@John
Trust me brother, I’ve witnessed his gym. It’s amazing the stuff he has in there! I was lucky enough to work once there!


#385

That’s awesome bro


#386

yes it is thanks man :smiley::smiley:…its been VERY instrumental in my journey. if u have the space…craigs list :rofl::rofl: i got pretty descent stuff for a fraction of the cost and most of the stuff are older gym quality stuff or home/rehab facility units. they work well and they get the job done :rofl::rofl:. i do have regular memberships though…but when the schedule gets stupid or I get sick as a dog like I was …as well as those days where you just don’t feel like going out anywhere it’s pretty handy to have.


#387

So you lucky guy :wink: nothing just train. Yea my problem is i dont have space but that maybe change soon and then i will build something like you have. Enjoy.

so…just a little bit ago…i decided to pick a fight…its been long overdue. .for ME…to get into it…

so…i did…

yes…i picked a fight with my life fitness cross trainer…see…since i cant do legs like squats and lunges…or even lower/full body like dead lifts…i resort to high intensity high resistance with this bad boy…i tested the waters in the ring with this late last night when i upped the levels by 1…so instead of 16…17 the main work out and on the cool down instead of 17…18…i did it for 35 minutes…i managed…so i decided to go all out…i was nervouse…kinda almost backed out…but i though…u know what…i am am going to fight this fight…and plan to stick it out the whole 65 minutes…

and…

i did it!..this was a nice accomplishment…so now i have set a new level…and i will tough this one out from now on on 35 or 65…then after a while move to 18/19…this one only goes to level 20 resistance…and to think a few months ago i was at 8/9…

so tonight i am not sure what i am going to do for weights…but i plan on something see how i feel…


#394

#395

ooo yea! :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: but it feels soo good :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

so…fasted cardio…level 17 resistance all the way…hill mode…10 minute interals split with forward and reverse…and with arm and then just legs…

65 minutes…5 minute cool down kept bumping it up to 18 resistance the whole time.
