Today…. it just was. Maybe a “78%” day.

Felt a little drag-ass to get to the gym — I wanted to sleep more.

I am starting to think about doing some cable rows after the BB rows, like 3×12 or something, just to get a good stretch and peak contraction. Geez… that sounds very bodybuilder-like. But I do think my back seems to benefit from more volume.

The curls… that was silly. With the EZ bar I don’t get full extension because of how my arms get positioned. So today I leaned forward at the hips a bit, which put the arms at a different angle and I got full extension. I think over 60 reps that extra bit of bottom-end work got to me and I stripped off to just the empty bar. Yeah, wuss I am, but I was going to get 100 reps regardless. 🙂
