Big Adam Press Day

Strength

Tuesday 12-29

Docket for tonight was overhead work and some shoulder hypertrophy. I decided to hit the axle for the first time in many months to see where I was and familiarize myself with it again. I was really pleased with the results.

Finished up with dumbbell lat raises five sets of ten with a 30 second test between sets. I got one hell of a pump from these. Time to eat!
