I have decided that I will work around what I have at the gym. This requires me to go back to basics and probably delete many of the secondary or support exercises. As much as I want the home gym it won't fit in my garage where I have room; on the side but under the garage door. I'm not parking my car outside, and I don't want it set up outside, so no options are left. I'm OK with this as it has probably happened for a reason. Today's lift was a nice step in that direction. I'll figure it out over the next few sessions. That said, no lat pull or decline press?! ONE leg extension and two funky curl machines? I do secondary exercises for muscular endurance as well to strengthen the weak links. Could be I get a small gym set for home and do my big lifts at the gym.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that after one week here I feel very fortunate to be living in Southern California. It will be 75 degrees today and this is the view I have as I drive over the bluff at Dana Point into town each day. Business (the reason I'm here) is great and I feel that even though my start at training has been slow, I will adapt and love the program I end up with. Most importantly I feel fortunate to have all of you in my life, whether directly or indirectly. Merry Christmas and/or happy holidays. Thanks so much for your support. Bubba
