Went to the PL/Strongman/BB gym for the first time yesterday. I felt so tiny...
So good to be able to do a workout that I actually wanted to do without any compromises. Bench has completely died though. I thought I'd be able to hit 185x5-8 after being able to do 80's for 7 with DB's, but I eeked out only 3 reps before becoming worried that I'd end up pinning myself.
It'll be good to get in a couple of sessions there a week. I think I'll be able to pop into my gym at school for a few accessory things for half an hour every here and there to round things out or to do a double session on days when I'm riding the trainer.
I'm pretty psyched tbh, especially once I finish anatomy at the end of the month, I'll have so much more unstructured time to study and do whatever I want since all our lectures are recorded and we won't have labs anymore. Gonna get jacked between march and may. I'm not really trying to gain weight anymore. I'm at a pretty stable 175. Just trying to do a bit of a recomp to get more full again. If I can use a hack squat, even light, without back issues, it should work out great.
This gym has a reverse hyper. Any advice using it? I really think it'd help my back but I don't want to go too ham with it.
