Second week of the NROLW program, still on 1A and 1B.

Here's an example of my imbalance from previous work with weights:

-Can squat 65 lbs. for 12 reps
-Can row 35 lb dumbbell for 12 reps
-Can do 10 prone jackknifes, no problem, thankyou thankyou again to two Pilates mat classes weekly since 2011.

BUT ...

Step-ups on plyo platform 18-inches high, while carrying a pair of 12.5 lb dumbbells: VERY Difficult to do for 12x each leg.

I miss doing curls because I always felt so tough while doing them. I had worked v e r y s l o w l y up to the 22.5 lb dumbbells for curls. NROLW doesn't have curls (yet, and probably at all, since it's a compound movement program) and I am curious about whether I will still be able to handle that weight. Or maybe do something heavier? We'll see. I am simply going to trust in the program.
