Day 21 of the #shortcuttostrength trainer and I trained shoulders today. I got to the gym in the morning as I was still in Manchester and had my pass to use. I went to a gym called Total Fitness and it was a bit of a strange experience. I walked in and the place is nice it had a cafe area overlooking a pool area, it had a family gym area which had climbing frame and kids gym equipment next to a few pieces of normal gym kit so parents can workout with their kids which I think is great! I then went upstairs to the gym area which was surrounded by several studios with things like spin, karate, boxercise classes going on. The gym area itself was good as there was a range of different kit suitable for all sorts of training. They even had a selection of hammer strength equipment which I was keen to use. I started in the hammer strength plate loaded shoulder press and worked up to some heavy sets with that before doing some heavy barbell press. From there I just used all kind of machines and equipment to hit my shoulders from different angles. The gym itself was in a complete mess though. Everywhere you looked there were dumbells on the floor, barbells left next to their rack rather than on them, weight plates left on machines and bars all over the place which is really annoying as every time I wanted to use something I would have to take off what people were using or wander around and look for kit! I didn’t do any dumbell work really as they were all missing and spread around the gym! Looking at some of the people there as well didn’t help as they were doing all kinds of weird stuff! I don’t really blame them as if they are not used to going the gym then their technique and knowledge of machines isn’t great then people start doing weird stuff. The problem was there was no gym staff around at all! I saw one trainer and he was just working with someone for ten minutes and then disappeared! Just to have one person on the gym floor encouraging people to tidy their stuff up and helping to correct people’s form would be better than nothing! I am probably moaning a little too much but I’m sure I’m not the only one to get annoyed at this stuff!!
