Today is an arms exercise day and I have to admit that it is one of my favorites. The hard work I do today always pays off. All I have to do is look down to see how much larger and more cut my arms are getting. When I wear a T-shirt I can not only see, but also feel the work I put in. As I am pulling up that last rep and my body is shaking as my bicep uses all it’s might and the blood rushes from my body to my arms and my skin is turning red, I think to myself, “Yea, this is how it is done”. Ripping and tearing the bicep from deep within to create small injuries that could take up to a week to repair. Each time the body repairs this muscle it increases in both size and strength. I am just killing it today.
