Thinking about getting back into the gym. It's been about two years since I've put a serious effort in and I severely lack the motivation I once had. My apartment has a small gym with basic free weights, one squat rack, a cable machine, and cardio stuff. I know things get easier once I start but I need a push. A few things I'm thankful for is I haven't lost much mass(still about 180lbs @6ft) and since I'm a mechanic my muscles gets used on a daily basis. Still need to be super careful about my joints(shoulders and knees especially) so as to avoid injury.
Last week I bought a Captains of Crush #1 gripper(140lbs) just for fun and surprise surprise I can close it fairly easily. My bodybuilder boss couldn't even manage to close it!! And before you say I should workout with my boss you should know he drives an hour away just to workout at a specific gym and he will stay there until like 10pm. F*** that haha!
