This going to the gym early thing is really paying off!
Current 42kg | Previous 40kg | Increase 2kg
Current 15kg | Previous 20kg | Increase -5kg
Current 50kg | Previous 40kg | Increase 10kg
I didn’t think I would increase my squat weight to begin with. I did the warm up sets than the 1st of the five sets @40kg. Feeling good I upped it to 42kg and managed to go the other four sets! I also used the fixed weight bar for the OHP. I was able to work on form and will up it to 20kg next time to prefect my form before moving on to the olympic bar.
I completed with workout right after Stronglifts. I did all exercises on day 2 and started with light weights.
For the Standing Cable Curl, the gym doesn’t the the correct bar. I used the rope attachment this time round but I think from now on I’ll just do barbell curls instead. By the time I was doing the cable exercises I had the gym to myself!
Starting to work out the best times to workout, I couldn’t do all this in a busy gym. I used to be terrified about not knowing what I was doing, how to use the machines, and having people look at me. Now I make sure I check out videos online first and basically ignore everyone else working out.
