But some comments.

It feels cool to be putting 45# plates on for sets other than my heaviest set. It wasn’t too long ago when I worked up to 45’s…. now it’s just part of my working up. Progress is cool.

I’m taking less rest between sets — all sets. I think this is going to become a staple.

The rotating DB curls worked better today. A little more weight helped. I think what helped more tho was not alternating hands. Doing them simultaneously seemed to make things work better. Probably because when I do one hand at a time, there’s a bit of body lean towards that side, which will change leverages. *shrug* Whatever. The more weight and simultaneous felt good, so I’ll keep with that for now.
