So I haven’t posted a lot about my own fitness. My leg lifts are progressing nicely, I am capable of lifting more over my head so my squats are progressing!
The real problem was my arms. I usually switch between using the bar and dumbbells as needed to increase my weight. Only, when I went back to the dumbbells I couldn’t lift them. So I was stalling because I had to go back down on weights and without the bar had no way to change them incrementally. I would have to go from 8lb curls (too easy) to 13lb curls (slightly too hard)
So I finally gave in and bought fractional plates. I now have 1.25 lb plates. They’re tiny and cute and now I’m doing 10.5 curls (still a little easy, but challenging enough to where I feel I am progressing)
They’re all still baby lifts, though. And much lower than I was doing with the bar (I thought I was ready for 15lb curls).
