My triceps are killing me. They were killing me even before I finished my last exercise.
I could hear them begging me NOT to go through with the bench dips. "Skip, the bench dips" they whimpered.
But, alas, I had to carry on. They will forgive me when they are no longer flapping in the wind.
I had a nice hard workout, too early in the morning (6 am sharp) and I took a nap before lunchtime.
Tomorrow, I'll take a "before" photo. From there, I'll take a photo every four weeks. I have decided not to weigh myself (too much torture) and I have provided the measurements. Although, I don't know what measurements I should be shooting for. I'll figure that out.
