I could tell a big difference in my training today. My new regimen is working for me.
Pullup Negatives - 5 x 2
-Last week I could only get 4 sets. Today I made all five. They are still tough on the last four inches. I just hold, hold, hold as long as I can there.
-These give me Z fever.
Open Palm Presses - 5 x 4 L, R
-I did the first set of 4 with a 12 kg kettlebell. Easy.
-The remaining four sets I did with a 25 lb. plate, holding it like a tray in my open hand.
-Two weeks ago, Brad had me try a press with the 25 lb. plate and I couldn't even hold it because my hand and arm shook so badly and my hot spot in my neck/trap/delt area screamed at me.
-Today, they were challenging, but doable, without the shakes!!
1 Arm 1 Leg Deadlifts - 24 kg (53 lbs.) - 4 x 6 L, R
-These are feeling sooooo much better each time I do them. They give me the Z fever; however, that means I'm getting my big toes to grip in and actually do some work.
I am amazed. I feel giddy. I'm anxious to see what I'm capable of, but I know I need to take it one training session at a time. I need to keep doing my Zscription. The payoff will be worth it.
