I truly hate this time of year at the gym. I was in early enough to beat the power rack curler, but by 4:30 the place is packed. Fun comments today, though. Two guys wearing about 20 pounds each of clothing (hoodies with the hoods up and belts cinched tightly on the outside) were amazed that I could squat 225 on a box 'that low'. One of the regulars - a young girl who has been training there for as long as I have - remarked on the lunacy of squatting and deadlifting in one workout. The best, though, was the older guy with his Powerhouse t-shirt and fanny pack, who came up to me when I was unloading the bar after doing good mornings, and told me I was bending over way too far doing my squats. Heh. I just told him I meant to do them that way (although I'm now worried that I'm bending my knees too much). I should have explained it, I guess.
Usually by March they are all gone.
