Today, Willie didn't feel like training at the studio.  He wanted a change of scenery and me not sure how my shoulder would feel(being a bench day and wanted to go heavier) I agreed.... So we decided to check out a Goodlife Fitness(your typical 'Globo Gym').   I must say that I have been training in my box for over a year now and have not been in a typical gym environment in a looooooong time.

They are just too damn pretty and full of lost souls.  With trainers who can't even train themselves, the poor pathetic souls attempting to change their lives, are being led by people who are trainers because their is nothing else to do......   I better stop because this will turn into a HUGE RANT that too many people have gone off on before.  to the training.

Bench Press: 135x10, 185x7, 225x5, 275x3, 315x2, 365x2, 405lbs x 2reps x 5 sets
with DB reverse laterals 45's x 25

Close grip bench Press: 315x8x2

WGSChins: 3 sets of 33
with single arm tricep pressdowns(cables):  lots of weight to failure each arm x 3 sets

Dumbell Pullovers: 100lbs x 12 x 3 sets

Change of scenery was good.  Simply because it reminded of how important a good atmosphere is for training.  And it has simply perpetuated my belief that I would be better off to train by myself, as a LONE WOLF,  in a box the size of a closet,  than to surround myself in a pretty place with PUPPIES.

I can't wait to open The Dynamo Barbell Club soon so that I can create this atmosphere on a grander for others.

My right hip is starting to feel a little bit better.  It is only sore at the bottom of my squat when I look for it or if the weight is too heavy.

Front Squats: 135x5reps, 225x3reps, 315x2reps
Back Squats: 405x2, 455x1, 495x1, 545x1, (add belt) 590lbs x 3 reps x 3 sets  
These were not pretty and did not feel as I would have liked.  But I can't be feeling on top of the world all the time and I know that once my hip feels 100% I won;t be forced out of my proper technique.

1/4 Squats off 9th pin: 765x2, 855x1, 910x10

box jumps: 5reps x 5 sets
