How many of you enter into the gym without a clear goal? Are you simply doing work for the sake of doing work? Just because you do the work does not mean you are adapting. If you've trained with me and your work set required 5 reps, you are expected to perform each rep to the best of your ability. Rep one should look just as great as rep 5. This requires a lot of focus. It requires a quality work mindset. This is also why if you've ever asked me "Crap, can I do that rep again?" Absolutely not. If you always get to begin again then what is the point of the work being done at all? Even on your hardest days, when will power is in the tank and you'd rather stay home, you show up to the bar (or the mats) and give yourself as much quality repetition and effort as you can. Those moments will always give you honest feedback.
Instead of beginning again and again simply stay the course. Do better. And don't do it for me. Not for society, either. Do better for you. Do better for the sweet satisfaction of mastering that task for the day. Do better for the love of striving to be better.
