    No, but I soon knew about it trying to do it with 80 instead of 60. Couldnt do as many reps but felt good though.

    Main worry was the bar slipping, need some gloves but without looking a twat.

    I know you know this but, protect your backs at all costs. Mine is fooked.

    I have a degenerative back condition, and have had to change all my fitness to find things that don't cause pain, or set it off. I have discomfort daily, but there are plenty of things I can and have done exercise wise to keep fit, and have just worked round it as best I can. No free weights, only machines as they offer more support, and sadly had to give up running and change to cross trainers, with the occasional jog. Not what I wanted to do, but its what I needed to do, and am left with less injuries and better fitness.

    If you want any advice on pain killers I have been on Codeine for years, as well as the anti inflammatory Naproxen, as well as omeprazole which counters the effect Naproxen has on your stomach (apologies if this is teaching you to suck eggs)

    Hope your backs are better soon!

    Hope your back gets better

    There's a group of us who train early so we tend to spot each other when needed.

    That's not too bad if people can help and give you a bit of encouragement.

    The bench where I go isnt the best so I don't dare go over 75 as I reckon it will end up on me :(

    Is yours a boxing gym or just normal?

    I go to a place in Hove called Cheetahs...it is a spit and sawdust gym from the 70s...it also has a boxing gym attached to it as well. I also have a Pure gym membership for £20 that I sometimes use as well.

    I have managed to get myself stuck under the bar a couple of times...it isn't fun ;)

    It is probably the best gym I've ever been to and you don't get people staring at themselves in the mirror. People also tend to respect each other and don't come up and ask to 'jump on' half way through a set.

    That pisses me off. Always get someone come up and say how many sets you got left mate?
    As many as I fucking feel like you prick!

    nah not at all. nothing wrong with asking how many sets left. if the guy says 5 then you either ask to jump in alongside(if weights dont look too dissimilar to what you will be doing anyway) or you restructure your order of excercises for the day.

    Went to Pure gym the other day and someone actually came up and just started at me and waited while I was on my first set and started looking at his watch. I gave him my best Roy Keane stare and he went off and did the same to someone else.

    In fairness Moff, your jog is probably my sprint. I play 5-a-side twice a week, and try to go out for a run or a ride on at least one other day, and I'm still getting fatter! I know that inside me though is a finely tuned athlete just busting to get out and shine. Possibly two. :)

    I did about the same, however I also probably drank the calories in beer and ate it when raiding Sainsburys by Euston.
