Yeah, this would probably get your rack taken in my gym too... the dumbasses don't know how to take weights off when they're done, so we just assume they're done if they're not actually standing there...

Gym ettiquete though, gym ettiquete. That also pisses me off though, so i know how it is.

Yeah, I live in matthews.  I used to lift at Siskey all the time 2-3 years ago.

 

 

It was way too crowded for my taste.  I think they were in the process of expanding when I left, though, so it may not be as bad now.

Its much nicer now. Its crowded, but I know how to avoid it now. Its the only gym thsat I can find that has  a power rack with platform.

yeah, mine definitely doesn't have a platform.

 

We have only 2 power racks and 4 benches, but they're barely.ever.occupied. (wtf)

 

also I'm not going to even pretend i'm anywhere close to your level ITT, as I've only been doing lower body work for 4 months and only squat 165 for reps ATG

Hey everyone. I took a well deserved, well needed 4 day break and kicked it back on today. I wasn't pleased with the past few weeks when it came to pushing myself when it came to weight. So, to remedy, I upped the weight on my bench press and squat. It was only a few kilos but it sure felt alot better. I also decided to start from month 2 week 1 instead of finishing week 3. The elbow issues are slowly healing themselves thank God. I also decided to cut out the dumbell flies and good mornings and introduced a circuit of BO rows and Decline weighted sit-ups. 3x each. FUN NIGHT.

 

Monthly Training Plan - 2

Ouch, those are hard to incorporate regularly. are you using it for all main exercises? or just as a part of your regular programing.
