Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th

I didn’t do any “official” exercise over the weekend.  Instead I counted the 8-10 hours of physical labor I put in on the new room as my workouts.  Pretty sure it’s a fair trade.

* One of my co-workers pointed out that my form was way off on my curls and that I needed to keep my arms closer to my side to maximize the benefit I was getting AND prevent myself from getting injured.  Doing them properly has forced me to back off on the weight.
