In the past year I’ve been to 4 different gyms. When I start going to the new gym, I become weaker. I don’t know what it is. I just go backwards for 2 weeks and have pathetic workouts, then I usually start to PR again. It’s happening again. I’ve joined a new gym for the winter break. It’s the best gym I’ve ever been a member of: Monolift, Thick Bars, Flipping Tiers, Logs, Reverse-Hyper, and the stereo is set to a Sirius Hard-Rock Station. And even though I’m psyched to be there, I’m not as mentally or physically capable of kicking ass as I normally am. I usually get the Incline Dumbbell Bench Press with 85s for more than 12 but today I couldn’t get more than 10 with the 85s on the flat bench. My pull-up record is 25. Today I cranked out 11.
Does anyone else experience this new gym adjustment period?
