Wednesday, March 2nd Workout - Pull Day - Back, Biceps and Abs

Okay, so I made this workout just a little harder since I upped everything last time. I did half of the prone row to 15 lb weights but my issue with that is that the 15 pounders are bigger and wider than the 10's (totally different weight brands) and they kept getting caught on the bench I was laying on. They were really unwieldy and because of that I couldn't lift them as high as I needed to so I'm not sure what to do about that. Due to that and them being really heavy I did 50 reps with the 15's and 50 reps with the 10's. I also upped my reps on the one arm row to 20 instead of 15.

Unfortunately I had to drop my chair pose to 2 minutes 30 seconds even though I was able to do 3 minutes last time. I'm thinking it's because my thighs are exhausted from yesterday's leg day so we'll see what happens next time.
