Rupe's Year of the Body: Day 15

Submitted by on January 15, 2011 – 3:04 pm No Comment

Really hard workout – tempted to break up in two separate, as I tend to loose form with the later ones.  Will probably move to Chest, Shoulders, Triceps on one day and then Back, Biceps and Abs another.  By the time I was finished with the Incline press, my shoulder were jelly…which pretty much killed my tricep reps.  At any rate, felt a wee bit stronger today.  Lower body tomorrow…hooah!
