Only one

one-arm-dumbbell-floor-press[1]Today I was unable to get on the bench presses at Planet Fitness.  One of the two of them was being cannibalized by some guy using the olympic bar for floor work.  I find it rather dumb that the place does not have even one extra olympic bar that could be used for that kind of stuff.  I was pressed into doing nothing but dumbbell chest press work which was ok, but again limited by PF only having dumbbells up to 75 pounds.  I did three sets of 10 at the 75 pound weight to burn up my chest.

At the end of the workout I did some one arm dumbbell chest press, a move another guy was doing at the same time.  Seeing him do the movement motivated me.  I used to do one arm lifts pretty regularly.  The weight imbalance causes you to compensate with your core which obviously is a good thing.  Since I inserted sets of 10 pull ups in between each chest set I emerged from the gym well burned out.
