Today we get to retest a hero workout! It’s been more than a year since we’ve hit this guy so hopefully we can see some improvements on times here. Remember when retesting, if you’re going RX then yes use the same weight. Sometimes people tend to struggle about what weight to use or what scaling options for pullups, etc. The goal and how we get results is by intensity. So if I don’t use bands for pullups and I go 10# heavier on my barbell and I’m just 1 minute slower than the previous time, I would say that that would be an improvement in fitness! You were able to do a harder option on pullups, heavier load and still was close on the time. Intensity is power output, so if i’m able to lift a heavier load (barbell and bodyweight) and do it close to the same time or faster, that’s a win! So keep that in mind with retests. And of course, brag about your PR’s! If you get one write it down, don’t be shy!
