    I felt totally fatigued this morning. Legs were heavy and shoulders spent which resulted in a slower Helen time than 2 months ago. UGH!!!!

    I would like to leave work right now and go back to try, one more time, on my shoulder press max…

    Hjudge,

    I have a long period of leaving the gym with that feeling. I always felt like I could lift more but ran out of time.
    My advice, talk with a coach about how to build up to lifting at your max attempt. There is a method to use in deciding what weight to lift in your warm up and what weight to attempt for a new max effort.
    its easier to explain in person using a current lift effort in class.

    Go get it next time!

    You da man, Rustan. Unbelievable.

    A correction: I think Maggie’s info got mixed up with mine. Mine was 1215/20 lbs/green/5×52, 3 mins faster than last time. Maggie’s was 1144/Rxd-35lbs/red/4×70lbs dirty. As much as I’d like to claim that I can lift 70 lbs and use the red band…I can’t yet.
