Buster Benson I need more goals.
Josh has been talking about this slow weights thing for years. Recently Daniel started doing it as well. I’m always game for something different and that has a gimmick of some sort, so I decided to give it a try.
I told them that I want to work on strength, gain 10 or so pounds, learn more about nutrition and diet to supplement this work, and basically see what it does. I’m a bit burned out on running lately and have been jumping rope instead. I like these short little intense workouts so far and think the philosophy is at least very interesting and worthy of experimentation.
Because I’m a metrics freak, I asked about getting information that would give me an idea of “progress”. Since it’s not all about number of reps or maximum weight, I asked what they are trying to maximize. So there will be a free “body assessment” that takes measurements and records them for the future and such. As soon as I find out what those are, I’m of course going to post them, and any future progress as well.
It’s a little expensive, but I like the spirit of the whole thing and it’s right up my alley. I just bought a 12-week package with 3 free sessions, so I’m in for at least a few months. Going a whole year would be quite a big deal for me since I am such a slacker when it comes to strength training.
