Comments:

* I just felt like lifting something heavy today and I have been wanting to do this for awhile now. The deadlift is not a shoulder or arm exercise. However, it does use the traps, biceps, and forearms to a great extent.

** I attempted 5 reps but failed. I will give it a second try next workout.

*** I decided to add a new triceps exercise that is an old favorite of mine. I haven’t done this exercise in about a decade but to my muscles it felt just like yesterday.
