Not a whole lot to discuss today. Dan the Workout Partner™ was insistent that we mix up the cardio today, so we rode the bike. Not a fan. Boring, don't sweat as much, and I don't think that it's made for a 20 minute spin. I think that if I were to do the bike, I should be doing a long, slow burn on it and riding for at least 45 minutes. I hope his itch has been properly scratched and tomorrow we do the elliptical again. Or perhaps it's time to investigate the Stairmaster. Yikes.
btw, chest day? Sucks. Dan and I have the same lifting program and can do the same weights for everything, with two exceptions. He can handle more weight on chest day, specifically the incline bench. I can handle more weight on leg day, specifically the leg curl. I recognize that we're all different and have different skills, but like most men (I think) I fantasize about having a nice, broad chest that fills out a t-shirt - or at least sticks out further than my stomach. Instead, my gift is extra strength in my hamstrings - a muscle that to see properly I have to remove my pants, find a mirror, do a three-quarter turn and squat down as though I was deucing in the woods. Not so much a fantasy of mine as a reality when camping.
I took 20 pounds off Dan's lifts for incline when doing my reps. But I still did 'em. So there. :)
