So, tonight I went to the gym with my brother to work on chest and biceps. Now, for the past few months my brother hasn’t been able to work out at all because of school and two jobs. However, since he just finished up school and quit his side job he now has time to start working out again.
When I first started working out he was the one who showed me a lot. Often times when we did exercises involving weight plates he would just do a lower weight to accommodate me, but up his rep count. That way we wouldn’t have to waste a ton of time constantly switching off weight plates.
That leads us up to tonight. He has to get his body back into shape so tonight we mainly focused on dumbbell excercises to save time since we were lifting different weight amounts. At the end of the workout, though, we went to go do the decline barbell press and I got to say “Don’t worry, we can keep it at a lower weight and I’ll just do a higher number of reps.”. It was a good feeling. My brother is still a beast, though, and I figure in about a months time he will be back to out lifting me. Whatevs, it may only be a short lived victory, but I will take it.
