Today I just wanted to test to see where i was w/ my base conditioning. I was almost exactly where I thought I would be. I question if this was just a self fulfilling prophesy or a valid test. I would never have someone test after a strength workout. When you are self coached you always have to be aware your coach just might be an idiot!
