Shoulders, traps and forearms

That'll be me on the beach in Cuba next January
(in the trunks, not the t-shirt)
Had my first session training with Ben today. My trainers seem to be getting younger and younger; Ben's 30 years younger than me!

Today should have been a leg day, but my left adductor is playing up again. I did start to feel a slight twinge there while I was swimming a couple of days ago.

Seated dumbbell military press
30lb x 10; 35lb x 10; 40lb x 10 (some assisted)

One arm front raise - 20lb x 10, 10, 10

One arm bent over shoulder row
25lb x 10; 35lb x 10, 10 per arm

Barbell shrugs - 135lb x 10; 185lb x 10, 10

Cable shrugs - 60lb x 10, 10, 10 per side

Farmer's walk with dumbbells (to one end of gym and back) - 60lb x 1; 70lb x 1, 1

Wrist roller (controlled up then down) x 3

By the end of the session, I'd lost all feeling from my elbows to my fingertips! A good first workout with Ben.
