Tuesday Today before rugby, I thought that I would increase the intensity of my bicep curls but lower the number of sets so I did 5 sets of thirty with 3 minute intervals in between each one. At rugby practice we did more fitness training. We did pyramid runs which was meant to increase our muscular endurance. Wednesday I went to the gym and I found it hard to do all five sets of ten pull ups but I managed to do them all but I had to give myself an extra minute interval. After the 3rd and 4th set.
