The young guys at the gym must shit themselves when you start busting out rows with more than they bench. Nice work.

Which is better? Old gym or the new one?

I am leaning toward new one. For the weight you lift, new one. For machine and cable work, old one.

After removing 2 45s I remembered planning on 345 rack pulls for reps. Not as awake as I thought. Saw sun come up in that gym for first time. That place makes me feel stronger. The smell of 20,000+ lbs of free weights.
