it hard to believe i’ll be back to where I once was 💔#injury #rehab #longroad #journey #training #lifterproblems #gymlife #theonlywayisup
