Morning everyone! It’s High Five Friday, so that means you should try to be a weirdo and high five at least one stranger today. Don’t just walk up to them and throw out a high five…you must approach with a sporadic “high five friday!” shout out, lifting hand to high five simultaneously. They should receive this well and cooperate with a high five back. If not, try again with someone else. Make someone’s day a little brighter.
Today was Back and Bi’s. Forgot my watch so I don’t have a calorie expenditure to report but I will say this was a toughie in a deceiving way. I was huffing and puffing during most of my supersets, yet didn’t have too many sweat droplets. My first exercise of wide grip pull-ups were done with assistance, 110lbs to be exact. I feel like I am cheating a bit, but I am doing 15 reps and I also am not strong on this particular exercise so I figured it best to use the assistance and really focus on form, as well as slowing down the eccentric contraction (lowering). I felt like I had wings afterwards. But just to test myself, I tried to do an unassisted pull up at the very end of my workout and couldn’t even get halfway up! Guess it was a good workout after all.
