I get up, make some coffee, and head to the basement.  I really like it.


Yeah this is hard to beat.

Listening do whatever music I like without having to fuck around with earbuds an shit is great to.  I have 3 different streaming services to choose from and a dedicated tablet just for the gym and a nice JBL bluetooth speaker.

But I think the best part is getting everything ready the night before so I can just start lifting right away.

Commercial gyms most times I have to clean up other peoples shit, find the bar I like for the particular exercise, set things up, whatever. It's maddening.

None of that shit to deal with at home.  I already have my rack set up for OHP tomorrow morning because Liam is not lifting tonight.

I set up beforehand for the first time this week.  Can't believe I was too dumb to figure that out before.  My schedule has been Friday with a trainer at his gym, Sunday, and Tuesday night.  Setting up after the workout on Sunday is going to be my go to as long as I'm on the same routine.  I knew you where a smaht ked flex.   8)

It's much easier to set up for the next workout at the end of your current one, especially if you start lifting at 6am half asleep before the coffee kicks in.

But since Liam works out in the evening I can't always do that, unless I know in advance he's taking a rest day.

I try to go down there when he's done and set up for the morning though.
