Anyways I did DLs on beside the platform. I really like the noname bumper plates, but it will be limiting when I go with heavier weight.
Really? I never find anyone doing curls in racks there anymore. What time do you go? Honestly, when the platform is being used and the space beside it as well is too. I go right in between the Incline Bench and Flat Bench Press's if I have to. I'm not going to let a busy gym get in the way of my workout.

Awesome workout tonite!

Incline Bench 5x5 (245lb)
Cable Row 3x8 (240lb)
Standing Shoulder Press 3x8 (120lb) <- just started, adding 10lb every day i do it. my new favorite exercise
Wide Neutral Grip Pulldown 3x7 (190lb)



when I was doing my Incline Bench a regular dude came over and said "dude thats amazing. real strong! you've always been strong tho" so I told him that when I first started 2.5 years ago I could barely manage to bench 20lb dumbells. And then explained abit about how the change started coming when I started lifting heavy with high intensity.

I went at 11:30 AM on Friday.

Ya, I like this gym so far because there is lots of space to always be doing something. No waiting around at stupid Bonsor.

He fails to even make 1 rep of the weights and later blames his buddy for not spotting him properly :S. Oh yah, it seemed to be the new fad to bring in basketballs to the gym and bouncing them around when I was there.

They have one hammerstrength platform and maybe 8x45 lb bumper plates, etc... The 45s are very fat so you may only fit 4 on each side

Golds has pretty much everything you need IMO.

Honestly I have my cellphone with me in the gym, I guess its a habit but I still get my shit done.

I don't go off on it like some people do. Some literally walk in the gym on their phone, change into gym attire, get back on their phone, stretch, make a phone call, do a set, call someone... and so on. THAT pisses me off.

For me, since I don't have an ipod anymore, I like to use my phone as an mp3 player and also to record my progress a little bit of txting doesn't hurt.
