Today was Upper Fix EXTREME! By the time I was done my shoulders were burning, my biceps were tight and my triceps weren’t sure if they liked me anymore or not. In a word it was… AWESOME! If a bit brutal. But change doesn’t happen without work. It doesn’t change without pushing. I did both! No the weights haven’t gone up, but seeing as I’m still modifying with the 8 lb weights as my heavies, I’m not moving up. Not yet anyhow.
I want to be able to do the reps unmodified before I increase the weight. There’s no point in going heavier if I can’t keep proper form and the reps with the weights I’m using. Yes, I know part of it might be not trusting myself, and not wanting to injure myself. I figure I’ll likely do like I did with the Original 21 Day Fix and do 2 rounds. This first round is to really learn and get the workouts down. Perfect my form. I’ll let the 2nd round be the one where I really push myself and see just how heavy, how hard, how far I can go.
Last week was much like the Original in that I wasn’t sure if I liked the program or not. I am starting to enjoy it more and more with each day, each workout, each increase in confidence as I move through. It’s not better or worse than 21DF, but different. It is definitely more of a challenge, but in a good way. It’s good to challenge myself, because it keeps my muscles guessing and keeps me moving and on my toes.
