Due to weak point training my chest right now I decided to make this journal to perhaps get some help assessing my situation. Here is a backlog of days pertaining to my current routine. It dates back about a month. If you think I am not giving myself long enough to determine that my chest is a weak point I would appreciate the feedback. Or if you have any tips as to what I could do differently to improve training my chest please share that as well. Thanks for reading!
