Well, I’m officially a home gym user. The commercial gym that I had been a member of is notoriously hard to cancel, but, I managed.
Here’s a look at what we’ve got set up in the basement right now.
The squat rack and bench w/ lat pull down attachment. Getting the lat pull down guy on there is a bit of a production that definitely requires two people.
Right now the two of us are working our way through the Break In phase of the original New Rules of Lifting.
The only thing I do not like about the break-in phase is that it’s written to help improve your muscle endurance, so it’s 2 sets of 15 reps. 15 reps makes me want to jab my eyes out. I’d so much rather do 3 sets of 10, but hey, that’s not the program. So, 2 sets of 15 it is.
As of last night we’re halfway through break-in, and will probably continue that until we leave for our vacation to the Dominican in 3 weeks. The trip to DR will stand as a rest week, and then we’ll start up with Fat Loss I.
