  • really weird.

    here is what happened to me today:

    as im lifting tricepts today i noticed my strenght went up dramatically...i know we are supposed to increase either weight or rep number by a lil every week, but for some reason, today my strenght on tricepts just sky rocket.
    everything went up but only by a litle like it should be, except for this normal? do u guys ever had 1 day on a specific exercise that u completelly destroyed the log book?

    Yeah, it happens. Especially if you are just getting started. Thats awesome that you made a huge jump on triceps.

    Not everything is going to go up at exactly the same rate. My back is very strong and I made huge jumps in weight in the beginning and continue to steadily increase. My shoulders are not very strong and while I beat the logbook not by the same margin as I do with back.

    Dont be afraid to challenge yourself with very heavy weights. With good form and with safety in mind, of course. You might just surprise yourself.

    Dont ever be worried if you make a huge jump in weight. Be worried if you dont :grumpy:
    Through the best and the worst
    The struggle and sacrifice.
    For the true who've remained and the new blood.
    Motivation, undying allegiance
    Striving through the hardships and affliction.
    Every drop of blood
    Every bitter tear
    Every bead of sweat
    I live for this

        triceps are cool. i dont understand what is so alarming about weight jumps.

        "Those who do not beleive in the impossible, should not distract those who are already doing it"

        "if we aren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?"

        Note: i'm not an expert, but i'm probably right.

            J6, Listen to what the little guy Goll said, some things move up quickly while others can somewhat lag, no one is the same when it comes to increasing weights...
