I had a busy day planned today and I wanted to make sure to get an early start. I was up at 7 AM, made scrambled eggs for breakfast and then headed over to the gym just after 8 AM for my arms/shoulders workout. I lifted 13,400 pounds, which was almost 1,000 pounds better than my last arms/shoulders workout. Last time, I couldn’t manage a set of 6 pull-ups. This time I did two full sets of 6 and a third set of 4. Overall, it felt good although there was some strain in my left forearm. No workout tomorrow and then it’s back to the 4 AM routine on Monday.
