Trying to cut again after a possibly successful bulk (which is me sorta trying to cut, but failing at a rate which is a good bulk haha).

Bro day today. Cable overhead tricep extensions, preacher curl machine, one arm tricep cable extensions, seated laterals, rear delt skier things, reverse grip ez bar curl.

And 60 mins incline treadmill walking in between.

All I have to keep me sane atm, is gym.

Went to a Planet Fitness near my hotel. They didn't have free weights, so had to leg press and smith machine bench. Then did some pull ups and triceps push downs. Going back Thursday I guess.

Wow. I had heard rumors about Planet Fitness, but I didn't think they wouldn't have free weights.

Just dumbells, but they didn't go up very high. No free weight barbells at all. Only smith machines for squats or bench. Three plates limit on leg press and two plates limit for smith machines. Better than my hotel gym that only has dumbells to 30lbs, but not a place to get a good workout in.

I sometimes forget how little most people care about physical fitness. I spend so much time working out around people who are well above average in fitness. Gyms that are more about making the experience more comfortable are perhaps important to people who don't want to feel intimidated by people who are physically fit. I don't know. I don't want to be judgmental, but I agree that those places probably aren't great for getting a good workout. Just the overall atmosphere is probably less conducive to even being motivated to be more physically fit.

For sure. I go to a hardcore strength training gym and you get used to seeing stuff that would draw stares at a regular gym. Having done a fair amount of traveling and lifting at gyms all over the country it's rare to see anything impressive at your average commercial gym.

Planet Fitness would be an okay beginner gym. If that's what it takes to get someone going that's great. But if you put in any real effort you would outgrow the equipment within a year or two and would need to move on to keep progressing.
