I never started that bro-split since lower body sessions seem to be helping that high ham instead of hurting it. My legs are delightfully sore, but not hurting.
So today was an upper body day. And if that high ham continues to heal, I may start doing the 100 unbroken leg presses again prior to all workouts. That was so fun last winter!
Banded Shoulder External Rotation
Straight Arm Pull-Down
Rear-Delt Flye Dropset
Speaking of that last exercise, I don’t add an S to the word bicep in this context. Why? Because “bi” already implies that there are two heads in the bicep.
Tons of people disagree with me on this, but hear me out.
There are two wheels on a bicycle, but if I’m riding a bicycle, I’m not going to say that I’m riding a bicycles, yet people do that with the word bicep. They say it’s always biceps, as in “a biceps curl” or whatever, and I completely disagree… unless they want to make it possessive, like the bicep’s curl.
But we don’t say legs extension; we say leg extension. We don’t say pecs deck; we call it the pec deck. We don’t say rear delts destroyer; it’s the rear delt destroyer. You can probably think of other examples.
If you’re doing a quad workout, you likely won’t call it a quads workout. The hamstring curl is not a hamstrings curl.
All of these body parts include more than one head or even muscle, but we keep them singular because that’s how the English language works. Just like a haircut isn’t a hairscut.
This seems like a silly disagreement but I’m an editor in the fitness space. So it’s right up my alley.
And even if the smartest people in the world disagree with me — including the love of my life — I’m stickin’ to this one.
Here’s a tricep extension. There are three heads in each tricep but I don’t care; I’m not adding an s.
