Gym. Session 48 of 124. Chest and biceps.
And around to the start of the week we go again.

Hammer machine bench press, inclined dumbbell press, on-my-back bench dumbbell flys, hammer machine bicep curls cycled with floor crunches, alternating arm inclined dumbbell bicep curls cycled with The Plank, then inclined bench cross abs (elbow to the opposite knee). This last one went a little weird, because it was my back that caught fire instead of my abs. And then finally standing bicep dumbbell curls, in a "drop set", which means doing a max set, then dropping weight, hopefully to the new max weight for the burned out muscles, do another set, and so on down to nothing.

My left elbow is rather sore, on the inside side, it started getting that way from the beginning, but really flared during the flys, it just would not straighten out the whole way. I really hope I didn't injure it.

I can finally feel, when I probe with my finger the band of chest muscles getting thicker. And I can now actually take all the "slack" out of the mouth of the sleeves of my t-shirt when I flex my arm!

Stronger and stronger, better and better.

Geeking out

Since excercise is now a geek outlet, any suggestions on what to do with my popping left elbow. I can feel the tendon pop in and out when ever I have it under load. Guess it means I'm not supposed to put it under load. ;)

Don't do that then. :)
