I’m half ways through phase 1 of the NROLFW and I’ll be honest, I’m bored. It’s the same workout basically 16 times over a period of 6 weeks then it changes to phase 2.
You alternate between two workouts for the 6 weeks and do each 8 times. But they are almost identical – so it’s boring. Does that mean I am not pushing myself hard enough? I think I am lifting the max weight I can right now.
I can tell I am getting stronger, buts it’s boring. I’m going to stick with it and see if Phase 2 gets better, but if it doesn’t — I might go back to my old schedule. I miss my old workouts but I didn’t really have a “goal” in mind. Everything I read says always have a goal. With this, my goal is to complete this training program so I can say “I DID IT!!”
Do you have a training schedule that you like? A plan that mixes it up and works for you? I am a group class person but enjoy lifting on my own as well. I’d love to hear your recommendations or what works for you.
There I am, lifting weights. You can see my piece of paper on the bench. I feel like one of “those dudes” who write down stuff in a notebook but its the only way to track progress. I take pride in being one of those girls who lifts weights next to the big guys. It can be very intimidating to stand next to someone grunting and hemorrhaging from lifting way too much weight.
