guess what holiday is coming up
have a nice january.
Hopefully the resolutioners don't come in at 4am and ruin my workout...but I should go during peak hour just to see the clusterfuck
crap...forgot bout that
It's all good.. my gym time is either really early or really late until April 15 (I'm a tax accountant), so by that time all the new year resolutioners will be shaken out
i'm working full time until january 18 when i'm leaving my job
so the only time i really have to work out is the evening. going 10pm or later will keep me up and i won't sleep enough.... going at 7am just ain't gonna happen. i'm FUCKED.
my gym is empty in january because there's no college students there
Tax season I'm usually like 10am-8pm (and usually stay later) 6 or 7 days a week, depending on how far in/how swamped I am... I should be able to hit the gym at 8am, most people will be at work/school at that point. Knock out an hour workout, shower, and get to work by 10... cake. Should be all good after 8pm too, people that just decided to go to the gym recently don't have the dedication to get off their fat asses that late in the day.
my gym is closed on christmas
I hate Januarys for this reason alone. Thank god it's not my primary gym anymore.
Resolution folks and Monday people fuck shit up. Always tons of people at the gym on Mondays, but by Wednesday they are nowhere to be seen. Thats why my favorite days at the gym are Fri-Sun
My gym doesn't really get any more busy duing January than most other months. I think the cardio stuff on the main floor might, but I don't really stop there too long.
Now Mondays there are usually a ton of people there - maybe 2x the normal amount. I am thinking of making that one of my days off and going Saturdays instead.
What is it with Monday that makes it more busy? People that decide they will start going and only make it one day.
cuz they ate/drank/whatever all fucking weekend, and need to repent for their sins
lol at least for a month benching 245 will impress some people
Ya, i just started to go to a new gym in downtown dallas. There are sooo many tools and gays that go there. Also there is one squat rack. Dumbells only go up to 120. There are machines as far as the eye can see..
I only go bc is so close to my job. I cant imagine how much worse it will be come New Years.
I was thinking about this the other day. Home gym ftw.
i wish i had a good gym for home
i was looking at homes with every room being planned out with the focus on a home gym.
2) roommates bedroom (rent out = half mortgage payment )
4) Basement big enough for my home gym. Punching bag for cardio n then anything that doesnt use cables... a dip/pullup apparatus, squat rack, flat bench, plate rack; dumbell rack (those adjustable dumbells seem cheap and flimsy imho.... anyone happy with them?) and an adjustable bench that has the capability of supporting me if i want to do military presses (even tho the squat rack would do for push presses instead) then i was going to make a place to put my little air filled excercise balls in the corner out of pvc pipe....
but then i backed out of buying a home so i could save enough for a good sized down payment,
"i drank 2 beers on friday and gained 10lbs because of it... i'd better go jog 5lbs off on monday"
i like my adjustable dumbells.
If I was using them for bench it would get annoying to have to set them down, take a minute to adjust, and then go straight to my next set.
For anything else where you dont' need to constantly change weight they're great though. i really only use em for arms/sholders, everything else i work at the gym
by that point i'll be jobless and just going to school... i'll have mornings and afternoons to lift most days of the week so it won't matter anymore at that point anyway
