HALFWAY POINT BABY!!
And more good news, I "just" about complete a grown up pull up yesterday. It's true, my husband even witnessed it! Reverse grip, I get almost all the way up to the bar before I collapse back down. Big change from 45 days ago when I couldn't even move upward at all! So I won't yet say I can do a grown up pullup, but I will say I almost can!
I'm turning a corner, I can't believe it! Honestly, feels like I just started yesterday. Well, in my head anyway, my body certainly doesn't feel like I just started yesterday, or I would have trouble typing this. This has been a journey for me in so many ways, but I won't start waxing philosophical on you yet (and trust me, I'm a sappy sap, so it's coming). Now I don't know if I push myself extra hard today because of my milestone or what, but I had SUCH a good workout today and made lots of changes.
So I start my workout. First off, I finally remembered to buy my 10 pound weights, as I've noticed the previous two times I did this workout, I really needed heavier weights. Holy Cow! What a difference. I am able to use 10 pound weights for all exercises and still maintain 15 reps of each, difference is I SOOO feel the burn on the last three of everything. The only exception is the Crouching Cohen Curls. I use 10's, but only complete 13 reps. Pull ups are good. Reps are up there. For the strip set at the end, I use the 10's for the first two sets, then 8's, then 5's. Killer workout today, what a difference, I'm pouring sweat by the end. Sure wish I had those 10's last week!
And Ab Ripper! I finally add my arms to the ceiling in the bicycle series. Then, in the Wide Leg situps, I finally change to cross leg and am able to complete them all (I remember I tried it the first time I did the workout and couldn't even get up off the floor!) I keep up to their tempo in all of the Crunchy Frogs. And Mason Twists? Well, I can still only do 35-40 with legs off the floor, yet on the first day I could barely do 1 or 2.
Great Day, Great Day. God Bless Tony Horton for changing my life!
