Sometimes I Amaze Myself...Can you?

 So here is the story.  No one showed up for the 8am kettlebell class this morning, so I was bored.  I decided to try to outdo my last record of a 116lbs pistol.  I didn't know what exactly would happen.  I knew I could use a little more weight, but I was not prepared for the end result.  After warming up performing single reps with (2) 8, 12, 16, and 24 kg bells...I had a problem.  How was I going to get more weight in my hands for my attempt?  So I decided to put a 24kg bell in my left hand, and a 32kg bell in my right.  I went down in the hole, and surprisingly, up I came.  That was a total of 124 lbs, and it was pretty easy! So I said to myself, "F**K it!, Lets try (2) 32kg bells!"  Honestly, I doubted I could do it. I thought for sure I wouldn't come up, but damn if I didn't!  Not only did I shatter my previous record by 25 lbs, but I was reminded of the psychology for success.  Believe in yourself.  I challenge you to do the same in your fitness goals....
