Gym Diary: Saturday, March 24, 2013

     I'm not an  intensify-and-grind kind of gym guy.  Mild-and-steady is more my style.  I'm never in a hurry.  The gym is where I enjoy spending time, but (obviously) I have only so much time on M-F.  Using the equipment I've posted below took a few hours, but it was on a Saturday, and my plan was to be there awhile anyway.  There no way I could do all the exercises I would like to do in one session no matter how long it would be.  I'm frequently reading about new exercises to try, and my list gets longer and longer.  That's okay!  It means I've got plenty of options!  My goal is not to hurry towards that body I'd enjoy having.  My goal is to enjoy my gym time!
