Beating Old Gym Records: Take 2! Results

A month ago I planned to work on 10 of my longest-standing personal bests at the gym- all weights-related. 

I've had a good crack at these over the last month, making a few improvements. Whenever I beat a PB, I moved on to the next movement.

Hip adductor (inside thigh) 60 kg 6/12/11- it turned out this was the full machine. 1 down, 9 to go.

Bicep curl machine, plate 9 26/6/13- plate 9 would have been 40kg, not 45 as previously assumed. 45kg is now the PB.

Vertical dumbbell fly 2x18kg 7/7/13- 20kg is the new PB.

13 bicep chinups 14/7/14- 14 is the new PB.

14 horizontal grip chinups 16/5/15- 15 is the new PB.

55 dips 26/5/15- 60 is the new PB.

So. Small improvements on some machines. But improvements nonetheless. 5 out of 9 ain't bad.
