Dips – Bodyweight (234)x2x10 – First time doing dips in, probably, a year or more.  My shoulders have always hurt.  This time they were a little tender, but I was able to do them with “relative” ease.  I will keep including them in my training.


My daily “selfie.”  Yes! That is “almost” Hulk Hogan on my shirt!  This picture also features my SBD Elbow Sleeves and Stiff Wrist Wraps.  I will be doing a product review on them soon(ish).
