Today was planned to be an arm day ending in cardio
I partially tore my bicep back in November and my arm still experiences alot of pain when I hit higher reps.
I was able to bust out 25 dead hang pull ups which severely aggravated my arm.
Then I moved to hammer curls and decided not to push through the pain.
Since this was my first day using GW, I decided to test out a cardio session on a treadmill since its icy outside.
Still hurting from my leg day earlier this week, I started out slow at 6mph and slowly ramped it up to 7.5mph over a mile and a half.
I realized my breathing was heavy but my body was completely satisfied with how much oxygen I was getting and I was not gassing out.
I paused the treadmill, stretched and decided to test out how good cardio is on GW. I started at 8mph and slowly ramped up to 9mph and as I was about to hit another 1.5 miles I kicked it into 10mph with phenomenal cardiovascular endurance pushing me through to an average of a 7:20 minute mile.
I was shocked that I was able to push through such a grueling cardio session with ease. I have not ran that effortlessly in a few years!
When I was done, I weighed 180 with 3lbs lost in sweat.
Cant wait to see how this progresses.
