I have to brag

I just started week 3 of STS mesocycle 3, and today I was able to hoist a pair of 30 lb. dumbbells into the air for chest flys! I also upped my bench press to 85 lbs. Both of them new records for me! I'm psyched!

I haven't put on as much muscle as I had hoped this time around, but the strength gains are blowing my mind.

Congratulations Nancy! You deserve to brag about that accomplishment. Well done!

You have me intrigued about STS now. I am currently following Caroline Girvan's EPIC III program (first time in 25+ years of exercising that I have ever followed a program) and I too am blown away by the strength gains and how good I feel. I will definitely read up more on STS.

Strength s everything!! That is awesome! Some people naturally LOOK strong, but struggle to hold a marshmallow, strength is a huge deal! And you are also strengthening your bones at the same time, which is also a big deal. I am still mostly having to walk, but as soon as able, you are inspiring me to build some fierce strength as well. We can all be Amazon women/men (or whatever goals, fill Amazon with that, lol) My family has crumbly bones and I have worked so hard not to have that. Some health I can't seem to control (atleast as far as I know right now) but I wish to atleast do what I kNOW I can.
All that rambling to say, filled with pride for you. Celebrate every change in this!! Thankyou so much for sharing!! You have every right to Brag
