    this makes the 2nd time i jacked myself up working out at the gym while looking in the mirrors.

    at home, i'm used to staring at the fence and mentally doing the form-checks.

    last night i was pulling what should have been an easy 315x1 and my form was off as i was staring at my toes in the mirror, forgetting all my mental checks, and thinking doods were staring at me 2 feet away on the dumbell bench.

    so i pulled it where i circled with yellow.

    :hsd::rant2:

    it's feeling a little better after a hot shower + 4 advil + muscle relaxer but anything from just stabilizing my core to bending over to standing erect was hell late last night until the shower this morning.

    we'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    cliffs: working out in crowded gyms distracts the shit out of me

    but mirrors at the gym suck because they make you look bigger than you really are

    because you look at the mirror at the gym and you think you see a muscle and then when you leave and look at the mirror at home reality comes crashing down and you spend the next 72 hours crying and curled up in a little ball eating chicken. THats what i do at least.

    I go to two different gyms, one is an olympic lifting gym with no mirrors near the platform so you can concentrate on the gym, and the second in the 24hr in North Beach in the city where you find a hot bitch everywhere you look. I find I get better workouts at the first gym but I fucking love going to 24hr

    uni gym ftw. the hottest girls on campus are always working out (maybe there's a correlation????) the weight room is it's own separate room, so it's mostly dudes and the occasionally hot attention whoring slut, but the cardio is where it's at. 75%+ chicks, most of which have those skin tight pants/shorts on bouncing up and down on the elliptical.

    example:
