    Also forgetting your gym shirt and shoes and working out barefoot in gym shorts with a flannel plaid shirt makes you feel pretty hardcore. People looked at me weird when I was chalking my shoulders for the 305 set. I think I will switch the bent rows to yates rows. Cause I can feel them a bit more in my lats.
