Feeling irrationally anxious and not much I can do about it, so I popped in the gym for 3 sets on my machine circuit before lunch: Session 58: leg curls: 20x 50# easy leg press: 20x 210# medium overhead press: 15-20x 30# hard1 arm curls: 15-20x 30# v.hard ab crunch: 12-15x 90# moderate2 arm extension: 20x 30# easy3 chest press: 16-20x 50# moderate 1.
