Keep up the good work, ernst.>>56295
I used to have a neighbor who would do forms at sunrise. Would pass him while walking or running. We never spoke more than polite hellos, though, so I don't know what his technique was. >>56393

I lift, but am not big. Blogpost incoming:
Moving involved getting a new gym, which is much better than my old one. That was a community gym/fitness center for residents, with just enough options to get the job done. Now I'm going to a local chain which has more machines than I'll ever need, and piles of free weights in every corner. Dumbbells up to 100lbs, too, which was the first thing I looked for.
The downside is that the dumbbell rack draws the heaviest traffic, so using them has involved negotiating for floor space with serious gymbros and actual girls
. And the best benches aren't directly in front of the dumbbells either, so I have to pick what I need and carry them a bit. It's ok, but makes progressing up or down the rack tough.
Oh, the place also has a hex bar for shrugs, which I never dreamed I'd get a chance to use before now. Just a beautiful hunk of steel lying against the wall.... Haven't tried it yet, but will(have a minor elbow injury I'm working around at the moment). Oddly, though, with everything else I haven't seen a crossover cable machine. Eh, I can do without.
Bench 80kg, but haven't squatted or deadlifted in years. Yeah, I use running as an excuse to skip leg day.
Oh, speaking of, there are bloody hills here. Maybe not big ones for those of you near mountains and such, but compared to where I was in Florida the difference is striking. Now there are distinct up and downhill stretches everywhere, and it's been a new experience running them. Killed my hamstrings, tbh, but I'm adapting.
