Off-Topic Just for fun....post your "courage corner"

Hey Folks, When I saw the compilation on IG with my old courage corner that I have posted here I thought I'd say "Hi" and give you an update.

Got a few more bells in the meantime and the whiteboard got bigger. Got rid of the mace, the clubs and the TRX is stored away and might go to Ebay soon.

I just got a 2nd 20kg bell. I recently got a 2nd 24, but the wide stance needed has thrown me off a bit. My 20kg is much smaller in diameter and so I took a gamble and bought another one, and despite being a different brand, its the same size. I should be able to start working some swings and ultimately clean and press in now.
Lots of overtime lately, and I normally don’t work any, so, I bought myself a 2nd 32kg bell. No chance I can press 2 x 32 yet, but while the money is there I may as well plan ahead! I can now clean and push press 2x24, so I want to keep going til I get to 2x32. Seems like a million years away but slowly slowly chipping away seems to work.

2nd 32 arrived. I wouldn’t even bother attempting anything with 2x32 at the moment. Currently push pressing 2x24, which is going well, though I still think I’m at least 6 months away from even cleaning the 2x32, maybe a year. Good motivation seeing them judging me while I use 2x24 haha.

Honestly can’t see myself ever needing a heavier pair of bells. I do have a single 36kg, but I think If I ever needed more weight, I’d get a single 40kg. That’d be years from now though, if ever !

Nice looking bells.
If you can get 10+ reps with the 24s you should give it go. Or perhaps try 24+32 instead.
Humbling but motivating at the same time.
