Are we still planning the parade?! Classic Canucks:lol:.
fuck im paying 98 now.. shits retarded, but im moving soon so i have to tough it out for a while since i think you pay for install with them no?
Damn, son. I pay $40/month for 25 mbps. But yeah, ask Telus for a student deal in September. A friend of mine was on a really good plan before he moved.
Make sure you make as much noise as possible. Throw the dumbbells to the ground so everyone knows you just finished a set and it was with massive weight. Also, start every set with an amazing routine: slap your abs, exhale as loud as you can, pump yourself up and when finished announce your accomplishment with an emphatic "YEAH".
mostly good advice - except for the smith machine, they're horrible so avoid them like the plague. and instead of doing all those curls do chinup and pullup variations instead as they offer way more overall benefit.
I'm only really suggesting the smith machine to avoid having to walk around with dumbbells or use a barbell. It sounds like he's working out alone and most people aren't too comfortable doing bar exercises without a spotter or truly knowing what their limits are. I agree, it's not the best, but it's an option.
Here's a list of what i have been doing in case anyone is interested. Generally have 0 time constraints right now as im injured [HTML_REMOVED] single! I've only been using machines as i dont want to carry weights around with my knee being screwed.
Chest flys - no idea what the are called but that sounds familiar
Back - rowing motion
back - pull down.
traps pull up with two cables.
Shoulder flys. Basicaly a backwards chest fly.
I dont really have any goals. Its just to not put on a bunch of unnecessary fat whilst being injured and getting out of the house.
That's not a bad list of things you're doing. You can definitely expand the list and get a better work out of each muscle group. It really all depends on how much equipment your gym has.
If your gym has a smith machine, you can do more bar exercises. Incline press, military press, shoulder shrugs and bench press (Not sure how these will affect your legs but you can give them a try). You can expand your bicep work out considerably with doing variations of curls. Hammer curls, standing curls, incline curls, preacher curls, reverse curls. You can also do different variations with pulldowns: wide grip and close grip.
