Yesterday after work I headed over to the gym located in my office building at work. I went with a couple of co workers and they ran through an ARM Circuit. Basically, it is bis, tris, then bis, tris, the bis then tris. This is set up over a few stations and we just rotated.
Now, I probably have not done a "proper arm curl" in months...not a year but maybe 6 mos or longer. I have pretty much removes all isolation type work out except for chest and the occasional back workout. 90% of the workouts I do now are "compound" workouts. I do squats and deadlifts and various olympic movements. I just dont do these bi and tri workouts anymore.
So after about 40 mins of 3 to 4 rotations, yes my arms felt a pump, but was it a workout? Most likely not. My buddies even said, man you slacker, you are not even out of breath. Well truth is I was not slacking I just did not feel challenged by the workout so I went through the motions and did what I did. Next time I go I think I will skew off and do my own thing.

We had a crazy rain storm come through over night and then this morning just GORGEOUS sunshine...it was chilly for sure...but it was nice. Here is what we did! Oh yeah today was BUDDY DAY!
