I rarely ever train triceps or biceps. I feel like it is a waste of a workout.

I don't think triceps are a waste as they're an important secondary muscle group that come into play with pretty much all forms of pressing. Having said that I would struggle to give them their own workout, but I do spend time training them as part of my assistance/ancillary training.

Trying to get my diet back in check. Between working 50-60 hours a week and taking 4 classes this semester it has been so/so.

Jump Rope Warm Up

Had to switch my grip around due to pain and grip issues due to ripping a huge callous 3 days ago. So I didnt go as heavy. I should probably start switching groups to keep everyting even though.

Got frustrated with this today. Got a new jump rope and have not gotten used to the grips or how light it is.

35 mins of stairmaster (145 floors climbed)

Getting back on my cardio regimen.

Had to wear a belt for the first time ever due to a pulled muscle in my back. Feels really weird.

Well I did something last night at the gym because I am having so much pain in my right shoulder ai can barely raise my arm past shoulder height at the moment AND having serious pain in my right flank/abdomen just above pelvis crest. Really hoping this is not a hernia. Gonna stay off the weights for 2/3 days and see how it feels. Will have to get cardio in.
