Well what do you think is going on? You're hungry! GO get your macadamia butter and whatever you crave, you don't have to skip your work out if you like it, muscle mass is always a good thing. Good luck!

If you are not going to failure it is perfectly fine. In fact, you could get away with doing weighted chins, every day, as long as you do not go to failure in which case your 40lbs will increase to 50 60 etc.
