A Thankful T-Nation Guy

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I just wanted to share an experience I had this morning. I was a bit concerned as I pulled into the parking lot at my gym this morning. The limited holiday hours had, no doubt, drawn in just about anyone who owned a membership to the AM hours.

After a bit of searching I found a parking spot in a back corner. As I entered my worst fears were confirmed, the place was packed. My gym is not real big. You can pretty much see everybody who is working out from wherever you are in the facility.

Every single piece of cardio was occupied, from the stairclimbers to the treadmills filled. It is a leg day for me so I headed to the squat rack expecting to ask whomever was there if I could work in with them.

To my delight my leg palace was uninhabited! I actually saw 4 guys curling simultaneously, but none dared entered the sacred grounds of the squat rack area. My planned workout went without a hitch even with the abundance of people in the gym.

And for that I am extremely thankful.

Must be a froufrou gym if no one curls in the squat rack!
