If You Are Comfortable, You Are Going Backwards…

I am two weeks into my winter bulk up and I am already starting to go heavy.

I have already benched 275 lbs and today I deadlifted 405 for 2.

Of course I plan on lifting much heavier, but it’s still a pretty good start for me.

I’ve noticed that in the last several years, I have been taking my time working up to the heavy weights.  I will start light in the Fall and then slowly progress to heavy weights in the Winter and Spring.

This year I have decided to jump right in.

Considering that I have over 20 years of lifting experience, I trust that my body can make the quick adjustment to heavy power lifting.  To be honest, I need to stop babying myself.

Being comfortable or going with the flow, doesn’t work for me.

If I stick with a job, relationship or work out routine that isn’t showing results; I need to make a quick change immediately.

Several years ago, I stayed in a job for way too long.  I was underpaid, under worked, and underappreciated. When I finally got the nerve to leave, I ended up jumping 2 jobs in 3 years and I increased my salary by almost 50%.

As I look back on the several years that I wasn’t really pushing myself, I realized that it’s a waste of time.

And I don’t have years to waste.

Whether its having children, deadlifting 600 or starting a business.

If you are going to do it, then do it.

You might not realize it, but if you are doing any type of “maintenance’ you are actually slowly going backwards.

Take the words maintenance out of your mouth, that is for losers.

It is time to turn up the heat and I am feeling motivated.
