Monday – Pull

Comments:

* I can only pull this kind of weight to my knee. If I drop the barbell below the knee my back tends to round. If I manage to keep the weight at the knee or just above it I have no problems changing direction at the bottom of the lift.

    • 245 lbs x 12 reps

Commets:

Comments:

* I finally purchased some heavier dumbbells yesterday to add to my set and was really anxious to try them out. I tried using the 70 lbs dumbbells as I could easily do 12 reps with the 60s and ended up hurting my left shoulder. What ended up happening was that I lost control of the weight on the third rep and wrenched my arm/shoulder backwards until I heard a popping noise and the weight fell to the ground. I still continued the workout but had to use a much lighter weight then I could have used.
