Morning my fitness friends! I hope that everyone survived the "Fall Back" clock set. HA! HA!
So, I am FINALLY back in the gym. I am sooooooo excited about it. I am doing the StrongLifts 5x5 Program and have finished the first week. Is it optimal? Likely not. But, I have NEVER in my 50 years started a program, yet alone finished one. So, doing this one. For the experience. Not really too worried about it not being optimal or not. I picked it, I started it and I am going to finish it.
And, for those who might remember the conversation several weeks ago about grip strength and dead lifts, I was someone adamant about not ever trying overhand/underhand with Dead Lifts. Well, I revisited that and guess what? I actually did my Dead Lifts with an Overhand/Underhand grip. I am going to move forward with this. Now, at this point, the Dead Lifts are really light....145lbs. But, even better to start with something new where the weight is something that I can likely do one-handed. The jury is still out. I will have Dead Lifts twice this coming week...the weight will go up a bit more. So, interested in how this continue. Looking forward to that journey.
Anyway, just a little update. No real question.
