    Wink Will going to the gym once a week make a difference?

    I've been working out for a while now at home every other day. I have an ez-curl bar with over 100lbs of plates, a set of 65lb dumbbells, and a set of 40lb dumbbells. I've been making steady progress, getting good size. I mostly do upper body workouts since my equipment is very limited. I want to start going to the gym once a week because I would like to hit some compound lifts with actual weight. I cant justify paying 30-40 dollars a month on a gym membership when I'm getting good progress at home. I've had memberships in the past but eventually I stop going and get stuck with a useless bill. Only reason I want to go to begin with is to work on my legs and my back. So my question is, would going to the gym once a week and working on some compound lifts benefit me in any way or no? keep in mind I'm not trying to be a professional body builder..

    Where do you live? Not all gyms are 30-40 dollars a month. Actually, my gym is $10 for entry fee and $12/month.
    Short-Term Running Goals:

    800 - 2:22
    1600 - 5:10
    3200 - 11:15

    Goal Weight: Whatever works for me.

    Lifts:

    Bench: 140 x 4 + 135 x 5 x 4 (Goal: 145 x 4)
    Squat: 185 x 4 + 180 x 5 x 4 (Finally gaining strength back) (Goal: 200 x 3)
    Deadlift: Lol (Goal: Rofl)

    Are there any other gyms close to LA Fitness? I do agree, LA Fitness's price is outrageous and isn't needed unless you like the extra chit that it offers.
