I am so annoyed with myself and I don't know what to do next. I just realized that I did the first half of Stage 1 wrong. Instead of doing the set repetitions like this - 15, 15, 12, 12, 10, 10, 8, 8 - I have stated off by doing them like this 15, 12, 10, 8. I did not repeat the repetitions. So what should I do now? Start over?
I did 2 sets of the 15 & 12 and 3 sets of the 10 & 8. Thank you. I think I will do that.
The 30lbs in the shoulder stats is 2 15lbs, not 30 lbs each hand. I guess I should have clarified that. I hate shoulder exercises because that is my weakest link but I know I have to make them stronger. I also feel nothing with the Swiss ball crunch, maybe I should do more also.
Unfortunately my gym does not have 5# increments for the cable machines. 60# is too light for the wide-grap lat pulldown but 70# is too heavy. I could only do 8 for the first set then switched back to 60# for set 2&3.
Halfway done with stage 1 today! I'm looking forward to upping to three sets on each exercise. I've seen a decent weight increase in most of the exercises, with the exception of the shoulder press (who would have thought?). For some reason I'm struggling with that one, but my endurance is getting better so I guess that's good.
