Just started stage 6 today after finishing stage 5 last week. 6A1 wasn't a tough workout. But my understanding is that each time you do A you need to increase the weight or make the move tougher as you go down in reps.
Negative chin ups weren't tough--I was able to lower in 20+ seconds, so I will definitely need to check out the belts my gym has that allows you to hang a weight from them.
Will need to make push-ups tougher as I feel that I've been able to do 2 sets of 10 for a while now. Does anyone have an opinion about raising your feet on a step to make the push-up harder versus pausing at the bottom?
Toughest were the barbell split squats, but in a really good way. :)
Underhand grip pull-down as suggested felt strange, but definitely allowed me to go up in weight. I'm worried about how my gym has no 5lb plate to make increments smaller.
Will post when I get to stage 7. Definition in shoulders and arms is really showing now and I'm surprised by how proud that has made me. My belly is still flabby, but I know it's my less than stellar diet that's keeping that body fat hanging on.
