Will try and get this down tomorrow with hubby's help getting the DBs in to place and spotting me.

Will update this post.



lbs 38.5 x reps 10 (x2)

total lifted: 770 lbs


That 9th and 10th rep was a killer, since I woke up with a tweaked right shoulder, ha! my strongest side was my weakest today.

Don't hurry, I am sure tomorrow will be much better served going shopping or for a bicycle ride. Spend some time with hubby. You will have time to lift next week or the week after.
