Gym. Back & Triceps.

I was at work yesterday from 9pm until 5am this morning. Went home, set my alarm for 11am, crashed. Woke up at 10am because my cats had started nosing my ears to say "Get up. Feed me. Get up. It's *my* turn to be on that pillow. Get up." Who am I to argue? I spent the "extra" hour working on the piano and reading a chapter of Getting Things Done.

When checking my calendar, I discovered I had doubleschedule myself tomorrow, with the MRI and the dentist at the same time. Fixed that.

Then off to the gym. Machine Pull-Up & Machine Dip. Machine Row, 100 lb. Low Back Raise & Free Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press. I love what my arms look like in the mirror when I do that, especially the last set, which we again "superweighted" on a back-supporting bench. Hammer Frame Iso-Lateral High Row. A new exercise, Shoulder Cable Standing Side Raise. Just a piddly little 10lb this time, but it's really *focused* right into the shoulder. Yow. Seated Tricep Dumbbell Overhead Press, with a new weight, 45lb. See above about arms and mirrors. It gives me a perfect few of my brand new tris at their maximum pump and pop. My arms look like someone else's, not the flabby little wet sticks that my self-visualization insists that I have. My trainer tells me that I'm also developing the classic "slot" down my spine, from the rows and raises. I can reach back and feel it, but I can't twist my head around to see it. Finished off with Tricep Cable Pulldown.
