You know how the first day of any challenge goes, right? A little scared and very excited…
I was a little scared that I picked the wrong challenge for myself and that I won’t last long enough to see the result. But at the same time I was very excited. I wanted to start training and do it right away.
In the morning I went outside to my garden and put some gloves on because I knew what strength training can do to my musician hands over time.
I decided to start my experiment with 5 dead hangs X 10 seconds each with 2 minutes rest in between exercises. This seemed like doable task for a beginner like me.
So I jumped to the bar and held myself there while counting until 10. Good thing I put the gloves on because my hands wanted to slip. The gloves fastened my grip.
After 10 seconds were over I walked around for a couple of minutes and ate an apple which was fallen from the tree. So juicy, so sweet…
Then I repeated my dead hang 4 more times. Each time with some rest in between exercise. Each one was more difficult than the previous one. But not something too strenuous. I didn’t want to over-exert myself on the first try.
I finished the last dead hang tired but not exhausted.
A good start of the day.
