2014-10-24 training log

So much crap in my head and life… and somehow that motivated me to put in ear buds, crank the music, and lift hard and aggressive.

It was good. 🙂

I modified a bit, adding a 5th set of rows, which I think makes a good difference.

On the shrugs, I realized I went too heavy then backed off. I need to get the shrugs in better form. I know, shrugs right? But it’s about watching my body “droop” instead of keeping excellent posture the whole time. I might even drop the weight down even more next week to ensure posture stays solid all the way through — I think side effects like on posture, on grip, etc. are good side-effects of this method of shrugs. So, gotta focus on that.

And yes, 100-rep curls are a mental game.
