Comments:

* I found these supersets much more difficult to perform than the previous workout and the only difference is that I added an extra 5 lbs to the barbell. I am not sure if I can continue to add weight without compromising form or resting longer between sets. I am currently trying to keep the rest between sets down to 30-45 seconds.

** I am also finding this weight difficult to use for the overhead triceps extension and perhaps will use two different weights or change the number of reps. I have to keep reminding myself that the goal is to get a pump in the muscles and not necessarily to handle the heaviest weight possible.
