The Arms Are Getting Longer


Well, the routine is. A couple of minor changes from last week, in addition to the fact that I decided to video much of the session to check form, meant that it was a bit of a long one. This week :

The weights were the same as last week for most exercises (due to my lack of small plates which fit the dumbell handles), so I slowed each movement down a little to compensate; as well as using alternating arms for some. The session was a bit longer than I'd hoped - even with the changes/video work - weighing in at a hefty 106 mins.
