I reckon if I really trained hard I could do it again. Heavy weights is such a mind game though...you really have to believe you can do it.
I reckon I could leg press 100kgs now. I have really strong legs from horse riding. I normally ride 2 horses a day for a good 40mins each, but i'm bringing the boys back into work after a big break, hence only the short rides right now.
I was always weakest with the bench press, but anything with legs, such as squats, calves, leg press I could do heaps!
They actually used to have a pic of me at their gym doing the 280kg leg press! I was lifting the 2nd heaviest weight out of the entire gym with the leg press. The instructor for the power lifting group was the only one who could lift more than me
My fave used to be squats and leg press. The squats were the biggest mind game one for me. Thats why the group was so good because you had constant spotters and them telling you that you could do it.
I do miss the challenge, but i'm right into cardio right now, and that is the hardest thing I reckon...i'm normally not a cardio person, so its a big challenge for me right now.
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.
Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!
