Biggest thing I can say about today is that I don’t think I push bodyweight exercises as much as I should.

I tend to move steady with them, not explosive. Nor do I always push them as much as I should.

For example, that last dip rep… I was almost failing and did NOT want to do fewer reps that I did last week, so I just put more explosive into the movement and cranked it out. I bet I could have done another one that way. So… why aren’t I? Why aren’t I pushing this more?

Which leads to the next issue, that I really should push my bodyweight works (dips, chins, etc.) further. Why am I caring to save one for later? Why not push it all the way? So I only get a half-rep out… fine… count it as a half-rep, especially if I ensure I don’t drop it but then take the half-rep, the few seconds of struggle “holding” it, then ensure I let down slowly. That’s how you get more chins eventually, and that’s how I’ll break through the plateau.

I really need to push myself more… not sure why I treat the bodyweight stuff differently, but here’s to breaking that treatment.
