Back and forth

hqdefault[2]I jumped between shoulder and back exercises.  I topped off each body part at a pretty heavy weight.  By the end of the session I was sucking wind pretty hard.

One thing I dislike about a lot of the Cybex machines and really any machine that involves pulling is the fat rubber handles.  The additional thickness from the rubber makes pulling heavier weight a pain in the ass.  What makes it worse is the rubber is over it’s metal core sort of like a condom so it spins and stretches when put under heavy load, making grip even more of an issue.  Give me a solid piece of 1.25″ diameter metal to pull on and I will be a happy camper.
