Entry #714

These fools running my gym almost got to me last week, but I'm feeling more level-headed now. Basically, renovations here mean that almost everything useful is getting dumped.

Both bench press benches are gone (two was already a disproportionate number compared to their rate of usage). The new one that's replaced them is horrible. The pins are set far too low, so you have to pin press the weight to get it set up.
Solution: bench in the power rack.

The power rack is sitting alone and untended to in the off-limits room, which I use anyways. Who knows how much longer it'll stay.
Solution: don't let any construction worker near it.

They got rid of the reverse hyperextension station.
Solution: glute ham raises on one of the many leg curl machines.

Rusty, Soviet-era iron plates have been replaced by wafer-thin rubber ones.
Solution: murder.

ME upper

Floor press:
6 x 3     135, 185, 225, 275, 310, 330 lbs.

Overhead EZ bar extensions:
3 x 8     105 lbs.
Super-setted with:
Bilateral dumbbell curls:
3 x 8     45 lb. dumbbells
> Weights were extremely light in consideration of time.

Bent-over lateral raises:
2 x 16   45 lb. dumbbells

The gym closed at this point, so I went over to the track for pull-ups and ab work.
