so does that mean his gym's plates max out at 25kg? am I reading this wrong? my gym doesn't have barbells so there's a whole gym genre that I'm not that familiar with

lot of gyms have those shorter barbells in set weights in both straight and curl bars. The lightest is 20 or 30lbs, heaviest I've seen at my gym was 120lbs(iirc)

i assumed he was doing one arm dumbell curls but i may be wrong. he did say he sits down while doing it, which seems weird for bar curls? idk i don't lift weights i just do bodyweight shit

he's not huge but he thinks he is. he has invisible lat syndrome and talks about how hard it is to buy a blazer that fits because his guns are so big

does anyone use an app to track their reps/sets/load?

i'm keeping notes in "Notes", but there's gotta be some free app that makes this a bit more convenient - any reccs?

I've been training for a marathon (40-50 miles/week) and only really started losing weight once I decided to quit sugar and alcohol about a month ago.

Now losing a pound or two a week and truly have no clue how anyone who's not doing insane cardio like this actually loses weight.

First workout after long layoff last night went okay, struggled a little in the beginning but slowly got into the groove. Did full body, light weights, just machines. Feel pretty out of it today though

I think I'm dying

my gf told me that I can't take my annual break from the gym until after ren fest season

she got me this gladiator? blacksmith? costume and I need to be ripped as hell to pull it off properly

kinda nice to have a reason to keep pushing into the fall and then I'll just collapse like a building in december for a couple months

the war on carbs has begun. i'll eat them again when i start exercising, but for now it's probably just easier to cut out pasta and potato, my two loves. i'm at the halfway point of my 30s and it's now or never.

had time to get into yoga before work today. so did that. yesterday's PT session got cancelled cos she slept in so gonna do 3 sessions next week. oooooh. this whole week has been too busy with work. and the next two weeks i'm already booked into overtime so i got a good feeling it's gonna set me back a bit. but on the plus side i'm feeling really guilty on days i don't go to the gym and i do feel bad about not going instead of like relieved or however i would expect myself to feel so that's a good sign? man i don't even know where i'm supposed to schedule that 3rd session next week ugh. fortunately my weekends are still (relatively) unbusy so i'll get a chance to do sat/sun.

alright SO. saturday nothin. was gonna do the upper body workout that we missed doing on thursday but by the time i got home i was too dead so had a great sleep and got ready for sunday morning. HIIT and yoga. got there on the later bus so just barely made it into HIIT with no time for the little mini-workout before. anyway got through HIIT and killed it. stayed for yoga which was also good. i was also gonna maybe do like a double dip and squeeze in that upper body later in the day but also didn't because i'm lazy! so i still have that one written down in my back pocket i'll whip it out probably next weekend. this week i've got a full load with the missed thursday appt. getting thrown into this week so it'll be today's PT session, yoga, PT, PT, yoga, weekend (sat either nothing or like light cardio maybe or nothing) and then sunday i'll do the HIIT/yoga again. busy week!

so today was another leg day! started with regular warmup on the treadmill then the leg warmup for the workout doing banded walks down the turf with abductors on the end. these sessions seems pretty well-defined so i'm getting used to the routine. started again with barbell squats, this time we started where i finished last time at 95, then moved up to 105, 105 again and finished on 115 for two less reps than the first three (8). then we moved onto walking lunges this time using the barbell (40) instead of individual dumbbells. these aren't getting any easier and i sitll hate them lots. next up was hamstrings but instead of the lying machine this time we did isolated on the cable machine and this one was superset with the banded side-walks. and then we had 5 minutes left so finished up with a burnout doing more cable machine squats 2 sets of 15 reps. and i feel like i'm maybe forgetting something but maybe not.

I was working out after 11p last night like I typically would do and this alt lookin lady comes up and asks if I'm a normal person, she said she assumed most the people that are there that late
were either between jobs or suffering from mild depression and using the gym as an escape like her. I just kind of laughed it off. I mean yeah on the mild depression but I go late because it's easier to get workouts in after work.
