I did 2 exercises for work on saturday. Just two. (not counting warm-up movements obviously) Unless I was going for a PR test in the past I wouldn't even contemplate doing just two exercises, especially as a superset. I'm working on rebuilding some of my leg strength and endurance due to mostly laziness, and in the past I would have done squats, lunges, presses, curls, etc. But this time I did angle squats (think hack squats but with a smith machine) and landmine squat presses. Last set was a dropset til I couldn't lift the bar safely. It's interesting to me, how I felt more exhausted and motivitated doing just two movements, albeit more advanced ones, than I have doing a 3-5x8-12 of a several exercises. Don't know if it's because it's new and exciting or if it's just work that is better for me right now.
I am, at my heart, a challenger. I challenge other people to be better, and by making them do better it challenges me to step up. I might be too competitive. I remember my very first challenge here that really got me going was Broba Fett's volume challenge. And it's been on like donkey kong ever since. But I find JUST challenging myself doesn't always get me to where I want to be. I am working on being internally motivated, but it is more... challenging than I thought.
