A bit short on time. Seems to be happening a lot lately. So I supersetted the 225 sets of squats and good mornings. Made me sweat.

Really solid work out. Ended up working out twice. Once with my usual routine then later in the evening with some random chest/tricep work.

The last session was at a gym. It's the first time in a REALLY long time that I've been in a commercial gym. I went with the wife, her friend, and her friend's boyfriend. Since I already did my thing for the day, I just went with what he was doing.

I used whatever weights he loaded up. I think I surprised him when I took the assistance off the dip machine. For one, I can do dips. And two, that assistance pad thing is awkward as hell. I'm sure it helps people get started, but it seems like a crutch to me.

Gotta say, it's a little haphazard how some people workout. No plans. They just kinda wing it. I guess I prefer more structure so that I have a way to gauge my progress. Plus he kinda went backwards on the sets. Instead of either the same weight or dropsets he went up in weight. He's still kinda new so I'll chalk it up to that.

That said, my chest and arms are sore as hell today. Not sure if this is the right gym for me though. There's ALOT of machines. I'm not a machine guy. I like free weights.
