18/03/13 Comercial Gym in Piracicaba Brazil

Pretty fancy place if you like that sort of thing with loads of new CV equipment & weight machines.
They also have some benches & a squat rack which everbody seems to use with big elastic band thingies.
Got a few half decent big bars big bars probably around the 15kg mark and all plates are the hexagonal type.
All the guys are doing arms & all the girls doing legs/arse, more of a social event really for most people here with loads of bonding going on.
Ive been in many gyms worldwide & this place has the most amazing quality of women ive EVER seen, concentrating is not going to be easy.

All sorts of exotic training locations (Aberdeen, Brazil.)

Do you find that training at different gyms this often increases motivation to due the variety, or makes things pants as you can't keep track due to different bars, benches, machines etc.

Thatīs a good question now.

The crude answer would be that sometimes you just have to piss with the cock that you have got.
When i train at my regular gym back home i mainly only use a Oly Bar, Power Rack & a Log, simple as they may be but it is very unlikely to fine 2 of that 3 in most gyms ive been to world wide.
What i tend to do these days is have 2 or 3 regular routines that use progressive resistance when at home & just go with whats available when away but still try to keep the basic compound movements in.
s**tty bars are my biggest problem but something is better that nothing, i always take with me Liquid Chalk, Wrist Supports & Smelling Salts & dont take a belt away to stop me doing anything to stupid and also to keep up my core strenth.
I also find that my motivation can increase when using a new gym, im not a big lifter by Sugden standards but you would be suprised how a gym come to a standstill when there is someone performing a half decent lift.
I know there are strenth athletes from all over the world but the majority of places seem to be obsessed with how good you look and not what you can lift, albeit not giving a f**k about doing leg work. Itīs not unusual to be in a gym where am the only person to ever deadlift or squat where as everone else is doing arms AGAIN.
Anyhoo i think this is turning into a bit of a rant now so i shall stop here.
Got a project coming up in Angola soon so another experiance awaits

Second from last set i got a big into trouble from one of the gym trainers for hogging the squat rack, despite the language barrier i think he got the jist of my feelings in the matter. got invited to the manageress office at the end, dont know what she wanted but was very friendly & smokin hot.

1 x 10 @ 100kg

All done on the bounce in quick time but really struggling to get traction on the silky smooth bar

Finished of with high rep pulldown stuff

Crude answer. Offshore rigs. Hehe. I'm assuming that pun was intended. If not, you've been working for the same place for far too long. I like your quote, I'll have to use it one day. Great answer nonetheless and it didn't sound like a rant.
