LouCarJo Posted December 23, 2013 Report Share Posted December 23, 2013 So, very excited to see this mini challenge - I have been getting ready for 6 Jan to do my first challenge, but now it looks as though I can start sooner and do a little warm-up!The main challenge is going to be all about trying to convince myself that I *can* do this - I've been lifting since April but have been getting disheartened recently and questioning whether I am just not very sporty.So, by the end of this mini challenge I'll aim to have done 7 Starting Strength style sessions, with 15 minutes of intensive conditioning following each one. I'll be happy if I have nailed 50kg for squat work sets, 80kg for deadlifts and 30kg for bench press - I'm pretty much there for all of them, and it's my mind more than anything that's holding me back. Or just getting impatient and not resting enough between sets before trying again (and failing).I should be helped as I get to use my new home gym from Christmas day :-). No more travelling to get to the gym only to find all the space taken up by lots of generally rude and intimidating gentlemen... Only slight hiccup is that I've caught a cold and am currently holed up in bed with a temperature :-(. So I may have to backload the sessions, but I reckon 7 is still doable even if I write off today and tomorrow. Quote Link to comment
