We concentrated on upper body this last 4 weeks which, for me, is a lesson in baby steps. With lower body I can make bigger increases in weight as the weeks progress but it doesn’t work that way for upper body. Often a 5 lb jump is huge for me and moving from a 15 lb dumb bell to the next available size of 20 lbs is just too much. Damned skinny arms!
Looking forward to a week of conditioning coming up and then back to the weights.
