Ended the week with a big day for squats, most volume at that weight ever. Also had a fun partner sled session, not hit the sled since before lockdown, so that was fun!
The squats are a good reminder to always celebrate the wins – it doesn’t only have to be lifetime PB lifts – a few extra reps at a weight, a slightly faster time than last month, or even just turning up when you had every excuse ready not to.
Apply this to all areas of your life – have you done something new at work? Did your team deal really well with an issue – supporting them will really help morale. Did you get your child to school on time everyday while also keeping on top of your job? F*cking celebrate your achievements, and those around you.
Final thought, which is somewhat related – does celebrating and supporting those around you ever harm or hamper your own progress and success? No it doesn’t so celebrate yourself and your teams, but also support those around you. You can make someones day by bigging them up publicly or privately (it’s for them, not the likes remember). As Chris Williams of Modern wisdom puts it so well #gasyourmatesup !
