Halloween Chains

One of my main focuses right now is spicing up my training with some unconventional approaches to my lifts.  With it being Halloween I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to throw around some chains to help overload the peak of the contraction on lateral raises.  Each week I am going to try a few slightly different approaches to my lifts and I really encourage everyone to try something similar in their training.  We all can be found guilty of falling into a rut at some point and this is one way to keep things interesting.  I really feel that everyone can benefit in some way from slight variations and I regret not trying anything like this sooner.  This has allowed me to take a totally different approach to my training and in turn push forward with improvement. 

Had a great one and here's how it went....
