Oh my my my! So this was my first workout that required me to do negative chin ups. How did it go you ask? Well, it sucked. Or rather, I sucked at doing them. Part of me thinks ‘what was I thinking?’ Negative chin ups, really!!??!!
The nice thing about this NROLFW stage 6A workout is that it’s quick. I’ll let you know about 6B as soon as I do it.
The rest of the workout consisted of lat pulldowns, split squats and push ups.
I only managed a 1s decent on the negatives x 3 sets of 1 rep each. Oh, and I had to have a trainer push me up as I jumped up to the bar to get enough height to actually do the negative. Lol! Why am I doing this???
Lat pulldowns – so here you do 10 sets of 2 reps with a 1 minute rest. This exercise really highlighted the difference in strength between my left and right sides. I’m left dominant and it showed as I struggled with the last few sets of 42kg.
Split squats – 3 sets of 10 reps @ 25kg. I was huffing and pushing when it was over but I think I’ll go up to 30kg next time.
Push ups – 3 sets of 10. It was ok except that the trainer kept telling me to keep my head up and that was so hard! Lol. I was so proud of my push ups until this workout.
And that was that. Only 9 workout left and I’ll join the New Rules of Lifting for Women alumni. Awesomeness!
Here’s a short video of my split squats that I posted on Instagram.
