i'm stuck in a bad gym membership like a bad marriage

...but i see a bumper plate affair at the end of the tunnel.

To anyone in Singapore, I'm here for a year and would love to get a WOD in occasionally. I just found the Crossfit gym here (www.crossfitsingapore.com) and plan on doing oly workouts there and a group WOD occasionally, as often as I have time to travel there. For most other workouts, I'm at one of the world's foremost globo gyms, unfortunately the same one I used to work at. However, it's right next to my apartment, and I'm planning on using my anger to get back to strength.

Two nights ago, I did the workout at the globo. Just did a starting strength workout to see how much I've lost. It was significant--I couldn't look myself in the eye afterword, which is difficult considering how many mirrors the narcissistic ego-stroking den has.

back squat 275x5,5,5
press 135x4(oops) 115x5,5
power cleans 155x5,5,5
pullups 20x8,8,8

All the while I couldn't stop thinking about making it out to the Crossfit gym, like thinking about your mistress all while not enjoying ****ing your wife.

Crossfit Singapore = awesome.

It's a great setting: warehouse, four lifting platforms, standard crossfit tools, rusty bars and no air conditioning. Oh, and no mirrors.

Oly workout to try and get some strength back:
DL 308x5,5,5
PwrCln 176x5 187x4,4 (last 2 reps full clean)
Jerk 176x5,5,5
OHS 110x10,10

5 consecutive muscle ups (pr) just to try out the rings at the end.

Looking forward to the painful bus commute many more times in the future.

Lets be honest now, I think your gym membership is the least of your problems.

You're right. Bad metaphor and in poor taste. I apologize.
