Woke up a little late. Snowstorm!  I guess Spring isn’t ready yet.

I wanted to get in the back and biceps, so I did that first.  It took so long though that I missed the 7 am spin class, so I got on the elliptical instead for 30 min.

Back & Biceps:  (30 sec rest b/w all sets)

widegrip pulldowns:  180 x 15, 15, 9, 8

bent over barbell row:  135 x 12, 12, 12

one arm dumbbell row:  55 x 12/12, 12/12, 12/12 (no rest, back and forth arm to arm)

machine hyperextensions: 180 x 15; 210 x 15; 240 x 15

seated dumbbell curls:  40 x 12, 10, 8, 7

preacher curls:  75 x 4; 55 x 15, 10, 7

elliptical 30 min

notes:  the annoying calluses forming on my hands threw my focus off a bit on the widegrip pulldowns.  Darn that rubber grip friction!  I need some gloves.

I hadn’t done hyperextensions on the machine in a while.  that’s because it’s friggin easy.  the weight of my torso helps push the weight down… it’s a machine for skinny guys, not fat guys.

the dumbbells were a mess this morning, all over the place.  I wanted to curl 35s, but couldn’t find them, so I used 40s instead, and stopped a set when my form got too crappy.

by the time I got to preacher curls, my mind was a little gone, so I accidentally stacked too much weight on and I’m like why the hell is it so hard??  oh yeah, I upped the weight almost 36% hahaha.  for sets 2-4, my forearms were burning SO much!  I think all that hanging ab work this week tired my forearms out… more than just the calluses on my hands, my forearms were tired.

At work, I was debating more cardio in the evening, but my shoulder was sore all day, so I decided to rest in the evening, and save up for Wednesday, which is shoulders day naturally HAHAHA

I also went out and bought a giant slow-cooker

There will be many week long chili marathons in my future, hahaha.

And how about you?  Any good workouts today?
