I got complaints from the management of the local “Globo” gym for lifting with the wrong plates in the wrong area, so I decided to spend “monthly fees” on my own equipment.

I’m currently working on cardio and mobility to correct a couple of imbalances after a lengthy layoff. I normally follow Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 powerlifting program with a short MetCon after.

Currently, I own three bars: the Barenaked Powerlifting Bar, the B.o.S Bar, the Women’s Olympic bar, 450+ lbs of Dead Bounce bumper plates, a flat powerlifting bench with the fat pad, and the Blitz Air Bike 2.0. My next purchase is going to be the Plate Loaded Cable Tower, as well as insulation and drywall.

My fitness hack is to just get in the gym, even if it’s only 5 minutes. Once there, it’s always a good workout. And buy or make a Deadlift Jack!
