Today I was a bit tired, from the 4th of July, and I knew I just didn't have the mental motivation to tackle Janet Jones Gretzy. I thought, hmmm, do Prime power fat burning. It is a low intermediate tape, would get me moving, and I could work my upper body, and see my progress since I haven't done it for a couple of weeks.
Wow, I couldn't believe it. I did 12 pounds on lat rows, and isolated bicep curls. I used 10 pounds on my other bicep set that I used 5 or 8 before. I used 10 on french press, which amazed me, It shouldn't have because I have been trying to do with Janet, but on this tape, I was using 5 pounds last time I did it. The only reason I didn't make it through the set was because of my neck hurting, which I have to watch because of the TMJD stuff. I wanted to jump up and down with joy. Then the big one came with the deltoid work. For me it has always been the hardest set to do. The frontal, anterior and posterior delt work I always had to use 2 pounds because even using 3 I couldn't even lift a 3 pound weight when she moved to the military press which should be a heavy weight. Today I did 3 pounds for the regular delt work, and I was able to lift 8 pound weights on the military press. Happy, Happy day. Janet Jones Gretzky may kill me do her tape but it has obviously worked using it the past 2 weeks. It tells me the rotation I have been doing is working, my strength is improving in a measurable tangible way. It tells me muscle memory is coming back, and faster than anticipated.
