I set a new clean and jerk PR of 195#'s. That might not sound like a lot but for me it was a huge rush. I was stuck at 185#'s for a long time. I had been sick (head cold flu crap) and my work schedule had kept me from following my workouts consistently.
I didn't feel like working out that day. I was tired, stressed out, and still didn't feel that great. I worked up to 185 and got it easy. So I figured what the heck and gave 195 a shot. I considered trying 190 but to be honest with you I just new I would be able to get 195.
My point is don't skip the gym just because you're tired or the "conditions" aren't perfect. Some of my best workouts have happened when I was mentally exhausted and didn't feel like working out.
So how about you? Ever set a PR or have a really great workout when you didn't even want to be in the gym? Tell me your story in the comments.
