comment Troubleshooting “Body By Science” workout
Thanks @mozy, I agree that diet is very important. I'm inclined to think that it may not be the missing piece here because my diet is generally pretty good, is in-line with that recommended in Body by Science, and I haven't changed it from when I was doing a more traditional strength program (and getting good results).

Thanks, this is good advice. I'm going to continue testing the increased rest days, and then I'll try your advice. I'll report back, but since the cycles were every 7 days and are now more like 10-11 with the increased rest, it may take awhile! ;-)

That makes sense. Keeping the time under load in range (between 45-90sec.) is a critical part of this program so unfortunately I can't play around with weight too much. I'm now trying adding more rest days in between workouts & will report back here after a couple cycles if that seems to help.

@Berin well, that would be the plan - but I need to get stronger for that to happen without reducing my time under load. It's a bit of a chicken-and-the-egg problem. :-)

comment How to overcome fear?
I've heard this is one reason why younger gymnasts tend to do better in elite competitions: they don't know enough yet to be afraid.
