5 minute walk

-Maximum Strength -phase 1 - upper body day 2
-1- arm DB PP - Didn't hurt and it wasn't heavy but I did feeling a strange clicking feeling every time I'd bring the weight down in both shoulders
-close-grip chin up - The grip was a bit awkward, had to reset my grip on the later sets, I'll add a little weight next week, no arm pain at least
-pushup - Did this as EC describes in the book "pull your chest to the floor" Strange to think about it that way and you do feel it in your upper back
-DB row - I think 65 may have been a bit too heavy as my form deteriorated a little
-kb band curl - 35 was too easy for the first set but then 45 was too heavy
-row -My glutes felt like they were on fire after the first 3 minutes.
-walk - legs felt crampy after the row, just to loosen them up a little

Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
