Didnt really feel like working out, so I decided to take a chance. No pain. Pretty amazing stuff. 275lbs was fucking light. DOH grip too.
Split squat is fun. Last set had 5 reps for each leg. Though its a nice switch up, I am afraid that when I reset to do the other side, the plate is gonna hit a pillar of the cage. Sadly, there is not one squat rack at the UF gym. All Cages.

Caveman x 2
Still some arching going on with bench. Hmm. Is this a failure? I mean, I arched early, as in, the 1st set, but I never lost steam til the 4th or the 5th set. Meaning, doubtful Id finish the regime, but I did, so do I go up? I finished it without anyone help. SOMEONE CHIME IN.
Now that I rested longer, I didnt fail as badly on the DB presses.
Today I just had a long time of sweating from the FL heat before I could hit the gym. Numbers did suffer from it, but not so much.
Besides the obvious, I ditched the flies in favor of more intensity with the dips. Now, I am not sure if I am going to keep this as a staple cuz today was flawed due to heat, dehydration, calories, who knows, but I may keep it.

No place to stretch?!
Kind of dragged my ass here after the news I got today. I figured, fuck it, if I am going to have surgery no matter what, I am gonna work out anyway.
Considering this is a week trial I "won," I wont bother commenting on the workout itself as I think it will differ eventually.
This gym is $52/a month + $29 registration fee. If you sign a 2 year deal, the price drops down to $35 on the 2nd year. However, if you cancel your membership within the year, you get raped with a $120 fee! As far as pros vs cons go, this is a major CON.
-shit load of cardio equipment
-"in thing" here in gainesville
-one squat rack
-too many idiots
-no deadlifts except on platform? so just romanian are allowed?
-no military press allowed
-one squat rack
-no round 45lb plates
-no use for classes
-other locations are too far
-not enough space to safely stretch
-kettlebells only for use by trainers
There is another gym down the road that has almsot all that I mentioned but is cheaper, however, there is some sort of depressing aura that comes with it. I think its cuz its not the hipp place to be. Dont know, but I cant justify paying this much a month.
The school has so much more. It has its cons though...
-deadlifts, military presses, all allowed
-price and its a one lump sum. no monthly fees
-no parking until after 4pm on weekdays (there are ways around this)
-when school closes, this closes (xmas, spring breaks etc)
