Today was the conclusion of my BBS recovery period experiment. Today a BBS after a 4 day recovery. I improved 6 routines of 7 and for the 7th the eqpt was down. So the reduced recovery period works for me.
Wrists continue to be my smiley face routine. I just went to 45 lbs two weeks ago and will be ready to go to 50 lbs after my next routine likely. Also, I’m still improving fast on the one-arm cable pull down and back which is a new routine replacing the seated pull. Thanks @Don_Q for the suggestion.
I also worked on my self speak the last couple of days
- eric you are going to kill it this time
- eric you are stronger than you imagine
Thoughts like that. Sometimes saying them outloud in the car… And I remembered many years ago I walked a 20 foot horizontal pole, 50’ high without holding on to anything. I did have a safety line. I was probably 300+ lbs at the time. I never thought I could do that but I did it. That lately has been a source of additional internal strength.
The result of the recovery test is, I will rotate Friday, Wednesday, Monday - repeat, which gives me 50% more routines in a given period.
