Congrats and good gains to keep the momentum going. I can relate to what you are saying, and this is not specifically for KB Strong, but any program that I pick up. There is minimal cognitive overload. I dont have to decide anything. I just have to decide to start.I am very happy that I was able to complete Strong! during this time with all of this change in my life. (Without exaggeration, at times, it felt like Strong! was the only stable thing in my life.) I can rationalize anything. (It is my super power). In the past, I would have used any one of these events to justify pausing my workout routine. I would rationalize the pauses by saying it would be better to continue in the program when I was able to devote 100% of my attention to the program. In the past, these pauses would stretch to months and then I would eventually abandon the program. I would get discouraged with myself, then the pause would extend to years before I would get the motivation to resume training again.
Yesterday was one such day. Busy day at work, lots of meetings, and I was drained. I almost decided that I wouldnt workout. But I forced myself to just get in a finish the prescribed KB Strong 7x5 with 2x28s. I ended up having a great workout. Did the KB strong work and also did the Q&D snatches in the end. Walked out feeling like a million bucks. I leave you with this thought
Momentum > Motivation
PS: I would suggest you do KB Strong with 2x28s before switching to 2x32s. I was doing 2x28 Ph2 and had to take a break to prep for SFG1. After SFG1 when I was ready to get back, i thought I was stronger and I could start KB Strong with 2x32s using Ph1. But my body wasn't ready for it. Half way I realized that I had to get back to 2x28s. Now I am back on the 2x28s train and on Day 20. So roughly 40% done. I am enjoying this and my body is recovering well to handle the load progressively.
