And the last thing to fix before my biceps tendinitis in the shoulder is completely fixed. I've been focused on gaining mass so its been a juggle to focus on that and strengthening these three muscle groups, but I have noticed growth in all those areas, and look forward to getting them strong enough to where my bicep tendon can heal completely.
