I finally was asked if someone could use the equipment I was using since I was lifting, what, 16 lbs total and the other guy was lifting 100 lbs? Tough looking kid, but very polite. But the big tough guys — the ones who need spotting and make huge noises while they lift very heavy weights — are now showing up and I don’t see the people I used to see. Well, what I mean is there aren’t as many women to look at.
But in any case I’m taking less time to lift lighter weights but it’s taking more time. Must be all the standing around I do when I move between machines.
