Ok so, I live in France, Paris now. That means, heavy traffic, long time to go to work, and crappy gyms.
To be fast, there is absolutely no gyms with free weights where I can go at least 3 times a week. Most gyms have only machines, and bad machines.
The “best” one I found is a gym with machines + DBs + smiths machines + some “kinesis” machines.
However, I want to train, mostly for mass gain, using strength routines and bb routines in rotation. I was used to a routine designed after “Beyond Brawn” book, which worked good for me but included BB rows, bench press, squat and DL.
Only thing I can do is using the smith for the heavy moves (that means no DL and a crappy squat).
I live in a flat so a home gym is not a possibility. I even thought to go bodyweight workout, but I won’t be able to work my back as I cannot hang a pull up bar. (even using the doors)
What kind of routine would you think of ? Anyone here already had the kind of pb ?
