Today, I went to a gym I haven't been to in decades. Its the main campus gym where I work but I go to the small outpost that is in my building. It was fun because I got to use a rowing machine (the cardio kind) which I always enjoyed. My forearms are the part of my body most likely to succeed at body building so rowing is fun for me.
I recently developed a pretty specific workout schedule so today was what I call a "push" day which means that the exercises I do were all presses and things like presses. It took me a while to find all the equipment I wanted to use and it meant moving from one room to another. But I got the job done. What I did notice was that the overall level of intensity seemed much greater than at my usual gym. My gym is pretty small but has almost no real lugs. I saw more today than I've seen in a while (and I o to Planet fitness on weekends so I feel like I should see them if they are out there).
It was fun but also a little intimidating. I'm sure I'll go back if only to use the rowing machine.
Oh, and I found this hilarious (also crude, sexist, and probably not safe for work or children) series of videos on youtube. I'm bit embarrassed at how funny I find them to be. It's really not my usual kind of humor.
