Well, the jury is still out, after all, on whether the gloves are helping, at least with the curls/rows. My hands were burning again by the time I got to eight reps today. I stuck it out and did ten, but they weren't happy. I suspect that it is the "row" aspect, which causes tension in my hands along the direction of my forearms -- whereas if I did classic bicep curls, the stress would be perpendicular.
Again, a big welcome to the folks who found me from yesterday's "Low-Carb Conversations" podcast! And if you haven't checked out the show yet, I hope you will go over and give it a listen.
First, I want to welcome the folks who may have found my blog after hearing me on the "Low-Carb Conversations" podcast!
Well, I was sick with some 24-hour bug on Tuesday, much better but didn't want to push it on Wednesday, and... I got no excuse for Thursday! But why is it that I so often get more improvement on days when I have gone longer since the last time? I improved on six things, and even added weight on shoulder press. Maybe I just have a longer "stride" with this stuff, but I still would rather be more regular about going 4-5 days.
Held steady, lost one on flies and dips, but I think I fluctuate a lot on both of those. With flies, it depends a lot on how good my form has been -- better form means fewer reps.
Nice to level-up on hamstring curls, though! And I think I should do so on shoulder press next time.
