Comments: Good workout. Forearms gave out before the rest of my muscles during chin-ups. Going to need to go back to barbell shrugs - only reason I switched was because it's a pain in the ass to set up the barbell; I have to take all of my weights outside into my garage and then balance it on my bench because I don't want to hurt myself incorrectly deadlifting that heavy load. But I may start doing my dips outside as well as all my other exercises, so that little issue will no longer remain.

I feel good about my recent progress/consistancy
