MOAR VOLUME!

So this is interesting for sure. I’m writing up this log later in the day, and man if my arms aren’t constantly cramping on me. 🙂 Just more volume. I think the adjustment of the program, so far, is going to be good. Time will tell tho.

I went ahead and pushed the benching to the 10-rep threshold, because it went well and I still felt some left in the tank.

I am happier with the pulldowns — rather, my joints are. I’m not sure tho if the neutral-grip pulldowns are better for my back or my biceps tho as it feels like I do more work with my arms, just because of the angles.

Anyways, that’s about it. Minor adjustments to find the right workload, but so far so good.
