I just wanted to get some support movements in for my upper body. I felt really strong on the seated dumbbell shoulder press - but, again; my muscular endurance is still a bit lousy. I'd get 4 reps with no issue, and my triceps would just crap out and the 5th rep wasn't close. They thick bar curls are great - they kick my ass. All the curls are super strict and full range of motion. The thumbless reverse curls on the thick bar are AWESOME! I didn't bring any chalk to the gym, so they were even tougher than I expected. This gym has overly thick plates (http://www.cemcofitness.com/JadeOlympicPlates.htm) and I hate them. First off, they don't have a smooth side like the old style Olympic plates, so they suck for pinching. Secondly, they're much wider than the old standard plates. As such, they're really tough to keep together, so I can only manage 2 or 3 of them on the pinch curl. Maybe I need to find a new gym...maybe I just need to get stronger.
