Zen masters use the word satori to describe a flash of insight, a moment of no-mind and total presence.
Altough satori is not a lasting transformation, be grateful for when it comes, for it gives you a taste of enlightenment.

Actually only got 16-18s last three rounds, blaiming yesterday’s GHD for the cramping abs…
So, I have deadlifted heavy, (over 100kg), like three times since my back started hurting in March. That’s why I chose to go for TNG-lifts, didn’t wanna risk going to the max and just wanted to get the moving pattern in with some heavier weights. Actually this felt reaaally good and it felt like I could have done like 5 more reps in the last set. No pain at all and think I kept my back better than ever in these. Didn’t realize until now that this was actually a PB, well depending on how you count that is cause some say that in deadlifts you should only count reps from dead stop. (Which to me is a bit ridicilous, you don’t do that for your back squat, bench press or weighted pull ups, do you?).
KBS and Clap PshU was fun, kept it all unbroken but as you can see the pshu’s took more and more time to complete. Keep trying to get in a grip that doesn’t hurt my hands and today I kinda let the KB hang in my fingertips and it felt great! Didn’t get too exhausted from this, but still tired enough to re-plan my C-part. Wanted to get my 100 Burpees in, but actually I felt smart when I decided to save my pressing muscles, shoulders in particular, that took a big beating last week. Besides that, even though back extensions are painful, they’re a ”little” easier than burpees… 😉
After training it was Family Night and me, my mother and my brother went to the cinema and saw ”Due Date”. Starring Robert Downey Jr. and that Zack Baffybaffy or whatever his name is (guy from The Hangover) it felt like a safe card, and it was. Very funny movie and with a dinner previous to the film and some popcorn to go with it, may not be paleo but hey I have Incan genes you know, I think that people, (people as in me), spend way to little time doing these kind of things with their close ones. I for one, sure do…
