I just finished my first Velocity workout, but I am not worn out like I thought I would be. The 5 reps I did for each set of bent rows were hard, but not bad. How hard should I be struggling to get rep 4 or 5? Also, I did the overhead squat with the Smith machine against the training advice because that’s all I had available. I couldn’t do it well because it’s just not conducive to overhead squats and it killed my wrists. The dips were tough just using my bodyweight–took me 5 sets to get all 20-- but the ab rollout wasn’t bad. As a matter of fact, I did 1 set of 20. I tried getting up on my toes as the training suggested, but I couldn’t do it at all.
I really really want to succeed at this, so am I doing something wrong? Do I just need to go up on my weight?
By the way, next Monday I am going to use the weight room at the high school where I teach so that I can do the overhead squats correctly.
And thanks for answering my questions so promptly. I feel like I am asking too many!
