One of my friends on facebook once described the Push Phase as the “throw up and pass out” phase. I didn’t understand why she called it that until today. I really pushed myself and I could definitely see how it could be interpreted that way…especially if you forget to breathe. All I can say is know your limits. I discovered mine today and it was great. When I got done my muscles were spent and I could barely type or hold my glass of recovery drink, but I knew I had accomplished something and it felt fantastic.

Standard Bicep Curl – 20 lbs/7 reps (same as the first time I did Week 2, more than last week)
