Workout, Day 8

Today was my second go at arms and shoulders. I had to catch a later bus, but I still managed to squeeze in all my exercises.
1. Hammer curl: 20 lb
2. Tricep pull down: 40 lb
3. Concentration curl: 25 lb
4. Tricep extension: 25 lb
5. Wrist curl: 25 lb
6. Military press: 65 lb
7. Reverse fly: 60 lb
8. Lateral raise: 12.5 lb
9. Shrug: 45 lb
10. Dumbell press: 20 lb
11. Front raise: 10lb
I increased the wrist curl weight from last time, but I think it needs to go even higher. I’m going to up weights for the hammer curl and the pull down. Everything else was a good weight, but I did struggle with the last couple of reps on the concentration curls, dumbell press and lateral raises. I had to cut the front raises short. It was my last exercise after all. I think it was a good workout.
I am going to try for 750 m in my swim tomorrow.
