One Month of Discipline & an Overloading Brain Fart

Brain Fart: combustion of brain gases that gives a great idea for about 2-3 seconds; it is advisable to write down the idea as soon as possible before it is lost forever.

So Discipline or Regret is a month old today. I am so excited at my progress and development so far, I still have a long way to go.

For the first time in my heavy existence I am changing my body. My arms are harder and toned, my legs are getting solid and my upper back is getting bulky and also well toned. My chest and abs are still buried under a keg but I can feel them, as I said it’s still early days.

I just want to thank the people who have commented and encouraged me over this 1st month (keep it coming 🙂). I would especially like to thank; Slosh, Steve & Stan for their friendship, encouragement and advice.

Ok back to the brain fart. I would have been putting all my eggs in the one basket this week by increasing my dumbbell weight and keeping to my 12 reps. My brain fart was this; the overloading principle is built on slight changes each workout , so to make each workout different this week I have decided to do it like this.

All workouts will be with the new dumbbell weights; 18kg (39.6lbs)

  1. Monday- from the Squats with dumbbells to the Tricep Press-Ups I will do 8 reps
  2. Wednesday- again from Squats with dumbbells to the Tricep Press-Ups I will do 10 reps
  3. Friday- yet again from Squats with dumbbells to the Tricep Press-Ups I will go back to my 12 reps

This gives me a variation for each strength training workout this week.
