If I went to fast he pushed down a bit, to slow and he helped some. All he said was to close my eyes and focus on pinching the pencil. Don't think about anything but pinching that damn pencil. Tore my chest up!
I did that pencil trick the first year I really started getting into lifting and since have forgotten about it.
I gotta try that!
Just finished day 4 of my new workout: Legs
leg press: 10 sets of 3 @ 515 lbs
front squats: 6 sets of 5 @ 135 lbs (I fucking hate front squats b/c they're so damned awkward and I suck at them)
glute bridge with 1 sec pause: 5 sets of 6 @ 185 (by far the most awkward workout I've ever done. Look it up)
laying down leg curls: 2 sets of 15 @ 35 lbs on the 1st set and 25 lbs on the 2nd set
one-legged leg extensions: 1 set of 30 (ascending reps: 2, 2, 4, 4, 6, 6, 8, 8, 10, 10)
was supposed to to tabata, but my legs were too sore.
was supposed to do 25 mins LISS, but I'm lazy
