Back n biceps tomorrow. Around 11 or 12 is my new workout time, am a night owl, dont hit the hay till 4-5am anyway. i feel stronger at that time and the gym is nice and quiet.

Like the machines in this new commercial gym, but the weight stacks are too small, so i think ill add resistances band to the machine to increase the resistance toward the contraction range.


Hope there was good lighting and you took some pictures :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
