Man – what a workout!

I had one new exercise – the Jansen rope extension – and I was very close to my previous all-time best on that exercise.

But on the other exercises… I hit 6 PRs out of 6 movements! Now that’s what I’m talking about!

On the first exercise, the high incline hammer strength press with bands, I hit a ridiculous 40 pound PR. Normally this kind of strength gain from workout to workout would be impossible – especially while dieting.

However, I have a new theory that I’m testing out called “The Infinite Strength Curve,” and so far it’s working EXTREMELY well.

Everything else was up significantly as well.
