Well, I moved back to Nevada and I decided to take the weights class. The thing is, the teacher has some pretty stupid workout routines(Atleast in my eyes). He put me with his “veteran group” and he told me they had been in his class for 3-4 years.
The thing is, most of them had squat 1 rep max at 240 and they had been in his class for 3-4 years. One of the guys had a max of around 300. I had been working out for 4 months and I had a squat max of at least 220 before I went on vacation. I was not impressed at all at their numbers. None of them had anything like protein shake, a couple had Gatorade.
They were also doing barbell lunges I think at 75% of 1rep max. They were using about 65lb. 2 months ago, I was doing walking dumbbell lunges with good form at 47lb each.(That was about 85% of my 1 rep max. )
He was even having them do sit-ups. Yes, sit-ups. The school weight room is actually quite nice, but I just don’t like his routines and I really do doubt that he would let me solo. Do you have any advice? Should I drop this class? The thing is I only need a semester more of P.E.(half a credit). Should I look into doing outside P.E. of thai kickboxing and weights( I can get half a credit from doing that, and I would prefer it and I would also get a period off)?
