The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

I made it ALL the way through

Even the two extra exercises I added. I am very proud of myself. I haven't finished a workout since workout A6 in NROL4W Stage 1. I don't even feel like I am going to puke! I do feel wiped out though! Here is todays workout:

Push-Ups from knees - These are not a part of NROL FL1 but I have a goal I am working towards so I have added them on.
2X6, 1X5

Squat - I changed focus today regarding squats. I have switched to body weight only but ass-2-grass ROM. These were killer. Much harder than parallel squats with 75lbs.
3X12 a2g w/ BW

Bent Row - I was able up the weight today since we went down in reps
1X12 @48lbs, 2X12 @ 53lbs

Hip Extension - I really suck at this exercise. I have the hardest time keeping my feet together. Today wasn't so bad but I couldn't get my hips as high as I should have.

DB push press - I was able to go back up to 15lbs DBs for 2 of the sets.
2X12 @ 15e, 1X12 @ 12e

Step-Ups - Yes, I know that should read "lunge" but I am still having so many problems with the lunge that I switched it out. I still have BSS on workout B so I am not abandoning the motion all together. Today I focused on step ups without using anything to help me up. I still had to push off and I still needed something for balance and my form probably looks like that of a drunken seal BUT I did not use anything to help pull myself up!
1X5, 2X8

Swiss Ball Crunch
1X15, 2X12

Leg Raises - Another exercise I added to help strengthen my hip flexors.
