Yes it is/will & as of now form is the key!!!
So if you can only add a few seconds a day using perfect form that is great!!!
So when you feel your form faltering just stop!!!

Today I kept at it, even though I was trembling all over, heh.
Not sure if it is a good idea, what do you think? I'm pretty sure I kept good form thru it all.

I tremble towards my last few seconds too...it is determination to not give in yet I think lol
But as soon as I feel my form faltering I'm done!
Sooooooooo you're doing great!!!

I think I'll skip today, elbows bothering me greatly, and I don't want to make it worse. Kind of ironic!
Will resume tomorrow.
