I'm starting to adapt to my routine. I changed my pulldowns to a neutral grip. I sure can feel it tonight.
Wow, I'm starting to get strong. I'm increasing weights on my depletions to get me to the minimum number of reps and I'm taking them to the maximum number. But I still have the hardest time with shoulder exercises in terms of strength. I thought I'd be able to increase my weights on the standing press, but I was only able to increase my last set slightly.
So overall, I'd say things are going great.
