Reaching and overcoming fatigue
I’ve been hanging for 4 months now with the Bib starter, at the lowest weight possible with my max at 12 lbs. I reached that max 2 weeks ago, could last 2 sets @ 20 minutes with no problem at some point. I’m now hanging 11 sets per day, and getting to a point where I can’t start all my first sets at 12 pounds, and now have to rapidly go back to 8 lbs on the first set, or 6 lbs on the 2nd/3rd set. All subsequent sets are at 4.5 lbs now after the 4rd set, which is about the max pulling force you’ll find in an extender. So for the past week, I could barely sustain my max of 12 lbs for the first set and had to go back to 6 lbs for 8+ sets.
I have a concern, is this part of the ‘managing fatigue’ process? Is this what a hanging routine looks like for let’s say 1 year? Or a rest day is necessary to go back to my max and gradually decreasing weight for next sets. When looking at extender practicioners, they go at 2-5 lbs for 8+ hours a day. I know that when hanging I’m still felling fatigue at 5 lbs, but it just feels dumb and counterproductive at this point. It feels like my new max weight is 8 lbs, that I feel pain more and more fast, but I’m fighting against the fatigue.
