I figure I would need an adjustable bench, a squat rack, an olympic bar with at least 8 plates, then a set of 35's, 25's, 10's, and 5's. After that I would just need the entire rack of dumbells and I would be set.
Except... it's like 3 grand cheaper to just pay 17 bucks a month at a gym around the corner for the foreseeable future.. Stupid economics....GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

Oh yeah Tom, I think you asked what Martial Arts I train in. It is an ecclectic martial art and is a combination of 3 specific styles with the best of others thrown in. The school is called Bushi Ban, and it is a mix of Bushi Do Karate, Bando an Indian martial art, and Burmese kick boxing which is like Muy Thai but they also allow head buts, and joint locks.
We have the Fighter's Elite which is the MMA portion of the school and Bushi Ban is heavily competitive in both Amateur and Professional MMA in Texas and surrounding states. My instructor and I are working on something so I can start training some of the guys and helping them with their diets for fights and what not too. Since I am a little to old to be training now to get in the ring I might as well help create a few champions.

I will for sure take Sunday off. Supposed to do abs, arms, and legs tomorrow but it looks like I have to do some yard work. The FC closes at 9 on Saturday. Got the whole family dinner thing so Idk if I will have the time. To be honest though I would probably skip the abs to give my core a break. Plus wouldnt want to do legs before I go for a big deadlift PR. So that leaves arms which this is a great workout. Basically Im saying Idk wtf Im going to do lol.

Man my gym sux! The smallest plates they have are 5's, no 2.5's, so when your maxin u can only move up in 10lb increments. Super frustrating, bout to go buy a couple 2.5's to bring for deads.

I am not going to try a new max just to add 5lbs onto my old max. Not worth it.

I know I just felt like busting ur balls lol.
Anyway so Im a dumbass lol. The jump from 675 to 685 is a big one especially when u consider Im 7-8 pounds lighter now. Would have put me at 3.058 times my body weight.
Btw I NEED a new belt I hate this POS.
