After busy week I am back writing. Trained six times last week – 3 workouts and 3 drill sessions – feel good and strong.

You should always have plan B – I was taught this long time ago. But recently, I realized that plan B suck because it detracts you from your big plan. Your original idea. The goal that you really wanted.
Life and lifting, they are the same. Many lifters start a program and already in their mind believe they will “try” it for a few weeks and if the`re not benching 140kg and deadlifting 220kg they will move to the next secret program. I`ve had these thoughts myself. Plan A first, then, ok, I`ll do plan B if the first thing doesn`t work. Huge mistake. We all lose focus. We all think plan B is ok if plan A doesn`t happen. That`s the problem. Stop bothering with plan B. Don`t stray from your gut instincts. Don`t let yourself or others avoid the work so they can have stuff. Everything is to be earned. Strength – muscle – business success – life success – unless you work for it, you will not respect it. M
