Yeah. I found a big gym in Hilo on Saturday. Day pass is $15, which is just beyond my usual limit, but since I hadn't lifted for over a week, I decided to go for it. First I took my wife to lunch (very good Italian) and then walked around for a half hour or so. Went back to the gym to learn that they close at 3 PM on Saturdays, leaving me just 35 minutes to change clothes, work out and change again. Not for 15 bucks. I'll try them again on Monday. Or body weight.

How much sympathy do you really expect to get knowing you are in Hawaii?

Well, at least a little.

I went back today and lifted. It was the usual mix of teens early-twenties benching and curling. Two guys were squatting in the rack next to me. One was criticizing the other for not going deep enough, but the other guy was arguing. Felt good to know that at least one person there believed in going to depth.

$15 day pass. $5 for a bottle of Muscle Milk.

Feels funny, I guess. It pushes down on the front of my shoulders, and the back part doesn't dig into the groove. Weight's too far forward--I might as well front squat. In fact, it might be a good substitute for FS somettime.

They also have a square DL bar, not a trap bar, but the same idea. I thought about trying it, but then forgot and grabbed a regular bar, but I did find one that was smooth, and only tore up my shins a little. I didn't have my DL leggings.

What's an Lt. Squat?

I'd think "light" except you did 4 x 10 x 185, which isn't very light when your 3+ set is 190 . . .

OK, ok. Front squat is one of the THREE most boring exercises--side planks and running round out the group. So someone still reads my log besides me!

Consider this - you have 400 posts and 63643 views. That's 159 views per post. I would say a lot of people look at your log.
