I have just started week 2 of the 10 week strength plan and thought I’d set this forum post up as a way to ask Qs and as a way for those also mid plan to help encourage other.
My back ground is I have never been to the gym before!! I am late 30s and joined dot last week on a 3 month membership to get through the plan.
I have an indoor trainer at home so do the rides on ERG mode but the TSS ride I do based on RPE and HR outside as have no power meter.
I am sticking to the plan so far except for the Nino which I have not done due to equipment restraints but do the odd plank to keep the core ticking over.
My main concern is I have climbed through the weights too quick. So today was session 4 out of 9 of Adaptation phase and I can’t see myself adding much more weight to t he exercises (if I am to complete the 4x8 reps). Any advice? Should I just stick at this weight no w I have got there and maybe try and edge it up in week 3?
Look forward to hearing peoples views and how they are getting on with their plan especially if further through than me.
