Last week I benchpressed a new personal best, 110kgs. It was an incredible experience. I didn’t know if I could do it but I was spurred on by my friend who spotted me and told me that I could do it. I got ready, focussed and lay on the bench, looking up. I went for it. The roar that I released whilst pushing the weights from my chest to above my head released so much power and pent up aggression, frustration and anger that it helped me to turn a page in my life. Not only had I reached a new life goal but it helped me enter a new chapter of my life.
I didn’t know if I could do it but I did it.
