I was able to get in front squats and clean pulls in today that I ended up missing out on yesterday. Front squats felt solid doing triples at 85%. The complexes were rather difficult, however. Coaching has been pretty draining this week, and as a result, my diet hasn't been as consistent and solid, so these sets really took it out of me.
A friend of mine mentioned this article and video below to me, and I find this very valuable, not just in life, but in athletic performance. Of particular importance, having a proud chest and a "position of power" can actually increase testosterone levels in the body. On the flip side, being in a slouched or "defeated" position can increase cortisol levels in the body.
When training or competing, the more testosterone the better! As is "The Trojan Way", stand tall, big chest, big eyes! It has more than just a psychological impact, it has a biological impact too.
