A note about this post. My college has two seperate gyms, One called the dungeon is just benches, a power rack, and dumbbells which is where I always lift. The other is a high tech cybertech room with tons of treadmills, machines, and dumbbells.
I was going in for a night lift which I never do, seeing as I train in the mornings, and to my surprise the dungeon was closed for painting… It was off the the sissy gym commonly refered to as “big blue”
When I got there i was hardly pleased. Nothing really to do leg work on, and I counted 5… no wait 7 guys in wife beaters doing curls until their arms fell off.
At this point I dont know what happened but I really just wanted to squat some serious weight infront of these guys. I guess from months of reading T-Nation the idea of a bi day really urks me.
So i began to squat on the smith machine amongst the Bicep Brigade. working up to 3 plates on either side on the smith machine, something i’ve never done. I only got 3 reps but it was after many many warm up sets making sure i went low enough to make sure i got the message across. “you should be squatting”
My legs were cooked after that, but it was an awesome lift, even if it was only squats.
