  • I forgot… more stress on the negative. I just kept zooming along, “gee this feels light”, oh yeah — negative! I remembered that on my 3rd set of pulldowns. Makes a huge difference.

    I think it was in something Paul Carter wrote, but the speed isn’t like a 4 count or something. It’s a speed at which I could easily and immediately (without overtravel) change direction if I had to. That works better for me in terms of finding the right pace, than trying to count to some arbitrary number. I did discover that having a hold would be good too, like pull down, hold a moment… not so much for the hold, but to eliminate the momentum. I’ll keep working on it, because I’m just not used to working this way.

    Not much else to report. Was an 80% day, so I’ll take it.
