A new gym opened up near me recently so I decided to join. It’s not my nearest gym but it is a near strength gym with little cardio equipment and loads of strength equipment, some I’ve not seen in any other gym.
So far it hasn’t been too busy so I’m managed to do the workout I’d planned each time. I’ve been 6 times this month already!
I have restarted Strong Life 5×5 and add other exercises afterwards – bar hands, hack squat, box jumps, battle ropes, Jacobs ladder, lying rows, various leg press machines and cable + barbell exercises. I’m still working on a set routine, at the moment I just go with how I feel.
I’m really excited about this and the gym has become my happy place.
Do you stop & start as much as me? Do you have a happy place?
Today (Monday) was the start of week 2 on Stronglifts 5×5.
Current 37.5kg | Previous 35kg | Increase 2.5kg
Current 20kg | Previous 20kg | Increase 0kg
Current 45kg | Previous 40kg | Increase 5kg
I am having trouble with the OHD as previously mentioned so I think I will try it @ 15kg till I have mastered the form, 37.5kg for squat was a push also, I may stick to that weight for a week or so.
I had booked in for 2 classes today but I didn’t manage to get to either. The first I slept through and the second I got the time wrong. Not sure if I will like the classes or not but I’m going to give them a try, I do want to do the functional classes though.
