About the powerlifting gym, prepare to share the powerracks and barbells. People may use one for over 2 hours. Don't camp on equipment without sharing.
Also, don't walk close to or in front of anyone who is lifting heavy. Prob safest to not walk into their line of vision during a set.
Load barbells correctly. That is, no 20+20 plates when you can use a 40 plate. Heaviest plates first, lighter plates towards the end of the bar. Clean after yourself and put back everything you use. Common sense stuff that barely gets used at regular gyms.

Common sense ain't common when regular gyms are full of idiots.

Yeah, I'm good with my gym etiquette, so I'm not worried about that part. I'm also a student so I'm planning on going during the day when it's least busy.

I might just a bench, but I think I'm mostly going to be sticking to the Hammer Strength machines and some of the other stuff like that. I might try using the hack squat machine again to see if I can do that light (135-185lbs) without pissing off my back.



Mostly, I'm just happy to go back to a gym where I don't feel like I'm going to have to improvise to get a good workout. Goal is to go there atleast 2x a week with supplemented workouts from my school gym. I might get some adjustable dumbbells too so I can do some light shoulder/bi/tri/leg work from home since I'll be able to do that light on days when I just jump on the trainer. Housemate has a shitty bench too that we could probably use.

Remove the common sense and add sloth and you'll have my gym, people do all the things you've just said not to do.

Also they leave chalk allllllllllll over the place and pretty much marinate the bars in it. The worst still people not putting the weights back and smearing their perfume all over them.

i hate to sound like a dick but i look at some of the members in the sW&D thread and wonder what kind of genetic junk pool some people come from. how do grown men have 34" chests and size 8 feet?

The junk pool that takes a strong interest in style to draw attention away from their genetically inferior bodies?

post #55673 of 57262

Also finally bit the bullet and got meds for ADHD... should probably have done this in college, but lets see what happens. Still trying to figure out dosages etc, but woah it's remarkable what a difference it makes.

Maybe I should get this for studying.

For those of who you pack lunches for the week/plan your meals ahead of time, what do you guys make for lunches? I get sick of eating the same chicken 3-5 days in a row, need some new ideas and variety

Things I've realized about fashion, can't have any leg mass, pretty obvious but still amazing to see 190cm models having 20" thighs. And more annoyingly, can't have any chest mass. 190cm with a 38" chest isn't normal. Don't understand how those people get by in daily life.

Do you have a microwave?

Feel your abs and obliques and forcefully exhale as much air as possible. The tension in your musculature after you force the last bits of air out is what you're trying to achieve while bracing for a lift.

yes

I think the way you prepare chicken matters a lot. Recently started sauteeing/seasoning with turmeric, paprika, salt, cayenne, and thyme, tastes a lot better than regular seasoning, But I usually fast till lunch then eat oatmeal/cereal, and a big dinner later.
