Stick to the reps

0[1]I could start the entry off talking about more of the silly things I saw at the gym today. Like the old man that was napping in between sets of standing tricep extensions or the other old guy that came in the same area and lifted his shirt above his nipples to inspect his golden brown, portly physique in the mirror, but I won’t talk about that.

I did mostly core today, part of which was using this Cybex machine which I never tried before.  From a distance you would think you are pulling the handles.  In reality you are locking out your arms and pushing against the handles, ideally only using your core to do so.  At first I was skeptical but after three sets on there I am a believer.  It felt more effective than the older style ab crunch machines where you grab handles up around your ears and try to pull your elbows to your knees.
