hope youre feeling better now matt. it always sucks to take a step back from training due to being sick but at least you gave your CNS a break

i love the ab machines and hammer makes a great one – slow hard contractions, full range of motion, stretch and squeeze. i see people do double the weight i will do for 50 half bouncing reps, while im using half the weight failing at 10-12 perfect reps. the same people make NO progress at all except fuck with their lower back. i think every commercial gym is like that
