    What's annoying is, people asking how many more sets you have on whatever machine.
    We got on decline bench. This guy walks up and ask how many more sets? Told him we just got here. But you can work in with us. He said no thanks he just wants to do setups......:confused: there is a decline bench right next to me. He said no. I want this one. Well, fuck off and wait.

    Most people will let you work in with them. Or just give up the machine. Then others think they need all the machines. Lol

    No I understand and appreciate the superset... I superset stuff in all my workouts. But in a commercial gym setting where others need equipment people should do it in a quick and courteous way. Like bring dumbbells over to the squat rack with a bench so you can hit them both quick back to back. Or align your exercises so that you can superset stuff with the same equipment or in the same place at least.

    But hell, that's why I built my own gym. Can't stand all the downsides to commercial gyms, people being probably the most irritating.

    Idk how y’all have time for supersets. I barely barely take a break between sets/reps. I can do all my workouts in usually an hour.

    4 sets of 6/8/10 depending on weight

    And usually do 4 workouts per area too. Like if it’s chest/bicep day I’ll do 4 chest and 4 bicep. Doesn’t take long at all being one person. Don’t really see the need for supersets.

    I do need to start going harder tho cause I don’t get sore anymore. And no buddy means no spotter so I guess lighter weight and more reps is the answer on that one.

    Yeah people’s lack of gym etiquette can be frustrating. The worst are carrying dumbels, etc. across the gym and not returning them, or taking up equipment while messing with your phone and not letting someone work in.

    Opposite, supersets save me time. I need 30-120sec rest between sets, if I did that for all my exercises I'd be nearly 2hr/workout. I get done in an hour or so because I will superset say lat pulldowns with incline bench.

    Soreness is a terrible indicator of whether the workouts are effective. If your weight or amount of reps has plateaud though, then yeah exercises aren't demanding enough. Also measurements are another way to knowing if you're moving the needle.

    But if you cruise through your workouts with 8 exercises and essentially no breaks it sounds like you're ready to push your weight up on the stuff you can do so safely.

    You have to start somewhere.
    That's how I was when I first started working out with stevo. Putting on and taking off the plates is a workout also. Lol

    Thanks for the share. That's interesting, looks like they copy all the Rogue stuff (which I'm fine with). I'll definitely go check them out before I pull the trigger on anything.

    I do a sort of modified version of Stronglifts yeah
