Average Broz's words of wisdom

If you don't know who or what AverageBroz is: Average Broz’s gymnasium

Their lifters: BROZKNOWS's Channel - YouTube

Their gym coach has some some solid advice posted on their site.

Here's one about motivation,
Quote:
asked by rob1992
if an athlete were to train fairly hard several days in a row, and after that they were especially tired and weak, should they continue to train as hard as they can? or should they have a slightly easier session to allow them to recover?


Tired and weak? How do you know you're weak when you haven't gone to the gym to try yet? There are way TOOOO many days that not only myself, but other lifters would have swore up and down that they could not perform well only to find themselves setting a pr.

Here's a story that I like to tell:

When I was a young kid I had to promise my coach that I would come train everyday that the team was lifting. I literally had to beg him for 3 years to coach me. After this, I gave my word I would go in everyday no matter what. The rules were simple: show up, bring your bag/gear and lift. If you couldn't make it for some unexpected reason you had to call and let him know.

One day I was so crushed - my back was so sore that I had to kneel on the floor to brush my teeth cause bending over was too painful. There was NO WAY I could train. I called him and his reply was simple: "come here and watch. You can always learn technique and be involved." Ok, so I grabbed my bag (following the rules) and walked to the gym. After I got there I sat down to watch other lifters. As they were lifting, they all began, one at at time asking me why I wasn't training. After making up excuses for the 7th and 8th time I began to feel like such a puss. One lifter finally said "hey, why don't you just stretch with the stick. you can work technique and warm up. Might make you feel better?" Ok - so I put on my shoes and began to warm up. After about 10 min another lifter says "Hey Broz, why not come over here and do some snatches with us. We are just starting and you can jump in. surely you can do 40kg!" So here I go doing 40kg. I eventually keep doing more work up and setting a lifetime PR!!

As I was getting ready to leave the gym my coach looks at me and says "If you wait for the day to train when you feel good, you will lift about 2x/year. Those days are few and far between." As I walked home I was elated but still in shock that as horrible as I felt earlier, I actually set a PR and felt better then before I walked in the door. That was a lifelong lesson I will never forget. YOUR MIND PLAYS TRICKS ON YOU! Learn to ignore it and keep training.

Since that time I have seen that happen to hundreds of lifters, thousands of times. It just happened last Sat with a master lifter in our gym who, during warmups another master asked him if he was going to hit a big one and his response was negative. He had already determined his daily fate. I questioned him and said "how do you know? Do you have a crystal ball at home?" After about a 2 min conversation about his ability to not be able to see in the future he went on that day to set lifetime PR's in Snatch, C/J and total!

The mind of a champion is developed just like your body.

thats a tight rope to walk between pushing thru and actually hurting yourself tho. pushing thru pain caused by a slip disk probably wont result in anything but spending 6 months in bed instead of one day off. haha



that being said, a little quote i made up: "the difference between an excuse and a reason is where they come from. an excuse comes from your head, a reason comes from your body. learning the difference is what keeps you moving forward as rarely do you have a reason and more often than not its just an excuse."

+1000%

Have a cold, went to gym anyways.

Aside from dizziness at times, I killed it. OH Presses felt better than previous workouts.

The mind is a powerful tool
