Here’s something I never would have done to before this workout program. Never in a million years would I have written down what I could lift on each exercise.
One, I’d be too embarrassed, and secondly,l what’s the point?
Well here’s the point.
I’m in week three of the plan.
In week one I could bench press 50kg: I did 7 reps in the first set, 5 in the second set and 4 in the third rep.
But here’s the thing: In week 3, I did 7 reps in the first set, 7 in the second rep and 8 in the third rep.
So now I can move up!
Might only add 2.5kg to each side of the bar, but it’s pretty fast progress. And it’s in keeping with what Skinny Vinny says, about a 5% increase every two weeks.
Gotta be honest, the child like delight I’ve got from this small increase is intense – and it’s not just in the bench press, they’ll all improved likewise, pretty much.
But do you know what? Without writing it all down, I wouldn’t have got this push or buzz.
