So, what will it be today?
Toss a coin..
Last time I did this exercise (2 days ago) I could do 12 reps. Today, I fell to the ground after 6.
Did the muscle capacity change? NO!
Did the mental focus change? NO!
The neural pathway is variable! Why? What opens/closes it? (Silence)
The hope is that tomorrow the capacity is back to 12.
In the meantime, I stand by my theory that I would rather have a strong muscle fail occasionally than live with a weaker muscle capacity day-by-day. Fully realizing the muscle strength can't compensate for the neural screw ups, I build the muscles and hope (and work) for generation of new neural pathways.
Wishful thinking? Maybe, but I'm still fighting the good fight after 20 years!
