Man, ima tell you what... That reverse pyramid chest day Thursday has thrown me for a loop. I did legs Friday, cardio and abs yesterday and I was supposed to golf this morning with my dad but he's down with his back so I went to the gym and did shoulders and I'm STILL sore from Thursday. Unbelievable. Must be those reverse pyramids.

I had to basically just do traps and rear delts today to avoid my upper chest and front delts...

did you get some good pump from it?

I've got 3 weeks of full body workouts under my belt now, and only one week of reverse pyramids. from doing the reverse pyramids i can already feel my pecs pushing into my biceps.

Hey biscuit, can you recommend some good gyms in WIlmington, I'm going to be looking to join one in the next month or so but the online reviews seem to be all over the place.

Well its probably gonna depend a lot on your definition of good.

The WAC is pretty nice but expensive. I'm not a fan of Planet Fitness, But that's just me. I have a Golds membership and usually go to the Long Leaf gym. I would describe it as just OK, nothing special. It's on my way home and so it works for me. Their Racine gym is much nicer, and so is Porters Neck, but I know Racine is usually pretty crowded.

Never been to, or heard anything either way about O2 at Mayfaire.

I hope that helps.

That's quite the coincidence that your fav bar is next to your gym there JR.

The doors are literally 1 ft.apart from each other. It's easy to confuse the two. Not my fault.

Anyway...I nominate this as the Huddle Workout T-Shirt:

Yeah, that Golds is really close by to my work and I have another guy at my work that goes there in the morning. I'd probably be going after work most days and wanted something clean thats not too crowded and not too many sketchy members.

I had heard Crest Fitness was nice but that's too far out.

Thanks

Which one? I would not describe any of the Golds as "sketchy" and the Long Leaf one has definitely improved... some new equipment, etc. It's just not "great" by any stretch...

It fits me bc it has a large free weight area and it's literally halfway between my office and house.
