    I agree.
    Most gyms I've been to are machine and cable. I always stuck to barbell or dumbbell, but now that this gym has bumper plates and the platform, I'm going to get my power clean on. By far my most favorite exercise.

    Nice dude. The owners of my gym said they may have found a buyer so my gym may not be closing, fingers crossed haha.

    Having a platform and bumper plates is awesome for deads.

    Bumper plates suck for deads man, they take up the whole DaMN bar and won't let you pile on more than 405.

    With traditional bumpers (black ones) you can fit 585 on the bar and with completion bumpers you can fit 765 I believe and that's standard bar if I'm not mistaken.

    But your right bumpers suck but because they are larger in diameter so you are cheating by half a inch IMO

    The ones at my gym arent that thick I could probably get 5 on the bar. Also, they are only a tad bigger in diameter, i can i can do the same reps/weight that i can with regular plates. The biggest thing for me is that they dont clank around so much so people tend to bitch less.

    We've only got one set of bumpers at my gym. If I'm maxing the space on the bar and can't fit collars I'll use bands to keep the plates on. Works pretty well.

    Hit 6 sets of 3 at 365 today, them continued on for extendions, curls, lunges, calves, and some jumps.
    Did Jacobs ladder afterwards.

    Switched gyms. Love the new one.
    Today's nutrition was iffy.
    Just cracked an egg and filled the rest of my pan with egg whites, sprinkled cheese on it.
    Tuna, mayo, relish.
    More eggs.
    Greek yogurt mixed with peanut butter.

    Then I globbed a bunch of peanut butter and pressed it against the roof of my pups mouth... she's still staring at me and avoiding me :cool:

    Surprised myself today. Hit 5 sets of 3 at 295 on bench. 6th set was 2 reps and a last lousy rep... triceps pooped out on me halfway.
    Knocked it down to 225 and hit it for 17 reps... must have been the bagel I ate last night covered in peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar....
    Did a few sets of cables and 5 minutes on the Jacobs ladder...
    Gotta say... kinda bored with the low volume, slow paced lifting

    Alright guys full disclosure.
    I put more effort into adding stickers to this picture than I have at the gym lately.....

    Just lacking the motivation to lift, but I've been spending lots of time outdoors enjoying the weather with my pups.

    My lats definitely got bigger.... I have no idea how. I guess all dem pullups are finally paying off huh?

    Too early for me for a full serving, maybe 3/4 of a serving. 8:30 is about the earliest I like to lift heavy.

    This is my normal lifting time on weekdays. Usually around 11 on weekends.

    I like banging it out in the morning, wake up right and get in the mood to crush my agenda.

    Have a great day @Perrin Aybara !!

    I can officially say I pulled myself out the slums today, had a killer chest workout today. Did decline for the first time in years. No shoulder pain.

    10x3 at 275 decline bench
    6x5 at 80 lbs dumbbell alternating flat press (5 each arm)
    5x6 hammer chest press at 2 and a 1/4 each side
    3x10 Pec Deck fly @100lbs
    2x15 svend press with 2 - 10lb plates
    1x 20lb cable fly from top.
    Alternated between each arm with no rest and did ascending reps of 1,,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,25,30.

    8 rounds of kettle bell swing 20 sec on 10 sec off, then 15 minutes walking on 15% incline at 5mph followed by 3 sets of Calf raises, going non stop for 1 minute each set at only 40lbs.

    Rested 30-35 secondo between sets. Got some pics today.

    Gym bathroom doesn't have the best of mirrors so... apologies.
