Finally decided to ditch my old gym and join a good gym. I used to lift at my school's gym as a faculty member there, but now I am lifting at a place called The Gym. It's a small garage packed with all sorts of goodies, including heavy dumbbells, reverse hypers, GHRs, monolifts, 5-6 different kinds of squat/bench bars, bands, etc. None of the fancy machinery I'm used to, though, which means I have to wave goodbye to the HS Iso Lateral High Row, my favorite machine
Anyways, basically everyone at this gym follows the conjugate method, so I will do the same. Hoping to find some stable lifting buddies, but until then we'll see where this takes me.

Today's entry is not terribly exciting. First set of GMs I messed up my setup on my last triple attempt. I was instructed, or I heard, to push my arms up to start the positive of the motion, but that made me dump the bar and trash it after one rep. I should have attempted again, but I went ahead and moved on to the next thing. It gets worse - I pulled my hamstring on the next movement. Nothing serious, but had to call it a day soon afterwards.
