I can definitely tell a difference going in the morning rather than after work -- everything is much easier. In the case of the vertical traction, I raised the weight by 5 lbs over last week and it was still easier. My weight is also down three pounds from last time, but that I'm pretty sure is just time-of-day variation.

My one big frustration is something that happens with both the shoulder press and the arm curl: the exercise starts out trivially easy, then somewhere in the middle of the second set the muscles just sorta give up and it becomes really, really difficult to finish. It's weird how it jumps straight from "This is nothing!" to "Can't ... move ... why ... must ... Spock ... die!!"

Tuesday is "one set each at +15 pounds" day! Woohoo! O.o
