    fucking seems like it at my new gym.... I'm doing Pur's routine only I push it back a day and start sunday, which means chest is monday. Anyway, there's never any free benches no matter how late I tear that bitch up, it fucking sucks.

    i notice that people tend to go to the gym more often on monday than on any other days, so maybe that's it.

    word... it's super fucking packed, but I like Maks' idea. Last week on monday I hit up miltary press in the squat rack and it was totally free (we have 3 at my gym).... I'm going to switch it up and see how I like the routine that way. If squat racks suddenly become popular ground on mondays too I'll go back to chest.... it is kind of nice going to an empty gym on sundays and doing my squat workout... but then again having a lot of loud obnoxious assholes around when it's crowded might make me squat better out of anger :mamoru:

    Because they ate like shit over the weekend.

    Then on Tuesday they're like "oh I went to the gym yesterday, I don't have to go today."
    On Wednesday they're like "ah I'm flooded I'll go tomorrow".
    Thursday they're like "oh I'll just go after work tomorrow because I have all the time I need because of the weekend."
    On Friday they're like "I don't want to be sore for the weekend and FUCK it's happy hour right after work!"

    not at my gym dude... there are seriously some big mother fuckers in there and lots of mid-size but cut asians who just sit around and talk all day. on mondays it's packed but it seems like most people there have been working out for years by the looks of them. :dunno:


    then again if I ever did anything near the cardio area I'd probably see a lot of the people you're talking about :rofl:

    :rofl: yeah i've seen a lot of people do some stupid shit in the squat rack... the worst though is when I finally get a squat rack or DL bar and some douchebag comes over with DB's or a curl bar and starts curling in front of the mirror right next to me, so I can't squat/dead because they might bump into the barbell and get me killed, or I might bump into them and hurt them.... so I gotta wait until they finish their set so i can say something.

    there was a hot latina chick doing RDL's in front of me the other day. Needless to say I beat off to the memory when I got home (after my PWO shake of course).

    My gym is weird. It seems like people don't even do that much shit for anyting but bench and arms and cardio yet there's a lot of jacked dudes there. Lots of hot chicks too but they mostly do cardio or yoga and occasionally grace me with their presence in the weight area.

    Legs on Monday ftw!

    A lot of people feel like chest is "more important" than anything else and have a hard time waiting to hit it, hence they do it on Monday. I've always felt like getting legs out of the way on Monday was a good idea else I might be tempted to skip it (could never skip mondays... 3 days, no gym? fuck no)
