The day I learned my body is still on the decline (I'm at 16.2% now) I had a killer workout. I love good news!
Today I did pull ups (reg, not wide grip) with my palms facing me rather than facing away from me like I've always one them. My bicep flexes differently when my palms are facing me on pull ups than when they are facing away from me. Is there a big difference? Is that a stupid question? I feel like I should know the answer, but I don't. :/

Auxiliary extension movement: One Arm Supinated Dumbbell Triceps Extension 3 x 6 reps ...what it was supposed to be @ 20 lbs each hand for 8 reps, all three sets I can only make it to 5 reps with the 22.5 lb dumbbells on these (5 reps is failure for me), but I can make it to 8 with 20 lb dumbbells. So frustrating. :/ I tried making it to 6 reps each arm with the 22.5 lb dumbbell, but almost dropped the weight on my face, my lip ring and teeth would not have appreciated that. IT'S JUST ONE MORE REP...ONE MORE FREAKING REP!!! UGH.
