Comments:

* The first set of Romanian deadlifts felt relatively easy to lower the bar below my knees while keeping my back straight. On the second set I was able to lower the bar below my knees but my back began to round out a little. The last set was almost too heavy for me at this point in time. I could only lower the bar down to the knees.

** I decided to do reverse curl before cheat curl in order to warm up the biceps. I was worried that it might fatigue my grip but it had no negative impact on my ability to bicep curl and made an excellent warm up.
