I lost .4 pounds this week for a monthly total of 3.6 pounds. To work my butt off and not even get a full pound a week is very annoying! On the bright side, I didn't have a net gain as I did last November.
Over the past year my trainer had me do wall squats with a stabilization ball, bench squats and TRX squats. He FINALLY graduated me to barbell squats and I am thrilled.
I did a set with just the bar then he started adding weight. For my final set I did 95 pounds which he said is great for my first day. We had warmed up with some time on the elliptical and some wall squats. I finished the session with three sets of leg curls so by the time I left there my legs were like rubber!
I'm so psyched over my BB Squats that it's keeping me from getting too fussed up over my low net weight loss for the month.
