I started out doing the total tension complex 4 1/2 weeks ago the bells I chose 24kgs because I can presto’s about 5 to 6 times. The first two weeks weren’t easy but they also weren’t really hard. I started out pressing the bells five times. Then I decided to add two reps to my pyramid for a total of 7. This was challenging particularly on the descending part of the pyramid when I had to do six and five again. Today was my first day of Wii five where I tried to add one more rep for a total of eight. Here is where I came into a dilemma on the descending part of the pyramid there was no way I was going to be able to get seven and six so the last two reps I ended up doing push presses. My question is this should I continue to do this or should I drop it back down to seven and simply do seven for the last two weeks. Or should I give it a go one more time for the second press workout on Friday at 8 and see if I can’t push past my limit. I was able to get 8 presses it was difficult but I got it, but that descending pyramid was rough.
