Guys.My mind is just absolutely blown right now.I have no idea what happened. There is a possibility it was an "off" day but I don't think so. I never have off days,especially this bad.
Yesterday I went to 24 hour fitness for the first time [Just purchased a membership] after having gone to another gym for my previous training.
I set up the Flat Bench Press to do my normal Bench session ... suddenly:
1) 135 Warm up feels strangely heavier?
2) 185 Warm up feels even more strangely heavier ??
3) 225 feels like I how 245-265 normally feels for me ...!? !?!?!?!?!
4) 245 feels like I am doing 285-300 pounds !!!!!
I only did 245 for 7 reps hitting failure.
WHAT THE ****
I normally do 245 for about 12 reps without much struggle. It takes me about 285 for 7 reps to hit failure...so this was just retarded!!
EVERYTHING FELT ABOUT 30+ pounds HEAVIER !!!!
The bar felt really small or awkward... I can't really explain it. It felt like it was very thin and flimsy. I couldn't even push the bar straight up in the normal path I normally push it up in. The bench itself maybe was also a little weird.
Don't even get me started on the Incline.... I stopped after 2 sets. Their Incline Bench put me in the most awkward position I have ever felt, I thought I was going to get a Shoulder Injury.
WHAT IS GOING ON!?!?!?!?! Why does their bar feel so much heavier???? I know the barbell at both gyms should be 45 pounds, there's no reason 24 would carry some massive 65+ pound barbell, and I can tell by the weight of the bar itself that it's not.
