OMG!! Mario Sperry! I read about him in A Fighter's Heart, only Sam Sheridan kept referring to him as Ze Mario.
Yes, I read that book in Thailand at the beginning of this journey. =)
Have you read A Fighter's Mind yet? I can't find anywhere to steal it off the internet and I certainly won't find it on shelves around here, so I'll have to wait until I get back.
Today I was feeling a bit better, and figured I'd go try to combat all the unintentional weight and muscle loss going on out here. I got a bit overzealous and ended up doing a bit of a marathon workout. Dropped the weights slightly considering I'm out 20lbs and have haven't lifted in like 2 months.
DB Bench 3x6@75lbs
Military Press 3x6@95lbs
DB Rows 3x6@75lbs
Hammer Bar Curls 3x6@75lbs
Standing Calf Raises 3x6@180lbs

Leg Press (heel to ass)3x6@180lbs
DB Curl 3x6@42lbs
Close Grip Bench, Wide Grip Bench, Regular Bench
I enjoyed the gym experience out here, though they didn't have a proper squat rack. There's all the same nuances of gyms back home that make me laugh, the half reps, the spotters helping the lfits, the staring at your body in the mirror.
The girls choose very interesting attire to work out in. Reminds me of that Kylie Minogue music video. This country is a goddamn paradise of women...you wouldn't believe.
The receptionist girl that was showing me around and speaks a bit of english and was pretty friendly so I'm going to ask her out next time I'm there...which will be sooner rather than later =)
