After a cooldown, I had "my" row of Cybex machines all to myself, as God intended. There are 5: Dual-axis chest press: pecs, anterior deltoid and triceps Dual-axis overhead press: shoulders Arm curl: biceps Arm extension: triceps Ab crunch: abs My ideal upper-body routine, when there aren't other patrons running interference, is to do a set of 6-12 reps, move on to the ...
