Well Thursday, I made a quantum leap with my weight training routine. Heretofore, I'd not been pushing myself and had been only chest pressing 75-lbs for like 3 sets of 25 reps. But that day, I stepped it up to a set of 10 reps at 100-lbs and a set of 15 reps at that same 100-lbs
Right from the outset, I knew I'd be stepping it up. Two sets of 50 at 200-lbs on the leg press.Two sets of 25 at 30-lbs on the crunchboard
That regiment is sufficient to use up my allotted workout time thrice weekly.
Per the Tempe college band Meat Puppets:
Nothing on top but a bucket and a mop and an illustrated book about birds,
There's a lot up there,
But don't be scared,
Who needs action when you've got words.
I've been accused of being both indecisive and lugubriously locacous. I plead guilty on both counts. The former, ala Jason Mraz, I'm trying to remedy; the latter, I wholeheartedly embrace.
I think I'll increase reps, while maintaining weight.
Also quite similar to when I took Weightlifting as my P.E.credit and then independent study in college, I initially lost weight (presumably from loss of adipose), but then I've been, ever so slightly, gaining weight (quite assuredly from slight muscle hypertrophy).
I maintained that schemata at my Saturday workout.
