NOTES
This was one of those days when even the 5 lb plates weighed a ton. Was not good.
Leg Press - It is official, I hate this thing. Nuff said.
BHNP - Arms worn out heading in, this wore them out some more.

Grade today? C

I have been experimenting with McCallum's training thoughts. I like the pump sets, but even with the alternating chest and shoulders, my joints are hating them. I like to deload every 4-6 weeks, I have felt like I needed extended rest about every other week while on this protocol. Lesson learned? McCallum's pump sets and fullbody training do not like my nearly 49 year old body. I am going to modify things a bit. Next week I will move to a Vertical/Legs/Horizontal routine next week.

On a better note. I am still breathing, in the best shape of my life and I have a great family. One bad session won't change that.
