I workout at the oval too and I've seen some of those people haha.
The ones that have been bugging me recently are the ones that are sitting on two machines side by side just talking to each other.. I walk over to ask how many sets they have left and most times they're like "oh, we're not using it" and get up and walk over to the next set of unused machines to just sit and talk..

question is, did you need the machines in which they weren't doing shit on? and if you did, did you ask em if they needed it?

I get mad too but instead of letting it get to me i just voice it to them.

or did you just take too much pre workout and u didn't get a good workout in cause of that and ur just still amped up?

after crunching some numbers and analyzing some data .. it's official. heavy barbell military press is the most alpha exercise. Close second is heavy overhead barbell tricep extension ... basically anything where you lift heavy shit over your head. Disagree/agree?

I agree minus the military part. If it is what I think it is anyway. I like overhead press where you bring the bar all the way down to your pecs, and lean back at the hips. Now that's fucken alpha!

In his defence, the machines are nice and plentiful. Plus I don't mind not having another person hogging up a squat rack

I must be coming down with something.....
Spoiler!


I'm not going to say Squats are the direct reason for my growth lately but you can't deny the fact I've been Squatting heavy as fuck and have been growing a lot in the past couple months.

My 2012 goals are looking to be reached earlier than I had thought.... and Natty too!

Goals for 2012 are 5 plate Dead, 4 plate Squat, 3 plate Bench for reps.

Berz out.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

I've recently noticed this happening to my knees as well. It kind of sounds like I'm cracking my knuckles, but on the knees. I'm not too sure if it's regular or a problem.

^not sure if you know this, but the knees have ligaments attached to them as with the finger bones, so im guessing, so im guessing it is related to the buildup of gas in the synovial flyid that bursts when you flex your knees?

But hey, what do I know right? I've only worked out there for the last 8 months or so.

BTW, I don't regret posting this or my previous post. In the end of the day, it's the gym I go to.
never really had a problem with oval noobs, all you gotta do is ask and they'll get outta the way

That's what my thoughts we're on it as well. I didn't think much of it as my knees don't really hurt. More of a pre-caution thing, I don't want them to be messed up.

^glucosamine, milk, more squats or hamstring and glute work, fixed my knees right up, damn I'm grateful for squats. What it does is it pulls your knee ligaments back iirc, so there's a balance if that's the problem.

However, I'm starting to have a sharp pain after squats/deads in the lower back area, but only on the right side. I only feel the sharp pain on one rep, the first heavy rep. It feels like a bone, an inch or two above the glutes. Any idea as to what? If it continues ill be heading to the doctor to see if I can get an assessment. Hopefully won't have to stop 5x5.

That's what i was complaining about last week in the sacrum area, i applied a bunch of cream and apparently it helped, though it hurt for around 5 days and now it's gone

should check on chiro soon to see if everything's alright
