Still a bit weary of my triceps so kept the weight down a bit, bench press was done with a nice slow negative a pause on the chest and a solid push. Decided to put dips back into the workout which probably gave my triceps more of a pounding than they needed. My housemate has given me some grief because I have no added weight on there but dips is always something I have struggled with. I've vowed to hit 3 sets of 15 before adding any weight. Felt very weak for the dumbbell press, no doubt because of the dips and seated dumbbell shoulder press (why do I find shoulder presses so damn hard work?). Pushdowns gave me a great pump and I'm ditching dumbbell fly permanently to machine fly as I really feel it working 100x better. Pretty good workout overall. :)

Weigh in yesterday has me at 78.8 (weight going up...)

Hmmm, up 2kg on last lot of measurements. Quads are 1cm bigger, gained on my biceps and neck too but everything else has stayed the same except my waist that has dropped 1cm. Seems odd!
