PM Workout

The apartment complex gym was crowded, some dude was having some kind of epic, intense battle to the death in his own head for the shitty, rusty bench press machine. So I just did pec deck while I waited.

Pec Deck (30 sec rests)

1 plate x 15
2p x 15
3p x 15
4p x 15
5p x 15
6p x 15
7p x 15
8p x 15
9p x 15

notes: after all this, he was STILL on bench press, so I gave up and went to do cardio. 2 min after starting cardio, he left the bench press for the pec deck. LOL. After 1 half-hearted set of pec deck, he turned around and left. But I am too stubborn to stop doing cardio once I have started it, so whatever.
